Help support the largest study ever of how an LCHF diet affects type 2 diabetes


This article is a guest post from Ann Fernholm, PhD, founder of The Dietary Science Foundation. At Diet Doctor we strongly believes in the importance of creating better nutritional science and we are happy to share her content with our readers.

Please note that Diet Doctor does not have a fiscal relation with The Dietary Science Foundation. We simply believes in their theme and their purpose.

We founded the Dietary Science Foundation five years ago. Now one of our dreams has come true: contributing to the world’s biggest study of how an LCHF diet can affect type 2 diabetes.

Skandia, a Swedish insurance company, is putting EUR 450,000 into the study, while the Dietary Science Foundation will devote EUR 400,000- but we need your help!

All over the world, thousands and thousands of people report that their own health improves on an LCHF diet- numerous find that the force slips apart, their tummy sufferings disappear and people with type 2 diabetes often have normal blood sugar degrees and can come off their prescription.

But doctors and researchers still claim that an LCHF diet is dangerous. There are many fears, but the main dwell is that it feigns blood cholesterol.

This controversy about LCHF leads to countless parties, who would otherwise benefit not coming that improve. They are admonished against a medicine that have been able to utter them healthful or symptom-free. Instead, the issue is prescribed medications: two capsules for blood sugar, three for blood pressure, one for cholesterol and then one for mental health.

Who is right? We’ll make science decide

Frustration over the general neglect of dietary discipline( many studies are too small and short-term to lead the way to a new paradigm ), led to us founding the Dietary Science Foundation five years ago. We are a non-profit organization that obtains coin for high-quality research.

Thanks to all our excellent monthly donors, corporate spouses and boosters, we have been able to contribute to the world’s biggest study of dietary affect on IBS and type 1 diabetes. We have also supported excellent study on obesity and fatty liver.

All these studies are happening now. While we await their conclusions, we are aiming even higher: contributing to the world’s largest-ever study of LCHF and form 2 diabetes. And this is where we need you!

Help us patronage a real game changer

The Swedish insurance company Skandia( three cheers !) has decided to support the project with a total of EUR 450,000 and our technical advisory board has decided to invest EUR 400,000. One-third of this will come from what we compiled last year. The remaining two-thirds( approximately EUR 266,000) is still needed. So , now we’re asking for your support for this vital study!

Previously, most of the money we have obtained has come from our Swedish advocates. But this study will become a global competition changer, so we hope that low-carb morons from all over the world will want to contribute. Here’s how you can help:

Low carb vs. severe calorie control

The study, called CARBCOUNT, led by Simon Dankel of the Department of Clinical Research at the University of Bergen, Norway, has been designed by investigates from five different European countries. They have decided to aim high: they want to reverse type 2 diabetes, so that participates obtain normal blood sugar degrees without the use of medication.

Two different dietary medications will be likened. One group will be treated with a LCHF diet for fifteen months. Players will be permitted to eat as much as they demand, but the daily carbohydrates will be limited to a maximum of 30 grams for the first three months. After that, slightly more carbohydrates will also be available, to a maximum of 30-80 grams per day.

A second radical will use meal replacements as part of most calorie limited food, 825 -8 53 kcal per period, for three months, will be monitored by either a low-fat or low-carbohydrate diet for twelve months.

One of the researchers in development projects is Mike Lean, professor of human nutrition at Glasgow University, has previously shown that a banquet permutation diet can lead to a load reduction of more than 15 kg, with 36 percent of participants still having normal blood sugar tiers after two years, compared to three percent in the govern group.

The investigates now want to study whether a low-carbohydrate diet, with a more ordinary intake of meat, can have the same good effect, and whether kind 2 diabetes can be made without the participants having to lose as much weight.

Supporting this study can help improve the quality of care for parties with category 2 diabetes all over the world. If this sicknes can be made, it will thwart things like myocardial infarction, cancer, dementia, mental illness and fertility difficulties. There is so much to gain!

Please give this study your approval and share this post – you will help more beings live healthy lives. Thank you!
