Looks like many of you are so-so about the ADA. I did hear there is another that is tougher than the ADA but I don’t recall what the nutritionist said it was.

I'm not so-so with the ADA at all about their recommendations for carb intake or safe BG. I believe you may be referring to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists. Here is a link about it.. You really should read the Bloodsugar 101 website and quit rolling the dice. The dice are loaded, and not in our favor.

The AACE Recommends A Post-Meal Blood Sugar Target Below 140 mg/dl

In 2007, The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, an organization of specialists who treat diabetes, published a White Paper recommending that blood sugar should not be allowed to rise above 140 mg/dl two hours after a meal.

Decades ago, before injected insulin was common and diabetes wonder drugs (like glipizide) didn't exist, it was very common for people with diabetes to eat foods very low in carbohydrates. Makes sense; after all, if our bodies already cannot handle carbs properly, how reasonable is it to keep piling them on like we didn't have the disease?

But it's only in the last few years that the ADA has even acknowledged that a low-carb diet can be useful in addressing the damage caused by high blood glucose (never mind the legions of us here and elsewhere who do manage our diabetes that way).

Couple that with guidelines for post-meal BG levels that are about 35% higher than levels endocrinologists recently have found cause organ damage, and it starts to look like the ADA doesn't really value actually helping people with diabetes.

So, yeah, I'm not even so-so on the ADA.

I haven't done anything different, but glad it's coming down again.
