Researchers Recommend Carb Restriction as Primary Method of Diabetes Control

Researchers recommend carb restriction as primary method of diabetes control:
  • A multinational team of researchers has put forward a comprehensive case for recommending dietary carbohydrate restriction as the default intervention in managing diabetes mellitus.

    The critical review, which has been published online by the Nutrition Journal, presents 12 points to support the use of a low carbohydrate diet in people with type 2 and type 1 diabetes. In people with type 2 diabetes, the review recommends a low carbohydrate diet as the first intervention. In type 1 diabetes, a low carb diet is advised as the default diet in addition to taking insulin.
You have to appreciate this simply from the positon of a non-pharmacological, medicinal intervention!
