Default Diabetes prevention

Medicare to Rollout Diabetes Prevention Program in 2018
One of the qualifications for eligibility is you have to be pre diabetic (no previous type 1 or 2 diagnosis except gestational diabetes). Guess what the big secret is? Exercise and lose weight, how long has that failed? Plus you get to go to classes.

They refuse to look at the core issues, nutritional standards were changed, problem intensifies. Continuation of nutritional standards, problem continues to intensify, and they still say exercise and lose weight.

You know, they COULD have been a source of real help all these years.

I'm very glad I already knew a bunch about diabetes and low-carbing for it. I pity the poor newly diagnosed diabetic who thinks if it's from ADA, it should be right.

Isn't that the truth.

I've come to consider being diagnosed with diabetes one of the best things that has ever happened to me. It led me here where I discovered the LCHF lifestyle.

Hmmm, it goes to the article for me at Medscape site. I do see a place at the top to log in or register, I assume that may be to access all their stuff. I am not registered with them so definitely not logged in. I accessed the article via google.

Try pasting the full link into the google.com search bar. That should let you access the article. You have to go to google.com first, then past the link into the search box.

I don't remember now, but I think I just did a google search for latest diabetes news and it was one of the hits. I guess I was confused because I could click the link in my post and it opened fine.

Aha, I see what yall see now when trying to do it from another computer.

And Papa's suggestion does work, I just tried it on this Window's puter w/IE
