The glycemic index was not written for diabetics and there is most definitely a need for diabetics to avoid many that are on the low GI list.

I got a book that was written for diabetics using the GI. Don't remember the name of it now. Australian Dr. It does not work for diabetics in the long run in my opinion because it does not minimize carbs, it recommends things that have reduced spikes but consequentially has longer time of elevated BG.

No argument there, Mary0110, but as someone who has a family full of type 2 diabetics (mother, grandfather, grandmother, sister), Iíve so far managed to avoid it, and keep my A1C near 5 by eating reasonable portions, avoiding unnecessary sugars (sodas, juices, cakes, sweets), and paying attention to the glycemic load. Maybe some low-gL foods affect those with a post-diabetic diagnosis differently. Please note the difference between glycemic index and glycemic load; some high glycemic index foods are definitely a must to avoid.

It is difficult to accept advice from a non-diabetic that contradicts everything I have learned from testing foods with my meter. That's where the most important evidence lies for me. The ADA advocates 45g of carbs per meal - BUT - my meter tells me that I can only handle 8-10g of carbs per meal. You say a diabetic can eat a lot of carrots. My meter tells me that I cannot eat but one baby carrot at a time.

Yes...and having a normally functioning pancreas. Not everyone who eats hi glycemic index OR glycemic load foods develops diabetes and some people who follow the diet you are advancing will join the club for no obvious reason.

It's great that you've taken the bull by the horns for yourself but honestly....you do not face the same trials as T1s, T2s or any of the myriad variety of diabetics. It's just not as simple as you'd like it to be. I truly hope you never have to find that out personally.
