Abstract:In conclusion, changes in both dietary protein quantity and type (soy protein instead of animal protein) were shown to have a positive impact on the progression of DN, without adversely affecting intestinal adaptation. Soy protein consumption was also shown to positively affect risk factors of CHD in type 2 diabetic patients. Thus, the consumption of soy protein products may constitute an important dietary modification for type 2 diabetic patients. In particular, diets with soy protein at higher protein intakes (∼1.4 g/kg/d in human study) may provide a practical alternative to low protein diets, to overcome potential problems with dietary compliance and the risk of malnutrition.
