Data on more than 22,000 participants showed, based on a researcher-developed 10-point scale, that those who had Mediterranean diet scores of 6 and above were 12% less likely than those with very low scores to develop type 2 diabetes. Those who had the highest carbohydrate intake had a 21% increased risk compared with those who had the lowest carb consumption. Participants with both high Mediterranean diet scores and low carb intake had a 20% reduced risk of diabetes compared with those with lower diet scores and higher carb intake, researchers reported in Diabetologia.
