Oh this bit is very telling!

Quote
Further research and exploration has enabled a better understanding of metabolism and the fact humans can survive without an exogenous supply of carbohydrate as 56g of glucose can be derived from every 100g of protein ingested and 10g of glucose can be derived from every 100g of fat ingested.
Thus, the lower limit of dietary carbs compatible with life is zero, provided that adequate amounts of protein and fat are consumed.

This is interesting.  I wonder if the NHS will eventually change its advice on what diabetics should or should not eat.   :-\
Diabetes Type2 diagnosed March 2014.  Treated by diet only.  HbA1c 60 on diagnosis, 52 in June 2014, 50 October 2014, 44 December 2014, 48 May 2015, 50 Sep 2015, 53 Jan 2016, 50 Oct 2016, 56 Feb 2017, 50 Jun 2017. 50 Aug 2017.  Pacemaker fitted 2008.

When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want 'em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

I think some of the NHS personnel are getting there, but it's slow going!
