Default Doctors and Testing

Again and again people here query why doctors only recommend testing
before meals and fasting, when the general consensus of most posters
here is for post-prandial testing.
I think it comes down to strategy versus tactics. The doctors can't
really control what most patients do on a day-to-day basis, so they
use tests which show the long-term trends of our disease.
Additionally, the vast majority of their patients are not as
pro-active about treating their affliction as the posters here.
We, however, have decided to fight the beast directly and need
real-time knowledge of the effects on our body of different foods and
The problem is to convince the doctors; not that they are wrong but
that you are right and need their support.

Cheers Alan, T2, Oz
