I am not sure if that is true. It may just be the ultra low-carb topic that gets people's fur up. There are probably people here who might be interested in general discussions about nutrition. I don't know. It is just tough with this disease because a lot of it revolves around food, and we each have our own way of dealing with it. For those of us with female children, especially teenage females, it is a very fine line we need to walk when dealing with food, weight, etc. Eating disorders are a very real consequence of not properly managing Type 1 diabetes and is something that is always in the back of my mind.
