The Prediabaid nutritional method has been validated by diabetes expert Reginald Allouche throughout his 30 years of practice.
It is also based on a clinical study published in 2012 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition¹:
A prospective, randomized trial conducted in the La Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital in Paris on a population of overweight or obese patients, and prediabetic patients compared an energy-restricted high-protein diet with a low glycemic index foods and a high soluble fiber content to a conventional low-calorie diet. The former was associated with improvements in cardiometabolic risk factors; a greater reduction of the size of the adipocytes (fat cells) and the markers of inflammation; and a significant reduction of the glycemia.
The Prediabaid program is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
