Long-term health and safety effects of Very Low Carbohydrate Diets for Type 2 Diabetes Management:
Current clinical practice guidelines for type 2 diabetes management advocate a diet low in fat and high in unrefined carbohydrates. However, this recommendation has been questioned following advancements in understanding that carbohydrate restriction and higher intakes of protein and unsaturated fat improve blood glucose control and cardiovascular disease risk.
This presentation will discuss the findings of a large, long-term, well-controlled, randomized controlled clinical study comparing the effects of either a traditional high-carbohydrate diet or a very-low-carbohydrate, high-unsaturated-fat diet while participating in a structured exercise program on multiple health outcomes, including glycemic control, cardiovascular disease risk, renal function, and mental wellbeing and performance.
Findings indicate that independent of any change in weight, the blood glucose profile improves substantially in the very-low-carbohydrate group. The diet is well tolerated and the need for medication is also reduced to a greater extent than the traditional high-carbohydrate dietary approach.
