8 Common Diabetes Myths Busted
For all that we know about diabetes, there’s still a lot of misinformation. Here are some of the most common myths about diabetes—along with information you can rely on.
Myth # 1: Once you start taking diabetes medicine, you can never stop.
Fact: There are temporary conditions such as surgery that cause elevated glucose levels and require insulin. But after surgery, with continued emphasis on healthy eating habits and regular physical activity, glucose levels may be controlled without medication.
Myth #2: If you love white bread, potatoes, and pasta, you’re out of luck. White foods are off-limits if you have diabetes.
