Look at the data analysis, done by chemical engineer -- Ivor Cummins -- on which one is the real villain in case of repeat heart attacks
No wonder it's the commonly ignored one -- INSULIN and not LDL.
So, diabetes management should all be focused on lowering the residual insulin in blood. Can drugs lower it? NOT much -- yes not even 2 gm Metformin a day can help to extent that LCHF diet does. So, only thing that works is cutting down CARBS drastically and replacing it with Good fat. This is where LCHF diet works-and-wins hands down.
Type 2 starts with elevated insulin levels in blood and is the common enemy for diabetes (becomes a progressive disorder as the ENEMY is considered a FRIEND by mainstream), obesity, CVD/CHD. Get your fasting insulin down to lowermost value of the range as first step. That would also impact PPBS insulin levels.
So, DUMP the HORRIBLE HIGH CARB LOW FAT nonsensical diet being peddled as HEALTHY & Balanced. Mainstream doesn't even look at it as part of diagnostic variable just because they know that their so called HEALTHY Diet will be EXPOSED.
BTW, Ivor Cummins is also a LCHF Buff.
