I know some people may find this offensive and all I can say is that I'm sorry and that this post does not come from a place of malicious intent. Ok, here goes.
After coming across a few posts in regards to managing diabetes by severely restricting carb intake, I felt the need to talk with a couple of doctors, a diabetes education nurse, and a diabetes nutritionist. All four medical professionals were not comfortable with a person allowing themselves 50 grams or less of carbs in his or her diet in order to manage diabetes.
I haven't figured out how to add a link to my posts yet while using my smartphone. Otherwise I would cite resources for anyone to look at.
I Googled "too few carbs" and found a lot of sound, clinical information.
I am only suggesting that if you are consuming a minimal amount of carbs, take a look at some of this information. If there is any clinical information that proves that a person can live a sustained, healthy life while consuming 50 grams or less of carbs, I would like to see said information. I will be more than happy to admit that I am wrong if that be the case.
One last thing. It struck me while researching this that a person living this sort of extreme diet is in fact not managing their diabetes. Diabetes is managing you.
With concern and love,
