Is a low carb (medium protein and high fat, of course) diet safe while on blood sugar lowering pharm. meds? (Eventually goal is to get off these meds, when weight is lowered.)

    Hi Emily

    The below is a quote from Dr. Ron's website. I personally was able to get off 2 meds and 2 shots daily for my diabetes – that was almost 3 years ago now.

    Wishing you the best …


    Quote From Dr. Rosedale's website


    If you are on medications for diabetes or blood pressure and decide to do this program, please monitor your levels very carefully. Through this eating plan, your need for all medications will diminish and often disappear entirely, but this is especially true and will happen very rapidly in cases of blood sugar and blood pressure.

    Thus, it is imperative that you either see your healthcare provider for proper medication management or reduce medications yourself if you have been previously instructed about how to do this.

    As we improve hormone communication and sensitivity, this diet will naturally normalize your blood sugar, blood pressure, and many other symptoms for which were previously treated artificially though external chemicals.

    If you continue to stay the course with your previous medication regimen, your levels may drop too low and present a health risk.

    • Please make sure you stay on top of this. See your doctor if necessary.

    Thank you so much. I'm all over his site and Shelly's. I just discovered it yesterday while reading a Mercola post.
