Does sugar cause diabetes? To avoid high blood sugar it’s common among people with diabetes to fret about sugary foods and fruits altogether. The sugar situation is understandably confusing to people because “sugar” is used as a blanket term. But it’s time to refresh the mind with some previous knowledge. There are different types of sugar with different biological effects in the body.
Here’s what Dr. Michelle McMacken talks about to help clear the confusion:
– The sugar in your blood and the sugar in your food
– The sugar that increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes
– Added sugars vs natural sugars
– Is fructose bad for you? What happens when you take in pure fructose?
Dr. Michelle McMacken is a board-certified internal medicine physician and an assistant professor of medicine at the NYU School of Medicine. She’s an honors graduate of Yale University and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. She has more than 10 years of experience practicing primary care, directing a medical weight loss program, and teaching doctors in training at Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City. Dr. McMacken has written articles for Forks Over Knives, including one called Seven Things that Happen to You When You Stop Eating Meat that has been shared more than 250,000 times.
