Default Ketogenic diet improves HbA1c and blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes

Ketogenic diet improves HbA1c and blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes

Following a ketogenic diet lowers blood glucose and HbA1c levels in people with type 2 diabetes, new research shows.

A short-term study by Indian researchers found that the diet's benefits led to "great improvements" in symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes.

Ketogenic diets are very low in carbohydrate, with a higher proportion of energy coming from fat and protein. Previous studies have reported the diet's benefits for diabetes, with a 12-month trial last year indicating improved weight loss and blood glucose control among people with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes.

The new study, led by Dr Lakshmi Prasanna Angati from CARE Hospitals in Visakhapatnam, tracked the progress of 115 people with type 2 diabetes following a keto diet for three months.

Participants restricted their carbohydrate intake to a maximum of 20 grams per day while increasing consumption of fat and maintaining a modest protein intake.

At the start of the study, the mean blood glucose and HbA1c levels of those taking part were 9.4 mmol/L (169 mg/dL) and 61.7 mmol/mol (7.8%), respectively.

These levels dropped markedly in 110 of the participants by the end of the three-month trial, to 7.6 mmol/L (137 mg/dL) and 46.4 mmol/mol (6.4%), respectively.

Dr Angati said: "The ketogenic diet over three months led to a remarkable reduction in HbA1c levels and to great improvements in symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes.

"This is an especially important finding for diabetes patients in India because with the Indian diet people eat carbohydrates morning, noon, and night, and we want to encourage and counsel people to change these dietary habits."

The data was presented at the annual American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) meeting in California this week.

Sounds just like SAD in the U.S.

I think it shows the limitations of agriculture. Plant-based nutrition (as I know from reading Dr. Ede) has all kinds of barriers to absorption built into it. The number from the lab turns out to be only 10% bio-available in the end.

Add in the way carbs alone trigger hunger through various methods, and highly agrarian carb-based diets turn into a weapon of disease. Modern methods ensure these "traditional diets", when offered in even more processed ways, are like mainlining a drug right to the vein.

what if there was a small group of people who were aware of ways to chronic disease abatement and prevention that goes well beyond the accepted standard of care guidelines that doctors are hobbled with and little by little the press becomes aware of these lifestyle tweaks that can improve health and longevity - but nobody listened to them because of their unworthy track record?

It's tough to get the credibility required to gain entry into the "club."

Honestly, I think the crisis is much worse there. I am continually shocked by it.

I think it's worse than the SAD because a lot of them don't eat meat at all so it's mostly ALL carbs. Not to be critical but a lot of the Indian women I see are very chubby.

It's popular to make fun of how fat Americans are, but there are diabetes epidemics in India, China and Saudi Arabia (which also has a growing obesity problem). It's essentially become a harbinger of economic growth: With economic growth comes new dietary habits, including lots of junk food and sugar, combined with the popular "low fat" advice from doctors.

Dr Atkins predicted this worldwide obesity epidemic.

When food is primarily all carbs via grains, and starvation is limited, the body can only get fat.

It seems that carbs are cheap and processed food has a high-profit margin. That's reflected in all the advertising for processed 'foods'.

And the corporations are addicted to the abundant profit: 5 cents of grain which costs $5 a box at the supermarket. And the sugar in it is subsidized by the US government.

Sweet. Literally. And with two addictive substances combined!
