Wheat may Increase Insulin Sensitivity

Past research revealed that people who consume high-fiber diets have lower rates of diabetes type 2. To find out how insoluble fiber reduces diabetes risk, German researchers gave a group of 17 overweight and obese women without diabetes a specially designed bread in amounts that supplies them the recommended 20-35 g per day. After 3 days of eating that bread, the women's Insulin sensitivity improved by 8%.

Fibers are known to have positive effects on blood lipids (total cholesterol,LDL (low density lipoproteins), and triglycerides), all of which increase the risk of developing diabetes complications.

Fibers are present fluently in fruit, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains.
