During this programme, you will be following a ‘Low Carbohydrate Diet’, consisting of 50-130g of carbohydrate per day. It is important for anyone who is following a low carbohydrate diet to have support from health care professionals. This is to ensure that your diet provides a healthy balance, is enjoyable and is tailored to your cultural and personal preferences.
There is research to suggest that you may achieve remission with a low carbohydrate diet. Research suggests that remission of type 2 diabetes is more likely with total replacement, but we know that this is not suitable for everyone. Reducing or maintaining a healthy weight can have health benefits including fewer medications, improved blood glucose levels and reduced risk of complications.
If you have been prescribed supplements, we recommend that you follow the advice of your GP.
It is important to be aware that you may be at an increased risk of experiencing high (hypers) or lows (hypos) if you are on certain medications for diabetes whilst following a low carbohydrate diet.
