Low Carb Linked to Diabetes

Researchers from Harvard University found that low-carb dieters were more likely to have type 2 diabetes.

Low-carb diets high in saturated fat and animal protein could put one at a higher risk to develop type 2 diabetes, according to researchers at Harvard University. Researchers took the health information of about 40,000 men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, which began in 1986, and studied 20 years of follow-up. Men following a low-carb diet high in animal protein and fat were 75 percent more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who ate moderately, and men eating low-carb while eating vegetable protein and fat were not at a higher risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 26 million Americans have diabetes, and an estimated 79 million have prediabetes.
