    Is this article a joke? Every Type 2 diabetic I know has been told to limit their carb intake. Not sure where this report got its information, but anyone dealing with type 2 knows to limit carbs. Now, of course, many patients don't, therefore they have to take medication, but its not for misinformation...just life choices.

      Are they told to limit to 20 gms a day or less?   And does the current Diabetic Education support that instruction by providing meal plan examples, LCHF resources?

    • Douglas Lehman Douglas Lehman United States says:

      I think Randel, that the point of the article is that by advising Type 2 diabetic folks to continue with the level of carbohydrate intake that you reference in your limited carb intake comment, that would be akin to advising a 2 pack per day smoker to consider moving to 1 pack or so. Wouldn't that be the case?

      Every cell in the human body runs on sugar - glucose. The brain runs exclusively on glucose. This article is the stupidest claim of science yet. Fruits are the innate foods of humans who are a part of the primate tribe. Calorie - carb restriction will create far more diabetics.... I've helped tons of people lose the symptoms of diabetes by adopting a fruit centered high carb low fat low protein diet.
