"Over the past few decades, China has undergone a substantial nutritional transition that's seen many people move away from a traditional diet comprising grains

Within that same time period, the diabetes rate has increased steadily as well. When examining dietary reports from about 8,500 participants

One important note about this research is that it shows correlation, not causation. What does this mean, exactly?

While researchers see an association between egg consumption and a rise in diabetes prevalence occurring at the same time

They can't prove a direct link between the two. That said, this isn't the first time eggs have gotten scrutiny in a nutritional study exploring diabetes.

A study published in 2009 in Diabetes Care that examined data from over 56,000 people in ongoing health research trials

Also found there was a strong association between high levels of daily egg consumption and increased risk of type 2 diabetes in both men and women.

In that particular study, researchers noted that this might happen because the dietary cholesterol found in eggs could be raising blood glucose (sugar) levels.

When those remain elevated, it can increase the risk of insulin resistance and lead to a higher risk of developing prediabetes or diabetes.
