First of all, a word of appreciation for all of you who make this forum what it is: I visit it most days and have benefitted from the support and the knowledge. Thank you.
It's that knowledge that I'm hoping to tap into with my current question.
I often see people here referring to low carbohydrate diets.
I've been reading about possible links between carbs, insulin, diabetes and - a particular personal concern of mine - dementia, particularly the theories that cognitive decline can be affected by glucose levels and slowed down with very low carb diets.
The difficulty with such reading is that the internet is full of people with loud voices and books / merchandise / web traffic to promote. I'm not a scientist and am aware that what might look like a credible argument, with footnotes and citations to studies and links to other references, could be either cutting edge and promising or just nonsense.
I'd be grateful for people's views on the subject generally and suggestions as to where to learn more.
My own GCA PMR story is that I was diagnosed with both this February aged 58 and put on 60mg Prednisilone. (UK, NHS) I'd tapered down to 12.5mg by May and was generally feeling good and going about life as though I had nothing wrong with me so, unsurprisingly, the pain and the exhaustion have returned and I am now back on 24mg.
