For Dr Patel (or anyone),
Friend is type II, has been for approx 10 years. Is currently on insulin for an ear issue she's had for the past year (no idea, just passing along what I've been told)? Her doc has advised against a keto diet and recommended "Potatoes not Prozac". Trying to convince her to give Carb Nite (or at least a keto diet) a try, could use some ideas/ammunition.
Also: her docs have given her the "bad genetics" label, which is infuriating to me.
