Atkins diet effective in treating type 2 diabetes

1 in 3 adult New Zealand Maoriís are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. A New Zealand study has found that the Atkins diet can not only reduce weight effectively but also alleviates type 2 diabetes. Subjects followed a strict Atkins diet and found they had lost weight, improve or cured their type 2 diabetes, had more energy and had fewer hunger pangs. However, the researchers say that the observed improvement in diabetes may be achieved by any diet where patients lose weight.
