Veganism helps diabetics lose weight and control blood sugar

Vegans have long championed the health benefits of their diet and now they can point to research suggesting that cutting out meat and dairy can keep type 2 diabetes in check.

Patients following a mainly plant-based or vegan diet had better blood-sugar control and lost nearly twice as much weight as those on other diets, according to the review of studies.

The researchers said ‘there was also evidence that eating mainly plant-based foods improved people’s moods and may slow progressive nerve damage associated with diabetes’.
