"We studied prospective associations between the intake of total, plant-based, and animal protein and the risk of pre-diabetes and diabetes in 4 population-based studies included in the PREVIEW project."
Key Findings: Higher protein intake was associated with reduced risk of pre-diabetes and diabetes. The favorable associations between plant-based proteins and diabetes was seen, even after adjusting for weight/BMI.
