    Seeing toast on the tray let’s me know you folks absolutely do not “get it” regarding
    the proper diet for anybody with T 1 diabetes—
    eliminate processed carbs.

    This is NOT a burdensome way to eat—almost all my partners do.
    In California, the fast food places sell hamburgers wrapped in lettuce, it has become so mainstream.

    • Pat Davitt, PhD says:

      Lee Ann, I totally agree. It seems as though they fed different dinners of high fat and low fat, but probably did not remove the corresponding carbs from the high fat diet. Otherwise, it makes not feasible sense that glucose levels stayed equally high for longer. Show us the dietary makeup and glucose results.
