I am interested in following a Bernstein influenced low carb approach
with my 15 year old son. He is in honeymoon and on only 1 unit of Lantus.
Last time I saw his Endo I told her that lowering his carbs immediately lowered his need for insulin. She yelled "carb restriction".
Today's ADA recommendations are formulated on a grain based, milk chugging, insulin producing society.
I am looking for a supportive Endo in the Chicago land area that will support what I am doing.
Nutrient density is important. Fat is important for the growing teens brain.
But adulterated over processed grains that wreak havoc on the autoimmune system are not.
Please contact me immediately if you know of someone.
