Does eating a raw food diet prevent or treat diabetes? Evidence-Based Answer: No. However, higher reported intake of raw vegetables is associated with decreased risk of the development of type 2 diabetes (SOR: B, single, large, prospective cohort study). Eating raw or steamed foods compared with cooked foods leads to improved insulin levels and postprandial glucose (SOR: C, short-term RCTs with disease oriented outcomes). But there is currently no evidence to suggest that a raw food diet can treat diabetes.
