Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90 percent of diabetes cases in the world and is generally referred to as "adult onset diabetes".
The researchers discovered that a diet low in plant-based fats can help patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus to better manage their condition. According to a study published in Diabetes Care, 43 percent of patients with this condition who followed a low-fat diet based on plants for five months reduced the need to take prescription drugs for diabetes.
