Isn’t this all too common!?
I’m T2D and have been Keto for almost 1 year now, OK 11 months but I’m really excited for my First Keto-versary! I’m giving up my Endocrinologist who has been treating my T2D since it was discovered almost 10years ago,… Why? During my last visit, my HbA1C was great, blood pressure, energy etc, all great. So he was ready to write me up for ‘more of the same’ meds, until I broke it to him that I didn’t need them anymore, no more mealtime meds, no more blood pressure meds, no thank you, I’m living the Keto lifestyle! He immediately reacted negatively to my choice, indicated “That diet is not good”. “Why?”, I asked. Here was his reply, 3 things: 1. Very difficult and inconvenient! 2. It will raise cholesterol (At which point, I immediately sent him studies on efficacy for lowering small dense LDL!). He chuckled and said, “You’ve really done your homework!”, and finally 3. “That diet is too high in protein!”.
With that I kindly wound up the meeting, and the relationship.
Now searching for a good Nutritionist/Doctor in Hong Kong to support my Keto lifestyle. More to follow!
Staying the course!
