Part 1: Introduction
Before 'healthy eating' was introduced in the 1980s there were many fewer diabetics than there are today. Those who were diabetic lived on a very low-carb, high-fat diet. And as long as they stayed on it, they were completely healthy.
Today diabetics are recommended by dieticians to eat more carbohydrates ('carbohydrate' is just a common name for all kinds of sugar, glucose, sucrose, starch and cellulose, all of which are composed of sugars) all of which raise blood glucose levels.
Diabetics are then prescribed drugs to bring down the resultant high levels of glucose in their blood.
Diabetics are then told to compensate for the insulin strengthening drugs and insulin the doctors prescribe by eating yet more carbohydrates.
This means diabetics have to increase their drugs . . . to compensate for the recommendation by the dieticians to eat more carbohydrates/sugar . . . to compensate for the insulin strengthening drugs and insulin the doctors prescribe . . . to compensate for the recommendation by the dieticians to eat more carbohydrates/sugar . . . And so it goes on
Which is why diabetics' condition always gets worse, and why doctors tell their diabetic patients that their disease is incurable.
Fortunately, it is also patently nonsense. Type-2 diabetes is not incurable, but drugs are not the answer to the problem; they are part of the problem.
