I thought this might be an interesting opener....
A quote I often come across in my Google travels in the realm of diabetes is, "Carbs are poison for diabetics". I would say that I am onboard with this. I can only really write from the perspective of a newly diagnosed T2 that APPEARS to still make insulin so please forgive me if I make statements that are incorrect. One goal I am looking into is helping people that are newly diagnosed. I can't save the world but if I can get information to people and it helps them then it is worth it.
So I was thinking random thoughts while puttering around the store and one thought that popped up was wondering if carbohydrates are poison in general? Before you laugh my thought is that alcohol is also a poison. We can metabolize alcohol, small amounts of it seem to be beneficial, we can live without alcohol but it can make life more pleasurable when used carefully.
I was wondering if the same might be true with simple carbohydrates like sugars? Never in history has there been such an abundance of convenient food (much of it loaded with simple carbohydrate) and there has also been an explosion in diabetes. So my thought is could carbohydrates be to the pancreas as alcohol is to the liver?
Just today's random thought.
