The purpose of this study is to determine whether the addition of Salvia hispanica L. Alba (Salba) to the conventional treatment for diabetes is associated with improvement in major and emerging cardiovascular risk factors in people with type 2 diabetes.
Cohort studies have linked consumption of whole grain with a reduction in the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease. Grain of the plant Salvia hispanica alba (Salba) contain a high concentration of ω-3 fatty acids in addition to being a rich source of vegetable protein, fiber, calcium and antioxidants which have cardiovascular protective effect. To address the paucity of randomized, well-controlled clinical studies supporting the long-term cardioprotective benefits of whole grain we investigated the effects of a novel grain Salba in type 2 diabetes.
Comparison(s): Participants on a conventional diabetes diet (50% carbohydrate, 20% protein, 30% fat) receive either addition of Salba or matched control supplement for 12 weeks separated by a 4-week washout period.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether drinks containing Salvia hispanica L (Salba) or Flax lower postprandial blood glucose levels and improve appetite in healthy individuals.
This study will investigate the use of a low biologically available and high protein diet (LoBAG) for treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Subjects with type 2 diabetes will be recruited...
Compared to the traditional low fat diet for overweight patients with type 2 diabetes, recent evidence shows that low carbohydrate/high protein diets lower triglycerides and postprandial g...
This study determines whether an educational intervention with a 90 g/day LCD is safe, effective and has good compliance for poorly controlled type 2 diabetes patients.
The aim of the study is to investigate glycemic control during a low carbohydrate diet compared with during a high carbohydrate diet in adults with insulin pump treated type 1 diabetes.
To examine whether a low-carbohydrate, high unsaturated/low saturated fat diet (LC) improves glycemic control and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in overweight and obese patients with type 2...
Prevalence of diabetes, a serious public health problem is rapidly increasing worldwide. Type-2 diabetes is the common form of diabetes characterized by insulin resistance and abnormalities in insulin...
Endothelial dysfunction (ED) plays a key role in the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Likewise, type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a major CVD risk factor. Therefore, our objective...
We hypothesized that diabetes-related distress would vary by type of diabetes and medication regimen [Type 1 diabetes (T1DM), Type 2 diabetes with insulin use (T2DM-i), Type 2 diabetes without insulin...
Type 2 diabetes is 2- to 3-fold more common in patients with schizophrenia than in the general population. A lifestyle with a focus on diet, exercise, and medication is required to prevent complicatio...
A diet prescribed in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, usually limited in the amount of sugar or readily available carbohydrate. (Dorland, 27th ed)
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.
Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
