  1. I see this as an encouragement for people with diabetes not to worry about eating sugar and carbs. I consider this an absolutely irresponsible statement!
    We probably can consider that it is not realistic trying to completely eliminate sugar and carbs, but a strong effort is recommended and should be made to reduce its intake to a minimum.
