I haven't eaten carbs in 20+ years and as far as I can tell I am not brain dead!

I think this is a good question and all the answers are basically tied to personal responsibility we take for our health outcome. (except for the comments regarding the USDA)....I will add to that theme...

Medicine has not always been controlled strictly by Governments, now as an industry it is! This adds the possibility of other influences outside of 'medical' influences are possible if not just down right corruption. Add to that the large pharmaceutical companies, and you understand that the possibility for corruption and influence is possible in our medical professions. In the USA you cannot watch a TV program without hearing about a new medication that your doctor can give you that will fix what you have going on! Then they tell you the very long list of risks that come with that drug...to me that all kinda says it all for me! As a diabetic I have had my doctors push new drugs at me repeatedly. Back in 2006 I actually started taking Januvia. That year I had 4 serious lung infection that each put me on strong antibiotics to get well! I stopped Januvia and have not had a problem in my lungs since! That sealed the deal for me....

I hurt my shoulder last December - trying to exercise immediately after being diagnosed. (Another diabetes complication!) It's been on and off achy since then, but last week I had a really bad pain when I was playing with my dog: felt like my shoulder was wrenched out of its socket. Pain and aching in my whole arm, then gradually reducing back to my shoulder.

Finally decided to have a doctor look at it; could only get into the medical assistant. When I told her it had been so bad my whole arm hurt, she insisted it must be a neck problem; only neck pain radiates down the arm. I said, "No, this is a shoulder problem." She disregarded my comments. Sent me down for multiple X-rays: mostly neck, a couple shoulders.

::Sigh::

I so wanted to pause her and say, "You know, the nerve that runs down into my hand and arm passes through my shoulder, right? So... if the shoulder were wrenched hard enough, might that nerve not get jangled at the shoulder position, and thus cause the aching I felt lower down? I HAVE NEVER HURT MY NECK, nor does my shoulder hurt depending on how I hold my neck, which has complete mobility and never causes pain in my arm or hand."

I went to the VA two months ago, do not get me wrong I love the VA and what they do for us vets. I have now had 3 different docs in three years. The guy I had this time was as young as could be, he followed the ADA plan to the T. I had to watch my tongue, I almost got kicked out, his blood pressure went up and he turned red. I am sure my records have non compliant stamped all over it. I asked so have you ever tested a type 2 bg after telling them to eat 5 fruits and day and oatmeal and whole grain breads and cereals. His response was I do not care if your bg goes up to 400 eat it anyways. Well now I know better but feel so bad for all the others that have 0 clue that will take his advise and then find out what we all have, high carb does not work for most of us type 2.

And then there are forums like this, that are doing a GREAT service to the world diabetic community by providing verifiable information to someone who needs help because their doctor(s) are so unwilling to think outside their medically taught and pharma industry supported paradigms. I have been diagnosed for approximately 15 years and was only informed of this lchf a few weeks ago when I found this forum. Since then I have researched and begun the lchf diet with remarkable results. Everyday my fasting number drops lower (today it was 113), I have lost about 3 pounds, my blood pressure is down and I'm feeling great. The only difficulty I'm having is formulating my meals and snacks so that the macro-nutrient numbers are where they should be. That is a good problem to have. Thank you everyone for your inspiration and support!

Perfect!

You've been away far too long, my friend . . . I've seen you logged in a few times, but no posts. How are things going up there? Take care of yourself & don't be a stranger!

I too only found out about this forum in April of this year and after doing all the reading and research, I jumped into LCHF as of 5/1/15! Like you the results to date have been life changing. My A1c last fall was 7.9, in my first blood test after LCHF in July I was at 6.0! Everything else in my health have improved dramatically. I also have lost over 35lbs so far.

What's not to like....we all are living this together...

The 'old timers' who are on here everyday helping and encouraging us all surely understand the impact they are having on our lives and the lives of our families! God Bless them one and all....
