Thank you and well done in getting into remission!
Thank you! I’m really pleased that your nurse is supportive of LCHF too! I’m so pleased that I came across it 15 months ago as it’s changed my life and a lot of my patients! A patient bought me the 8 week blood sugar book and that was it, overnight change quite literally and never looked back!
Yes the Blood Sugar Diet book is great - I kick started everything off with that and then moved onto just LCHF and have lost 30 pounds and gone from HbA1c of 72 to 42. It's great to hear so many of your patients are benefiting from it.
You're welcome. I'd actually be interested in how you persuade patients who are, shall we say, less than happy about low carb. There will be a lot of forum members who will know someone who is less than enthusiastic and just "keep taking the tablets". Good Luck!
Hi. Yes you’re quite right not everyone is keen and everyone has totally different needs and their circumstances are all different. I wouldn’t force anyone to do anything they’re not happy with. Some patients completely go low carb and others reduce their carbs enough to make a difference; it may be giving up bread or eating way less or perhaps eating a lot less potatoes. Some just giving up all the rubbish (cakes, biscuits, sweets, choc, fizzy pop) is enough to make a huge difference. Other people just would rather continue to take their tablets and insulin and that’s their choice. For some it’s just easier as they have a whole host of stuff going on and thinking about their diet or cooking real food just can’t be done. Any small steps can help. I individualise my care and give as much support as I can. I also include other lifestyle advice/support with sleep, reducing stress and exercise.
Bumping this thread, as i belieaved voting closes today.
Yes, @ringi voting does close tonight!
Let's have one last push to get Catherine over the finish line:
Thank you everyone! Fingers crossed! Thanks so much for all your support, kind words and off course votes! xx
I do hope you win but if not never mind as you are a winner as far as every one here is concerned.
I'm with JRG ^^^^^^
Me Three ^^^
Thank you that’s so kind! It would be so great to win it for all the low carb community especially as the tide seems to be turning now! I’ve been invited by David Unwin to speak in Parliament on 27th June! We will be discussing type 2 diabetes remission and how there is hope! I’m so excited and so honoured to be asked to speak! Watch this space!
Great. Good luck. I've asked my MP to attend, though he'll probably have a subsequent engagement
Unfortunately I didn't see this thread until now. I just clicked on the link and was able to vote for Cath Cassell, and have received an email confirming my vote, so it might still be worth voting.
Anyway I wish you well @CassellCath!
Thank you! That’s great! it’s the APPG Diabetes meeting 5-7pm Fixing dad will be there too! Can’t wait!
Wow! Thank you so much!
