Dr Barnard further added that the traditional North Indian diet is ideal as its mostly 100% vegetarian, the cooking oils used are done so sparingly and one does not miss out on ethnic variety.

At his lecture Dr Barnard explained about his cutting edge research which strongly implies that a dairy-free vegan diet not only drastically reduced blood sugar but also improved insulin sensitivity among many patients. After much research it was concluded that this diet helped to reduce weight, escalate energy levels and also lowered cholesterol and high blood pressure. This could be extremely good news for Type 2 diabetes patients as they are susceptible to kidney failure, stroke, nervous system damage, heart disease, vision loss, and other life-threatening repercussions.

The correct diet can certainly revolutionize diabetes treatment, as it has proved more effective than oral medications. It aids in helping the individuals own insulin work successfully for them.

Dr. Barnard's book called "Dr. Neal Barnard's program for reversing Diabetes" is gaining popularity in leaps and bounds.

So keep fit, stay fit and keep diabetes at bay with the traditional Indian vegan diet way!
