    Oh my word 58g carbs per portion! Who on earth would even think of putting potatoes onto a pizza?!!! Oh, yes of course an organisation for diabetics! If this wasn't so sick it would be funny. No wonder people get confused. affraid

    If I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have believed it. Not even as a student did I make anything as disgusting as a potato pizza, and to find it on a diabetes charity web site is totally horrifying. What on this earth are they trying to do to people? (Don't answer, we don't want to hear from their lawyers.)
    I suppose the nutrition is in the sprig of rosemary.
    Yours, deeply shocked, going for a lie down,

    No, no, Avocado, it's not just the cake that's missing, surely pizza should be served with chips!

    Boys and girls, stop panicking, it's all explained here,

    "The myth that people with diabetes should not eat any sugar still persists ……… good blood glucose control can still be achieved when sugar and sugar-containing foods are eaten."

    And where is "here"? Our very own national diabetes charity web site,

    Phew! Thanks for that Sally. Silly me, I thought sugar was 'bad' for everyone not just us diabetics.

    Seriously though, what is the world coming to when an organisation set up to help diabetics gives such dreadful advice?

    Eddie's having a break right now, so I'll say it for him "Follow the money"

    DUK are in my opinion a complete and utter disgrace. Catering only for the carb and medication addicted and their big pharma pay masters. The pay masters who would run for the hills should DUK ever promote a low carb diet.

    Some of the outfits that keep the diet of slow death going.

    DUK The diabetes charity.

    Abbott Bayer Boehringer Ingelheim Bristol Myers Squibb Bupa Bunzl Everyclick First Capital Connect Flora pro.activ Kodak Lilly Lloyds Pharmacy Menarini Merck Serono Morphy Richards Merck Sharp & Dohme Limited Novartis Novo Nordisk Nursing Times PAL Technologies Ltd Pfizer Rowlands Pharmacies Sanofi-aventis SplendaTakeda Tesco Diets

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    On Dr Kendrick's latest blog, there is a comment from "Maria", recalling a German saying,

    "a doctor needs to keep his patient just between life and death"

    I suspect that applies to "health" charities as well.

    Dundee cake and mince pies not on your list I'll bet  Laughing

    If they need donations they should ask their big pharma corporate sponsors for more, DUK after all promote a diet that ensures bumper profits for them.
