Re: [IP] Dr. Bernstein's method



Hi.  I've read Dr. Bernstein's book and have also been online with a former
patient of his.  He is into a very low carb diet, which of course yields
good control, but you have to look at the negatives.  My son is only 5 and I
don't believe  a low carb diet would be healthy for him.  The patient of his
that I mentioned has her son who is a teenager on a low carb diet, but even
she couldn't go as low as he wanted her to.  He became type I as an adult (I
hope I'm remembering that right!) and  then became a doctor because of the
complications he was having.   He did reverse many of his problems, but his
diet just doesn't sound very healthy to me.  It did prove that good control
does work, so I will check my son's blood sugars after he eats at 1-5 hours
(NOT all on the same day!)  and make sure that his  bs doesn't rise too
much.  If a certain food consistently does raise his bs into the 200s, then
we try to avoid that food.
Hope that helps.
