In the fall of 2018 I was diagnosed by my Primary Care Provider with Type 2 Diabetes. I was educated enough to know that there was something I could do about it, and set out to change the path I was on by adopting a low carbohydrate/Ketogenic Diet to control my blood sugar. Fortunately, it worked right away- but soon after I discovered that I had some red flags on my cholesterol test results. There is a history of CVD in my family and I was disappointed that I might have to yet again make diet changes but was willing to do what was best for my whole health. After an appointment with a local Cardiologist I felt somewhat confused about how to move forward. I wanted more information and not just a prescription.
I contacted Dr. Scher for a consult because I wanted to confer with someone who not only understood my condition, but who could also give me the latest and soundest advice on how I might treat it and move forward in the best way for me as an individual- not as a statistic. I needed someone who came from a low carb perspective as well as a medical background. My interaction with him was positive, informative and went a long way to making me feel like I could make informed choices without the black and white thinking of well-meaning physicians. He sees the WHOLE person and not just one aspect of their health. Wellness is a journey- and having Dr. Scher along the way is a great way to make the trip!
