Low-glycaemic diet seen to reverse diastolic dysfunction of diabetes.

From (Medscape log-in required):-

"Of 32 overweight or obese diabetic patients (mean body-mass index, 34) without cardiac disease who were engaged in a "rehabilitation program in order to lose weight" that included two hours of supervised aerobic exercise per day, half followed a low-glycemic diet (25% carbohydrate, 45% fat, 30% protein) and the other half a low-fat diet (55% carbohydrate, 25% fat, and 20% protein) for three weeks. The diets provided the same amount of calories. Those on the low-fat diet then switched to the low-glycemic diet for an additional two weeks"

"....the two diets led to about the same declines in weight and waist circumference..."

The diet was 25% carbohydrate, 45% fat, 30% protein.
It was a low-carbohydrate/low-glycaemic load diet.
It was not a very-low-carb diet.
