Have you ever disagreed with your doctor's plan for your type 2 diabetes management? If so, what did you do? Please share your experiences with us!
Although my doctor told me I have type 2 diabetes and left the test results for me to read he gave me no advice on how to manage it. I guess I'm on my own. Not even sure what device I need to check blood sugar.
Went keto, got off all meds. My a1c went from 11.4 to 4.9 in 3 months
Yes!!! My husband is the one with T2D, diagnosed a year ago. Three years ago, though, he showed up as borderline and ignored it. The doctor wasn't helpful then, and we didn't know what to do, so we proceeded with life as always. Well, this past January when his A1C was really high, they just stuck him on Metformin, told him to watch what he eats, and sent him on his way. That was it. I 100% disagreed with their treatment "plan." I finally got hubby to agree to see an endocrinologist (who is horrified he's not checking blood sugar regularly/daily) and have an appointment for a dietician.
I agree that there are some positive benefits from eating Keto; however, not everyone is medically able to do Keto. If Keto is something that your husband really wants to do, then maybe there is a way that he could do a modified Keto eating plan. You can ask the dietitian if there are some Keto principles that can be used that won't affect your husband's heart condition. Ultimately, if that's not the case, then continue to work together with the dietitian to come up with a eating plan that will work for him. Please keep us updated!- CJ, Community Moderator
