Based on the evidence that the incidence of diabetes is lower in vegetarians, some studies have investigated vegan interventions. These studies have shown that a vegan diet may be effective in managing type 2 diabetes. Switching diabetics to a vegan diet lowered hemoglobin A1C and LDL levels.[22] A vegan diet may improve blood filterability.[24] Vegan diets may lower advanced glycation endproducts.[25]

Diabetes U.K. state that diabetes should not prevent people from going vegetarian – in fact, it may be beneficial to diabetics to go vegetarian, as this will cut down on saturated fats. Recent evidence suggests that diabetics may benefit from as many as eight portions of fruit and vegetable a day.[citation needed]

Due to their high levels of dietary fibre certain foods are considered particularly beneficial for diabetics such as legumes, nuts, fruits, and vegetables.[26]
