Here is the article titled: New Diabetes Guideline Urges Tailored Therapy
Although in the article it is stated:
Lifestyle intervention still remains the first step in management, but the statement also calls for patient education focusing on diet and exercise in order to achieve lifestyle changes.
They spend most of the time focusing drug therapies like metformin and insulin. No mention of low-carb/controlled carb dieting, exercising, etc.–you know, lifestyle intervention!
Although they mention HbA1c being an important measurement for monitoring, they call for an individualized approach that is tailored to the patients needs. What is that number? No mention.
How do you get a high HbA1c? No mention…well, I bet they would imply that its improper/incorrect/inadequate use of insulin or metformin.
After reading this, I do get a bit frazzled, to say the least. If you have a disease like diabetes whose hallmark symptom is intolerance to carbohydrates, and you focus on controlling everything else except the elephant in the room, which is carbohydrates and reducing their intake, then you have only a few things things you can believe.
One is this is a conspiracy theory, promulgated by the ADA and its mignons to keep people in a perpetual state of sickness which is financially profitable for BigPharma, which is an extension of that lluminati/freemason cabal that is trying to wield influence through subversive geo-politcal manipulation and currency manipulation in order to dominate the world and keep people in perpetual slavery, etc.
The other is that people are sincerely out-of-touch and/or just plain dumb.
Sadly, it’s hard sometimes to say which one I agree with more….
