Study Concludes That Low-Carb Diet Is Best For Diabetics

August 7, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes would benefit greatly from following a diet that is low in carbohydrates, according to a new U.S. study. The researchers said low-fat diets do not improve obesity, cardiovascular risk or general health, and there have been persistent reports of serious side effects of commonly prescribed diabetes medications. The research found that: caloric increases linked to type 1 and type 2 diabetes have been due almost entirely to increased carbohydrate consumption; carb restriction works the best at decreasing blood glucose levels; and the benefits of carb restriction do not require weight loss – but no dietary intervention works better for losing weight.
