The ignorance is shocking.
Carbs are the killers. You need insulin for the cells to burn glucose.
Fats and proteins do not require insulin for the body to use them as fuel.
My Type 1 diabetic sun can eat cubes of butter all day long and not bolus a single unit of insulin to deal with it. Two double-stuff oreo cookies, however, require 1.5 units (21 grams of carbs).
Deen is suffering from insulin resistance, which is the body’s rejection of the insulin it produces.
Weight loss CAN cure Type 2 in many cases, but not in all cases. Met a rock hard 45 year old women, 118 lbs, and has Type 2.
The state of research on diabetes is pathetic. I was at a seminar on Type 1 in Seattle and asked whether anyone had actually confirmed that the Islet of Langerhorn cells in the pancreas had actual died.
The answer was, across almost 70 years of research on the topic - “No.”
Hasn’t stopped hospitals from explaining to patients that their Islet cells have died, causing a ‘sundowning’ of insulin production from the pancreas.
A couple of Canadian researches, on a whim, wondered whether those Islet cells, rather than be dead, were instead inflamed to the point where the cells couldn’t excrete the insulin.
They gave rats bred with type 1 diabetes a shot of capscacin (basically, the ‘hot’ in ‘hot sauce’ and hot peppers) and sure enough it cured the rats to the point where they were producing insulin.
The shot had to be readminitsterd once a month, but the point was that a $2.65 shot of capscascin could ‘cure’ a type 1 diabetic.
The state of modern science is not in a good place of late.

Particularly when the welfare of Big Carbohydrate (think the wheat and corn producers) and Big Pharma hang in the balance.
I hear Hostess, the manufacturer of Twinkies, is filing for bankruptcy. Perhaps people are finally realizing sugar is not a health food.
Thank you. It’s not the fat and protein. It’s the sugar and carbs. I think this country has so terrorized people over heart disease that we’re all living off sugar and carbs and we’ll all get diabetes instead.
