Interestingly, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is selling to healthcare providers Low Carbohydrate and Very Low Carbohydrate Eating Patterns in Adults with Diabetes: A Guide for Health Care Providers
The American Diabetes Association has identified low-carbohydrate (LC) and very low-carbohydrate (VLC) eating patterns as options that can improve outcomes in adults with type 2 diabetes. This 28-page guide was designed to assist registered dietitians, certified diabetes care & education specialists, and other health care practitioners in assessing the appropriateness of a LC or VLC intervention for their patients. Additionally, it provides strategies and sample meal plans for implementing a LC or VLC eating pattern as an evidence-based intervention in adult with type 2 diabetes.
In my world, “very low-carbohydrate” means ketogenic.
