The Western Australian Parliament Food Fix Report 2018

Image result for the food fix report western australiaThe landmark report by Western Australia’s Education and Health Standing Committee calls for low-carbohydrate diets to be one of three options formally offered to patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, link to the report here

The report states that remission, not just management, should be the goal of type 2 diabetes interventions.

The other interventions recommended in the report were a very-low-calorie diet (800 calories or less per day) and gastric bypass surgery. The report pointed out that advocates of the two dietary interventions acknowledged the value of each other’s approach and were in favour of people with type 2 diabetes using the diet that best suited them.

Significantly the committee report notes that the Australian Dietary Guidelines “should not be used for people with diabetes,” as “they do not apply to people with a medical condition who need special dietary advice” due to the potential to raise blood sugar levels.
