Abstract

We assessed the effectiveness of advising a low‐carbohydrate diet to people with prediabetes attending a single, general practice.Methods: Dietary advice that focused on carbohydrate restriction was provided to 43 people [23 male, mean (SD) age 64.4 (11.5) years] with prediabetes (defined as having an HbA1c between 42 and 48 mmol/mol) attending a single, general practice.
