Low-carbohydrate diet improved HbA1c, weight loss in diabetes | Endocrinology


June 28, 2013

CHICAGO Compared with a low-fat, calorie-restricted diet, a low-carbohydrate diet reduced HbA1c and resulted in twice as much weight loss in patients with diabetes, study results presented at the ADA Scientific Sessions suggest.

... And presented at an ADA conference? Well blow me down. Now I wonder what the ADA's gonna do with it.
... Thinking I should be on the board of the ADA. Now then we'd see some real changes.

A low carb diet unrestricted vs. a very restricted low calorie diet with such an overwhelming beneficial difference. Is just criminal not telling diabetics that low carbohydrates should be their default diet. The idea that you should not seek the major short-term benefits of LCHF for people with diabetes because of a conjectural long-term risk with fats that hasn’t been demonstrated is a travesty and just doesn’t make sense.

“Overall, mean HbA1c decreased –0.02% in the low-fat, low-calorie group and –0.59% in the low-carbohydrate group (P=.04 comparing groups). Thirteen percent of participants in the low-carbohydrate diet group reached an HbA1c of less than 5.7% vs. none in the low-fat, low-calorie group, according to the study abstract. The use of oral diabetes medication was reduced or discontinued by 11% of participants in the low-fat, low-calorie diet group vs. 47% in the low-carbohydrate group. Although calories were not restricted, those on the low-carbohydrate diet lost twice as much weight compared with those on the low-fat, low-calorie diet. Researchers said that blood lipid levels did not worsen in the low-carbohydrate group, despite the high fat content of carbohydrates.”

This sentence isn't really making a whole lot of sense to me; am I missing something?

But I agree that this is more evidence that the low-fat recommendation doesn't fly for diabetics. Let's hope the ADA says something about this study.

I'm guessing the proof reader missed an obvious error.
