Effect of wheat bran on diabetic subjects


Worldwide, 3.2 million deaths are attributable to diabetes every year. The present study was to supplement wheat bran and evaluate the effect of diabetic subjects. Thirty diabetic subjects were selected and divided into two groups of 15 each. Group A formed the experimental group to which 60 g of wheat germ was supplemented daily for a period of six months. Group B constituted the remaining 15 diabetic subjects who served as control to whom no supplementation was given. Fasting and post prandial glucose and glycosylated haemoglobin was evaluated initially and after the supplementation period. Group A showed significance (P<0.01) difference over group B in all the biochemical test performed.
