It's seems to me that this would be a _bad_ thing for diabetics, even if it
did produce a flatter BG curve.

1. Since diabetics are much more prone to heart disease, wouldn't the
increased fat intake raise the lipid levels in the bloodstream, thereby
increasing the risk of heart disease/atherosclerosis even higher?

2. Since diabetics' kidneys are already badly stressed, wouldn't the
increased protein intake put extra strain on the kidneys and speed up their

3. Wouldn't the slow digestion of the relatively large quantities of fat and
protein make it very difficult to figure out one's basal rates?  Especially
if gastroparesis were involved?

Any insight on these questions would be highly appreciated...
