    Adapting diabetes medication for low carbohydrate management of type 2 diabetes: a practical guide
    Campbell Murdoch, David Unwin, David Cavan, Mark Cucuzzella and Mahendra Patel
    British Journal of General Practice 2019; 69 (684): 360-361. DOI: https://doi.org/10.3399/bjgp19X704525

    Should we be pointing everyone with type2 who are on drugs to this paper recomending they print out a copy and take it to their GPs? By doing so we are also letting people know what they need to consider with any drugs that they may be taking without giving them any advice.

    Reading it through it seems well thought out.
    If a doctor feels insulted by being given this by a patient, the problem is with the doctor not the patient - in my personal view.
