If you have assisted your dear Mom to lose weight and thus reduced her need for using medications including insulin then you must be on the right track. If in doubt, let your Mom consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will assess the plan you have introduced your Mom to and explain if any of the principles are potentially dangerous.
