Effect of fiber supplement on blood glucose level of niddm subjects

Author(s): Seema V. Medhe*, Mangal V. Medhe


An investigation was undertaken to assess effect of fiber rich supplement on blood glucose level of type 2 diabetic patients. Fiber rich supplement was tested on eleven type 2 diabetic subjects for blood glucose lowering effect by undertaking an intervention of two months feeding trials. Results with respect to two months supplementation indicated that the fiber rich supplement was helpful in significantly reducing the fasting and postprandial blood glucose level of subjects. The reduction in the fasting blood glucose level after two months supplement intake was 30-70 mg/dl. While, the postprandial blood glucose values of the subjects were reduced by 92-140 mg/dl. There was reduction in the physiological symptoms at the end of the supplementation. It can be concluded from the study that the fiber rich supplement had therapeutic value as it was beneficial for lowering the blood glucose content of type 2 diabetics.
