    The real dangers of LCHF and fasting

    No mention of scurvy or constipation lol!

    George Henderson, one of my favourite bloggers, has written a post about real medical conditions that may be worsened by LCHF or fasting. With his usual dry humour, he has subtitled it: "From the Department of Due Diligence".

    The trouble is the antis will use that type of post to confuse the newbies, I have seen it done so many times. Just check out Phoenix and some of her posts at the flog regarding Franziska's post on her blog. The reality is highly elevated blood glucose levels can destroy every tissue in the body, 100% of the time in 100% of the people, given a long enough time scale.

    Always remember, death can be fatal.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
