Diabetes, the sugar lobby and Big Pharma

Diabetes, the sugar lobby and Big Pharma


Posted by Michael West | Nov 25, 2017 | Business , Government
Just four tubs of Nestle Soleil Chocolate Mousse, whisked until smooth, and four Arnotts Original Tim Tams, some cocoa powder, brown sugar and a few other goodies, and presto!
Let them eat cake! declares Australian Diabetic Living Magazine. Its a good thing that half a cup of milk in the recipe is low-fat milk or the Chocolate Tim Tam Cake featured below might cause high blood sugar levels.
This sort of thing from the food media and the diabetic education industry does little to quell the rising tide of critics who charge that industry is recklessly pushing sugar to the benefit of drug giants who make billions of dollar selling insulin.Diabetes is big business. According to Reuters , the number of people living with diabetes has tripled since 2000, pushing the global cost of the disease to $850 billion a year.
With this sort of money at stake, an investigation into the ties between the medical profession, Big Pharma, the packaged food giants and the diabetes lobby is overdue.
This story makes no judgement on medical issues. Many believe the answer to the Type 2 diabetes epidemic which, as opposed to Type 1 diabetes, is linked to obesity and lack of exercise rests with diet, cutting out sugar and carbohydrates (glucose) that is, rather than advising patients toeat carbs and then use medication to deal with the increased blood glucose levels.
The publication of this opinion piece a few days ago set off a firestorm on Twitter. Many rejected the article, saying it was irresponsible to ignore conventional me Continue reading

12 Diabetes Myths Debunked

12 Diabetes Myths Debunked


Untruths about diabetes and people who have diabetes abound. Get the facts surrounding 12 common myths.
Everyone knows everything about diabetes particularly those who dont have it. Uniquely among health conditions, uninformed family members, friends, and even strangers think they know all about your diabetes and are quick to judge you, give you advice, or ask whether you can do, whatever the activity under discussion is.
There are numerous myths regarding diabetes. Many are archaic scraps of information that simply no longer are true. Others were never true in the first place, but have been believed by people both with diabetes and without it. Finally, some myths are just curiously bizarre.
The following are truths to dispel some of the fiction surrounding diabetes.
Myth #1: People with diabetes cant eat sugar.
Truth: I doubt theres a person with diabetes who hasnt been asked, Can you eat that?
Sugar, in any volume, cannot cause diabetes.
When a person has diabetes, the body doesnt deal well with high levels of sugar, but that doesnt bar sugar. In fact, every cell in the body lives on glucose. Its the energy source of life, and the body converts all food to glucose for fuel.
How much sugar can people with diabetes eat? That depends on the person and the medications he or she takes. But sugar in no way is banned from modern diabetes meal planning.
Long ago, people with diabetes were told not to eat foods containing sugar. We now know that people with diabetes can consume sugar safely, but this restriction has remained the most widely held diabetes myth. Myths Continue reading

Makers gonna makea book about diabetes devices? Kids book written by @DanaMLewis
Last year after Christmas, I was running around my parents backyard with my niece when she spotted my CGM sensor on my arm and asked what it was. Im always struck when my niece and nephews have noticed my diabetes devices, and am interested to see what new humans think about and how they encounter things and what they mean. In this case, I explained the CGM and we went back to running around, but it stuck in my mind for a few days.
I also remember the excitement and attention any time a kids book has a character with diabetes in it, or a storyline of diabetes, because theres just not much out there. I was diagnosed at 14, but I love seeing PWDs in the wild and like the idea of more diabetes inclusion in materials for all ages.
So, I wrote a kids book, with the goal of introducing the concept of diabetes devices and more broadly, how people are different in different ways. I talked my incredible artist aunt into illustrating this book.
This book is primarily for me and my niece and nephews, but I know there might be a few other people who like the idea, too (even as there may be a few people who sniff at the idea*). I investigated the publishing options and decided to go with self-publishing, which would allow for:
The cheapest copies for me as the author, to be able to give to my various family members who want them.
The ability to make it available to other people who want copies.
The ability to price said copies so its accessible and reasonable to order easily.
(Its actually cheaper Continue reading
