AMM, I think this posting by AH is trying to direct interested members here to websites that sell these "glyconutrients". I googled that word and came up with a slew of infomercial-type sites. I apologize in advance if I'm wrong but as always, we need to be careful of snake oil. Just my opinion.
I'm not an expert nor am I a doctor. I have learned many facts from this forum and from reading material both online and in books. The forum moderators here are the most experienced and informed in this non-professional community. What I do know is that carbs will increase the blood sugar readings. An online article mentioned here a couple of weeks ago related a physician that told her patients to stop eating carbs and some of the patients were able to stop meds for diabetes - but I believe those patients were the ones whose diabetes was caused by being overweight. Not every diabetic's body will react like that. Not every diabetic is overweight. As AMM says, if the body doesn't produce insulin, it's not going to suddenly go back to producing it. It would be an anomaly. Lifestyle changes do have an affect: diet and eating patterns and exercise. If this is what SH is saying, yes, that's true, but it would hardly be correct to say all diabetics could be off insulin merely by changing lifestyle.
My two cents. Lanie
I'm not sure what you mean by "convert when cooked". Your physician would be able to refer you to a registered dietician who can tell you about foods, glycemic index, and so on. In my experience, I can't eat some foods that others can eat because my body reacts to them with high blood sugar readings, like brown rice or whole grain bread. I may be able to eat a bite or two but not a whole portion. Each person has to find what foods work for him or her. Portion size is also important as well as daily exercise. Again, every person's body may react differently to all this and that's why we need to be more attentive to what we do now. I'm sure there are many good cook books out there. I have the South Beach diet book and have found it useful. You can check on the Web for recipes, too. And there are other members who may suggest other books.
Good luck, Lanie
