High Fat For Type I

The diets comprised of:
(i) 45% carbohydrate, 34% fat, 32 grams fibre per day (higher carbohydrate diet).
(ii) 38% carbohydrate, 43% fat, 20 grams fibre per day (higher fat diet).
After 4 months, HbA1c levels were 1.8% higher in those on the higher carbohydrate diet compared to those on the higher fat diet.
This study reveals that a higher fat diet enables better blood sugar control than a higher carbohydrate diet in type I diabetics.

I wonder how many people's mind will be changed by the facts.  This isn't a remarkably low carb diet, I look forward to seeing the next level of research in this arena.
