What people are saying about this resource:

"I hope the short videos on low-carb diets will reinforce the discussions that I have with my patients in the office and empower the patients to initiate change.  I envision this as an introduction to ongoing learning about managing their diabetes and accessing the resources on the MCT2D website."
