Eating one egg a day can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, find a new study.
The results of a university in Finland add fuel to the fiery and perpetual debate: are eggs good or bad for diabetes?
Studies have swung in both directions – but this controversial report states that when it comes to risk prevention, eggs are a good thing.
Testing the men, they found that those who ate an egg every day had a certain lipid profile in the blood that is common among men who never develop the disease.
It seems that, without exaggeration, eggs offer some protective benefits in moderation to prevent and stabilize diabetes
Diet is essential for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
People with type 1 can not produce insulin, which is essential for regulating glucose in the body. Type 2 does not produce enough or does not respond well to insulin, which means they have poor glucose regulation.
The eggs are versatile, nutritious and nutritious.
But I am the final enigma for diabetes researchers.
The American Diabetes Association thinks they are fantastic and recommends that people with diabetes eat them.
Each egg contains about 0.5 grams of carbohydrates, which, in theory, keeps your blood sugar under control.
Eggs are rich in potassium, which is good for the heart while keeping sodium levels under control, and biotin, which is good for insulin production.
They are also low in calories and versatile to supplement in a diet.
The eggs contain 187 mg of cholesterol and the official guidelines recommend that people with diabetes reach the daily limit of cholesterol to 200 mg.
There is also evidence that consuming heavy eggs increases the risk of developing diabetes for people who do not have it.
Eggs are also high in protein (about seven grams per egg), which, again, is controversial. It consumes too much protein and the body transforms it into glucose.
In fact, even in this new study that endorses the consumption of eggs, they found that some of the participants had some biochemical compounds in their blood that increases their risk of illness.
WHAT IS THE VERDICT?
The authors of the new study of the University of Eastern Finland, published in the journal Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, state that it is not yet clear.
But, in the end, it seems that, without exaggeration, eggs offer some protective benefits in moderation.
Their conclusion is one egg a day.
"Although it is too early to draw causal conclusions, we now have some suggestions for some egg-related compounds that might play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes," said lead author Stefania Noerman.
"Further in-depth investigations are needed with both cell models and intervention studies on humans using modern techniques, such as metabolomics, to understand the mechanisms underlying the physiological effects of egg intake".
Current guidelines say that three eggs a week are healthy enough and will not push you overboard.
If you have diabetes, consider looking for poached eggs to eliminate other fats such as oil or butter. If you are set on a scramble, consider only the use of whites, since most of the cholesterol of an egg is in the yolk.
