"I admire your efforts. Good luck with it. The lack of credible knowledge in the general population is terrifying to me because people suffer needlessly every day."

"Wow, congrats to you and your son. Amazing that we have been conditioned to believe that the Dr knows best only to find that that ain't necessarily so. Good luck to your son and his new Dr."

"Interesting visit w Dr.. He wants to drop diabetes dx. I had to tell HIM that I am managing my D not curing it. Gave him copy of Dr Bernstein's Diabetes Diet Book. Said he would read it. Could not disagree with my results."

"Watch your CARB intake. Low Carb (30/grams/day) works in many cases as well as meds w/o the side effects. Dr Bernstein's approach is working for me."
