New Dietary Advice for Type 2 Diabetes? Nearly

 

 

Comment:

Scientists have come up with a new plan for managing type 2 diabetes. In a move away from the traditional advice of smaller and regular meals researchers in Prague are now suggesting that eating just 2 (breakfast and lunch) normal sized meals per day could be more effective in the management of type 2 diabetes. 

The study used volunteers who followed one of the two regimes, those who followed the new 2 meal plan lost more weight and had larger drops in blood sugar than their counterparts on the smaller more frequent meal plan. 

Of the 2.9 million people in the UK with diabetes, 90% of them have type 2 diabetes meaning this new research is highly relevant for many people nationwide. 

Although this research is positive, Diabetes UK says more research needs to be carried out on a longer time scale and with more people before changes are to be made to the dietary advice given to people with type 2 diabetes.
