Hi all! I’ve been obese now for about half my life, and my fasting glucose level from my last lab test is worrying (101). I’ve been listening to 2 Keto Dudes, and I’m interested in starting keto to avoid diabetes and lose weight, but of course I want to talk to my doctor first. I’m wondering if someone has a list of essential scientific papers and other tips on how to talk to him about it without him outright dismissing it. Thanks!

Thanks! I missed that paragraph.
When I started, I got a full lipid panel, NMR (particulate analysis) and HBA1C tests. My Dr wasn’t around when I started but another told me that my cholesterol was kind of high. He didn’t really know much about LCHF diets so I just started. I’m 5 months into it and have improved #s (see Before and after 3 months for details).
Another thing I wish I had done before I started was to record a few days (or weeks) of what I was eating via myfitnesspal.com. At this time I don’t really know how many carbs I was eating before but I believe it was a lot.
