Epidemiological support for the protection of whole grains against diabetes.

Diets rich in whole grains and cereal fibers are associated with low type 2 diabetes risk in men and women.

This study investigated evidences that support the hypothesis that low type 2 diabetes risk is associated habitual consumers of whole grains and cereal fibers. Researchers analyzed data obtained from relevant prospective, observational, and feeding studies on the subject.

Researchers observed a low prevalence of type 2 diabetes among frequent consumers of whole grains and cereal fibers. Diets high on whole grains and cereal fibers were also found to reduce insulin resistance, lower fasting plasma insulin levels, and improve cellular glucose uptake in diabetic and non-diabetic subjects. The findings of this study provide further evidence that strengthens the hypothesis that high consumption of whole grains and cereal fibers may confer significant protection against the development type 2 diabetes in men and women.
