Patient Story: Diabetes, Ray from La CaÑada, CA

Real stories from the people we serve

Living with Diabetes Before Paracelsus

Before I came to see Dr. Barker, I had been diabetic for six years. I was on two different medications for my diabetes – on my way to three! And I took medication for my blood pressure. I was overweight, had lots of heartburn, and generally felt terrible.


Dr Barker put me on a strict diet and got me started on an exercise program and some supplements. He made himself very available to answer all my questions about the diet and my health along the way.


Within two week of seeing Dr. Barker for the first time, I had lost 10 pounds, my blood sugars had dropped 20 points and I was already off one of my diabetes medications. In three months, I lost over thirty pounds and was able to come off all of my medications. My heartburn was gone and my blood sugars were down into the 90s. My Hemoglobin A1C has now gone from 9.3 to 5.2. I haven’t felt this good in years! I’m even off most of my supplements!

I have seen people lose their feet to this disease. That was enough for me. Don’t wait! Take care of the problem now.
