A low-protein diet could be an effective strategy for lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related metabolic disorders.

But a high protein diet is linked to an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes and high protein levels have been correlated to poor insulin regulation.

The study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation (JCI). The research led by Adam Rose at the German Cancer Research Center demonstrated that very low protein diets could improve glucose homeostasis in mice and humans.

In obese mice, low protein diets prevented dysregulation of glucose levels by inducing liver stress signaling pathways.

Low protein diets also improved blood glucose homeostasis and other metabolic markers in a small group of healthy young men.

These data indicate that low protein diets activate stress response pathways in the liver that may reduce the risk of developing obesity-related metabolic disorders.
