Q.

HIGH PROTEIN DIETS

Please advise if following high protein diets could result in diabetes? Also, I have been told that following a high protein diet is beneficial to a diabetic? Any truth in this?

Sun, a high protein diet per se will not cause diabetes and a high protein diet is not recommended in diabetics.
