Here’s some interesting information from a doctor who believes those with type 2 diabetes should ignore American Diabetes Association’s dietary advice and opt for a healthy low carb, high fat diet. Dr. Sarah Hallberg’s evidence comes from a study her clinic performed, where 50 people with type 2 diabetes were treated with her recommended low-carb high-fat diet. She treated another 50 patients with ADA guidelines.
After six months, the study concluded that the patients treated with Hallberg’s recommended diet were able to decrease their insulin by nearly 500 units a day, on average. Those in the ADA group, however, had to boost their insulin by an average of 350 units a day.
