Listen To What My Patients Say
Blood tests showed signs of high sugar. Medical tests confirmed this and moreover detected our child as a T1D. Doctors gave their best to administer dosages and ensure that we understood the Dos and Don’ts. Here comes the game changer — The right Nutritionist. I am really thankful to Dr Shilpa Joshi for accepting our request to Administer our child’s journey from the hba1c of 14.4 to 7.1. Initially we were confused why we were not given any meal plans, but with time we really understood her method — 1) It’s a deficiency 2) Cook and make your child eat anything and everything (healthy) 3) Carb counting 4) Transparency is the key 5) Make your child eat out 6) leading a normal life Importantly we realised that we ourselves were eating an imperfect diet and there was an urgent need of a nutritionist like Dr. Shilpa Joshi.
