Type 2 diabetes can be slowed down with a low-carb diet


Australia's National Science Agency CSIROcontributed to a new international study and proved that consumption of reduced carbohydrates can potentially lead to remission of type 2 diabetes. However, the results of the study were ambiguous, as a result of a long-term diet, the effectiveness of remission decreases. Meanwhile, in the short term, the use of the technique for therapeutic purposes can give good results.

Reducing the intake of carbohydrates into the bodypatients suffering from type 2 diabetes, have already been implemented in the preparation of a variety of diets, including plant, low-energy and "hungry". To obtain the effect of reducing the amount of carbohydrates, it is necessary to draw up a diet in the diet of which the daily intake of carbohydrates does not exceed 130 grams. Another technique provides for reducing the intake of energy from carbohydrates to 25% of the total amount of 2000 kcal per day, necessary for a person who is not engaged in hard physical labor. The decrease in hunger with such diets is compensated by the consumption of low-fat foods.

The CSIRO study lasted six months andcovered 1357 patients with type 2 diabetes. Comprehensive analysis of various data allowed scientists to declare an increase in the number of cases of remission of the disease by 32%. At the same time, extending the diet for a year led to a decrease in the positive effect of the diet.

According to the results of the study, Australian scientistshave determined that a low-carb diet is most effective in the short term, and that its implementation does not require much effort, is intuitive and easy to implement.
