Recovering perfectionist learning to manage hypothyroidism and diabetes. Lots of fun for a competitive control freak with a sense of humor!

Low-carb eating plan lets me enjoy great food, keep my blood glucose under tight control, AND lowers my cholesterol, LDL, etc.

Shame on the ADA (American Diabetic Association) for being controlled by corporations and special interests that make BIG $$ enslaving millions of people to a lifetime of questionable medications instead of educating diabetics with proven science: A LOW CARB eating plan is the best protection against the ravages of diabetes. Forget "whole grains" and enjoy a meal of grass-fed beef, green, leafy vegetables dressed with REAL butter. etc., etc.

My Goals:
As a diabetic, my primary goal is to achieve the tightest possible control of my blood sugars in order to reduce the chances for serious complications.

My Program:
Carb restriction (between 35-50 grams total per day); increase high quality protein and good fat intake; stay active and WALK as much as possible, because I enjoy walking and it's great exercise.

Mary - I think some "docs" have their head buried really, really deep in the sand (or another part of their anatomy)! The sad thing is that thousands and thousands of diabetics never learn that THEY ARE IN CONTROL of their disease. It's not the doctor who loses limbs, eyesight, kidneys, brain; it's us if we don't do our own homework.

Sarah My DH is living with macular degeneration. He was told to use Preservision by his Eye Dr. We were told his macular degeneration id of the dry kind and if it changes to wet there is a surgery they can do, I was curious about the following paragraph.

If you do not take vitamins specifically for eye health, start. If you have dry macular degeneration supplements the retina specialist or eye clinic will tell you to take are the only thing that has the chance of slowing down the progression of the disease.

It appears you refer to" Dry macular degeneration supplements."
We have not heard about these yet what are they please.
I am hoping Preservision is one of them. Pat in Maine.
