That was the finding of researchers at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon.
Eleven patients with type 2 diabetes were randomly assigned to receive a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet or a diet high in monounsaturated fat for six weeks. Both diets offered self-selection of food quantity.
With both diets, plasma total, LDL-, and HDL-cholesterol concentrations tended to decrease. Body weight decreased significantly (an average of 3.37 pounds) for those following the low-fat diet.
Triglycerides, blood glucose control and insulin sensitivity did not differ significantly between the two diets.
