Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas that acts like a key to let glucose from the food we eat pass from the blood stream into the cells in the body to produce energy. All carbohydrate foods are broken down into glucose in the blood. Insulin helps glucose get into the cells.

The idea that diabetic retinopathy can be managed or stopped on its tracks through nutrition, is good news. Since, blood vessels in the retina of DR sufferers become damaged overtime, and this may lead to blindness.

Now, a European study confirms that high protein diets cause non-alcoholic fatty liver, type 2 diabetes and that fructose (natural sugar from fruit) is not the cause of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

This rumor has run rampant in the medical community because fruit has a tendency to raise blood sugar levels in diabetics for short periods of time. For this reason, diabetics needlessly suffer with a number of diet-related conditions that have come to be accepted as complications of the disease. Symptoms such as constipation, anxiety, GERD, indigestion, weight gain, kidney problems, eye issues and fatty liver have become part and parcel with being diabetic. Many, if not most of these accepted conditions are attributed to the physiological stress of eating the high protein, low carbohydrate diet suggested by many nutritionists and medical practitioners – but hey, the blood sugar is under control.
