Over 90% of type one diabetics and 50% of type two diabetics fail to get safe control of their blood glucose. Long term this leads to diabetics having the highest rate of blindness for working age people, the highest number of non trauma amputations and highest levels of kidney failure. It is my opinion the BDA and many of it’s dietitians have played a huge roll in this catastrophe. The BDA promote a diet to diabetics that almost guarantees failure for most diabetics. High in processed carbohydrates, which turn to sugars once digested, and low in fats man has ate for thousands of years. Did you get that “turn to sugars once digested” can you think of anything more ludicrous, than telling the most allergic to sugar people on the planet i.e. diabetics, to base their diet on sugar. How could this almost unbelievable situation have come about, you may be asking yourself. I suspect you will not be surprised to learn the BDA accepts funding from the following companies Danone, Abbott Nutrition, Nestle, Cereal Partners, BelVita Breakfast Biscuits and Coca Cola.
At this stage you may be thinking the future for diabetics looks bleak. Fortunately there's hope on the horizon. All over the world, true medical professionals from A1 rated Science Professors to Orthopaedic Surgeons, General Practitioners and honest and well informed dietitians have seen the light. Countless thousands of diabetics have followed the low carb higher healthy fat lifestyles, these medical pro’s promote, this has proved to be their salvation. Non diabetic blood glucose numbers, a reduction or complete withdrawal from medication (type two diabetics only) many active years added to their lives, the benefits list goes on and on. The savings in human misery and financial are incalculable. The BDA and other dietetic outfits response to the good news, ranges from ridicule on social media sites, to protracted trials of and legal threats, against those whose only interest is to help people to a healthier safer place.
One last point for today. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed (two Metformin pills per day). My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my low carb higher healthy fats diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost eight years, I have asked medical professionals and dietitians, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb? The silence has been deafening!
