Abstract

Aims
Trials investigating the role of carbohydrate restriction in the management of glycaemia in type 2 diabetes (T2D) have been confounded by multiple factors including degree of calorie restriction, dietary protein content, and by no clear definition of a low-carbohydrate diet. The current study sought to provide insight into the relationship between carbohydrate restriction and glycaemia by testing the effect of varying doses of carbohydrate on continuous glucose concentrations within a range of intakes defined as low-carbohydrate while controlling for confounding factors.

Methods
This was a randomised crossover trial in participants with T2D (HbA1c: 6.6 ± 0.6%, 49 ± 0.9 mmol/mol) testing 5 different 6-day eucaloric dietary treatments with varying carbohydrate content (10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 30% kcal). Diets exchanged %kcal from carbohydrate with fat, keeping protein constant at 15% kcal. Daily self-weighing was employed to ensure weight stability throughout each treatment arm. Between dietary treatments, participants underwent a washout period of at least 7 days and were advised to maintain their habitual diet. Glycaemic control was assessed using a continuous glucose monitoring device.

Results
12 participants completed the study. There were no differences in 24-hour and postprandial sensor glucose concentrations between the 30%kcal and 10%kcal doses (7.4 ± 1.1mmol/L vs 7.6 ± 1.3mmol/L (P=0.28) and 8.1 ± 1.5mmol/L vs 8.5 ± 1.4mmol/L (P=0.28) respectively). In our exploratory analyses we did not find any dose-response relationship between carbohydrate intake and glycaemia. A small amount of weight loss occurred in each treatment arm (range: 0.4 to 1.1kg over the 6 days) but adjusting for these differences did not influence the primary or secondary outcomes.

Conclusions
Modest changes in dietary carbohydrate content in the absence of weight loss while keeping dietary protein intake constant do not appear to influence glucose concentrations in people with well-controlled T2D.
