Drs. Gordon, Marinelli and Hecht present a panel discussion on the challenges and benefits of utilizing Bernstein's protocols in clinical practice. Drs. Hecht and Gordon have studied directly with Dr. Bernstein, and Dr. Marinelli has studied his work extensively. Specific issues such as the challenges of treating persons with insulin dependent diabetes and integrating insulin dosing and dietary therapy are covered. The Bernstein approach to normalizing blood sugars will be discussed with the feelings of frustration which originate from living with limited dietary choices in the face of a culture which celebrates the joys of eating.
