13 years ago, I happened to be dating a woman who worked at a diabetes call center. One of the products the company marketed was the Medtronic pump. The company KNEW at the time that the pumps were defective & all employees were instructed (under threat of termination) NOT to mention the fact that they knew the pumps were defective.
The phones were monitored & after violating company policy by mentioning the problems with the pumps to one caller, my friend was forced to quit or be terminated.View Thread
Politicians should serve two terms.
One in office and one in prison
I found these yesterday & tried one today with lunch. I think they taste much better than those low carb tortillas while being almost as low in carbs. 16 Carbs, 5 gms fiber, 8 gms protein. They're made by "French Meadow Bakery." (www.frenchmeadow.com )View Thread
"Seems the more I try and stock semi-better for us foods, the more junk she brings home, BTW I do the regular grocery shopping.
I have been having a time with stocking the frig/freezer. MY wIFe has been bringing home JUNK, big bags of french toast frozen, waffles and pancakes galore, hardly room for me to store what I like or should eat. Oh muffins galore, fresh cider, had some for breakfast today, donuts you name it."
I had a similar experience although not quite as high sugar; mine was 491. I was started on 2 diabetes medications & was handed an 1800 calorie/day diet (with drug ads on each page). I did some research & found that just because a doctor says you need drugs, doesn't mean it's true. I've been following an eating & lifestyle program I found on the web (www.drfuhrman.com ) & haven't used any medication since 1-09 & have lost the extra 70 lbs I was carrying. My high blood pressure & high lipids also became normal in 3 months & my A1c has been at 6.0 ever since.
In my opinion, too many doctors assume their patients don't have the self discipline to make changes & besides, writing prescriptions makes for a much shorter & simpler visit.View Thread
