After evaluating comments and postings on twitter, and other social media from BDA members. The comments were considered for relevance for the average diabetic, for those looking to lose weight, the safe reduction of blood glucose numbers, and to evaluate if any sound information whatsoever could be found.
Objective: The objective of this meta-analysis was to summarise the evidence related to the aforementioned control method. A full evaluation was made of the BDA dietary recommendations for diabetics, the value of the information was considered, together with an assessment of the participants often unprofessional, smug, pompous and we know it all attitude and behaviour. BDA members displayed increasing paranoia, and at times a state of pronounced delusion, when non members demonstrated type two diabetes could be reversed, and medication reduced on the excellent BBC program Doctor in the house. As can be read here.
Conclusions: After thorough and exhaustive examination of the said posts and tweets, they were considered to be as much use to the average diabetic, as a rubber beak on a woodpecker! Study participants suffered from extreme Lowcarbus Antius Maximus Cretinopathy a chronic condition.. It is highly likely the recommended BDA dietary advice for diabetics leads to highly elevated blood glucose numbers, a deteriorating lipid panel and an ever-increasing reliance on diabetes medication.
Remedy: A diet of 1500-2500 calories per day based on non starchy vegetables, high quality natural fats and adequate proteins. Very active BDA dietitians may require a higher calorie intake. It is envisaged a comprehensive re-training system will need to be implemented before progress is made. Clearly conflicts of interests anomalies need to be addressed to re-establish credibility.

Professor Leopold J Knobheadski unlike so many high profile dietitians has no conflicting interests.
