Tune in Sunday nights at 7PM EST for the diabetes-focused dLife

If you are one of the 73 million Americans who are either diabetic or pre-diabetic, then you will want to know about the first television talk show to help people who suffer from Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. It's called dLife!

Featuring inspiring stories of triumph, timely sources of information, and educational resources from some of the most qualified field of experts on the subject of diabetes today, dLife is devoted to arming diabetics with exactly what they need to better understand their disease and how to deal with it in a variety of ways.

This weekly broadcast airs on the cable news channel CNBC on Sunday evenings at 7PM EST and is jam-packed with the very latest news and information about diabetes research and treatments that will keep diabetics abreast of how to best control their condition. The dLife show also includes many delicious recipes (most of which are perfect for people who are livin' la vida low-carb!) and tales of real people living with diabetes in today's world.

What an amazing opportunity for diabetics to get connected with everything they need to make the best of their disease! I highly encourage you to watch some past episodes online, read some of the expert answers to some common questions regarding diabetes, and join the free forum to interact with other diabetics who are dealing with the same issues that you are.

Dr. Howard Wolpert and Dr. Richard Bernstein face-off on dLife

For diabetics interested in the low-carb treatment option for dealing with diabetes, something that is becoming more and more commonplace these days because of the latest studies, you won't want to miss this recent debate on dLife between Dr. Howard Wolpert from the Joslin Clinic in Boston and Dr. Richard Bernstein, author of "Diabetes Solution" and a world-renowned diabetes expert focusing on natural low-carbohydrate dietary solutions to diabetes.

Be sure to read Regina Wilshire's take on this debate between Dr. Wolpert and Dr. Bernstein in two recent blog posts she wrote at her fantastic low-carb blog "Weight Of The Evidence" found here and here.

One of the highlights of the debate was when Dr. Bernstein was asked by dLife host Howard Steinberg about a point made by Dr. Wolpert regarding diabetes patients on a dietary treatment plan feeling discouraged and defeated. Dr. Bernstein hit the ball out of the ballpark with this poignant response.

"Very rarely have we lost patients. Getting a person to switch to a low-carbohydrate diet, which is essential, there's no way to control blood sugars on a high-carbohydrate diet. You have to do it fast, all at once, otherwise it takes forever. Those where you change them immediately they lose the cravings and you forge ahead and they see the results. When patients see the payoff, they stick with it."

KABOOM! That was an AWESOME answer from Dr. Bernstein. But, not surprisingly, Dr. Wolpert said it takes an especially motivated patient to follow such advice which is ridiculous. Sure, it's not easy, but neither is trying to lose weight. The bottom line is IT CAN BE DONE and livin' la vida low-carb can get you there.
