Clinical Guidelines - Draft

Adele Hite's efforts to get this clinical guidelines document to the point where it is almost ready to publish is nothing short of miraculous.  We have formed a board of advisers made up of experienced clinical practitioners and experts in the field to help us get this work done.  Currently this board consists of Prof. Tim Noakes, Dr. Gary Fettke, Dr. Stephen Phinney, Dr. Georgia Ede, Dr. Bret Scher, Dr. Robert Cywes, Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Will Yancy, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Laura Saslow, Dr. David Cavin and Dr. Brian Lenzkes.
This first draft is for general application.  We will keep building on this and add individual sections for condition-specific guidelines.

Give us your ideas and feedback.  Make sure you read through the other comments to make sure you are not duplicating anything and add your new comment at the end.

If patients are on insulin or sulfonylureas when beginning a low-carbohydrate diet, it is likely
that does will need to be reduced immediately to prevent hypoglycemia.

Change does to dose.

At our metabolic center we always check insulin at baseline, and then repeat it in 3 months, then 6 months. It can give helpful information in terms of presence of insulin resistance, can help to educate and motivate the patient about their current level of health and what may be contributing to weight gain, and it can be followed over time and seeing it decrease can be very rewarding for the patient and provides information about the effect of the dietary and lifestyle changes.
