I've had Type 1 diabetes for 48 years, my husband has had Type 2 for over 10. 5 months ago I found a new doctor who prescribed the book "The Diabetes Diet" by Richard Bernstein M.D. Dr. Bernstein himself has had Type 1 diabetes since 1947 and is still going strong.
The objective is to normalize
blood sugar levels; that is, attain blood sugar levels that non-diabetics enjoy. Normalizing blood sugars prevents and can reverse many of the complications associated with diabetes.
It is an extremely low carb diet, carbs primarily coming from plenty of green veggies and the conversion of protein into carbohydrate during metabolism. My husband and I have been following this for about 6 months now and we are definitely experiencing greatly improved blood sugars plus losing weight, which has previously seemed impossible.
Dr. Bernstein explains in a very "user friendly" way how carbohydrate consumption and insulin work in the body and affect blood sugar levels.
We are extremely happy about the results and progress we are experiencing from learning and using this invaluable information.
Good health begins with good information
