A Doctor with diabetes relates his health recovery with low carb nutrition.

Here is a great short video in which a doctor in South Africa describes the many improvements in his health with adopting a low-carb, ketogenic diet.

At 8:40 minutes, this video is also a good choice for helping you communicate with friends, family and your health care team about low carbohydrate nutrition.friends, family and your health care team about low carbohydrate nutrition.

A comment I would make is that this does not at all have to be a high protein diet. In fact, some people do not get the full benefits of low carbohydrate nutrition if they embrace a high protein intake. A moderate protein consumption is usually best.

Also, note that he needed to pay close attention to his medications as he started the change in eating pattern. It would have been very dangerous if he had not reduced the diabetes medication and blood pressure medication as needed as his food intake changed.

Finally, I definitely do not recommend the Dukan diet, which he mentions.
