Unhappy

Months ago I saw a shared link come across Facebook from the ADA, I voiced my opinion about how the ADA guidelines for daily carbs was only helping the drug companies make money and not helping people...boy did I get pounced on.talk about a one sided group.

Actually, it appears to me that all diabetes forums are moving in this direction, just some more quickly than others. I have re-visited several where anyone posting about LC/HF was promptly banned not so long ago and found large numbers, even majorities of posters now talking about the same great results from LC/HF. That's only logical because of it's higher success rate than any other way of addressing diabetes.

BTW, I'm mostly talking about T2s and forums either for T2s or with a majority of their posters. My apologies to my T1 comrades. From what I read, many T1s have benefited from LC/HF, too, but not so dramatically as T2s where it often the only treatment required.

It only appears to be LCHF forum only because we concentrate on "eat to your meter". Whatever amount of carbs you can eat and maintain healthy BG by your meter, then that is what matters.

It's just most here have worked their way to LCHF by following "eat to your meter". And as people are bound to do, when they find something that works for them, they praise it.

And as a T2, my diabetes will also never go away. Are you making a presumption that all T2's need to lose weight, or something, since you said that as a 1, you're not following a diet to lose weight?

You assumed it, not me. A majority of type 2 diabetics can control their diabetes by controlling their weight. And I said I am not on a diet just to lose weight because every time I read about LCHF people tell me how much weight I can lose. Being on a pump, I still watch what I eat and carb count but I don't need to cut out carbs altogether.

I think that's more like, a lot of type 2 diabetics can control their diabetes by controlling their carb intake, which is the whole point of LCHF eating. Glad to hear you like your pump. I read your other thread.

I didn't read that at all. I'm T2 and my diabetes has definitely "gone away". I lost weight, but don't really consider that relevant. I changed my diet as I needed to and weight loss was a "side-effect".

That is emphatically NOT TRUE. Please

Metabolic syndrome very often causes weight gain years before diabetes is actually diagnosed. When diabetes is finally diagnosed, and the patient presented as overweight, boom! . . . must be the weight that caused the diabetes.
