Low Carb Diet and Diabetes — 4 Comments

  1. Your site caught my attention because I’m also a diabetic (type 2) I agree with your recommendation of the diet doctor site. (WebMD and the Mayo clinic, not so much)

    On my own site, I link to the low carb diets on the diet doctor. I originally had plans to set up my own recipe section, but it’s been done so well that site, I just point folks their way.

    I’m bookmarking your site because you cover so many of my own interests. Low carb is definitely the way to go. It got me off my meds!

    • Hello ChazzBrown, it’s great to meet you too and nice to know I’m not alone in this although, it’s not great that you have this disease too. It’s great that you are off all meds? How long did it take you to do that greatness? It’s a lot of hard work mentally keeping track of everything so it is good to keep a written journal of sorts. I keep an excel file on my computer of my glucose readings. Do you ever get to a point where you just must have something rich and gooey and decadent? Boy, I sure do and then it’s hard deciding what it’s going to be.

      Thanks for letting me know about your own site…I wish you would have left me the URL so I could fetch a link to it.

      Take care of yourself and keep me posted once in a while how things are going for you!


  2. Hi Rene

    Once I discovered intermittent fasting, it took just over a month to beat my glucose levels that I was able to maintain with meds. But I stopped taking the meds as soon as I began fasting. All my meds require you to eat while taking them. I’m Leaving my site URL below.

    • Hi Charles: Thanks for coming back to add what you did to accomplish getting off your medications. I think that the Metformin and Glipizide are taken with food because they are supposed to help with the sugar in my diet and like you said, if I was fasting, there wouldn’t be any sugar to help remove. On top of that if I were to take those medications without food, I would probably find myself in a world of hurt since trying to remove sugar that is not there would probably leave me in a terrible low blood glucose situation which could become a dangerous place to be. So, intermittent fasting was the key for you? I will have to study up on what that is all about and do a post for my site.
      The 2nd thing I wanted to ask you, I don’t see any link for your website or your URL anywhere here? Can you please kick it back to me? Thanks very much; have a great weekend.
