Default Diabetes and Phase 1

I read on another BB that the South Beach Diet website recommends diabetics, esp. those on meds, start at phase 2. Have any of you ever heard this? I tried looking on the official SB website but all it seemed to have was info on signing up for the online plan.

I have type 2 diabetes and I am taking meds for it. I'm fired up about starting (I've read a lot online but haven't bought the book yet, waiting for payday.) I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing.

and to The Beach.

I'm Type II as well and somewhat agree with a Phase II start. SBD has really stabilized my BGL - I test at 6.0 on the HA1C so am in good control.

The problem with Phase I can be that our blood sugars could drop too low. This was a problem with the original Phase I. However, now that dairy, tomatoes and legumes are added, Phase I could be used with careful monitoring of your BGL to ensure it doesn't drop too low.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

my best advice is to talk to your doctor. I know of one person who did p1 as a fragile diabetic but she was in daily contact with her doctor....
