Background & Aim: Traditionally, physicians around the world hold the view that carbohydrate intake should be limited in their diet to keep their blood glucose level normal or slightly excessive. However, some update researches, proving that Low Carbohydrate Diet (LCD) with animal-based fat and protein is not necessarily beneficial to the diabetic patient, may revolutionize this opinion prevailing in the world. The purpose of this article is to compare kinds of different viewpoints on diets for DM (diabetes mellitus) people
Method: We read articles published from the past decade to recently about diet for diabetic patients. By comparing different methods and theories of treatment (traditional and update) in the aspect of diet, we find some associations between LCD and prognosis of the diabetic patient.
Conclusion: Strict limitation of carbohydrate should not be advocated. Since Moderate Carbohydrate Diet is able to reduce the mortality rate, it should be further studied to explore a precious amount of intake of carbohydrate for diabetic patients.
