Black OP's outfits.

In the UK there are approximately four million diabetics. Around 90% are type two diabetics. The majority of type two diabetics could control their diabetes with a low carb higher healthy natural fat lifestyle. Medication if required, is usually minimal. Type one diabetics also benefit from low carb, by way of much reduced insulin usage, which very often leads to more stable control of blood glucose levels. The organisations below do not support or recommend a low carb diet. Therefore, blood glucose control, for the majority of diabetics is abysmal. It is clear to see why this horrendous situation has come about. Conflicts of interest.

Ask yourself, how long would large food companies and big pharma, financially support these organisations, if their dietary recommendations resulted in less sales, and loss of revenue. A low carb diet is not a no carb diet. The foods shown below, have been included in my low carb (50 carbs per day) diet for nine years. Countless hospital blood tests confirm, my diet has caused no ill effects whatsoever, in fact the contrary. My Doctor describes my diabetes control as excellent. It is worth noting, the NHS annual audited stats show, over 90% of type one diabetics and over 70% of type two diabetics, fail to get to a safe level of blood glucose control, let alone excellent. 

Why do I call these organisations Black OP's outfits. It is my opinion, these organisations are doing diabetics great harm, and are perpetuating the epidemics of obesity and often linked type two diabetes. Many are no more than wolves in sheep clothing, far too many, have taken the thirty pieces of silver.

Results for England. The National Diabetes Audit 2010-2011

Percentage of registered Type 1 patients in England

HbA1c > 6.5% (48 mmol/mol) = 92.6%
HbA1c > 7.5% (58 mmol/mol) = 71.3%
HbA1c > 10.0% (86 mmol/mol) = 18.1%

Percentage of registered Type 2 patients in England

HbA1c > 6.5% (48 mmol/mol = 72.5%
HbA1c > 7.5% (58 mmol/mol) = 32.6%
HbA1c >10.0% (86 mmol/mol) = 6.8%

These results are very similar to those obtained over the past 5 - 6 years.

No doctors try to recommend low carb or otherwise, medication first always!

Hi Debbie, primarily Eddie was talking about diabetics here.
We appreciate there are many medical conditions that require medication.

All the best Jan

I eat low carb a lot of the time and try to eat lots of vegetables (especially in the summer and fall when I have the veggies from my garden). I do eat carbs sometimes, but I think it is a good idea to try changing our diets when we need to- and of course, sometimes medication is needed.
