> Today's Topic: Diabetic Diets - Part Two
> Some of the year 2002 American Diabetes Association nutrition
> recommendations follow.  People with diabetes are urged to consume
> carbohydrate from whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and low-fat milk.
> The total amount of carbohydrate is more important than the glycemic
> index.  Sucrose need not be restricted by diabetics, but total
> carbohydrate should not increase if sugar is added.  Nonnutritive
> sweeteners are safe when consumed within levels established by the
> U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
> There is no evidence to suggest protein intake should be modified if
> kidney function is normal.  Reduced energy intake and modest weight
> loss improve insulin resistance and blood sugar levels.  Routine
> supplementation with antioxidants is not advised.

> HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Fifty-one scientific
> statements were made in the latest guidelines, and they were ranked
> based on how much supporting evidence there was: 16 had an A rating
> because of evidence from multiple, well-conducted studies, 17 received
> a B, 3 got a C, and 15 an E representing recommendations based on
> expert opinion.  This shows that about one-third of the
> recommendations are not necessarily based on strong evidence.
