Low-Carb Diet More Beneficial To Type 2 Diabetics

May 8, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A two-year Swedish study of the impact of reducing dietary carbs or fat on type 2 diabetics has found that the low-carb diet had the more positive effect. The clinical trial involving 61 patients who ate either a low-fat or low-carb diet found that only the patients whose diet was low in carbohydrates saw reduced levels of inflammation. Both groups lost about the same amount of weight. Patients with type 2 diabetes experience higher levels of inflammation which is believed to contribute to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and other complications.
