The CDC reports that 85.2% of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese. Insulin works to stimulate lipid uptake and storage and to inhibit lipid breakdown, promoting fat stores in the body and leading to weight gain. When cells absorb too much glucose, the body converts this into fat. Reducing carbohydrate intake leads to a reduction in insulin circulating in the body, which can lead to weight loss and a reduction of insulin resistance and could result in reversing a patient’s type 2 diabetes.MCT2D is incorporating lower carbohydrate eating patterns coupled with continuous glucose monitoring devices to provide real time feedback to patients about their food choices. These diets reduce glucose variability, decrease hunger, decrease cravings for sugar and fast carbs, decrease insulin requirements, and lead to weight loss.
