Day after day we tell our at-risk patients to lower their carbohydrate consumption to help avoid diabetes. Our thought process is to reduce the workload on the pancreas and decrease insulin resistance. However, this may not be the most important reason to reduce carbohydrates. Our intern, Sandra Zaki, PharmD Candidate, Florida A&M University, has an important study on how the Dietary Inflammatory Index could be a bigger factor, and why carbohydrate management is so important.
