New Study Suggests Low Carb Diet Can Lead To Remission For Type 2 Diabetes Patients

A new study suggests that people with type 2 diabetes may achieve remission by following a low carbohydrate diet. 

According to Fox News, the study published this week in The BMJ found that if people living with type 2 diabetes followed a low-carb diet for six months, there were higher remission rates.

A low-carb diet is defined as deriving less than 26% of your daily calories from carbohydrates. More than 1,300 people with the metabolic disease participated in the study, and researchers found that those who strictly adhered to the diet achieved a greater remission rate than those who did not. 

Aside from the possibility of coming off insulin, other benefits to the low-carb diet included weight loss and healthier body fat concentrations. 

According to the New York Post, the benefits of the diet began to plateau after a year. The study suggests that more research is needed to determining strictly how low-carb diets can be implemented to relieve diabetic symptoms.
