The Role of nutrition Therapy in the management of Diabetes Mellitus
This author has a wonderful concluding line in this article about nutrition being the “cornerstone of therapy” for diabetes. This is so true, and, coupled with exercise, can be some of the most powerful tools we have to prevent and treat this chronic disease responsible for so many deaths in the civilized world. Unfortunately, many (if not most) patients who are given the diagnosis of diabetes are not given the info they need. Many I have come across are never told to avoid pasta (most pasta is made of enriched wheat flour) and never educated in whole grains vs refined carbs.
