Healthy Eating for Life to Prevent and Treat Diabetes
By Patricia Bertron, R.D.
Many people with diabetes--and their doctors--think of the condition as a one-way street. After diagnosis, we begin a never-ending series of blood-sugar tests, medication adjustments, and gradually worsening symptoms. Happily, that has begun to change.
In a research study at PCRM, in cooperation with doctors at Georgetown University, a group of people with Type 2 diabetes, the kind that typically begins in adulthood, tested a new diabetic diet. They found that their blood sugars got better and better, and their need for medication quickly fell. Many have found that as improvements continued, the disease simply disappears.
