    update on low carb research by GP

    Post by Sally on Thu Oct 23 2014, 15:01

    Southport GP has just posted an update to his paper and research on encouraging his diabetic patients to go Low Carb, on the big forum.  You can find it here,
    http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/new-research-on-the-low-carb-diet-in-general-practice.53261/page-18

    For those who haven't already seen it, the original paper can be found here, [url=http://www.practicaldiabetes.com/SpringboardWebApp/userfiles/espdi/file/March 2014/PP Unwin final proofs revised.pdf

    Cheers Sally! Looks like another win for the cause! Smile I put my faith into Southport GP's advice any day of the week compared to DCUK's effort of a 'check in and chat' with Dr Hillary Jones!! affraid

    The Southport GP is a star for sure and the list of Doctors and Dietitians on our side gets longer by the week. BTW I know of another UK Doctor replicating the Southport GP's low carb trials and the results will be published next year.

    It's the only way to go, because nothing else works, as confirmed by the appalling audited statistics published by the NHS.

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 !

    Thanks Sally, the message is spreading slowly but surely. Evidence based research is getting stronger every year. Wake up NHS, low carb is the ONLY dietary advice that works.

    Lets hope the Southport GPs research leads to to a better understanding by other HCPs of the long term benefits of LC for Type2 diabetes. Our own personal evidence has always been dismissed as anecdotal by the naysayers, the Docs research hopefully will put an end to that and the many LC myths and scaremongering spread by the antis. Cool
