Purpose The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of discontinuation of sugar sweetened beverages on hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and plasma fasting and post-prandial blood glucose in a population with type 2 diabetes.
Hypothesis Elimination of sugar sweetened beverages from the diet for a 4 week period will lead to a decrease in HbA1c and plasma fasting and 2 hour post prandial blood glucose in a population with a history of type 2 diabetes and high consumption of sugar sweetened beverages.
Specific aims to test hypothesis
- Investigate how elimination of sugar sweetened beverages from the diet affects HbA1c and plasma fasting and two hour post prandial blood glucose.
- Test the feasibility of carrying out a simple diet intervention in an outpatient population with type 2 diabetes.
