So there's goodness-knows how many people on this forum alone, more or less all saying the NHS (NICE) guidelines are wrong in that: - T2's need access to BG testing facilities - Obesity doesn't specifically cause diabetes -Metformin is miserable - Carbs are the enemy. - The Eatwell Plate is wrong. - NHS diabetes education is outdated. There seems to be no standard approach when it comes to how the NHS treats patients; some are offered education and some are not. Some are given meters (but not test strips) some are not. Some are given counselling and information and some are not. All this backed by significant evidence to boot. Is there a lobbying arm somewhere that is pushing the DoH to look again at diabetes management in the UK? To reconsider recent research and studies and at least change the guidance on the NHS website so that low-carb diets aren't dismissed as faddy and alternative? Almost without exception, we've all learned that the NHS isn't serving our needs. But what's being done about it?
