Terrible advice. A lot of people would be dead if they listened to that.

I can't agree 100% but I do think big pharma wants to maintain a lot of illnesses and less curing of an illness for sure. The heath authorities may not be intentionally doing that but the payment system to the Doctors and Health practitioners can cultivate a more maintenance approach rather than a cure approach.

There are a lot of ads on TV now about diabetes and options of medication. Better advice to be taken from a physician that knows patient history.

For type 2 - Metformin for sure... then diet & exercise (a basic guide is to follow a low carb or keto type diet)... and of course as suggested consult your physician. :up:

Not everyone can take Metformin as it is very hard on the Kidneys. That's why I am taking insulin. Started taking Jardiance recently too which has a side effect of some weight loss. That doesn't hurt either. lol
I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.

Sorry to hear that (sincerely)... just curious, was your adverse reaction to Metformin due to the med itself, or was your kidneys compromised due to type 2 or due to some other factor?

100% of people who follow doctors advice about diabetes - don't get better.

You would think that health authorities in Fiji could do something about this fact:
"When we say 'one amputation every twelve hours', about 40 per cent of the surgery done in this country is for amputation," he said. https://www.rnz.co.nz/international/pac ... ji-surgery
But then again, Canada's health authorities have done NOTHING, ZERO about this fact:
Diabetes cases hit record 382 million worldwide
By 2035, number of diabetes cases predicted to soar to 592 million
https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/diabetes ... -1.2426381
How hard would it be to mandate nutrition "restrictions" in schools?

We could take the cheap masks and vaccines and Bonnie Henry and flush them all down the drain - and start teaching "farmers markets, local produce, and healthy meals" lessons to everyone, especially dumb kids.
Of course big pharma would lose $billions - maybe $trillions.

Please, Please, Please get one, two, three, four, and maybe five doses of the quickly developed most fanatically promoted dirt cheap $1.00 thing in human history - the DREADED COVID VACCINE! "It's Just Like a Drivers License"

My Kidneys were compromised due to a long stay in the ICU and massive doses of antibiotics. Damaged my hearing as well.

Good News is I'm still here. (Some posters might think otherwise. lol)

Had I followed the advice of my doctor I would still be on medication. I went on a low carb diet and ditched the blood pressure medication so I am now free. My HbA1c has always been 5.0 or so no diabetes to worry about.
I saw a meta analysis and there is no proof that any blood pressure medication keeps you alive any longer than a week or two so what is the point?
There is still debate about animal protein vs. a vegetarian diet but we do know that a diet of animal fat and protein does not kill you as witnessed in the Inuit but I am not sure about longevity.

Thank you for that.
The fascinating that got me turned around is that a number of researchers around the world were waking up to the fact that the human body is designed to run on fat and does so more efficiently than does glucose which produces much more reactive oxygen species as a by product.
Jeff Volek demonstrated that runners, cyclists and ultra marathoners were more efficient burning fat as fuel vs. carb burners.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFqjqqJTJQ4
If you prefer books, this one by Volek and his partner and the man who started the movement, Stephen Phinney will give you some good insight
https://www.amazon.ca/Art-Science-Low-C ... 0983490716
He is really one of the pioneers of the movement toward fat as fuel.
Another good resource is Dr Paul Mason
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF3buYQWJ3E
Also, Dr Tim Noakes
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Noakes
is a South African Doctor who was sued by the Nutritionists association because he tweeted to a mother that it was safe for an infant to be on a ketogenic diet.
It took years for the lawsuit to wind through the courts and he was ultimately exonerated because his team had all the evidence.
A not well known fact is that babies are in a state of nutritional ketosis when they are born and can last quite long under adverse conditions because of their fat stores.
