What is the effect of replacing a high carbohydrate diet with a high monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) diet in persons with type 2 diabetes? (DGAC 2010)
Moderate evidence indicates that increased monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) intake, rather than high carbohydrate intake, may be beneficial for persons with type 2 diabetes. High MUFA intake, when replacing a high carbohydrate intake, results in improved biomarkers of glucose tolerance and diabetic control.
Determine the mechanism by which dietary MUFA improve serum lipids, glucose metabolism, insulin levels, HOMA scores, inflammatory markers and blood pressure in both healthy persons and in persons with type 2 diabetes.
