Sweet desserts for diabetics? It's not joke.The latest guidelines say that people with diabetes do not have toavoid simple sugars. They can be integrated into individualized mealplans.However, sucrose and sugary foods need to be exchanged with other foodsand simply added to a meal plan, say Ann Gallagher, a registered dietitianand a member of the board of directors of the American DiabetesAssociation.In diabetes, a disease that affects 14 million Americans, the body doesnot produce or properly respond to insulin, a necessary hormone. If notcontrolled by diet and/or insulin injections, this results in high bloodsugar, which can lead to blindness, kidney disease, heart disease andamputations.Diabetes is the fourth-leading cause of death in the United States.For most of the century, it was widely believed that the dietarytreatment of diabetes required a person to replace simple sugars withcomplex starches such as potatoes or cereals, Gallagher says. Many peoplestill think that eating too much sugar causes diabetes, she says. But themost common form of diabetes call adult-onset -- most ofter results frombeing overweight.There is little scientific evidence that sugars - such as sucrose,fructose, corn sweeteners, fruit juices, honey, molasses, destrose andmaltose - aggravate high blood sugar any more than starches do. It's thetotal amount of carbohydrates that affects blood sugar after a meal,Gallagher says.Individuals with a diabetic condition now can use monitoring and cancustomize their meal plans, often in consultation with a registereddietian, to include a balance of foods in line with the USDA.Those who are obese or who have high cholesterol, high blood pressureor other conditions must take other precautions to control thoseconditions, Gallagher says.The new diabetic guidelines replace 1986 recommendations, which advisedthat 12 percent to 20 percent of calories should come from protein, lessthat 30 percent from fat and only up to 60 percent from carbohydrates. Thenew guideline recommend that 10 percent to 20 percent of calories come fromprotein but establish no fat and carbohydrate percentages.People with normal levels of cholesterol and triglycerides and whomaintain normal weight can follow mainstrem guidelines of not more that 30percent of calories from fat (10 percent or less from saturated fat)Source: The San Diego Union-Tribune, June 23, 1994 By Steven Pratt Broughtto you and yours via Nancy O'Brion and Her Meal Master
