> Today's Topic: Diabetic Diets - Part One
> The American Diabetes Association issued new nutrition guidelines for
> the treatment and prevention of diabetes and its complications in
> January 2002.  The news media widely reported that some sweets were
> now allowed for diabetics, as if this was the only thing that mattered
> to diabetics.  Of course, it had been known for many years that
> moderate amounts of sugars were not harmful.  However, the background
> and nutrition recommendations are so complex that it took two
> scientific articles of 50 pages
> < http://care.diabetesjournals.org/cgi/content/full/25/1/148 >  and
> 10 pages < 
> http://care.diabetesjournals.org/cgi/content/full/25/1/202 >
> to summarize the relevant material.
> HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: A three paragraph summary
> cannot do justice to all the important issues on nutrition for
> diabetics.  This is true for many of the stories we comment on.
> Perspective takes a lot of time and learning in any area in which
> research continues to chip away at answers.  Tomorrow, we will
> summarize some of the points covered in the two reports within our
> usual limit.  Do not use this as an eating guide.
