Why healthy food can reduce the risk of diabetes
More than one-third of people with type 1 diabetes in Japan have low carbohydrate diets that reduce their intake of sugar, according to a new study published in the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology.
The study found that those with diabetes who took a healthy diet reduced their risk of developing diabetes by 33 percent compared to those with low carbohydrate diet.
Researchers at the University of Tsukuba in Japan found that individuals with type 2 diabetes who consumed a healthy, low-carb diet had an 81 percent lower risk of having diabetes than individuals who did not.
The researchers also found that people with diabetes had lower levels of circulating blood sugar, which was related to lower blood sugar.
Infectious diseases are linked to diabetes.
In the United States, more than 1 in 5 adults have type 1 and 2 diabetes.
About 14 percent of people in the U.S. have diabetes.
More:In the study, researchers analyzed data from nearly 1.2 million people with total diabetes in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Germany.
They followed participants for more than three years and measured their blood sugar levels, insulin levels, and body weight and blood pressure.
The participants in the study were followed for three years.
They also took blood pressure measurements and had their blood drawn and tested for antibodies to the beta-1-glucuronidase enzyme.
A total of 906 participants were included in the analysis.
People with diabetes were more likely to be male and white.
The participants were between 25 and 54 years old, had a BMI of 30 or more, and had a waist circumference of 30 centimeters or more.
About half of the participants were men and half were women.
About 2 percent had type 2.
The average age of the people in this study was 64.4 years.
About one-quarter had a family history of diabetes.
The people in Japan who took the healthy diet had a lower risk for developing diabetes than the participants in countries with higher rates of diabetes, including the United states, Germany, the Netherlands and Canada.
