    It’s Time to Change How We Treat Diabetes

    An Interview with Dr. Mariela Glandt

    Dr. Mariela Glandt’s father, who has lived with type 1 diabetes for over 50 years, inspired her to become an endocrinologist. She trained at Harvard and Columbia University and for almost two decades she had great success treating people with diabetes using the medications at her disposal. About two years ago, however, something changed. Dr. Glandt’s eyes were opened to the concept of food as medicine. “I had always recommended a low carb diet, but didn’t understand what a powerful tool it is,” she said. I ran a very successful clinic without talking about food because I’d always thought that food was the dietitian’s domain.”

    And there's more yet another doctor who uses LC for diabetes patients  Cool

    Māori doctor says less carbs, more fats to combat diabetes

    November is NZ Diabetes Action month and Dr Lily Fraser is on a mission to help change Māori attitudes towards nutrition as a means to combat this debilitating disease.

    The Ministry of Health considers diabetes to be the "largest and fastest growing health issue we face in New Zealand".

    Dr Fraser is a GP and clinical director at Turuki Health Care, a Māori provider in South Auckland's Mangere. 

    She is the first person from a Kura Kaupapa Māori education background to graduate from Medical School.  

    When it comes to diabetes, Dr Lily Fraser says there's a need to significantly reduce carbohydrate intake.

    "Those are the foods that turn into sugar so if you consume those foods they enter your blood and turn into sugar."

    In addition, she encourages a diet high in fats and believes Māori knew of its benefits.

    "Kererū was one of the fine delicacies of Māori, same with Muttonbird."

    Dr Fraser says a high fat diet is creating positive results for her patients.


    "They've finished using medicine and insulin, they've dropped weight, they're healthy, happy, exercising and working with their families."

    Every so often I become disillusioned at the increasing amount of negativity, backed by the deep pockets of Big Food, Big Pharma and Big Veganism all working in cahoots. As Michael Eades has written more than once, the depth of their dumbth is astonishing.

    Much of the fightback has come from successful patients, and there are now increasing numbers of researchers into Real Science rubbishing the dogma. It's great to see actual doctors, and even some dieticians, noticing things like outcomes.
