Diabetes and extra virgin olive oil

Posted on January 7, 2014 at 4:53 PM
A recent trial in the Annals of Internal Medicine looked at the role of a Mediterranean diet in reducing the onset of type 2 diabetes. It seems to suggest that eating this type of diet which is especially high in extra virgin olive oil  (50ml/day) in some way prevents the onset of diabetes. The benefit was a 30% risk reduction in developing diabetes compared to controls who were on a low fat diet. The diet was relatively low in dairy products and low in carbohydrate content.
Although the mechanism of how the Mediterranean diet reduces the onset of diabetes is not completely understood it may be related to the relatively low carbohydrate content and the prevention of insulin resistance.
This is not conclusive evidence but it does suggest that a Mediterranean diet is better for us and in particular reducing the carbohydrate content in our diets is a good thing.

I wish to express appreciation to you for rescuing me from this type of issue. Right after researching throughout the world-wide-web and coming across ideas which were not pleasant, I was thinking my entire life was done. Being alive without the solutions to the issues you've fixed through the short post is a critical case, as well as those which could have adversely affected my career if I hadn't discovered the website. Your own mastery and kindness in handling all the details was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a step like this. I'm able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this professional and effective guide. I won't think twice to propose the website to anyone who should receive direction on this area.

All of the people were as a consequence very interested to read through them and now have undoubtedly been making the most of these things. Many thanks for truly being quite kind and also for obtaining such really good information most people are really needing to be aware of. Our own sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.
