Diabetes Myths, Diabetes myths abound, from the idea that eating too much sugar causes the disease to the mistaken assumption that it is necessary to give up all your favorite foods in order to follow a diabetes diet. WebMD offers a list of ten common myths about diabetes and nutrition.

Myth 1: Eating too much sugar causes diabetes. In fact, the causes of diabetes are not fully known. Diabetes occurs when something causes your body to properly process the foods you eat. Myth 2: diabetes diets have too many rules to follow. While planning and some simple changes are often necessary, the rules are not as strict as you might think.

Myth 3: Carbohydrates are the enemy. Carbohydrates are actually the basis of a healthy diet with diabetes or any other diet for that matter. Because they affect blood sugar levels in the blood, often must be supervised by people with diabetes. However, they contain a number of essential elements of the diet of any person. Myth 4: Protein is better than carbs for diabetes.
Too much protein can cause problems for people with diabetes. A typical diabetes diet should consist of protein 15% to 20%.
