Exciting findings show people with type 2 diabetes benefited significantly with a meal replacement made from soy, yogurt, and honey; called Almased®.
In a study finding presented at the American Diabetes Association’s 72nd Scientific Sessions, diabetics lost a substantial amount of weight, cut their insulin dose, improved HbA1C levels, lowered their triglyceride levels and raised their good cholesterol levels.
Two of the patients enrolled in the meal replacement study were able to stop their insulin altogether.
Type 2 diabetes improves with meal replacement, even without weight loss Stephan Martin, MD, medical director of the West-German Diabetes and Health Centre in Düsseldorf, Germany, who conducted the study said in a press release, “One of the most interesting findings to us was that Almased’s positive effect on blood sugar was independent of its effect on weight loss.”
