DIABETICS- LATEST RESEARCH ON DIET

Diabetics until recently were given a diet that is low in all types of carbohydrates. And a diet rich in protein. However, grains, legumes, and fruits were discouraged. This was because of their complex hydrocarbon (starch) and sugar content. Most importantly, the starch and sugar are converted to glucose during digestion.

Moreover, this low carbohydrate diet was seen as the most ideal food for diabetics. And apparently allowed good blood sugar level control.

Nevertheless, diabetics on the low carbohydrate diet have a high incidence of Arteriosclerosis, Cardiovascular diseases and heart attack.

Excess fat and protein promote arteriosclerosis . When combined with lack of grains, legumes, and antioxidant fruits, this explains why this type of diet is harmful.
