Sugar Plum Dreams – Diabetes Health | December 16, 2009

I’m usually a big fan of Diabetes Health’s articles but struggle with any that start promoting sugar as OK. It isn’t for me, that’s all I know. Blood test results prove it. “For those with diabetes the holiday season is especially challenging, as carbohydrates, including sugar, have the greatest impact on blood glucose levels. The good news is that sugar is not completely off limits for those with diabetes. Studies have found that blood sugar rises no higher in response to sugar than it does many other carbohydrate-rich foods such as white bread, rice, or potatoes. Thus, the current dietary recommendations set forth by the American Diabetes Association state that it is the total amount of carbohydrates consumed that is most important, not the type.”
