When I became enlightened to the LCHF sphere of influence and began researching metabolic health to incorporate it into my life and practice, I found Adele Hite. Rather, she found me. Tweeting that there were opportunities to help within the space and soliciting volunteers to contribute, I answered her call to action. I got to know her a little via Zoom and she was always able to keep these conversations and sessions focused and on task. I was stunned to hear of her passing, much too soon. She will be missed personally and professionally. My heart goes out to her family and friends. RIP Adele. Doug, that was a succinct and heartfelt tribute. The SMHP will go on with her in remembrance.

This is a great feature, Doug. Kudos!

Preaching to the choir here. Most don't pay attention unless fasting glucose or A1c is a little off base. Likely most have not heard of HOMA-IR. Test is easily ordered and available. Unless screening labs do not show full blown DM there would be no urgency on the most part for them to test. We know this, but when the typical PCP has limited time and is pressured to move patients through, it probably won't be caught. That's why we're hear to change that!

I use shared decision making a lot and in my role as a medical director I encourage all our clinicians to use it as well. I also like therapeutic carbohydrate restriction as well as time restricted eating in place of fasting for less than 24 hours.

Good day all and I am gratified to see this organization up and running. I just signed up as a founding member and proud to say so! I am a Emergency Physician by trade for over 20 years and have seen first hand the devastation caused by diabetes mellitus, hypertension and other chronic conditions directly attributable to poor metabolic health. I have struggled with weight control myself for all of my adult life until I made it my mission to disprove this crazy guy on the Adam Carolla Show podcast, Vinnie Tortorich. Well, I failed miserably by losing over 60# pounds and keeping it off with improvements in almost every health parameter. Now, there is no struggle. I have been active on the Clinician and Education Committees after being hooked by Adele and Cecile and look forward to future collaborations. Website ourlowcarb.com and on Twitter with that handle and @punkflamingo.
