OK, I’m a layman.
Some would say just because I admit that fact I must be an ignoramus. On the contrary, being a lay-person doesn’t mean I’m stupid or can’t investigate alternative sources of information. In fact, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s not only the lay-folk who’ve been misled. I mean, why has obesity and T2D grown to epidemic proportion? Surely the un-lay-folk should have the answers for that?
However, it seems to me, the pleb layman, that we, the great unwashed, have been subjected to skulduggery and indoctrination to the highest degree! (Please pardon the commas!)
Doctors are supposed to be educating us. Really? The health system is supposed to be on our side. Really? I’ve been fed platitudes and misinformation for almost 10 years. Yes, the health system prescribed tablets for blood sugar control and stern advice about my woeful lifestyle. But, for good measure, they threw in cholesterol lowering tablets… and blood pressure stuff as well, just because I became “at risk”.
I asked many questions yet not one doctor could or would explain the relationship between carbohydrates, insulin resistance and blood sugar. Not one ventured to risk suggesting that I could possibly reverse T2D and stay healthy without the need for tablets! Now, it seems to me, the professionals are too caught up in the dirty spiral of deceit the system is weaving around them. They’re so confused by their own pompous bull while their mass of patients is being led down the destructive path of self harm!
Imagine having to suggest to a long-term T2D patient that their foot has to be removed… when in fact you should have given them SIMPLE advice years earlier which would’ve prevented any such drastic, harmful action!
I’ve included another video. If only a doctor would’ve bothered to explain the issues in this manner to me ten years ago. Maybe I’m now wondering who should be labelled ignoramus, we the lay in need of professional help or the very folk who we trust with our lives?
I’m repeating my request… please share the information… together we can make a difference!
I want to be part of the groundswell… to eat better, to be well!!
