Diabetes understanding gone wrong...

The website I posted above is a list of the best diets for diabetes from MSN.  Atkins isn't mentioned on the top 5, but when you Go to the U.S. News & World Report link on the page to see the top 20 diabetes diet plans, it shows atkins is #18!  
"One expert noted that diets like Atkins that are high in saturated fat can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes." 
Soo inaccurate!  (FYI: saturated fat is actually good for you!) 
Isn't diabetes a malfunction in insulin sensitivity? What causes insulin to be released? Glucose!!
How does saturated fat have anything to do with insulin response?
It seems like the diets that 'win' over atkins are ones that are over indulgent in carbs/sugar and some have no meat at all!  Seems like they are trying to recruit more people for diabetes and not cure people who currently have it. 
Someday, maybe atkins will be at the top of the list...

If you are reading this and you have diabetes, STOP, go to and start a new way of eating.
