DietDoctor-sivusto kertoo uudesta tutkimuksesta New study falsely claims low-carb worsens diabetes
European Journal of Nutrition: Lower carbohydrate and higher fat intakes are associated with higher hemoglobin A1c: findings from the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey 2008–2016
Lower carbohydrate and higher fat intakes were associated with higher HbA1c and greater odds of having diabetes. These data do not support low(er) carbohydrate diets for diabetes prevention.
Absolutely not. The new trial is an observational trial of individuals with a mean carbohydrate intake of 48%, with fat averaging 35%. The authors crunched the data and noted that for every 5% decrease in carbs or increase in fat, there was a 12-17% increased risk of diabetes.
Let’s think about that for a moment. Most reputable low-carb studies allow less than 50 grams of carbs per day, and keto diet studies typically allow less than 20 grams per day. That’s at most 10% of calories from carbs. But this study started at 48%, which would equate to about 240 grams of carbs each day!! These aren’t even on the same planet let alone in the same ball park.
