I had no idea this forum had such a wide readership. This morning I received an email from the the head of the CDC Research Division in Atlanta. I thought I might share it with you.

Hey DUUUUDE,

What's with all the bad juju you were laying on us yesterday? We're Doctors here man. We've all taken the hypocritical oath and a lot of other heavy sh**! You shouldn't be talking about us like that.

We're busy right now. We're studying whether medical marijuana should be legalized or not for the FED. We've been studying it a lot !!!! Besides, we got problems down here. It snowed and I can't get my Beemer out of the frigging parking lot. We don't have time to worry about what some old dust farters with no toes should be eating.

Feel the love brother. Just eat your jelly donut and go back to your Bingo game and stop writing all that vile crap about us.

Got to go now. It's time for another bowl of research.

Love and peace!!!

I'm ashamed to admit that I used to actually believe a lot of that stuff, in the 90s when I was first DXed and for quite some time afterwards. And doing what they said actually worked for me for a while. Problem was it is damn near impossible to continue doing what they recommend in the long term, and then when you inevitably fail, they make you feel like it's your fault.

Dogg, you speak for so many of us on so many different levels: 'fear the fat', cholesterol causes heart disease, Doctor said not to worry about this or that D and/or non-D symptom, if every human being on earth took this one supplement then every human being would soon be at their perfect weight...

When I think back over my own journey, I am overwhelmed with gladness I finally got around to understanding only I can be responsible for me.

This comes at a really sore spot in my life, too. I've been completely irritated to an even greater extent lately with the ADA, the doctors that promote carbs in a diabetic's diet and whole high carb issue. Mom's vision is half gone, I have family members with increased A1C's (16 diabetics in this family), and all I see around these people are the mountains of carbs they eat at every meal. Rice at every meal or a portion of bread or potato or whatever, followed by pasties for dessert, simply because someone following ADA standards says that it's healthy for diabetics. If I hear 'good for diabetics' and 'carbs' in the same sentence used ever again, I swear I may just hurl.

Sorry ... venting. It's food for goodness sake. It's not like we live in times where there's a limited supply. Find a replacement food!!!! Grrr.

Thanks ... went off a bit there. It's just unreal. I was standing in line at the grocery store the other day and there was a Diabetes -something type magazine on the rack by the register. Of course, there was a nice piece of Chocolate Silk pie gracing the cover.

The previous posts that I made on this thread were obviously jokes, but the truth is there's very little to laugh about when it comes to the way the medical community perceives Type 2 diabetes.

I think most doctors view it as not all that serious and a loosing battle. There is no cure, the medications available are not all that effective, and the outcome is inevitable. They follow the conventional guidelines for treatment, but they know that most of their patients will get much worse anyway.

For those of us that have chosen another path to fight our disease thru exercise and a LCHF diet we find their attitude appalling. What we need to remember is WE'RE the ones stepping outside the box. What we're doing is not approved by any of the major health organizations. A doctor wouldn't dare prescribe this type of treatment because of the possible sanctions and legal problems that may arise if things didn't go well. Hell, we're even shunned by other diabetics as lunatics following a dangerous diet.

I feel very fortunate that I found this site. I think the results I've achieved in a few short months are nothing short of remarkable. Unfortunately my joy in this is tempered by the fact that I know there are millions of others that weren't lucky enough,or brave enough, or maybe smart enough to find and follow this WoE. They're dutifully following the dogma prescribed by their medical advisers and getting sicker by the day and don't even know it.

It's truly a sad situation.
