    I probably can't add much here since I know that low carb is the way to go.

    Hi Dillinger, and everyone, it's nice to see so many here, what a fabulous first day ...and as I drink my late cuppa (had to come out of Thommo's Bar) the kettle was boiling in the kitchen.

    Here's to you all.

    All the best Jan

    Hello,

    My name is Franziska. I don't have diabetes, but I'm a dietitian who believes carb restriction is the best option for people with DM or insulin resistance. Thanks for starting this forum, Eddie, Jan, Graham, Paul, and any Low Carb Diabetic team members I've forgotten Smile

    Hi everyone. I'm from near Seattle living in the country on our little homestead with chickens, turkeys, and a large garden. I retired three years ago from Microsoft.

    I blame my diabetes, at least in part, on my 7 years of a 'heart healthy' low fat diet along with medications (including statins). Since my diagnosis I have been trying to learn as much as I can about diabetes and metabolic diseases. Books that I have read include Bernstien, Taubes, Phinney, Volek, Teicholz, and Kendrick. I also visit many blogs and forums each day. And I am now taking a biochemistry/genetics class so that I can more easily understand medical and scientific papers.

    Overall I am very appalled by the 'official' advice given to people with diabetes and other metabolic diseases. I would like to see this changed and hope that I can do my share to make this happen.

    Couldn't agree less, Denise! I always look for your very informative posts about the causes of fatigue whenever the subject is raised. I'm a cheerleader for Vitamin D3 but you have the whole spectrum covered and go out of your way to explain things to people  cheers

    Hello to everyone!  Smile  I am very excited about this new low carb forum. Reducing my carbs changeable life and I would recommend it to anyone as being essential to good control. Great to see so many familiar faces. All of the very best luck and good fortune to this new venture.
