What’s the Evidence?

This is called tight control or intensive treatment, and it may lower your risk of getting heart disease, kidney damage, and other problems.

What’s in the news?

Ever heard of the low-GI diet? It was designed for people with diabetes, and involves eating foods that release their energy slowly, such as nuts, beans and lentils. A new study has found that people with type 2 diabetes who ate a low-GI diet had healthier blood sugar and cholesterol levels than those who ate a high-fiber diet. Read more about the study >>
