    I had one hell of a bun fight on twitter yesterday, with one of the most rabid anti low carbers I have ever come across, and by the cringe, I have known some. I thought I would check him out this morning and what do I find..............8.5K tweets and only five followers, and one just happens to be the legendary Cashin. Ya could not make it up  wtf

    On further investigation, I find my latest kick butt troll is not the full ticket, I have personal knowledge of autism, not his fault, but easy to see why Sister Scurvy is one of his five followers. But thems the breaks folks. affraid

    Autism? Oh that explains a lot, I thought he was just a divot.

    Regulation of hepatic glucose
    metabolism in health and disease

    http://sci-hub.hk/10.1038/nrendo.2017.80

    you don't necessarily need to follow all the pathways involved, just look at the diagrams and ask yourself why we would evolve such sophisticated mechanisms for manufacturing and controlling glucose if we were meant to overdose on the stuff from our diets.

    "I guess all it takes to be a dietitian in this country is surviving the lobotomy"

    Not one of mine but I suspect I shall steal it for future use.

    This was interesting

    http://www.cardiovascularbusiness.com/topics/lipid-metabolic/scientists-discover-new-form-diabetes-caused-gene-mutation

    paper here

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-017-00895-9.pdf

    This comes close to describing me, and others. One of my fellow sufferers has it mostly in females in her family, but in mine it mostly hits males, and others with a similar syndrome have it in both sexes (all genders?) The distribution is wrong for it to be a genuine monogenetic MODY but I suspect other gene variants may come to light once people stop believing the dogma that being fat causes diabetes, and eating fat makes you fat, or the newer dogma that eating meat causes diabetes (sigh)

    Is this what happens to dietitians when they follow their own dietary advice

    Mellor is an intelligent cretin. Clever enough to sound convincing to the easily convinced but as clueless as the rest.

    Meanwhile Real Science is pulling together a lot of threads in the pattern of metabolic disaster and finding common pathways towards a whole bunch of seemingly disparate diseases, all of which have purely coincidentally increased since low fat diets based on manufactured foodlike substances have been touted.

    Interesting to see one or two once-rabid low carb antis are gradually moderating their positions though.

    Depends on how you define intelligence don't forget it was Mellor that stated Low Carb diets removed all sources carbohydrates, a dietitian that doesn't know the difference between low carb and no carb hardly inspires confidence in his profession

    What I can state with confidence is that Mellor's association the BDA promote a diet for adults and children that has removed all sources of dairy, meat and fish

    Meanwhile on twitter Carrie Ruxton RD

    Ruxton again  Rolling Eyes


    The fact that the diet does not allow consumption of dairy products is also criticised by some nutrition experts, including the British Dietetic Association. Eliminating key food groups such as dairy products from your diet raises the chance of nutritional deficiencies. 


    And yet the BDA actively promotes a vegan diet that eliminates dairy   Mad

    That's different, because animals.

    I get the impression some of them are starting to see through the bollocks they have been marketing but they are more concerned about their social status as "experts" than their patients' health.

    Do you actually see any diabetics NOT being told to eat HCLF? Mostly they do this despite, not because of, their dieticians.

    This surprised me

    https://www.webmd.com/diet/ss/slideshow-ketogenic-diet

    WebMD is the sort of site doctors are supposed to use. In fact back in the days of PCTs I heard of some doctors whose computers were locked to "approved" sites only, so this is bit of a game changer.

    Had to laugh at Mellor waffling on the DiscoStew tweet could not come up with an answer to why according to the BDA it's ok to remove dairy for vegans but not on paleo, maybe there's ££££££ to be made out of veganism

    Well most of the manufactured foodlike substances they tout are vegan. Coke, Kelloggs, Unilever, Nestle and of course sugar. What could possibly go wrong?

    James Di Nicolantonio has been on a roll recently, and not a bread one.
