Eggs to Help Diabetics

February 25/Noosa, Australia/Noosa News -- Australian research shows eating eggs can benefit people with type 2 diabetes.

The research, published in the February edition of the British Journal of Nutrition, has revealed a high-protein diet which includes nutrient-dense eggs can deliver significant health benefits, as part of a healthy weight-loss eating plan.

The research found that two eggs per day improved levels of HDL-C (good cholesterol).

According to co-researcher Dr. Manny Noakes from the CSIRO's Food and Nutritional Sciences and co-author of the CSIRO's best-selling Total Wellbeing Diet, prior to this study little research had been done on dietary cholesterol and diabetes management. "We believe that this research demonstrates that a high-protein, energy-restricted diet that includes eggs regularly may have nutritional benefits and help in metabolic control in people with type two diabetes," Noakes said.
