My daughter was unofficially heading there 2 years ago at age 10. Her urine tests were horrible and my homeopath/BTD doctor wanted me to take her to the doctor ASAP. I asked if I could get real serious about her diet for a week or two and she said that it was totally up to us. We did it and so far 2 years later, she is doing ok. At the time, she was too young to care. I think now she would find it a bit more troublesome to even think of taking time out of her busy day to test her blood or give herself a shot (I hope anyways).
So hat's off to Dr. D. and the BTD! BTW, her urine tests as far as the glucose were normal within ONE WEEK!!! So show this to your mom, Sasha!
Glad you had great success Laurjen!
