Comment from Dr. Feinman of NMS:

Kyle Cramer: the benefit you get is that your voice may be heard. When NMS talks to a congressman, if we can say we have even 200 members who are committed to at least joining at $ 25 (this is still not a trivial amount of money for most of us), then we have much more likelihood of being listened to. Same goes for having a voice with the media. Most of all, the benefit is that we will try to post information, answer questions and do the things you think will bring out real scientific information. It is important to note that not all the authors of our articles are low carb advocates. They really want what the title says: a serious appraisal of the science.

Comment from Dr. Feinman of NMS:

Patty: NMS is approaching congress with the problem although it is appropriate for you yourself to discuss this with your elected officials. It is reasonable to ask for congressional hearings or NIH conferences in which the minority opinion is heard. People who understand the potential of carbohydrate restriction (the authors of the paper, for example) should be represented on the panels who make recommendations. You can write to the ADA as well.

However, you should be constructive and collegial. I would not assume that any particular person is opposed to your point of view. There are traditional, conservative people who I think have undue influence on policy but these are big organizations and most physicians want to help their patient and may not be in concert with these committees. Also, many practitioners simply don't have the relevant information. We want them to accept a minority voice and we don’t really want to fight with them.

Thank you to all who wrote it and worked on it. Those of us with diabetes, who eat low-carb, are grateful to you all.

Is nutrition & metabolism planning to go before congress and make a stink?
