    How delusional can a person get?



    _________________
    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 !

    It's the cakes mate you know how much BDA dietitians love it, the sight of a sugary confection is like a magnet to them  Rolling Eyes



    Does DAFNE produce a safe A1c for T1's 

    The provision of the DAFNE (Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating) structured education course is increasingly suggested for the management of type 1 diabetes. An assessment of HbA1c over a 7 year period is summarised

    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1464-5491.2011.03525.x/abstract

    John summarised the results on our blog:


    So with the best educational provision currently available over a 7 year period a reduction in HbA1c of 0.3% to an average of 8.3% was achieved and thought to be clinically relevant! The tragedy of accepting average HbA1c in the region of 8.3%  is illustrated in the post:

    I've read not a few Type 1s slating DAFNE. Several of them have pointed towards a much better online course by BDEC - Bournemouth Diabetes And Endocrinology Centre - which is free. DAFNE costs money, how else do you think they can afford the cake?

    Easy to see why a dietitian would be attracted to DAFNE their diet advice could sit well with an A1c of >8 and a big slice of cake after the session
