Effect of Chia Seeds (Salvia Hispanica L.) on Glucose Control in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:43:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
