I pity anyone under the care of this woman:
"According to Franz, as long as people eat less or cover their carb intake
with medications, they can keep blood glucose levels in check with a healthy
diet. "What determines the blood glucose level," she says, is "certainly the
amount of carbs you eat, but it's the balance between carbs and insulin."
What's more, she points out, the moderate diet is all about freedom. "If
someone told me you have diabetes but you can't eat carbs, I'd be floored,"
says Franz. "I would cry out in alarm and say, 'But I deserve the right to
eat healthfully, and I can keep my blood glucose in control by watching my
portion sizes and, if necessary, taking medication.' "
I "deserve" the right to not have diabetes, but I'm stone out of luck.
