Default Had to Pick Myself Up Off the Floor

I had to take hubby down to the orthopedic doctor for a frozen shoulder.
The doctor came in and asked him what is BG number was. He told him what his last a1c was which to me wasn't low enough for me, but hubbies don't like to listen.

So the doc said, I'm a diabetic and lose the carbs. Carbs is what is killing us. And he said get rid of all grains. Hubby and I have argue about this constantly, and I was tired of eating two different ways.
So now he is convinced since he heard it from an Orthopedic doctor.

It's awesome that an orthopedic doctor GETS this and is telling his patients. And good call, a frozen shoulder is almost always the result an impaired glucose metabolism. All the PT in the world will not fix the damage of a bad diet.

I know one thing, if I need an orthpedic doctor he won my heart over.

Even he held up his hand and his finger pinched together about a 1/4 of inch, and said whole is only this bunch better than regular.

Fantastic. It's music to the ears when it comes from the fraternity who is so "dead" against the LCHF. They still refuse to utter the HF magic words, but they will.

I have always felt that the tide will turn by 2020. Some disagree, but I'm confident it will (to a very large degree).

With insulin resistance soaring beyond epidemic numbers.....

It seems to me, these days, many studies and articles no longer say, 'If you have the genetic propensity then IR can advance to T2'? It seems to me, more and more they say, 'If not controlled, IR leads to T2'.....

With T2 rising like a tide......

........ I think the word really is beginning to get out: eat more carbs than your system can handle, and bad things happen.

I find it kind of interesting that many of the dr's that are open to lc/hf are in specialties rather than GP's. My PCP takes a don't ask don't tell attitude toward lc/hf while my MO (Medical Oncologist) is always asking me about it, even to the point of asking for recipes. I wonder why that is??

My GP falls on the side of "uhuh" (you know, that disbelieving noise they make) even though my endo absolutely gets the low carb thing. She isnt yet convinced of HF, but is moving towards it. At least she doesnt dismiss it. I think I need to get her to put in her next letter to my GP (she always sends a report after I see her) that I am doing LCHF and its a good thing. LOL
