Nina eliminated insulin in 3 months after taking it for 20 years

I’ve been diabetic for 30 years. I’ve been on insulin
for at least 20 years. I knew I needed to make
a lifestyle change. I always kind of joked
sort of with my husband and said, you know, with all
my health problems, you’ll probably outlive me. And he would say, don’t
do that, don’t say it. But it was the truth. And I got to a little
over 190 pounds. And I said, whoa. Something’s got to happen. I want to get healthy,
I want to live longer, and I want to get
off of my insulin. The Virta program is giving
a person the opportunity to make a choice in
changing their life. They’re not pushing
medicines, they’re trying to encourage
you to be better at maintaining your own health. I dropped off of
100 units of insulin in the first two
to three months. I’m not tied to eating
unless I’m hungry. I’m not tied to my
medicine, my shots. My legs are not
tingling anymore, they don’t feel like
pins and needles. You know, I don’t ache. I can walk. I’m in an exercise program. I have energy. I feel good from
the moment I get up. I’m freer. The other day, I
said, you know, I talked to you about that you’d
probably outlive me, but I’m not too
sure about that now. I said, I think I’m going to
give you a run for your money. And he said, I think so too. When the doctor told me I
looked 20 years younger, I think I feel 20
years younger too. I really do. [MUSIC PLAYING]
