Or lower their risk of diabetes (if it indeed does that) by raising their risk of epilepsy.The nature of all medicine (including dietary control of disease) is to balance risk. All choices have risks, and you have to look at how you manage the best balance. Looking at a risk of something in 20 years time, when the person may not survive 5 years, you look at the 5 year survival first.As for diabetes and fat - is that really a risk? I thought diabetes was concerned with the metabolising of sugars, so is it necessarily effected by fat. On the other hand, high fat diets do present a risk for the liver.As I have indicated several times before, I am not a believer in the one size fits all diet.
Obesity brings a higher risk of diabetes.
