In Reply to: Low Carb diet and potential Diabetes posted by Stefan Pavlenko on December 05, 1999 at 03:27:47:

: I have rescently begun a low carb diet and have been successful in slowly losing weight.
: But the best result has been that I feel much better after meals. I no longer feel a decrease in
: energy levels immediately after a full meal. I have suggested to my son to begin a low carb diet but
: he is concerned because his maternal grandfather had severe diabetes. My son fears that if
: after a stretch on the low carb diet, he then quits; it will jettison his metabolism to an extreme level.
: He believes that he would then force an insulin imbalance that could activate a dormant tendency
: toward diabetes inherited from his grandfather. Is his reasoning physiologically correct or is he needlessly
: cautious? Rev. Stefan Pavlenko

Anything I say should not be a substitute for advice from the doctor. The most important thing your son can do is eat a well balenced, nutritious diet and get regular exercise. He should go to great lengths to not be overweight to avoid adult-onset diabetes mellitus.
