Protein Controversies in Diabetes: debunking myths


Found this article, although published in 2000. Interesting and challenges what I was taught.


Recent research: do night snacks decrease hypoglycemia? Does protein help?

This article is fascinating, and debunks a lot of misconceptions: eye opening! Thanks for linking to it!


I like this one. Too bad a lot of the graphics are no longer working.


I like the summary statement:


I am adding the figures missing from the paper below. This way we can all have the proper references when reading it.

  • Figure 1

  • Figure 2

  • Figure 3


The first graph shows the protein-only ingestion with barely any increase, and in fact shows a decrease in BG. That certainly isn’t how protein effects me! I definitely get a rise, usually several hours later.
