A low-carbohydrate diet may prevent end-stage renal failure in type 2 diabetes. A case report

A low-carbohydrate diet may prevent end-stage renal failure in type 2 diabetes. A case report Abstract An obese patient with type 2 diabetes whose diet was changed from the recommended high-carbohydrate, low-fat type to a low-carbohydrate diet showed a significant reduction in bodyweight, improved glycemic control and a reversal of a six year long decline of renal function. The reversal of the renal function was likely caused by both improved glycemic control and elimination of the patient's obesity.
