What happened when I ate the junk-food lunch at the diabetes meeting?
Above, you can see the blood-sugar graph. My blood sugar predictably shot up from all the sugar and starch. It peaked at around 160 mg/dl (9 mmol/l). The red circles above represent actual measurements, the line represents an average of two consecutive measurements.
A normal fasting blood sugar is between 70 mg/dl and 100 mg/dl (4 and 6 mmol/l). After a meal, blood glucose should stay below 160 mg/dl (8.7 mmol/l) to be considered normal.
Fortunately I don’t have diabetes, but still the blood sugar spikes to levels that usually only diabetics attain. The more often you do this, the worse it is. Or well, worse for the person who eats. But the better for those who sell diabetes medications and other diabetes-related things here at this conference.
With 15,000 participants here for an entire week, one might wonder how many will get type 2 diabetes from eating the junk that is served at the diabetes conference. Some of the participants will probably become part of the rapidly growing diabetes epidemic that feeds the entire diabetes industry.
There’s potential for an even bigger conference next year.
Next week it’s time for the world’s largest scientific meeting about diabetes, EASD, in Vienna. Nearly 20,000 physicians, scientists, vendors and other participants will be there.
The major problem with diabetes treatment today is that diabetics are advised to eat the very thing that they can’t handle – large amounts of carbohydrates. This makes it necessary for diabetics to use a lot of potentially dangerous drugs, they gain weight and suffer long-term complications from uncontrolled blood sugar. The question is if this will even be mentioned on stage at the conference.
On short notice I decided to attend the conference myself on Monday. It could be exciting, or what do you think? Reports are coming up.
Cholesterol-lowering drugs, so called statins, may cause diabetes. This is nowadays well-known and is listed among side effects you’re at risk for. But did pharmaceutical companies know this long before and try to keep it secret for as long as possible?
Thousands of people who have taken the drug and gotten diabetes have now sued Pfizer for keeping this a secret:
It will be interesting to see the result of the upcoming review, as Pfizer previously has had to pay record-high fraud fines for putting greed before patient safety.
Is it possible to reverse type 2 diabetes?
A high-fat diet is good for diabetics. The Swedish study that recently showed that a moderate low-carbohydrate diet provides moderate benefits for diabetics has now been further analyzed.
We now also find signs of reduced inflammation in diabetics, who were given advice on a high-fat diet with fewer carbohydrates:
A new scientific review article from a large group of scientists put forward the argument that a low-carbohydrate diet should be the first approach in managing both type 2 and type 1 diabetes.
Behind the article is a large group of scientists who have long focused on low-carb diets. But the name that stands out to me is Arne Astrup, the influential Danish professor and nutrition researcher who in recent years became convinced and changed sides in the debate. And dared to admit it! A scientist with integrity.
I received a fascinating story from Anthony in Australia about what happened when he ended up in the emergency room, where it was discovered that he had high blood pressure. This led him to search for better health on his own, not following the usual diet recommendations he was given. Here’s his story: Continue Reading →
Do you have to settle for being sick and taking more and more medications if you get type 2 diabetes?
Yet another person, who didn’t settle for this is Torbjörn Kadebro. Here’s his story about the dietary change he made on his own – and what happened at his checkup with his diabetes nurse: Continue Reading →
I received an e-mail from a physician about this: Continue Reading →
