Are we treating type 2 diabetes all wrong? Could achieving glucose control with a dietary change be way healthier than using medications? Here’s a good quick summary:
The standard treatment of [type 2 diabetes], endorsed by the drug industry, is to base every meal on carbohydrate, which may worsen the underlying insulin response and [insulin resistance], rapidly followed by multiple chronic drug prescriptions, which may be ineffective or harmful even while temporarily improving HbA1c.
A low carbohydrate, high healthy fat ‘real food’ diet can reverse the underlying dietary cause, offload the pressure on glucose and lipid metabolism, and allow the [insulin resistance and diabetes] to gradually recover.
