Low Carb & High Fat against diabetes

Although the Dukan Diet is focused on low fat it does share the low carb aspect of the diet mentioned in this interesting article about reversing kidney damage in diabetic mice:

A controlled diet high in fat and low in carbohydrate can repair kidney damage in diabetic mice, according to US scientists.

The study, published in journal PLoS ONE, showed a "ketogenic diet" could reverse damage caused to tubes in the kidneys by too much sugar in the blood.

In the UK around a third of the 2.8m people with either type 1 or 2 diabetes go on to develop kidney damage.
