My friend has a client who is diabetic and on the Atkins diet. He has successfully lost the weight he wanted and is now off of insulin shots because of the low carb diet. He doesn't want to lose anymore weight and wants to get off the diet, but his sugar will go up if he starts eating carbs again, and therefore he will have to use the shots again. What advice do you have?
If your friend was able to lose weight and get off insulin injections, it is not a certainty he will need them again by just simply returning to a normal diet as long as he keeps the weight off. Exercise and a balanced diet will be key. Check out the "related articles" at right for more on this.
