Diabetes may be controlled...even VERY well controlled...but you STILL and always have diabetes. The minute you revert to the "old ways"....your numbers will continue to rise.
Controlling your blood sugars does not equate a cure. As well, balancing your bg via dietary intake necessitates more than carbs!
There is NO cure for diabetes...bringing your blood sugars down does not mean you are cured!!! It is a VERY serious and inaccurate assumption.
I realize this is a very old post, and that Jenny, who I respect enormously, hasn't been active on TuD for quite awhile, but since this popped back up to view I just want to say that yes, traditional vegetarian diets are very high in carbs, but it is possible to be a vegetarian and eat diabetes friendly foods. So to say "vegetarian diets are the worst possible diet for people with diabetes" is a definite over-generalization. I'm a vegetarian and eat a very healthy. varied and delicious diet!
