Shanny, I have to admit that I am not strong in biochemistry, microbiology, or plain old biology. I am just awaiting more analysis from better informed people. Personally, I do not prefer high fat diets - moderation in everything is what I strive for. But what is moderate for me can be high or low for another personThis has certainly taken the cyber-medics by storm - nearly 3000 hits on Google already today! What are your thoughts, Rad?
I was talking about this with a friend last night. I said if diabetes wasn't an issue, and I could feel good on any diet I chose - I would gleefully flee back to my carbs of fruit, grains, crusty breads, but ... I'd like to keep a bit of my new-found bacon for flavoringPersonally, I do not prefer high fat diets -

This isn't a whine, honest, but I do get tired of fat - the mouth-feel if nothing else. I need more variety in my diet to keep me from burning out. Before, I could eat risotto and fruit happily every day if need be.
Thanks Jim - valid suggestion. When I said needing more variety, I meant I have to vary my meals a lot more, constantly cook new/different things, because I get tired of the same thing a lot quicker.Well, if that is how you feel about your diet, maybe you should check out an insulin basal/bolus system so you would have more liberty to eat a more varied diet. Insulin does give a lot more freedom to choose.
which we know is not true in around 20% of cases so that puts a big fat hole in their follow-up assumptions.Newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics tend to have one thing in common: obesity.
If diet is the cause, then why no mention of a dietary intervention? Jump straight to something patentable and profitable?"The identification of the molecular players in this pathway to diabetes suggests new therapeutic targets and approaches towards developing an effective preventative or perhaps curative treatment," Dr. Marth continued. "This may be accomplished by beta cell gene therapy or by drugs that interfere with this pathway in order to maintain normal beta cell function."
Really? That's interesting since it's well known the role of pancreatic beta cells in diabetes as well as insulin-resistance... Why this would surprise anyone is beyond me...Some_Clueless_Researcher said:"The observation that beta cell malfunction significantly contributes to multiple disease signs, including insulin resistance, was unexpected. "
Yeah, and *white* flour is natural, and comes from wheat ... And *white* sugar is natural and comes from things like beets... mmm.... HealthyBut it's NATURAL... it's *just* CORN sugar!
