Hello from Allathea
« on: May 10, 2016, 04:14:22 AM »
Good to be on board.  Diagnosed in 2003.  It took awhile to cycle through the standard Diabetes Educator routines and find my way to LCHF.  But here I am.  Looking forward to participating.

Welcome aboard Allthea,

We're glad that you decided to join up. Since we are only about 2 months old as a site / forum, we are keen to know, how you learnt about us. And, it would be really nice to know a little more about you, your background, your D management (numbers etc). That helps people understand you better.

So happy to meet you, Allathea!

Your account sounds a lot like the rest of us have experienced . . . having to stumble around in the dark by trial and error until we finally bump our shins on LCHF. I can credit my doc with telling me to lower carbs, but he didn't include the high fat part, and he didn't set the carbs level nearly low enough. He has since seen the light after I insisted on LCHF and eating to my meter!  ;D

Once we get there, it sure works, and it fixes a lot of things besides just high blood sugar!

So since we call this a pub, here's to getting acquainted & forging a long happy friendship. ~chr~   Thank you for joining us.

Allathea, welcome aboard!  You have just surrounded yourself with a group of people who have walked many of the same roads you are now traveling.  I hope we can share the adventures and help you learn to take control of your diabetes...

Hi Allathea and welcome :)  I'm glad you found us!  Sometimes it's hard for me not being able to fully discuss my way of eating with my own doctor, so I am very appreciative of this online forum, where I can openly discuss this approach to controlling diabetes.  Hope to see you post more on the boards.

Welcome to a really top notch group of diabetics.  Most of us stumbled around in the dark and found our way here and have learned a lot of 'secrets' and would love to help you, so post away and ask questions...the only 'dumb' one is the one not asked!
