For many years, healthcare providers have told diabetics that diabetes is a progressive disease and that there is nothing you can do to keep your diabetes from getting worse and eventually suffering one or more diabetes complications, including:
- peripheral neuropathy ==> foot ulcers ==> amputations
- blurry vision ==> retinal damage ==> blindness
- kidney disease ==> dialysis
- high blood pressure ==> heart attack and/or stroke
The sad thing is that keeping your blood glucose low with medications and/or insulin does not prevent these complications!
The happy thing is that keeping your blood glucose and insulin at normal levels with a low-carb way of eating will help prevent diabetes complications!
