New Nice guidance for Diabetes December 2015
As a matter of interest, has your doctor, nurse or health care assistant read the new NICE diabetes guidance December 2015?
Maybe they have seen the subtle but important changes, but maybe they have been far too busy to get round to reading them. After all, in my time as a GP I had a year in which there were 400 targets. In that year my good friend in ICI had three.
In case they are too busy to look it up, here is the award winning GP Dr David Unwin’s talk on low carbohydrate ways of living:
Or the extracts from his slide on the NICE changes:
1.3.3 “encourage high fibre low glycaemic index sources of carbohydrate” so that means porridge, bread, pasta and rice are out, and so is the Eatwell plate
and 1.6.6 individualise recommendations for carbohydrate and alcohol- which frees practitioners from having to stick to the Eatwell plate
