It is also a fact, carbohydrates turn to sugars once digested. It is also a fact, diabetics are the most allergic to sugar people on the planet. It is also a fact, sugar has no beneficial nutrients whatsoever, they add calories, nothing more. At this stage, you maybe wondering why dietitians recommend a diet to diabetics, that almost guarantees failure, and for many diabetics, blindness, amputations and kidney failure. The answer is money. The unpalatable truth, outfits like The British Dietetic Association, and their counterparts all over the world are being sponsored by companies that produce high carb and very often, high sugar foods. The BDA accepts or has accepted sponsorship and funding from Danone, Abbott Nutrition, Nestle, Cereal Partners, BelVita Breakfast Biscuits and Coca Cola. Some of the highest profile BDA dietitians have also received money, from numerous companies promoting high sugar mass produced factory foods.
You may be thinking, how did this completely immoral and horrendous situation come about. We have almost come to expect, a never ending stream of lies from politicians, but dietitians consider themselves health professionals, yet they place money above the health of countless people. Ask yourself this, have you ever seen a communication or plea from a science Professor, Surgeon or GP asking to be trusted? I very much doubt it, yet the BDA’s motto for years has been “Trust A Dietitian” the reason is manifestly obvious, so many do not trust a dietitian, and who can blame them. I suspect many more do not "Trust A Dietitian" after what has been called "The nutritional trial of the century"

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%

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