A large body of literature in both experimental animals and humans indicates that chromium is an essential element involved in the action of insulin as demonstrated in the studies of chromium deficiency. Although chromium deficiency has not been defined beyond that in patients receiving TPN, epidemiologic studies suggest that tissue levels of chromium are reduced among diabetic individuals, especially in those with existing CVD, compared with healthy control subjects.


There are many many micronutrients like this. Magnesium, vitamin D for example, that regulate insulin sensitivity and deficiency of which can cause type 1 or 2 diabetes. I would try all of those before removing a macronutrient group completely from diet.

Why instead of making it complex, keep it simple.

KISS principle

Start from sinple concept, then afterward you can investigate complicated matter like chromium interaction.
