I respectfully disagree with you and am quite honestly surprised at the tone of your note.
I have Type 1.5 diabetes, which, as you may know, shares most of the same characteristics as Type 1. For all intents and purposes I consider myself a Type 1. My parents are both Type 2s, so I have a very firm grasp on the differences as well as some of the things that people with both types have in common, such as the need to monitor the food we eat.
The reason I posted this specific article is because it provides nutritional information for restaurants to help people, especially people on the go, gain access to info in order to make better decisions. This specific product that was released is geared to Type 2s only because the guy who invented it is Type 2 and only knows about Type 2s. However, I checked it out and thought the info may also be useful to people with Type 1. Type 1.5, Pre Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes. While its true that most fast food restaurants sell unhealthy food, not all chain restaurants are fast food restaurants.
And, if you read the post, I simply asked what are people's favorite "Diabetes friendly" restaurants? News is all about localizing it for a specific audience. I thought I had done that. If you read the article, you would notice I clearly stated that while it is marketed to people with Type 2, it may be useful to people with other forms of the disease because it contains nutritional information about food on the different menus. Honestly, I don't see the problem with it and think some people in this forum may see the value in a free application like this.
As for your comment about "sugars," don't you think you are being a little picky? Carbs do eventually turn to sugars and managing blood sugar levels is a part of everyday life for for me and most people with Type 1 diabetes. While it is true that carbs are the bigger danger, just because we can doesn't mean we should eat foods high in sugar on a regular basis. You may be aware of the alarming trend of people with Type 1 diabetes also becoming "insulin resistant" because they are using so much insulin to compensate for a poor diet.
You know, I am always open to receiving feedback and listening to the opinions of others, but I was a bit put off by your note. I started a free news service for people with diabetes to help them stay on top of the news without having to dedicate much time to screening all the different publications. Yes, I report on news about all types of diabetes but generally only post news relevant to Type 1 here. I generally make 3 posts a week in this forum and am trying to do some good;. This post wasn't a perfect fit, but I thought some people would find it interesting.
And, you always have the option of ignoring posts that you do not like.
