It's a battle, Lanie, it really is.
There's a very strong consensus among the people who really matter, we diabetics, that low carb is the most rational, effective, beneficial and safe means of normalising blood glucose and controlling diabetes, bar none.
The vested interests in pharmacology, medicine and politics are very slow to catch on unfortunately. It's shameful that they are not only resistant to change but do their best to discredit anything that contradicts their dogma.
There is hope though. This month a group of us are having a Parliamentary launch of a new healthcare initiative here. The first pilot project, hopefully, will be a trial of carb retriction on type 2 diabetics to test the impact on blood glucose, insulin levels, and lipids. Now we have a fair idea what the results will show, don't we?
Fingers crossed that we're in the early days of a better nation.
All the best,
