    The Fight Against Dietary Misinformation Continues… If we are to beat type 2 diabetes, the truth must be heard

    From Dr Malhotra
    The Fight Against Dietary Misinformation Continues…
    If we are to beat type 2 diabetes, the truth must be heard

    Article in Men's Health
    www.menshealth.co.uk/food-nutrition/the-fight-against-dietary-misinformation-continues

    This is a long article but well worth the read ...

    I have copied the 'final word' paragraph but do please read the full article using the link given above.
    (Diet Doctor site also highlighted this magazine piece recently)


    Final word
    So, where do we go from here?
    A systematic review of all randomised controlled trials comparing low fat (synonymous with low calorie) with low carbohydrate approaches for type 2 diabetes and important health markers, including those linked to heart disease and quality of life, is currently underway and the results will be published in the next few months. It is being conducted by the most eminent Cochrane academics in the fields of research methodology, Zbys Fedorowicz, Esther Van Zuuren and Professor of Diabetes at Leiden University Hanno Pijl.

    Not only will they make direct comparisons but there will also be a review of the quality of the research methods in all the clinical trials.

    This will determine what the optimum dietary approach is for most people with type 2 diabetes and help give us the final answer to inform policy makers, doctors and the public of the best ways to help tackle a condition affecting hundreds of millions globally and the single most costly condition to the NHS.

    Whatever the outcome, the history of public health advocacy has taught us that the science alone is not sufficient in improving population health and opposition from powerful vested interests needs to be overcome. But one thing is clear:  that a diet free from processed food combined with regular activity, getting a good sleep, reducing stress and a strong sense of community could hold the secrets to a healthier and happier life.

    All the best Jan

    I have read that before Jan  Cool It's a good article by Aseem Malhotra  he makes some valid points that diabetics can relate to and pre diabetics would find it helpful

    Unsurprisingly dietitians have got their knickers in a twist over his comments complaining about him disrespecting fellow HCPs pot and kettle spring to mind given their constant sniping at Aseem



    As a diabetic would I trust a dietitian  Shocked the answer is a big resounding no  Sad

    Whenever a dietician spouts off this should be playing in the background



    If they are so good where are all the well controlled diabetics?

    Early results from Virta

    Meanwhile DUK bigs up Roy Taylor

    Here's what may be happening

    ".
    The above findings provide an additional mechanism by which
    the metabolic syndrome can contribute to cognitive difficulties
    and how it can ‘feed forward’ towards the obesity phenotype. The
    work also suggests that a significant lowering of serum
    triglyceride levels could reverse the cognitive impairments and
    help with weight loss, although these and our previous studies
    suggest that triglycerides will likely have to be lowered to below
    100 mg dl − 1
    .
    In conclusion, we showed that triglycerides cross the BBB and
    induce central receptor resistance to leptin and insulin, with
    resulting effects on feeding and cognition. These results suggest
    that targeting triglyceride levels in blood could be a strategy for
    treating obesity and the cognitive problems associated with CNS
    resistance to leptin and insulin."

    We know how to reduce triglycerides don't we?
