She has had Type 1 diabetes since she was 14. Her C-Peptide test reveals (we think) that the the pancreas isn't making insulin. But she has embraced the Rosedale program with tremendous enthusiasm. She's only been doing it for about a week. And she's already halved the amount of insulin she needs in a day. She adores the program. She feels more stable, solid in her body, in her life. She's never hungry. Her blood sugars are stable for the first time since I've known her - she's been an odd case in that the tiniest, minute shifts in diet can alter her blood sugar wildly. Her blood sugars had been all over the map. Not any more! Needless to say, we're all thrilled.

Bless you, Dr Ron!

    My 74 year old diabetic friend just sent me this email of bloodwork just
    taken - she's been Rosedale for only a month. You asked me about her.
    Here is the wonderful info! We don't mind if she gets Dr Rosedale's name
    right do we? (Smile!)

    Hello My Friend:

    Am finding it a little difficult not to be overjoyed with lab results
    and other results determined by Angela.

    Weight: 141 1/2 lbs (lost 3 lbs since last visit)

    BP: 110/60 (lowest I ever remember)

    A1C: 6.8 (excellent, lowest ever)

    B12: 1296 (very high but nothing to worry about)

    Glucose: 132 (Rosendale very high)

    Thyroid, TS3: 1.83 (Rosendale healthy range for non-diabetics)

    Triglycerides: 59 (Rosendale 100 and below optimal)

    Blood Urea Nitrogen: 21 (Rosendale acceptable)

    Alkaline Phosphatase SGPT: 18 (Rosendale normal), SGOT: 23 (Rosendale

    Cholesterol: 230 (Rosendale anything above 300 need to worry. Good
    Cholesterol HDL: 92 (Angela says this is excellent and better than
    average non-diabetic) Bad Cholesterol LDL: 126 (High according to medics
    but nothing to worry about according to Rosendale)

    Angela wanted to know all that I am doing to have these excellent
    results and looking so good. So I told her about the Rosendale Diet. She
    wrote down everything I told her and what exactly I am doing with
    proteins, carbs and fats. I also shared with her how I am adjusting when
    BSs get into the 200s. She is intrigued because she knows of no other
    patient who has such excellent results after having diabetes for 61
    years. (Let me not get too cocky!) And as she said, you know your body
    so very well and better than any of us, even went so far as to say I
    could be her advisor.

    Angela shared with me how every minute thing about the patient has to be
    recorded on the computer which takes an inordinate amount of time. Often
    she is in the office late into the evening getting everything
    computerized. What is hard for her she said is that she can't spend
    quality time with each patient realizing that it is such an important
    aspect of helping patients. She's a natural at bringing out things from
    people, not necessarily about their diabetic condition, but many other
    things in the patients' lives which are impacting their condition. She
    said the reason she went into nursing was anticipating having such
    one-on-one times with patients where she feels her strength lies. She is
    sad that such times with patients are becoming less and less. I
    encouraged her as much as possible to use this gift she has and thanked
    her and all the staff at the clinic for how they have helped me.

    I have been eating on average 2 eggs a day and feel this may have put up
    my bad cholesterol so will cut back on them

    Well, this is my happy story for today. And God Bless you for all you
    bring to my earth and to the larger earth. Much love,
