What Do You Know About Diabetes? What Don’t You Know?


Presented to GlaxoSmithKline (Parsippany, New Jersey), November 15, 2005.


  • No rocket science, no brain surgery: a healthy weight and active body is the best insurance against developing type 2 diabetes.
  • Diet is the foundation for diabetes self-management, with synergistic influences from both exercise and prescribed medications (when needed).
  • 95% of caring for diabetes is up to the individual who has it. Therefore, a person with diabetes has the choice to control it — or not. A person who may be predisposed to diabetes also can choose to help prevent its onset.

Gushers vs Tricklers

"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
