Study: Mediterranean Diet Good For Type 2 Diabetes Patients.

Reuters Share to FacebookShare to Twitter (2/7, Doyle) reports that a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a Mediterranean style-diet that includes fruits, vegetables, fish, whole grains and the use of olive oil and herbs instead of butter and salt is better at reducing blood sugar and encouraging weight loss for diabetes patients. Researchers at the UK's Western Sussex Hospitals looked at 20 studies that compared seven diets on how they affected adults with type 2 diabetes. The study found that those who followed a Mediterranean diet lost an average of four pounds in comparison to the other six diets, which showed no significant change in the patients' weight.
