Irresponsible reporting. This is why I've stopped reading the newspaper or watching news on TV - and if I do, I take it with a very large grain of salt.

The goal of a headline is to hook people (who, it is assumed, are generally fairly dim and have ADD) into reading the whole article. Then the piece itself must be designed to encourage a readthrough. Accuracy seems to have taken a backseat. Makes me sick. (and it's certainly helped make the rest of us sick too)

Whatever happened to Occam's Razor? Simplest explaination - drugging the hell outta already health-compromised people while stuffing them full of food that further exacorbates their condition kills them. Like, hello.

"maybe I'm jaded, but I doubt we'll see much in the way to shift the focus to insulin any time soon"

Me too Regina! I was starting to think it was just a matter of time, but I'm not so sure now!

Do you think they'll ever admit that it's the high insulin levels and constant blood sugar ups and downs that are the real problem?

Given the mountain of evidence pointing to elevated insulin (hyperinsulinemia) associated with so many health issues, I'm left wondering why it remains such an elusive line of inquiry - maybe I'm jaded, but I doubt we'll see much in the way to shift the focus to insulin any time soon...to do that would mean abandonment of the idea we need most of our energy each day from carbohydrate since it is the primary force driving up insulin.

Laura concludes her article this way:

"So the next time you see a scary medical headline in the news, take a deep breath, and get some facts."

Unfortunately, the full facts are not forthcoming, as of yet.

We know that they were on a veritable chemical stew of drugs, which leads us to believe that all blood sugar control was to be achieved exclusively through drug treatment, and that they were still expected to eat the ridiculous amount of carbs the ADA insists on... but do we know that? Not yet, they haven't admitted how much carb these diabetics were eating.

There's a huge difference between achieving normal blood glucose through a diet of significantly lowered carb consumption, with minimal drug use, and achieving it purely through drugs designed to increase insulin levels to cope with whatever level of carbs they're consuming.

Do you think they'll ever admit that it's the high insulin levels and constant blood sugar ups and downs that are the real problem?

Or is that something we can't expect to see until this generation of researchers, scientists and nutritionists are replaced by a more renegade generation that refuses to blindly accept the low fat dogma?

We are to think that the protocol of ACCORD that included having dietitians nag participants about eating high carb low fat diets on a regular basis, and then put them on several blood sugar drugs including sulfonylureas which have been associated with causing heart attacks and Actos and Avandia which both cause heart failure in people who didn't have it, and then put them on several blood pressure drugs including beta blockers which worsen blood sugar, and then top that off with two different kinds of cholesterol drugs was a tad flawed.

The coverage of this story is sickening. It is as if the media wants to believe that all people with diabetes are doomed.

And it is part of the whole media attitude of "They did it to themselves those lazy gluttons who gave themselves diabetes."
