ICMR states that if you cut down carbohydrate to fifty-five percent and increase protein intake to twenty percent then it can reverse diabetes
Diabetes nowadays has become very common. National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) data states that there are seventy-four million people living with diabetes in India. It is a hormonal disorder that is caused when the pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin. Insulin is the hormone that transfers sugar from blood to cells where it is stored or used as energy. The reason of being diabetic can be genetic as well as due to unhealthy lifestyle, and obesity also increases the risk of high blood sugar. If not taken care of properly, diabetes can damage vital organs such as nerves, eyes and kidneys.
And according to a recent report from the research conducted by Indian Council of Medical Research-India Diabetes (ICMR-INDIAB) if you cut down carbohydrate in your diet to fifty to fifty-five percent and increase protein intake to twenty percent then you can halt Type-2 diabetes. The effect of diabetes can even be reversed if you have been newly diagnosed.
The research included data from across the country which had responses from eighteen thousand and ninety people. It is the country’s largest epidemiological study on diabetes. The report also stated that majority of Indians consume sixty to seventy percent carbohydrates in the form of white rice and refined wheat and very less protein which increases the risk of Type-2 diabetes.
