T.F. presented to this office with the chief complaint of exogenous obesity and cervical pain. His past medical history included a severe rear end collision some 8 years ago, plastic surgery as a result of that accident, tonsillectomy, and a childhood leg injury. His current medical history includes prescription medications for hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and daily injectable insulin for diabetes.
T.F. stated that he was tired all the time and his endocrinologist was concerned because even on insulin, his blood glucose level rarely dropped below 375. He had been on insulin for more than 12 years. He had chronic neck pain and had come to the office to appease his wife, who wanted him to be healthier.
T.F. weighed 361 pounds and was 5’10.5” tall. His blood pressure was 150/92 (on medication), his blood glucose was 392. His UA was normal with the exception of glucose (which was 2000+). There was decreased dermatomal sensation in the lower extremities, bilaterally, and all other neurological signs were within normal limits. We discussed multiple treatment options and mutually agreed upon a natural diet with supplements and the SHAPE Program.
Method of Treatment
T.F was put on a calorie-monitored diet and SHAPE ReClaimed. He was to keep a diet history for at least the first 2 weeks and take the SHAPE Drops 1 ml tid. He was instructed to add .5 ml doses if he had any food cravings, initially. He was to return weekly to the office to chart changes in his BP, UA, weight and BIA (Body Impedence Analysis). He was also taking a probiotic and a balanced vitamin B complex.

On 06/01, T.F.’s physician took him off insulin, as well as all other diabetes medications. His cholesterol at that time was 201 and his hypercholesterolemia and hypertension medications were minimized. His PMD was reluctant to remove all medications, but was open to continue decreasing the dosages. Using his BIA measurements, his 63 lbs. of weight loss consisted of 56 lbs. of non-lean mass (fat) and 7 lbs. of muscle. Currently, (August), he weighs 265 and is still not taking any diabetes medications). The break in his visits (04/14 to 05/11) was precipitated by his daughter’s wedding.
By utilizing a nutritious diet (as recommended in the patient guidebook) and the SHAPE Drops, T.F. was able to jump start a healthier state of being. When provided a healthy foundation, the human body is capable of returning to a healthy state.
The SHAPE Program provides the means to facilitate this return to normal by helping to recalibrate the mid-brain to a new basal metabolic rate. This new rate appears to be maintained and our experience is that all continue to maintain this healthy state.
This case is typical of what we experience with our SHAPE patients.

Dr. Todd’s Teaching Assessment
To date, every type 2 diabetic patient seen in my office has either dramatically reduced or totally eliminated their need for insulin support. The speed and consistency in which glucose spilling in the urine is rapidly reduced and/or eliminated.
Using medication to correct any lifestyle illness will only manage the disease, not get to the root of what caused the lifestyle illness in the first place. Because the SHAPE Program brings about swift improvement in overall health, while decreasing excess weight, it grabs the patient’s attention within weeks. Their motivation to continue is increased greatly.
This case is a classic example of an individual that was not controlling their blood sugar, even while taking insulin injections.
Noted is his BIA – 56 of the 64 pounds lost was fat. We’re often asked if weight loss experienced with the SHAPE Program is fat or muscle. While we do not measure BIA/BMI in our clinic, many of our SHAPE practitioners do and this response is consistent with what is reported back to SHAPE Central.
