New Study: Keto Beats Low-Calorie Diet for Treating Type 2 Diabetes

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

Can it be a good idea to follow a ketogenic diet, rather than a conventional low-calorie diet, when treating type 2 diabetes? The result from a new intervention study once again suggests that the answer is a definite yes:

Nutrition & Diabetes: Short-Term Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of A Very Low-Calorie-Ketogenic Diet Interventional Weight Loss Program Versus Hypocaloric Diet in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

The study found that weight loss and a reduced waist circumference were significantly greater in the ketogenic group, and blood glucose was also significantly improved.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to exchange the current treatment for one that not only makes perfect sense, but that's also proven to be more effective?
