This was the dialogue during a recent appointment: Dr. (after reviewing my BSL record): "It's good to see your blood sugars are normal. It must be the medications that you are on." Me: "Well actually, I halved my medications. I have drastically reduced my carb intake" Dr: "No, you must not do that! Your body needs carbs!" Me: "Why does my body need carbs?" Dr: "Your body need carbs for energy. Without it you won't have any energy." Me: "But I have more energy now than when I was consuming lots of carbs." Dr: "You MUST have some carbs" Me: "But that will only increase my blood sugars." Dr: "That is why you have your medications" Currently I'm looking for a new doctor for future consultations!
