Low-carbohydrate diet in type 2 diabetes

Can a low carb diet be beneficial to people suffering
from diabetes?

According to a recent study published in "Nutrition &
Metabolism" a low carb diet plan can definitely in
maintaining glycemic control and body weight.

"Low-carbohydrate diets in the management of obese
patients with type 2 diabetes seem intuitively attractive
due to their potent antihyperglycemic effect. We
previously reported that a 20% carbohydrate diet
was significantly superior to a 55–60%
carbohydrate diet with regard to bodyweight
and glycemic control in 2 non-randomised groups
of obese diabetes patients observed closely over 6 months. "

This study concluded that "Advice on a 20 % carbohydrate
diet with some caloric restriction to obese patients with
type 2 diabetes has lasting effect on bodyweight and
glycemic control."

So a low carb diet is healthier in MANY aspects. My
thinking is that if it helps those who already suffer
from diabetes it's probably going to help prevent
many from acquiring the disease in the first place!
