14 November was World Diabetes Day.
Australia’s “National Diabetes Strategy 2021-2030” was released and finally the Australian policy mentions the opportunity for remission of type 2 diabetes, including a low carbohydrate dietary approach for the first time! Yes, finally! Something that we have been doing with our clients for years and having great success.
Previously type 2 diabetes has been only described as a progressive disease, giving people little hope of doing anything about it. Along with poor advice that was likely to support the progression of the disease. I have been talking about this issue for over 10 years, sometimes it felt like I was bashing my head up against a brick wall, so I am very happy to finally see that our nutrition “authorities” are listening and changing! This has been a long time coming!!
