A low-carb diet works effectively in tackling type-1 and type-2 diabetes, a new research by the University of Alabama at Birmingham suggests.
Researchers gave 12 points of evidence showing that diabetics should first switch to low-carbohydrate diets to treat type-2 diabetes. This diet should be followed along with insulin in those with type-1 diabetes.
According to Barbara Gower, Ph.D., professor and vice chair for research in the UAB Department of Nutrition Sciences, diabetes is a disease of carbohydrate intolerance and reducing carbohydrates is the obvious treatment.
