Talked to doctor, who does NOT want me to go on the keto diet, however, does want me to eliminate refined carbs. So thank you, everyone, who suggested I check with the doctor. I know better than not to; however so desperate to feel better, and all the doctor wants to do is add medications!! I may need a different doctor, however, where I live, it is very difficult to find one. emoticon

    Good luck on your journey. It is a long road to get back to health, I just learn what doesn't work, and move on to find a way that does work best for me. We are all different, and that's okay. I do agree, processed foods are a nightmare on blood sugar levels. Just keep it real, real food that is. emoticon This is me, cheering you on to health!

    It's easy for Dr's to prescribe meds. I think they realize most people do not want to change their good/bad habits and what DR really wants to jump all over someone about their issues? Why tell you you are obese, you are headed for an early death, etc. They do not want to be the bearer of 'bad' news so prescribe a med that will help instead. In fact most people want the easy way out too. Take this med and I can continue to eat all the cake and ice cream I want (or whatever). Regarding Keto there are definite pros and cons to that plan. Ultimately it is your life and you need to make the decision and be part of the solution and not leave it up to others to fix.

    Not easy to find a good doctor I think wherever you are. Hopefully reducing the refined carbs will be a big help and once that is done hope you feel better. health is not an easy journey but so important to feel and do better.

    So start by adding new meds... carefully... one at a time while you look for new doctor. Be honest with your current doctor that you are not really interested in adding new meds and only want to add slowly and if absolutely if necessary. Let him know that you are attempting to lose weight and get fit and reduce meds so to add more meds is counter productive to goal plan. You are in charge and doctor can only add new meds with your permission.
