The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) release report on lower carbohydrate diets for adults with type 2 diabetes. This report was co-chaired and co-badged with Diabetes UK.
The report was initiated in response to a request from Public Health England, ‘for a systematic assessment of the scientific evidence on ‘low’ carbohydrate diets, in recognition that such diets are gaining attention and are increasingly being promoted.’
SACN does not usually make recommendations relating to clinical conditions, so a joint working group was established. The joint working group included members of SACN, along with members nominated by Diabetes UK, the British Dietetic Association, Royal College of Physicians and Royal College of General Practitioners.
