DIABETES NEWS : How Low Carb Can Help : Plus a Favourite Recipe

Sharing some recent news relating to Diabetes and Eating Low Carb !
(please use links provided to read further details)

Landmark diabetes report says low-carb is a top option: 

A recent Western Australia government inquiry may result in a huge public health breakthrough for treatment of type 2 diabetes. The result of the inquiry, a report titled, “The Food Fix: The role of diet in type 2 diabetes prevention and management,” calls for low-carbohydrate diets to be one of three options formally offered to patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. 

The report, submitted by the Education and Health Standing Committee of Western Australia’s parliament, also says that remission, not just management, should be the goal of type 2 diabetes interventions. 

As part of the inquiry, a team of policymakers from Western Australia travelled to the UK to meet Dr. David Unwin, tour his clinic, meet a number of his patients, and enjoy a low-carbohydrate dinner. 

The report notes that Dr. Unwin learned about the value of a low-carbohydrate diet for treating type 2 diabetes by working with patients in his clinic. He found that his patients did not understand that starchy foods, such as potatoes and rice, end up breaking down into sugar in the body. He created a graphic showing that eating a five-ounce serving of rice has a similar effect on blood glucose as consuming 10 teaspoons of sugar.

New study: A low-carb breakfast could be ideal for diabetes control:

What should you eat for breakfast if you have diabetes? We’ve always recommended that you skip the carbs and fuel up with fat and protein instead — and a new study confirms that this is excellent advice.

The study, published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, has shown that eating a low-carbohydrate, high-fat breakfast can help prevent blood sugar spikes in people with type 2 diabetes:

Word is spreading about how low-carb eating can reverse type 2 diabetes: 

Ask the general public about type 2 diabetes and the vast majority won’t know yet that the increasingly-diagnosed disorder can often be put into remission with low-carb, keto eating.

Looks and sounds amazing, my husband is one of the type two diabetics that controls his health with diet, he briefly was on medication but then we changed his diet and that was the key. He eats lower carbs but not no carb, he still eats one slice of bread a day, he eats potatoes carrots all the veggies and fruits but what he doesn’t eat is added sugar things like cakes cookies, candies, syrups, jams, he had such a sweet tooth but through moderation and diet he does perfectly, but it’s not an extreme low carb diet at all. He eats eggs every morning and his cholesterol numbers are great so that’s that!

Thanks to everyone for their comments, they are all appreciated...

Laurie - so pleased that with a change of diet your husband can control his Type 2 Diabetes, that is what my husband Eddie did when he was first diagnosed and his blood sugar readings are still good. He finds that by eating no more than fifty carbs per day, (and most days less) higher healthy fats and moderate protein he holds good figures.

Mary - thanks for sharing that you 'try to eat low carb these days. It sure helped to bring my A1C down.' that's so good to know.

All the best Jan

Lovely to read that remission as well as management should be the goal. As it should for most/all? ailments.

As usual this blog presents information valuable to everyone trying to do the right things by their food intake. I'm really keen on this non-carb breakfast as a main meal. So today it's bacon, egg, tinned tomatoes and fried mushrooms at 6pm.
