Twelve patients (8 females and 4 males) ingested 15g of apple fibre per day over a period of 7 weeks. There was a significant improvement in diabetic control, as reflected by a fall in mean fasting plasma glucose (P<0.05) and in percentage glycosylated haemoglobin (p<0.005). There was a 5% decrease in plasma cholesterol and 4% increase in HDL-cholesterol with no change in plasma triglyceride. These results suggest that apple fibre may be a useful adjuvant in the management of non insulin dependent maturity onset diabetic patients.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Keywords:||Non insulin dependent maturity onset diabetes mellitus;Diabetic control;Dietary fibre||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
