Atkins Diabetes Expert Interviewed On dLifeTV

As more and more people are finding out about the low-carb solution to the diabetes epidemic that has spread across the United States and around the world, invariably they are turning to the one person who has not only been preaching this message but also practicing what she preaches in dealing with her patients. It's Dr. Mary C. Vernon.

Dr. Vernon co-authored Atkins Diabetes Revolution in 2004 and has been passionately working with diabetic sufferers in her Kansas medical practice imploring the low-carb principles with her desperate patients. She is on the frontlines of some truly remarkable cutting edge advances in diabetes treatment and is finally getting the recognition she deserves.

Her popularity especially exploded in December 2006 when Adam Campbell featured Dr. Vernon in Men's Health magazine. Since then, more and more people around the country are finding out the truth about livin' la vida low-carb as it relates to diabetes because of Dr. Vernon. Read my interview with her from last year to catch a glimpse of her heart for people dealing with diabetes.

In a strange coincidence, I will be featuring five studies as part of my "Fact-Filled February" series showing the connection between a low-carb diet and improvements in the weight and health of diabetics in both episodes of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore" podcast this week on Monday and Thursday. Dr. Vernon is specifically mentioned in Thursday's episode, so don't miss it!

But you can catch Dr. Vernon on CNBC's dLifeTV on Sunday, February 18, 2007 at 7:00PM EST. In an exclusive interview with them, she reveals that the current state of diabetes care in the United States has her greatly "saddened" because the low-carb approach is being widely ignored despite being shown to be extremely effective for treating diabetics.

”If you control the carbohydrates that go in your mouth...then you will control your blood sugar and your blood sugar hormones (insulin),” Dr. Vernon said in her interview, reiterating her belief that diabetes can be controlled naturally through the diet without the necessity of medication in many instances.

She added that the proof is in the massive improvements her patients have seen in their weight and health when they start livin' la vida low-carb.

"Giving them control over their diabetes by giving them the tools to eat in such a way that they require less medication” is an important advancement, Dr. Vernon contends in the interview.

Tune in Sunday night at 7:00PM EST to watch the interview with Dr. Mary C. Vernon in its entirety. For even more from Dr. Vernon, be sure to check out her "Ask Dr. Vernon" blog as she answers YOUR questions about low-carb, weight loss, diet, and health.

Great interview. I only wish it could have lasted longer. Even though dLife pretty much tows the low fat party line, it's nice to see that they are open to discussing low carb.

It's interesting that the first feature is about the state of diabetes care and prevention. They propose more education and suggest more government involvement. Education is good, but most diabetes education is about the low fat dogma that is making the problem worse. More government is just what we need. NOT :) Diabetes care and prevention could be much better if they would just listen to people like Dr. Vernon.

THANKS for your comments renegadediabetic! I think the move to low-carb is happening...albeit, ever so slowly.

Happy to throw in my 2 cents. I appreciate the heads up on the dLife show. I always tape it, but sometimes don't watch it for several days. When I heard Dr. Vernon would be on, I made an effort to watch it right away. As the evidence mounts for low carb, the steamroller should flatten the low fat only theory.
