I stayed home today see the doctor again. I have a bad infection and the doc wants to keep an eye on it.
Something that was said to me yesterday has my head spinning. I was talking to a dietitian friend of mine yesterday. I work with her. I was talking about my diabetes and this infection I have (which is the 2nd major one in 2 months now), I'm a little worried because this is what my Dad died from (complications of an infection due to diabetes). So I share my worries with her that I'm only 40 and I'm scared that complications are starting to arise in my health due to diabetes. I have worked with her in the past on my menus and my diabetes. She doesn't believe in Low Carb at all and makes it known to me frequently that she doesn't think I should be Low Carbing and doesn't believe it is the best thing for my health or my diabetes. We have went many rounds about this and we just usually agree to disagree. She again told me yesterday that I should be following the ADA diet recommendations. I again told her that even that diet was too high in carbs for me, that eating that many carbs per meal raises my BG so high I have to end up taking more insulin. (Okay, this is where it gets my head spinning) She told me that it's because I have been low carbing for so long that I have damaged my body's own ability to handle that many carbs and because I have been eating this way I may have done permanent damage to my body. This lady is a registered Dietitian !
I have always believed that what I'm doing is right thing for me. But I can't help but wonder, she has went to school, trained and worked in nutrition for more than 20 years. Could she be right?
Just for your FYI she also has a thing with doctors telling diabetics what to eat because she believes they should be referring those patients to a nutritionist. We have had the disagreement about what my doc says, I've showed her Dr. Berstein's book etc.
I just want to know what I'm doing is right and right for me. <<
