A team of US-based doctors are to conduct studies in India with the aim of further proving the efficiency of eating a low-fat vegetarian diet to reverse blood sugar levels amongst diabetic patients.
The body, known as the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine have found that eating a vegetarian diet involving no milk or dairy products could have a surprisingly positive effect on bringing down blood sugar levels . The diet also lowered cholesterol, blood pressure and even weight amongst diabetics.
The founder of the committee, Dr Neal. Barnard, is now planning to conduct two further studies in India by combining with Indian physicians. The team are planning to initiate a study on an adult group and a study on children .
Barnard reportedly commented: “Our aim was to prove and promote the efficacy of food in diabetes treatment rather than use of medicines .”
