Diet Doctorin Anne MullensColumn: No improvement in diabetes care since 2005. Oh yeah?
The column, by Jane Brody in The New York Times, cited a recent study that found three out of four people with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes are unable to adequately manage the disease’s major risk factors for serious complications. The risk factors include high blood glucose, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking.
Furthermore, despite significant advances in the delivery of diabetes care and availability of more effective medications, the study revealed that since 2005 for the nation as a whole, there has been little or no improvement in managing diabetes and preventing or delaying the damage it can cause.
Well, we have some exciting, countering news for Brody and The New York Times! Major advances in diabetes prevention and management HAVE occurred over the last decade.
It is called the low-carb, keto diet. And it is affordable, accessible, reduces the cost of medications and treatment, and for most patients, leads to significant glycemic improvement and likely reduces the risk of complications. Many can even achieve complete reversal of the disease.

Mullensin vastaus: Edistystä on tapahtunut. Se on LCHF.
