    Jenny Ruhl's latest

    Post by Indy51 on Mon Feb 23, 2015 5:33 am

    Jenny has slowed down on posting updates, but every so often will blog about latest news. The latest blog covers 3 topics:

    1) Afreeza inhaled insulin
    2) Diabetic mice model of research is tainted: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/288296.php
    3) Glycemic Index is "junk science" (for diabetics and non-diabetics alike)

    From the Indy link re. the low GI index.

    "One diet included high carbohydrate foods that are high on the glycemic index. A second diet included high-carbohydrate, low-glycemic food. A third included low-carbohydrate, high-glycemic food. The final include low-carbohydrate, low-glycemic food.

    The difference between the diets could be small, because fruits and grains may be healthy, but fall in different parts of the glycemic index.

    “A higher glycemic diet would have more bananas and instant oatmeal,” said Sacks. “A lower glycemic index would have more dried apricots and steel cut oats.”

    The participants were provided with all their meals, snacks and calorie-containing drinks to complete the diets.

    Overall, the researchers generally found no improvement in key markers of health between low- and high-glycemic diets.

    "There was no improvement in reactions to the hormone insulin, which allows the body to turn sugar - or glucose - in the blood into energy. There was no improvement in the amount of fat in people’s blood. There was also no improvement in systolic blood pressure, which is the top number of a reading that measures pressure during a heartbeat."

    The late and great Barry Groves completely destroyed the low GI index years ago as can be seen on the video. Old hands will remember the usual suspects at the flog defending the low GI index as something that works, as always they are 100% wrong.

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 !

    I read Jenny's blog a few days ago and was delighted to see the piece about GI. It has always seemed like utter nonsense to me, long before I was interested in diabetes, but put together with diabetes, it's positively dangerous. When my husband was diagnosed, we went pretty much straight on to low carb, but did try out a few GI type things for a while, such as very chunky wholemeal pasta and ultra-natural type porridges. We've now given both up, there are so many other lovely things to eat and why put up blood sugars for beige gunk.

    Many thanks for posting this link Indy sunny

    It's always good to read an article from Jenny whether you are a diabetic or like me someone living with a diabetic.

    Have to say it's LCHF for me  Smile

    Resurrecting an older thread about Jenny Ruhl ...

    I saw this recently which maybe of interest to some readers ...

    Jenny Ruhl just published a brand new diabetes book - she says ' I wanted to let you know that my brand new diabetes book has finally launched.  This is the first completely new health book I've written since 2012. It's 240 pages long in print and packed full of stuff I didn't have room for in Blood Sugar 101.'
