Very low carbohydrate ‘diet’ results in more weight loss, better blood glucose control and less medication in a 3 month trial.
The patients were on oral medications to control their diabetes and 2 groups were compared. On egroup had the standard American Diabetes Association diet and the other went very low carb into nutritional ketosis.
There was a greater weight loss in the very low carb group and 44% reduced their medication in comparison to 11% in the standard ADA diet.
Both groups felt they were having some input into their outcomes by dietary control. That’s good.
