I found the following on dietdoctor.com/diabetes Dec 2, 2013:
Since then the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare published their guidelines for healthcare workers. They have become receptive to several options regarding diets for diabetics and now warmly recommend a low-carbohydrate diet as a first choice.
In addition, as early as 2008 the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare examined and approved advice on LCHF within the health care system. Advice on LCHF is, according to the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare’s review, in accordance with science and proven knowledge. In other words, certified health care workers, who give such advice (for example myself) can feel completely confident.
Even the American Diabetic Association (ADA) is, since 2008, approving advice on a low-carbohydrate diet for diabetics.
