The Wooo is my sort of nutter !

Some time ago, the DCUK carbs and meds pusher known as Phoenix, was over at the awful Carbsane blog giving it large. Phoenix has dedicated her life in the promotion of pushing carbs to diabetics, and of course, the accompanying high medication regime. A healthcare professional known as the Wooo put her straight in no uncertain terms. BTW Phoenix is known as OnePointFive elsewhere and has a blog under the same name. The Wooo is a one off, some may say crazy, but she is very bright and certainly my sort of nutter.


"As your moniker states, you are a 1.5 diabetic. YOU are nothing like a type 2 diabetic and cannot relate to their concerns. You are much more in common with a type 1 metabolically healthy subject. Just as you don't seem to understand why type 2s need to restrict carbs and can't just inject insulin like you or a type 1 or a MODY diabetic, you are also not likely to succumb to the complications because exogenous insulin will manage your condition entirely, assuming you are compliant with blood sugar checks and insulin coverate and monitoring/observing how your blood glucose responds to variables.

This is not the case for a type 2 diabetic who is intrinsically DISEASED in the liver, and in the very core of their cells. Whereas your c-peptide is barely detectable, theirs will be extremely HIGH. They are rarely insulin deficient, and often hyperinsulinemic in the early phases. The problem with type 2 diabetes is that the cells are like that of a corpse - they are half dead - they simply fail to generate energy normally. No matter what this person does, they will succumb to illnesses UNLESS THEY STOP TRYING TO USE GLUCOSE FOR ENERGY. THe best therapy for the type 2 is getting off glucose ASAP, using non-insulin dependent sources of nutrition like fats, and maximizing glucose tolerance as much as possible via micronutrients, weight training/moderate exercise, good sleep patterns and so on.

Here's a little chart to illustrate the differences in insulin secretion and resistance between 1, 1.5, and 2. As you can see, 1.5 is pretty much type 1 that occurs in old age, with some insulin resistance but not significant.

The fact you laugh at type 2 diabetics on low carb diets, would be like someone with situational laughing at a manic depressive for taking lithium. Situational depression may resolve without life long medication, but bipolar disorder will NOT. Sure, both of these people have a condition considered by doctors to be described as "depression" but the etiology and treatment of the condition is radically different. The various categories of diabetes are just like this. You have no idea what type 2 diabetics experience and what treatment they benefit from, because the news flash is for you: it isn't the same as type 1, type 1.5, or mody diabetes"

Better to stick with the medical and scientific consensus as a whole rather than follow the views of one nurse regarded as a nutter.

+1 Go Wooo!! I agree there is no-one out there like here, a gutsy and complete one-off and thank goodness we have someone like her who calls out all the BS out there. Never one to hold back and fight for her beliefs and with complete honesty all the way. If she's a nutter then we need more of them.

Isn' it so awesome that the helpless overweight whining pig , Heavylyn, has found a new target to go after....the brilliant author of The Big Fat Surprise.

That pathetic excuse of a morbidly obese creature get's so offended when others(especially attractive women)don't buy into her bullshit and actually go with science, because they, unlike here, are not complete failures in being healthy and healthy looking.

But the 'medical and scientific consensus' is 99% wrong on the correct diet and treatment of type two diabetes. The Wooo has forgotten more re diet than the so called experts will ever know !

Carbsane the ultimate sore loser, and Patron Saint of the bitter and twisted. Only in a world this mad does she survive. Only mugs follow her or take her seriously.
