Diabetes Mellitus and The Diet Plate®

By Dr Ian Campbell


Doctors on both sides of the Atlantic and in other parts of the world are increasingly recognising the importance of portion control in the treatment of diabetes are recommending their patients use The Diet Plate®. The Diet Plate® is not only proven to help users lose weight, it remains the only portion control plate clinically proven to help in the management of diabetics. This ground-breaking work was done by Dr Sue Pederson of the University of Calgary, Canada and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in June 2007. Dr Sue showed that one third of people with diabetes who used The Diet Plate® over a period of six months decreased their reliance on diabetes medication, including insulin. They also showed documented weight loss 80% greater than her control subjects and they saw decreases in cholesterol level. Dr Pederson concluded that “portion control” was a vital tool for people with diabetes to control their condition and that The Diet Plate® was a safe, and highly effective way of achieving that.

Dr Sue reporting on her findings said:

“the weight loss results are all the more impressive considering that people with diabetes in general do not respond well in weight loss programmes. Our overall results are comparable to similar studies undertaken using expensive weight loss drugs, but with no need for close medical supervision or risk of unpleasant side effects.”

 

The creator of The Diet Plate® Mrs Kay Illingworth reacted positively to the study.

“For years we’ve been helping men and women lose weight and helping them live normal lives. Now we can prove what we’ve always known, that The Diet Plate® is extremely effective and can greatly help people with diabetes regain control. It’s very exciting and rewarding to have developed such a simple and effective way to help people control their weight”.

 

Dr Ian Campbell, a leading UK expert on obesity and weight management welcomed the findings.

“Losing weight is never easy, and even harder for diabetics. To achieve these results over a six month period is excellent, and with no more side effects than an occasional decrease in blood glucose, easily corrected by a reduction in medication, is very impressive indeed. The Diet Plate® puts control back in the hands of the individual and makes it much easier for everyone who wants to lose weight and reap the health benefits.
