    A thread on "better nutrition" for diabetes management... or better still, a step further... even the reversal of the disease... even neuropathy.

    One physician at the forefront of the area is Dr Neal Barnard (Wiki Link) & his research into a plant based diet & diabetes management. His website here for further info.



    I have been reading & hearing about his work for a while now & I personally feel it is information that everybody should be aware of if they are responsible for treating diabetics. For example, here is a link of interest...
    - Section Four: Diabetes.

    With a section on neuropathy...

    - Nutritional Factors in Neuropathy:
    Some other research of interest...

    - Regression of Diabetic Neuropathy with Total Vegetarian (Vegan) Diet:
    Milton G. Crane and Clyde Sample.
    - Favorable impact of a vegan diet with exercise on hemorheology: implications for control of diabetic neuropathy:
    Mark F. McCarty.
    - Usefulness of Vegetarian and Vegan Diets for Treating Type 2 Diabetes:
    Caroline B. Trapp and Neal D. Barnard.
    - Vegetarian and vegan diets in type 2 diabetes management:
    Neal D Barnard1,2, Heather I Katcher2, David JA Jenkins3, Joshua Cohen1, Gabrielle Turner-McGrievy4
    Having an interest in nutrition & being a Podiatrist treating quite a few diabetic patients, I sometimes inform them (I know – I need to be careful) of the benefits of a plant based diet (after quizzing them on their own diet). Most people out there have absolutely no idea what is a healthy/suitable diet/food source... & from the feedback I get from most of my patients after informing their G.P’s (of my info.) of the apparent benefits of a plant based diet... neither do the G.P’s know/understand or want to know/understand. Is it any wonder people are remaining sick & the incidence of diabetes continues to rise!

    I know this thread has been focussing on better nutrition relating to wound healing & neuropathy (of the "diabetic foot")... but it would also be beneficial to understand nutritional links to the incidence of Type 2 Diabetes... as the saying goes... "prevention is better than cure"... that said, cure could also be obtained through better nutritional practices:

    Dietary Protein Intake and Incidence of Type 2 Diabetes in Europe: The EPIC-INTERACT Case-Cohort Study:

    Here is a review within Medscape:

    High Protein Intake Linked to Higher Type 2 Diabetes Incidence:

    Red Meat and Poultry Tied to Increased Type 2 Diabetes Risk
    Veronica Hackethal, MD
    September 21, 2017

    "Eating red meat or darker cuts of poultry may be associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, with higher levels of consumption linked to higher risk, according to new results from the Singapore Chinese Health Study, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

    The trial is one of the largest to evaluate meat consumption and diabetes risk in Asian populations.

    "Compared with those who ate the least amount, those with the highest levels (approximately one serving a day) of red meat or poultry consumption had a 23% and 15% increased risk of diabetes, respectively," lead author Woon-Puay Koh, PhD, a professor at Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore, commented by email.

    Results also suggest that different types of meat may have different effects on type 2 diabetes risk. Varying levels of heme iron, which is found only in meat, may be involved.

    "After adjustment for heme-iron content in the diet, the red-meat/diabetes association was still present, suggesting that other chemicals present in red meat could be accountable for the increase in risk of diabetes," Dr Koh explained.

    "Conversely, the association between poultry intake and diabetes risk went away, suggesting that this risk was attributable to the heme-iron content in poultry." The darker cuts of poultry, such as chicken thighs, have higher heme-iron content than breast meat, she noted... "
