The Doctors welcome back “Judge Judy" star Officer Petri Byrd, who came to The Doctors last year to find why he was having a spike in his A1C levels. He joins us to share an update on his health.
Officer Byrd is happy to announce his levels have dropped and his numbers are "going in the right direction and going lower."
He credits his lower blood sugar levels with new lifestyle changes including his recent marriage. His wife Makita shares that she is helping her husband make healthy food choices, including eating more home-cooked meals.
One of his favorite new food swaps is opting for riced cauliflower over white rice. "It's the greatest discovery ever becasue I'm a rice fiend," he says.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says Officer Byrd is a great example for others dealing with diabetes. "That simple shift from regular old white rice to cauliflower rice, such a huge benefit," he says, noting that the "Judy Judy" star serves an inspiration.
