Diabetes UK the charity and the silent assassins.

Please forgive me if I am talking to the converted or knowledgeable, or well controlled diabetic, please bear with me. It is a fact that sugar and highly processed carbohydrates (carbs turn to sugar when digested) raise blood glucose higher and faster than any other food group. It is also a fact there is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate for a human being. Clearly it does not require the brains of Einstein to work out, high carbohydrate foods are the enemy to all diabetics. It is a fact the more carbohydrates a diabetic consumes the higher the quantities of injected insulin or diabetes medications are required to reduce blood glucose numbers to a safe and healthy level. Still with me? thank you.

The largest diabetes charity in the UK is Diabetes UK, they promote a diet high in carbohydrates to diabetics, the recipe featured below would have my and many other minimal or no diabetes medication diabetics into the danger zone, and my and their blood glucose numbers would rise to dangerously high levels and would stay dangerously high for many hours. Why does DUK promote a high carb diet you may be thinking, why promote a diet that requires expensive and potentially lethal medication, when a change in diet is all that is required for many diabetics to remain safe. In my opinion the reason for DUK’s stance on diet is all about money. DUK have big pharma sponsors, they would almost undoubtedly lose funding if they heavily promoted a low carb higher fat diet.

Increasingly all around the world, some of the most eminent Scientists and Medical Professionals are recommending a lower carb higher natural fat diet for the safe control of diabetes. Until Diabetes UK does the same, they will remain in my opinion an organisation not fit for purpose. It is also my opinion they have sent thousands, possibly millions of diabetics to an early grave. Some years ago Diabetes UK run a campaign called “Diabetes The Silent Assassin” for me and others, Diabetes UK are the assassins, although certainly not silent.

Last words to UK based Dr. Malcolm Kendrick.

“The reality is that over the years, and around the world we have killed literally millions of diabetics by advising them to eat a high-carb diet and avoid fats. Only now is it being recognised that previous advice was and remains useless, dangerous and scientifically illiterate"

It's true and absolutely not understandable why they do this.

I don't know if it needs a public outcry or a lawsuit to fix this, but it needs to be changed in the future.

Interestingly, almost every government agency around the globe seeme to promote carbs, even for people with diabetes! It's crazy.

Because almost all are controlled by junk food and big pharma.

Only if you think the health of fat lazy people who brought it on themselves is an issue.

I'm sure that's how they rationalise it, but with such total illogic it's hard to tell.
