A change in position by the American Diabetes Association

Monday, April 21, 2014

I just found this article earlier today in " Diabetes Spectrum", a publication by the American Diabetes Association and thought it was interesting that there seems to be a much greater openness toward low-carbohydrate diets for diabetics and also towards the consumption of saturated fats.

What do you think?
I started a thread about this article in the nutrion section of the messageboards as well.

    Great article. It's a relief to see some authorities finally opening the doors on what many of us have known for quite a while. While the author isn't officially ADA, at least his viewpoint is endorsed sufficiently by the ADA to publish in their journal.

About time.

BTW -- there's also a very interesting article linked on that page (sidebar) about TCM in diabetes. A very nice overview of that philosophy.

Thanks for the post!

    Very interesting article! I was also interested in the information about T3 and free T3 conversion as I have thyroid disease as well (Hashimotos). This makes is sooooooo difficult to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Thanks for the information.
