    _________________
    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 !

    Good video.

    I liked his 'observational studies are no substitute for a patient with a glucometer' line.

    I had my bloods done today and sitting there waiting for my ticket to come made me quite depressed, I was surrounded by people who did not look well, probably not all diabetic, but a good number must have been.

    I felt that some will be non-compliant but most will be doing their best to follow the advice that they are given and that advice is leading them to early graves. They are going to die young and unwell because the advice they get is nonsense.

    That's why I keep posting about low-carb because I feel morally obliged to do so; where does hope come from other than from the low-carb loonies and crazies who keep howling at the moon?

    A bloke would have to be stark raving mad promoting a low carb diet to diabetics year in and year out, there must be a shed load of money in it. No

    "That's why I keep posting about low-carb because I feel morally obliged to do so"

    The above few words are some of what Dillinger said.



    But I also think it is so important to keep spreading the low carb message, it helps diabetics enormously to safer blood sugar numbers .... but speaking as a non diabetic by restricting sugars and carbs so many others can also see health and weight issues improved.


    It's LCHF for me  sunny

    All the best Jan

    And you can't get a better patient than a diabetic health professional to demonstrate the fact, check out Dr Stapleton's before an after BG charts in the video.
