A flood of sugar
T2D is like having a flood in your home from a burst in the plumbing system. The excess water is comparable to excess glucose in the body. However, there are fundamental differences in the responses to the two sets of circumstances. We can gain some useful insight by considering how we would deal with the house flood using the T2D approach……….
It makes little sense, then, that doctors and dietitians still advise people with T2D to increase or at the very least maintain their intake of carbohydrates. Any suggestion that those with a flood should pump in more water would be greeted with derision.
