High Fiber Diet helpful for Diabetics
Many diabetics can significantly lower their blood sugar – and maybe even reduce their medication or stop taking it altogether – by eating lots and lots of fruits, vegetables and high-fiber grain, researchers say.
The experimental diet – tested on 13 diabetics – contained 50 grams of fiber a day, or about twice the amount recommended by the American Diabetes Association. That is equivalent to seven or eight servings of fruit and vegetables and three of whole wheat or other high-fiber grain.
The diet also improved the diabetics’ cholesterol levels, which was encouraging. Heart disease is a major cause of death among diabetics.
The study was published in New England Journal of Medicine. It was led by Dr. Abhimanyu Garg of UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
