In a recent study, it was found that a very low carbohydrate (ketogenic) diet dramatically improved blood sugar makers and reduced medication use. After 1-year of following participants, the researchers found:
- Significant weight loss
- A reduced hemoglobin A1C, the marker of blood sugar regulation.
- 94% reduced blood sugar medications
- Liver health improved
- The diet was well tolerated.
These are exciting findings and reveal that diet really can be medicine!
