Is a diabetic diet with lots of low g. I. Foods generally healthy for anyone even if you aren't diabetic?
If cancer is a metabolic disease, why are we feeding children w/ DIPG lots of carbs & sugars...limited glucose should be helpful preventing growth?
Be discerning: Cancer is not a "metabolic disease" as represented on websites like the one you have been reading. It's the result of accumulated genetic mutations. You're not going to "limit glucose" in any case -- anything you eat gets turned into this, as it's the key fuel in your body. I trust you'll have the common sense to recognize when a website is offering complete disinformation -- many cancer sites do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can eating chapathi only (as a dietary food) good for blood sugar patients? Is rice bad for blood sugar?
Carbohydrates: Eaten alone, chapathi and rice may cause your blood sugar to rise rapidly. Insulin doses and pancreatic response may not be able to keep up. If you want to eat those foods, adding protein, non-starchy (fibrous) vegetables, and healthy fat will help your system deal with the carbohydrate more gradually. Chapathi is a little more nutrient-dense than rice, though. http://tinyurl.com/mxm8qh3. ...Read more

Is all sugar bad? E.g. Sugar in fresh fruit, or sugar in raw honey. Liver load in mind not so much weight loss. How much a day including from fruit ?
Low-glycemic fruitOK: Good question. Some fruit has much more sugar than others. Small fruits where you eat the peel have many health benefits (berries, cherries, grapes, apples) & don't increase blood sugar much, but tropical fruits/melons should be limited. Honey in moderation also has health benefits-as a sweetener better than sugar but don't eat for health! See http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/264667.php ...Read more
