…according to a report at MedPageToday.
Women with gestational diabetes were randomized to either a 40% carb diet or 55% carb diet. The same numbers in each group ended up needing insulin therapy to control blood sugars.
Both groups ate the same amount of protein. The lower-carb group replaces some carbs with fat.
Pregnancy outcomes were similar in both groups.
Critics wonder if stricter carbohydrate restriction would have been more effective.
