Good to hear there are some ethically concerned diabetics here :)
I was diagnosed a few days ago. I don't think veganism makes much of a difference. I eat a bit more carbs than non-vegans, but insulin takes care of that. I don't worry about keeping my carbs low as much as balancing my carb:unit ratio
I've been vegan for two years. I suppose you could say that I follow it religiously, but the definition of veganism is that it is followed religiously. Vegans don't sometimes eat animal products.
You guys make some interesting comments on respecting other people's food choices. I never eat animal products even if they are served to me. I think it's a two way respect. I don't tell others how to eat, and they don't expect me to eat what they want me to eat.
This forum looks really quiet, but if any of you want advice about veganism, I can help. As I've only had diabetes for a few days, I don't know much about that, but I know a good deal about general nutrition :)
Are all of you American?
