"The risk with allowing some company reps in promoting their companies products is that if you let one group in, it becomes hard to exclude the rest. That includes the sellers of sleazy "cures" and supplements. I don't believe you can…"

Hi Jenny,
I just wanted to say hi and thank you for your wonderful website! It has some great resources and has been very helpful to me : ) I am still quite newly diagnosed (around 6 months now), and the information you have provided has been so helpful in getting to grips with this new way of life. All the best, Emma Jayne : )

Hi Jenny! Your book is the bible as far as I'm concerned! Thanks for being my friend! I'm looking for the best computer program available to track carb intake, exercise and blood glucose levels. I like CalorieKing.com for calories and carbs and then I like the accu check mini for tracking my glucose levels. Do you know of any programs that puts them together in one program? Thanks, Bob

hi jenny, i read your comment for khurt dated aug. 4, 2009. Honestly, when i was diagnosed for a type 2 diabetes last june, 2009 i am in my normal weight, 127 lbs to be exact but my fasting blood sugar reached to 390 that time and for two weeks time i lost 26 lbs. I thought of dying that time. the only think i can recall prior my diagnosed was that i got fever for two weeks then i used to drink cola it becomes actually my water substitutes.... whew! then two weeks after that's my result.

Another TuDiabetes member pointed me to this article. I am not informed enough to critique it but something seems wrong about it.

Hi Jenny - Haven't talked to you in ages. Just thought I'd drop in and say hello. Insulin pump is going really great (9 weeks) and we've ironed out most of the problems, except for the strange days when nothing seems to help. Even during the ironing out and the off-days, my A1c was 7% (test last week) - down from 9% and down from 11% last year. Maybe next time in the 6s? Hope so! Hope you're doing well!

Hi Jenny - I sent you an email, but not clear that it went through - so here it is as a comment:

Just wanted to let you know that in communication with Jimmy Moore (Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show), he mentioned that he had tried to contact you because he wants to interview you on his show, but received no response.
I don't know where he tried to contact you, but I let him know you might be a bit busy on the new book! (Congratulations, by the way).
If you are interested and have a chance, you might contact him to make arrangements. He's done some outstanding podcasts this year, including Bernstein, Dr. Davis, Taubes, Carlson, etc. Anyway, I told him I would mention it to you. His email is: livinlowcarbman@charter.net

Thanks for your advice! I value your experience and studies tremendously. I will continue to believe my meter and wait for the next A1c, the doc also recommended a furctosomine test to check more current BG values. I am glad to hear how well you are doing with this condition. It is so encouraging to see so many on this site doing well.

Maybe I should try to go to a known diabetes center for a second opinion. Maybe they would put me on insulin instead of waiting to get worse and go on Januvia. Currently I am not on any meds...just diet and exercise, with normal BMI etc... Always been active and somewhat healthy dieter. (occasional sweet binges before diagnosis).

Thanks Jenny!! Your awesome.

Hi Jenny! I am baffled and wondered if you had input! I have T 1.5 we think, and I've read your awesome book, and Dr. Bernstein's two books. I believe in these philosophies and they have been working on my daily glucose #'s. I have a few more carbs maybe 20 at meals and 15 at snacks I am also nursing a baby. QUESTION. Three months ago I had 5.9 HbA1c and now it is 6.1!!! My numbers have been significantly better with most of the time under 100 and fastings 85-99 ??? I have dawn phenomenon and every 4 or 5 days it goes up 2 hr PP breakfast to 130's and once to 170. This is after eating 3/4 cup eggbeaters and a pinch of cheese, decaf coffee 2 splenda packets every single day no diet change???? I work out 5-7 days a week 30-60 min. moderate. Do you have any thoughts or advice??? I am baffled and Endo. said maybe Janivia if I get to 6.3. ??? I am really really diligent so this really knocked the wind out of my sails.

Thank you for Blood Sugar 101. I am so grateful to have my eyes opened now (early in my diabetic journey). I thought I was making great choices with steady results until I saw the logic in your information.

BEWARE: Acai Berry Scamsters Latest Marketing Tricks

Posted on January 14, 2009 at 7:05am 2 Comments

I got an illuminating email today from someone posing as a reader of my blog offering me, for free, an article about the benefits of acai berry and asking that I put it on my blog within the next week. The article which was nothing but a sales pitch for this questionable miracle cure product was included in the post and is now in my email spam bucket.



These are the same people who have put a lot of fake blogs all over the web where people recount their miraculous weight loss with… Continue
