The End of Diabetes eBook by Joel Fuhrman PDF download free. When it comes to Diabetes and Weight management, there have been so many different messages that go out to the public, it makes it very difficult to understand the latest research, and what is actually good for you. Today, we will look at some of the recent relevant articles that have appeared globally. HJ van Wyk et al published an article in Diabetic Medicine (10/2015) titled ”A critical review of low carbohydrate diets in people with Type 2 Diabetes”. The study looked at 9 meta-analyses of 153 studies. There was data to suggest more weight loss in low carbohydrate diets, but no difference in other metabolic markers, including glycaemic control, when compared to high carbohydrate diets. This is important for diabetic patients to understand – changing to a low carb diet may assist in different ways, but it is unlikely have a DIRECT impact on your diabetes markers when compared with high carb diets. Another article published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology looked at the effectiveness of low fat diets for weight loss, when compared to other diets. Researchers analysed the results of 53 studies, and found that low fat diets led to more weight loss only when compared to no diet at all. This data is comforting in a way, as there is more than one diet which would lead to weight loss. So whether you want to follow Atkins, Banting, Vegan, Paleo or Mediterranean diets – as long as you are on a diet, you should be on a good path. Herbal remedies are a largely unreported treatment option. Recently, an article appeared in the Journal of Diabetes (10/2015), looking into the effects of cinnamon and whortleberry on blood glucose control, lipid profile and body mass index in type 2 diabetes patients. Cinnamon and whortleberry used individually lead to significant reduction in some biochemical variables in type 2 diabetic mellitus such as control of glycemic status, insulin sensitivity and body mass index. The results suggest that adjuvant therapy such as herbal medicine has significant effects on blood glucose control in type 2 diabetes mellitus but it needs more evidence for routine use. I have many patients that request Exenatide (Byetta in South Africa) and its effect on obesity. In South Africa, it is registered for use as add-on anti-diabetic therapy. Based on the results, the study conclude that in obese or overweight participants without diabetes Exenatide could significantly diminish body weight, and might be a safe alternative GLP–1 receptor agonist for weight control in such patients. Liraglutide ( Victoza) is probably more used than Byetta, from what I can gather.
