High-fat diet lowered blood sugar and improved blood lipids in diabetics

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Interesting article here:

"People with Type 2 diabetes are usually advised to keep a low-fat diet. Now, a study at Linköping University shows that food with a lot of fat and few carbohydrates could have a better effect on blood sugar levels and blood lipids."

This is just one study, and it won't change anything. But I'm glad to see a clinical trial that replicates and confirms the changes I've seen in my own body and blood sugar/cholesterol levels since I've been eating a LCHF diet. I'm thinking about sending this to my doctor.

    I haven't understood why doctors recommend low carb diets for diabetes, but haven't caught on that recommending low carb in non-diabetics also may prevent it. I know that if I had continued my high carb, low fat trend, I was setting myself up for diabetes. I came to the research on my own, and I feel very strongly that I dodged a bullet here.

    It's good to see it becoming less and less "radical" all the time. It will still be 20 years before the fat-phobia phases out (it took at least that long for it to phase in).

    As to gallbladder, even that generally improves with high fat low carb:
