    RCGP launches GP training on low carb diet for diabetes patients

    Post by graham64 on Tue Jul 17 2018, 22:11

    GPs are being offered training about the ‘transformative’ benefits of a lower carbohydrate diet for type two diabetes patients through a new online course launched by the RCGP.

    The 30-minute learning module, entitled ‘Type 2 diabetes and the low GI diet’, explains the role carbohydrates and the glycaemic index play in people’s diets.

    It also ‘reminds’ GPs about ‘basic physiological concepts such as glycolysis, gluconeogenesis and lipolysis and their role in diabetes,’ said the RCGP.

    The training is broken into three sections including an assessment of current knowledge, information about the benefits of a low carbohydrate diet, and a quiz.

    It has been developed by Dr David Unwin, who previously won the NHS Innovator of the Year award in 2016 for his research into a low carbohydrate diet as an alternative to drug therapy in type two diabetes.

    Dr Unwin, who wrote the module in collaboration with Diabetes.co.uk, said: 'Implementing a low-carb approach for people with T2D has been transformative for our patients and practice staff, with significant diabetes drug budget savings into the bargain of over £35,000 a year.

    'Many patients understand they should give up sugar but still consume high glycaemic index carbohydrates that digest down into surprising amounts of glucose.

    ‘We see proud patients putting their diabetes into drug-free remission on a weekly basis by cutting the carbs.'

    RCGP medical director for eLearning Dr Dirk Pilat said: ‘This course discusses the role of carbohydrates and the glycaemic index in our diet and specifically its importance for individuals with type two diabetes.

    ‘It reminds primary care health professionals about basic physiological concepts such as glycolysis, gluconeogenesis and lipolysis and their role in diabetes.’

    ‘Using real-world examples, it discusses the importance of a low-GI diet for patients affected by diabetes and how to maximise the potential of lifestyle modification to create patient impact,’ he added.

    Research has previously shown type two diabetes can be reversed through an intensive weight management programme. The programme includes a low calorie, nutrient-complete diet for three to five months, food reintroduction, an increase in physical activity and long-term support to maintain weight loss

    No doubt they will be enraged at the thought of Doctors inappropriately reversing diabetes without their input  Rolling Eyes  and the thought of the damage done to their sponsors 

    Talking of which

    Don't worry, the vegans have their back

    I just saw a TV ad for Kelloggs latest high carb high sugar chemical based nightmare which is vegan.

    My daughter gets this magazine that contains RCGPs information.
    I just wonder how this information is presented to GPs?  If it is just a reference to the online course in a magazine it has to be weighed against all the current guidelines and
    advice from the BDA for the diabetic and dietary elements of GP practices.

    I wouldnt hold your breath until the ADA in the States change their guidelines. I hope Nina and co are successful in that venture but that will be 2020.

    No the ADA, DUK and others will be reluctant to admit the dietary advice they've dishing out for years is wrong  Sad

    But the recipe is low fat so must be ok for us  Rolling Eyes

    Seriously though recipes like this should come with a health warning for diabetics many of who are directed to DUK on diagnosis
