Social Media and Diabetes Care

As long as physicians mislead patients about the causal relationship between carbohydrate consumption and diabetes, and the necessity for a carbohydrate restricted diet and normal blood sugars, and as long as physicians continue to deny the value of euglycemia or normal blood sugars for the prevention and reversal of diabetic complications, as long as physicians lie about the causal relationship between saturated fats about the causal relationships between saturated fat consumption and coronary disease and grossly overstate the dangers of hypoglycemia and then fail to understand how to prevent it, any social media that is recommended by a physician is suspect and should be engaged in with caution by the patient.

Here is a link to an article on the subject in Physician’s weekly.

What I finally learned about blood sugar control ultimately had little to do with what I was told.
