I'm so happy that the low carb solution to diabetes is becoming more known. It sure works for me, and I'm back on the low carb way of eating after a rather long hiatus during which I gained 20 pounds and started to get numb feet again.
I'm a fan of Dr Richard Bernstein's approach, which I admit is hard to follow. Google him to find his free website if interested. He's a type one diabetic who has tested his methods on himself, and has written a couple of books about his findings. I saw him on D Life one evening a few months ago, debating a dietician who was advocating the current ADA high carb diet, and he closed with "Just try this and test your blood sugars--there's the proof."
We are all an "n" of one in trying to figure out what works for our personal health, but with a glucose meter and the ability to read all around a topic with the wonder of the internet we can be our own specialists. Best of luck to all you diabetics out there--we have so much more to go on than previous generations now that we have glucose meters.
