Re: A patient request for some “deprescribing”
I absolutely agree with the recommendation given for carbs being a bad idea. I have been type 1 for over 22 years. A couple years back I had many beginning complications. High cholesterol, numb areas in my feet, hormone imbalances, and an irregular heart rhythm to name a few. I decided to adopt Dr. Bernstein's protocol. I now eat 30g of leafy green carbs a day, or less. I have an a1c of 4.9. I've regained the feeling in my feet...my PCOS has resolved, and I finally have hope for the future. I just wish someone on my medical team had come to me with carb restriction as an option, long ago.
