Descripción del libro
Type 2 diabetes is a disease of too much sugar in the bloodstream. Over time, high blood sugar can cause diabetic complications such as nerve pain, kidney damage and blindness.
In part, elevated blood sugar comes from eating an excess of carbohydrates (sweet and starchy foods) at every meal. In fact, before the invention of insulin, physicians used carbohydrate restriction to treat diabetes. In contrast, the modern advice given to diabetics is to get most of their calories from carbohydrate. To counteract the resulting high blood sugar, patients are also prescribed diabetic medications and insulin. This increases the costs of diabetic care and does nothing to resolve the underlying issue. The logical solution is to restrict carbohydrate intake.
Following a low carbohydrate, fat-burning ketogenic diet treats type 2 diabetes at the root cause. Avoiding sugar and starch and choosing healthy fats and protein at meals helps keep blood sugar normal and steady. As blood-sugar levels decline, less medication is needed, and the threat of complications fades.
Conquer Type 2 Diabetes with a Ketogenic Diet contains over 200 pages of referenced information providing the practical information you need to implement a ketogenic diet for type 2 diabetes while managing insulin and diabetic medication needs.
