That would require there to be evidence that it actually helps!
I don't see doctors doing that because of the potential for malpractice. I think that most doctors believe that you have to follow their plan, or deviate from it in the prescribed manner. At the same time, like Zoe, I pretty much rely on my doctor to write prescriptions. I don't actually get a ton of "answers" from the DOC but use it to look stuff up. When I got my pump, it was very useful to read how crafty veterans used theirs and it certainly continues to inform my experiments?
At the same time, if I say read and thank someone for the suggestion to say turn my pump up 200% when I'm taking prednisone (which I've done, it worked, I've tossed it out there in threads too...) and I hypo out and run into a day care bus full of toddlers and kill say 15 of them, it may come out [the thank you was typed at a redlight...] that a message board suggestion "caused" or "contributed" to the case. Say I have $500K in liability coverage, that's not really enough for the 15 dead toddlers so say they go after Tu, a NFP (I think?), probably not a ton of coverage there either. Hmmm, if they can prove my doc recommended I use Tu, like it's written in a medical report, suddenly there's the doc's malpractice insurance, maybe a clinic too, more like $5-10 million. It doesn't bring the kids back any more but I could see how that could play out.
Even if Michelle's research substantiates a benefit, and I think docs are aware of the DOC but maybe not the nature of the conversations, I think that docs will not Rx it. They will tolerte it but there's professional barriers to leaving the ranch like that I think.
