My Mother Has Type 2 Diabetes and Her Doctor Claims a Vegetarian Diet is Dangerous

I am pretty frustrated because my mother has type 2 diabetes and her physician has told her that a vegetarian diet is not recommended because it may be dangerous to her health. Personally, I feel that she needs to seek another physician because I’m not seeing a major positive impact in her health with her current physician. She has gone back to eating pork and beef because she claims her physician has told her these things would not impact her health at all and any health problems she has are not related to the two.

Currently, I am gathering all of the “vegetarian” articles that I can find from medical websites with credible physicians as well as sources. Despite attempting to encourage a healthier lifestyle, I feel discouraged by the amount of excuses, and recommendations from a doctor who hasn’t produced many results for my mother.

By the way, most of the sources I found state that a vegetarian diet is a good way to manage diabetes.
