Low-carbohydrate diets have increased in popularity in order to achieve glycaemic control and weight loss in Type 2 diabetes patients. Still, there is a lack of consistency and long-term results in existing studies on Type 2 diabetes patients. In this review, we address current knowledge of low-carbohydrate diets and how they affect glycaemic control, diabetic dyslipidaemia, weight and markers of cardiovascular risk, and our aim is to aid medical practitioners in guiding Type 2 diabetes patients wisingh to try a low-carbohydrate diet in order to take control of their disease.
