Default First doctors visit since starting my new life

Yesterday was my first followup visit since starting my new LCHF lifestyle... He was stunned that I lost 21 lbs. in 1 month. and stared at the blood meter printout. He asked how many units of insulin I was taking a day,I told him it was according to how many carbs . I mentioned the LCHF diet ..."don't get wrapped up in all that" was his comment. He did an in office Ac1 test ,it showed 6.5 ,down from 8.9 last month. He said the in office test is not as accurate as the lab, but his eyes were wide open when he saw results. He was then interested in the LCHF diet and wanted more info. I gave him the Diet Dr. site . when he returned he then said he may need to lower my statin ,or take me off of it. He is a young doctor and told me he is always open to new ideas if they work.

Fantastic job, Wayne, and I'm so happy you have a doctor who is willing to listen and learn from the people who experience the disease!

Congratulations on all the improvements - that's pretty impressive work.

It's so good to learn about a doctor whose mind is open to new approaches. Sounds like he's a keeper.
