As a patient, much of the health advice around type 2 diabetes seems absurd to the point it might be funny if so many of us weren’t dying young.
For example, although we suffer from too much blood sugar, they tell us to eat carbohydrates (sugar) – the very thing that causes high blood sugar. Why? To keep our blood sugar high enough so that our medicine doesn’t cause our blood sugar to go too low. As if we should help our medicine, not the other way around.
Heaven forbid we should simply eat less sugar!
