I don't think I will EVER understand the "logic" of the medical community.
My father is a diabetic and every morning they give him orange juice and chocolate milk as part of his breakfast. NOT Glucerna, regular chocolate milk. An hour or two later, they come in and check his blood sugar, find it's high--big shock--then give him insulin to drive it back down. Every time I see him at supper he has a ton of mashed potatoes or pasta. Lather, rinse, repeat ALL DAY LONG. I do not understand this stupidity.
Why don't they just give him a damn box of candy and let him have at it?
