Re: [IPk] lack of contact Abi's experiences



Err Pat, isn't this a bit of an oversimplification? I think some of the type
IIs would be up in arms about this statement (though luckily for you there
aren't many type IIs on this list, and (I would imagine) no type IIs on diet
alone.

Obviously keeping down total carbs is one factor, but certainly not the only 
one. Losing weight is often a vital component, as is keeping BP low (avoiding 
too much salt, high fat foods, too much alcohol, etc.)
Dieticians should be looking at all these factors too.
