The problem of diabetes is getting worse and worse. These years have developed too fast, humans have become more and more fat, and many countries are beginning to be overwhelmed.
For the treatment of diabetes, the traditional guide is to eat less fat (low-fat diet), carbohydrate intake of 50%, eat coarse grains and so on.
Slowly, we found that such a diet will only make the blood sugar problem worse.
Because, we have been in the vicious circle of ” sweet sugar → taking medicine (reducing sugar) → eating sugar → taking medicine again) , such a method will never cure diabetes.
Therefore, there is also a saying in the market: Diabetes is irreversible, as long as you have diabetes, you have to take medicine and insulin for a lifetime.
Finally, various complications, blindness, rotten feet (amputation), kidney failure, high blood pressure, and heart attack.
Diabetes is so terrible, don’t we really have a way?
In fact, there is a very simple way, that is, do not eat sugar, as long as you do not eat sugar, your blood sugar will be stable, your insulin sensitivity will be higher and higher, diabetes will naturally improve.
However, this method was denied in the “Glycolipid War” decades ago.
A few decades ago, there were two scientists in the United States. One group believed that sugar and carbohydrates were the main culprit of other chronic diseases such as heart disease. Another group believed that fat is the devil.
In the end, because of the interest relationship, the party that won the sugar won, the fat, the party that smashed the sugar was finally beaten into the cold.
For a long time, mainstream nutrition believes that a low-carb diet is unscientific, and fat is the chief culprit of many diseases (diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure).
All nutrition textbooks teach us to have less oil (low-fat diet), carbohydrates account for at least 50%, so that is a healthy diet.
The dietary pyramid in the United States is such a suggestion. The whole world is imitating. In the end, there are more and more people with diabetes, and the problem of chronic diseases is getting worse.
In fact, as early as 1797, some people saw the essence of diabetes. Scottish force surgeon John Rollo wrote a book, Cases of the Diabetes mellitus, who was the first expert to treat diabetes with low carbon. 1
Recently, in recent years, more and more countries and people have realized the benefits of a low-carb diet.
Since last year, the United States’ diabetes reversal agency, Virta began experimenting. The low-carbon diet for one year, the probability of reversal of diabetics is 60%, and 94% of people use drugs greatly reduced.
In June 2018, the UK began to recognize and recommend a low-carb diet to treat diabetes. Related reading → Just, the UK announced a decision that related to the lives of billions of people…..
The effect is very obvious. Even their politicians (the vice chairman of the Labor Party) have personally participated in the campaign to promote a low-carb diet.

Earlier, in August 2018 , the Australian Diabetes Association updated their treatment plan, and the low-carb diet was first allowed. 2
On October 4, 2018, the Diabetes Consensus Report published by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the European Diabetes Association (EASD) The American Diabetes Association (ADA) & the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) A low-carb diet is included in the adult diabetes management program. 3

This time, the Joint Consensus Report of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the European Diabetes Research Association (EASD) once again hammered the benefits of a low-carb diet for diabetes.
They are now beginning to realize that a low-carb diet is safe and effective for adult diabetes management .
Recognize a low carbohydrate dietas safe and effective lifestyle management of T2D in adults.
After being suppressed for decades, the low-carb diet finally began to sprout again. Ada-2019
Low-carb diet, approved by the Diabetes Association
On December 17, 2018 , the newly released 2019 American Diabetes Association (ADA) Diabetes Guide, for the first time, recognized the benefits of a low-carb diet for people with diabetes. 4
Studies have found that for patients with type 2 diabetes, a low-carb diet can improve hyperglycemia and reduce hypoglycemic agents.
Research indicates that low carbohydrate eating plans may result in improved glycemia and have the potential to reduce antihyperglycemic medications for individuals with type 2 diabetes…
This is the first time that the American Diabetes Association’s guidelines recognize a low-carb diet and are the first to recognize a low-carb diet that can reduce medication (medical intervention).
More and more people realize that reducing rice noodles can stabilize blood sugar , fat and blood sugar are not related. The main reason for diabetes is because carbohydrates are eaten more.
(common high carbon water food)
However, the Diabetes Association still claims that the persistence of a low-carb diet is not very good. The reason behind it is that everyone knows because humans love sugar too much.
For example, in China, it is simply terrible to eat a starch-based staple food (the main source of sugar). Many people can’t do it. This is indeed the low-carbon diet and the biggest difficulty.
In fact, for the average person, it only takes about 2 weeks to fully adapt to not eating staple food.
In addition, the Diabetes Association also reminded that a low-carb diet is not suitable for everyone, and there are certain risks for some people. The ADA does not recommend a low-carb diet for these people.
Pregnant and lactating women, as well as people who have problems with eating disorders .
People who have serious kidney problems themselves, who are taking SGLT2 inhibitors , should be aware of the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis.
This is already very good, and I am very happy to see the American Diabetes Association’s slow recognition of the low-carb diet. It is a little bit better every year.
I really hope that more people with diabetes know this news , and don’t waste their chance to improve their disease because of information asymmetry .
The key thin dragon said
More than 4 million years of human history, from 10,000 years ago, humans began to enter the agricultural society. In recent centuries, we have begun to eat a lot of refined carbohydrates such as rice noodles and processed foods.
These foods are the most susceptible to blood sugar, insulin , insulin resistance, and most likely to cause a variety of chronic diseases.
Compared to other places, we Asians eat more carbohydrates, and Chinese people’s three meals a day are basically full of sugar.
Morning: steamed buns, fried dough, rice noodles, rice noodles, minced meat, spicy soup, pancakes
at noon: rice, stir-fry, pasta, etc. Evening: rice stir-fry, porridge , pickles, barbecue, hot pot, etc.
If you eat this, it is a typical high-carbohydrate (sugar) diet , and the staple food such as rice noodles eat too much.
In fact, very simple logic, to reduce blood sugar, reduce sugar intake, why low-carbon diet has not been recognized?
Because it is too anti-traditional, traditional nutrition thinks that sugar is a must, and that humans must eat sugar .
In fact, humans can eat less sugar or even eat sugar. We don’t need carbohydrates at all, and use fat to power ourselves.
However, fat has been considered a demon , and a low-carb diet has not been recognized, the reason is here.
In fact, when we do not consume sugar, the human body can also convert protein and fat into sugar through the way of saccharification, and provide enough sugar to the body, so don’t worry.
I sincerely hope that more and more people will soon realize the harmful effects of refined carbohydrates. People with diabetes must try to eat as little as possible.
