People have been eating more carbs for years, and now some research suggests that some of the carbs you’ve been getting in your diet don’t really work.
Experts are trying to figure out why.
Read moreA new study published in the journal Diabetes found that people who ate the most calories per day had a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who eat fewer calories.
Researchers found that the number of calories people consumed in the past 30 days was associated with a higher level of the diabetes-causing gene, known as POMC1.POMC2 is a gene that controls a number of important functions in the body.
It is also linked to several other types of heart disease.
Pompeo, the study’s lead author, said the association between high consumption of carbohydrates and diabetes was significant and could explain why people who consumed more calories in the first place had a greater risk.
“We know that carbohydrates stimulate the metabolism of the pancreas, and that that’s why you have insulin resistance,” he said.
“What we don’t know is why the insulin resistance is higher in people who have a higher consumption of calories.”
People with a family history of type 2, or type 1, diabetes were more likely to have a high intake of carbohydrates, the authors wrote.
While most of us know how important it is to eat a balanced diet, not all of us can afford to eat more calories.
If you’re not eating enough carbs to keep your blood sugar under control, the body can’t properly absorb the nutrients it needs to keep blood sugar from dropping too low.
People with diabetes have trouble keeping their blood sugar levels under control.
“People who are trying so hard to lose weight have a harder time managing their blood glucose levels because their insulin is going off too much, so their blood sugars drop, and they have a lower blood sugar,” Dr. Pascual said.
Diabetes can be managed with medications, exercise, and eating more fruits and vegetables.
