Customer Question

Is there an endocrinologist out there who understands that maintaining dietary ketosis with a low carb high fat diet, is beneficial in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes? I need support and I am tired of having poisons pushed on me (carbs,wholegrains,fruits) as part of a 'healthy balanced' diet! Help!
JA: The Endocrinologist can help. To begin, any recent weight loss/gain? Are you excessively thirsty?
Customer: Yes and no
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Endocrinologist should know?
Customer: Type 2 diabetes

Good evening, thanks for your question and curiosity of managing your diabetes with diet. This is certainly wise, but depends on a number of factors.

Can I ask what your Hba1c level is? also your BMI (or weight and height)?
