Trouble is, the medical professionals prescribe epilim. A keto diet is no danger to health - & obviously we will watch her carefully & adapt as necessary. e,g, In their rejection of a low carb diet, the DUKs warn against constipation. Such a condition is readily corrected by diet adjustment, without increasing carbs. I followed the medical professionals - Dr & DUK/NHS - diet very carefully, reinforced by the local dietitian. They did warn me that diabetes was progressive - don't think you've failed when you get worse. In 8 years I was crippled with neuropathy. Dr suggested hospital investigation. This forum advised low carb & in 3 months I was out of pain & playing tennis again. TEN years ago. Still free of diabetes symptoms, still playing tennis at 78. Much better to follow the advice of people who HAVE triumphed over their condition.
