Paleolithic Diet Decreases Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Type 2 Diabetes

paleolithic_diet

Or so says a study from 2009 in the Journal of Cardiovascular Diabetology.

Background: Our aim was to compare the effects of a Paleolithic (‘Old Stone Age’) diet and a diabetes diet as generally recommended on risk factors for cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes not treated with insulin.

Conclusion: Over a 3-month study period, a Paleolithic diet improved glycemic control and several cardiovascular risk factors compared to a Diabetes diet in patients with type 2 diabetes.
