I had appointments with both a Diabetic Nutritionist and and Endo, Both agreed that my dietary changes were controlling my diabetes very well. However both had to "go over" the ADA and AMA recommendations with me. They had to "toe the company line" so to speak. Endo even stated he was a conspiracy theorist at heart lol. I think that the Drs for the most part are used to dealing with a complacent patient that WANTS medication so they do not have to change their behavior. We live in a medicate your health not a manage your health society. People want to "have their cake, and eat it too" (see what I did there lol ) When a Dr see's a patient that wants to think outside the box and try alternatives to what they view as the "norm" they don't know what to do with them. Our only recourse is to let our results speak for themselves

I bookmarked the site the day I got home from the doctor. Of course I didn't rely on that one alone and Snorebabe and I searched alot of sites. She came across this site and we love it for the people and information.

I read your post and thought I would visit the ADA site again. I went to the recipes and I am still amazed on the Carb and Sugar content of their "healthy" choices.

I can't wait to get back to the Dr. to see the look on his face when he sees my numbers! He basically wrote me off to using insulin in the near future. He didn't say it directly, but you could tell by the body language and tone of voice.

The ADA seems to not care about diabetics nearly as much as they do about keeping their corporate masters happy.

I can't believe I just typed that. I used to make fun of people for posting things like that on Internet forums. But I really don't know how else to explain the "advice" that they post on their site.

Yep. I got a similar message from my doc. Although I think he was intrigued by my lab results. I get the feeling he is hedging his bets though as to whether or not I'll be able to keep it up.

We shall see.
