Supporting Studies for Type 1 Diabetes
Dietary fiber intakes and insulin requirements in pregnant women with type 1 diabetesSupporting Studies for Type 2 Diabetes
Conclusions: Among pregnant women with type 1 diabetes, higher fiber intake is associated with lower daily insulin requirements. Dietary fiber intake should be considered when counseling patients about the management of blood glucose concentrations.
Long-term dietary treatment with increased amounts of fiber-rich low-glycemic index natural foods improves blood glucose control and reduces the number of hypoglycemic events in type 1 diabetic patients
Conclusions: In type 1 diabetic patients, a High Fiber diet is feasible in the long term and, compared with a Low Fiber diet, improves glycemic control and reduces the number of hypoglycemic events.
Relation of fibre intake to HbA1c and the prevalence of severe ketoacidosis and severe hypoglycaemia. EURODIAB IDDM Complications Study Group.
Conclusions: The occurrence of severe hypoglycaemia was not related to fibre intake. Beneficial effects of fibre on HbA1c and the risk of severe ketoacidosis were particularly pronounced in patients from southern European centres. This study shows that higher fibre intake is independently related to a reduction in HbA1c levels in European people with Type I diabetes. Furthermore, increased fibre intake may reduce the risk of severe ketoacidosis. These beneficial effects were already observed for fibre intake within the range commonly consumed by people with Type I diabetes.
Beneficial effects of high dietary fiber intake in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Conclusions: A high intake of dietary fiber, particularly of the soluble type, above the level recommended by the ADA, improves glycemic control, decreases hyperinsulinemia, and lowers plasma lipid concentrations in patients with type 2 diabetes.
High-fiber, low-fat diet predicts long-term weight loss and decreased type 2 diabetes risk: the Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study.
Conclusions: Dietary fat and fiber intake are significant predictors of sustained weight reduction and progression to type 2 diabetes in high-risk subjects, even after adjustment for other risk factors.
Effect on blood lipids of very high intakes of fiber in diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
Conclusions: Very high intakes of foods rich in soluble fiber lower blood cholesterol levels even when the main dietary modifiers of blood lipids--namely, saturated fat and cholesterol--are greatly reduced.
