Anyone know what the ratio for a child is on Dr. Bernstein's program? How many carbs, proteins, etc. and how much each carb raises a child's blood sugar? ( Adults is 1 carb= 5)

Here's a post from Chris Masterjohn with a different spin on hyperinsulinemia causes: Link->. I'm not calling it gospel but it's some good food for thought.

There was a few things I didnt not know though, like keto nutritionists. I didnt even know they existed.
Comment by onesaint on November 23, 2010 at 11:32am
Agreed bsc. I thought some of the comments were a little angry towards the keto diet if you will. Also, it was looked at as a short term solution as opposed to our methods of use. The portrayal was of an almost unmanageably tight diet regiment even thought they mentioned some 200 recipes that had been collected. I think the need to talk to Gerri about some quick easy recipes. lol

Interesting article, I'd known about the keto diet treatment for epilepsy. many doctors hate it. Unfortunately, the article contains lots of myths and it makes me question some parts of it. Fat does not cause kidney stones. You don't miss nutrients from not eating carby food, although you may need care with a few like vitamin C. Fat is not constipating. A low carb diet is high in calcium/magnesium. And a ketogenic diet does not cause ketoacidosis. Other than that it was an interesting read. .

If it was only one high reading in your doc's office, I wouldn't sweat it. Most of the time they don't take BP right. You shouldn't be talking during it or minutes before. Feet flat on the floor, arm in correct position & cuff placed at a certain place relative to your chest. With a high reading, they're supposed to wait 5 minutes, take two more & average it.My mom has intermittent high BP & checks her BP 3-4 times a day. The readings 5-10 minutes apart can vary hugely. Worse than glucose meters. My mother was told to take magnesium caps for mild high BG. High BP, she takes a pill. Unlike most people, she doesn't take it daily.

Awesome A1c! Way to go!

Man, Alton's lost weight. Only person who could do a segment on how to blend a smoothie. Throw everything & turn it on. I'm too short to see a vortex in a blender, unless it's on the floor.
