TABLE 2: Common carbohydrate foods and their glyceamic
Eating foods, which have a low or moderate glyceamic

Chelsee's pre-beach rules 1 Ditch white carbs: Swap high GI (glyceamic

Many patients can be successfully treated with oral sulphonylureas rather than insulin.16 Sulphonylureas have affinity to SUR1 and stimulate insulin secretion by an ATP-independent mechanism and can successfully replace insulin therapy to achieve a better metabolic control.9 The effectiveness of oral sulfonylurea in improving glyceamic
control of diabetic patients due to KCNJ11 mutations after transfer from insulin therapy has been confirmed by many reports16 but a molecular diagnosis is required before the use of sulfonylurea therapy in neonatal diabetes is considered.17
