Hi Alan, this is xita, indeed a girl :)

Thanks for reposting this, I am glad you've started this blog and that my message spoke to you.

I feel very lucky that there is more information out there for us and that we can do research and find what works for us. After a while I too began to resent the advice of the ADA, but it's true the people there are just like any diabetic who is concerned enough to care. I am happy because you are right already people are responding and saying they'd never heard of Jennifer's advice.

I think sometimes people resist such an aggressive method (Jennifer's advice) because it really is scary at first.

There's so much that I've been through. I felt like I got the information when I needed it. At first getting down from the 200s was so difficult. I would cry. When I first read Jennifer's Advice I wasn't ready to try. I was terrified to test at 1 hour. But I couldn't get it out of my head. I could be doing damage to my body. It's not enough. So eventually when what I was doing wasn't so overwhelming, I started really testing... and at first that seemed so incredibly overwhelming. I hadn't seen a 180 in so long yet there it was... 1 hour after breakfast. More tears... but you know.. I am not so scared anymore. Humans can get used to anything. And I am also grateful that there are so many low carb options for us out there.

Anyway, we have to continue to be advocates because it works for some people. I am not against medication ... I am on it now. I just don't want to have more if I can avoid it. I don't feel like it interferes with my way of life. I think the effects of high BS would eventually affect my quality of life more than low carbing ever would.

Of course, I am fairly new at this and worry the honeymoon will wear off. It has been a while though since I've felt nostalgia for donuts.
