Well in all the nuttyness I have been going through of late, getting set up with a new doctor was also part of all of that. New insurance, new doc and I was hoping for a new outlook.
I took my notes, my food journal and held my breath…
She is younger than I am by quite a bit and her empathy was AMAZING. I told her what I was doing on my own to control my diabetes and loose weight and she was thrilled that I had found something that worked for me. I didn't get a finger, an ADA reminder or even a "WHAT?!" at the high fat part of my diet. She smiled at the intermittent fasting with that "yes, go girl" look and I was so relieved. We talked in true conversation and I just felt very connected. Finally, I may have found the one that will work with me and not just scold me or shove pills down my throat.
I shared with her the doctors that were shaping my decisions such as Dr. Fung, Prof Noakes and a new one on my list from the Diabetes Summit.
So I got my first blood draw since I have started LCHF, so it will be interesting to see how the labs come in. Again…holding my breath.
