Low-Carbohydrate Diet (LCD)
Japan LCD Promotion Association (JLCDPA)
Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) Study
Among several kinds of nutritional therapy for diabetes, a low-carbohydrate diet (LCD) has been effective for weight reduction and improving glucose variability. Authors and colleagues have continued clinical practice, research and education for developing LCD through various activities of Japan LCD promotion association (JLCDPA). The diet protocol includes super-LCD, standard-LCD and petite-LCD, which has a carbohydrate ratio of 12%, 26% and 40%, respectively. Recommended food for LCD would be an egg, cheese, meat, tofu, beans and so on because of their less carbohydrate content. We hope further understanding and prevalence of LCD in health and medical care.
