A study carried out by American Diabetes Association has shown that water can help diabetes patients to have a much longer life.
Published in Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism, the study showed that patients with Type 2 diabetes working toward weight loss should rather take enough water than diet beverages.
A group of 81 overweight and obese women who had Type 2 diabetes participated in a 24-week weight loss program.
They were required to either substitute water for diet beverages or keep taking diet beverages five times per week after having lunch pending the time the study would elapse.
Researchers found that participants who switched to water and stopped drinking diet beverages experienced a decrease in weight and body mass index.
Those who took water experienced greater improvements in fasting blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity compared with patients who took diet beverages.
They also experienced a decrease in weight and body mass index.
The results were concluded to have wide-ranging implications for those with Type 2 diabetes.
A recent study further showed that diet and regular soda could be contributing factors to woman’s fertility and chances of successful artificial reproduction; it also revealed that major health risks, especially in women, are associated with consuming diet beverages.
