This study investigated the effects of a low-fat/high-carbohydrate diet on various diabetes risk markers in patients with disbetes.
The patients were placed on diets for 6 weeks containing either:
- 55% carbohydrate, 30% fat, and 15% protein (high carbohydrate diet)
- 40% CHO, 45% fat, and 15% protein (higher fat diet)
The study found:
- Those on the high carbohydrate diet had 6% higher blood sugar levels compared to those on the higher fat diet.
- Those on the high carbohydrate diet had 16% higher insulin levels compared to those on the higher fat diet.
- Those on the high carbohydrate diet had 33% higher triglyceride levels compared to those on the higher fat diet.
The study demonstrated how a low fat/high carbohydrate diet leads to a rise in blood sugar, insulin and triglycerides.
