Jean-Francois Yale, MD, and colleagues at McGill University in Montreal announced the results of a study in the February issue of Diabetes Care after they tested the effect of sugar intake on a group of 48 people with type 2 diabetes.
The type 2s were given two different meal plans:
The patients in the test plan showed a tendency to consume fewer calories overall than those on the conventional plan. Also, the test group ate less starch and carbohydrates.
The research team reported that weight remained stable. In addition, there was no evidence that consuming more sugar worsened one's metabolic profile.
The researchers conclude that people with diabetes who incorporate sugar in their meal plans may develop better awareness of carbohydrate consumption, which could lead to maintaining a healthier diet.
