    The reason we fight for the cause.

    Post by Eddie on Sun Jan 08 2017, 20:04

    It must be obvious to almost all, our little team enjoys blogging, we have been doing so for over eight years on various sites. Every now and again we get a comment that really fires us up, and motivates us to work harder for the cause. This comment came in yesterday.

    "I'm a low carber. My Dr got me started for my diabetes, high blood pressure and advancing kidney disease. I have been eating low carb for a year and 2 months now, I've lost 115.8 lbs. I'm no longer classified as a diabetic, I no longer have high blood pressure and my kidney profile is now normal. I don't do a lot of exercise, but I do walk about 1 1/2 to 2 miles a day. When I started, I had to use a mobility scooter. I turned 62 a month after I started the life change. I'm 63 now and healthier than I was at 33. I love your blog and recipes. Thank you." Diane Wesson

    As you have read, a lady going from a very poor place, and suffering very serious health problems, to almost being reborn. I defy anyone, including medical professionals, to tell me this could have been achieved in any other way, other than a low carb diet, or as we prefer to say low carb lifestyle. Diets imply a temporary change, to maintain a life long change, the changes have to be made for life. No drugs would ever have achieved the fantastic turnaround Diane has made in her health.


    _________________
    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 !

    We've seen many others achieving sustained improvements through low carb but still the anti's are in denial claiming it's only anecdotal. 

    The one thing I've yet to see is stories of diabetes reversal by following the so called evidence based dietary guidelines constantly spouted by dietitians and other HCP's doubt we will ever see any either

    Well you're not meant to! Reversal of diabetes is "inappropriate", didn't you get the memo?

    Yeah, people have been inappropriately reversing their diabetes to my knowledge for about 14 years now, thousands of them in places like the ADA Forum but have the ADA noticed?

    If they wanted to they could have studied these "just anecdotes" and had 14 years of data by now, instead they just bleat about there being "insufficient evidence".

    The likes of Richard Bernstein and people who were diagnosed back in pre-HCLF days go back even further of course.

    Hardly likely to study the anecdotes when there are vested interests to consider, multinational food companies and big pharma would not be happy in a change of (beneficial to them that is) dietary guidelines.

    The good news is the likes of the ADA are coming under ever increasing scrutiny

    Anyone hear what this is about?

    drmalcolmkendrick.org’s DNS address could not be found.

    Censored or just forgot to pay the bill?

    Dr Zoe Harcombe, PhD ‏[ltr]@zoeharcombe[/ltr]  57m[size=1]57 minutes ago[/size]
    Many thanks to @SamFeltham & the person who let us know @malcolmken 's site was down. We alerted MK & his hosting co. has sorted it :-)

    Thanks for this Graham ... I've just tried it again and it's still down, but hopefully they will sort it soon.
    Interestingly Eddie has just told me that after reading Chris's post last night he tried it and did get on it ... although he can't now! So maybe maintenance is ongoing...

    Weird stuff happening! I got kicked offline and my router failed to reconnect automagically as it usually does. Tried rebooting and failed twice. Shut it down for ten minutes and tried again, and I was back online, and so was Malcolm Kendrick.

    Maybe Donald Trump is hacking, getting ready to invade Bradford. There've been Apaches flying around here the last few days.

    Yeah it's not really the Russians but the CIA PRETENDING to be Russians.

    I've noticed a few other websites disappearing and reappearing too.
