Fermentable Carbohydrates May Help Prevent Diabetes
Scientists and researchers have been providing evidence on a regular basis now for some time. The evidence supports the theory that weight loss can and often does prevent diabetes. Even in people who are at a high risk for developing type 2 diabetes, which makes up about 90% of diabetics.
Researchers are now presenting evidence that fermentable carbohydrates such as garlic, asparagus and Jerusalem artichokes may be to stabilize blood sugar levels in both pre-diabetics and diabetics.
Fermentable carbohydrates release a hormone in the gut that could improve insulin sensitivity, which in return would improve a person’s blood sugar levels.
Nicola Guess who is in charge of a study at Imperial College is quoted as saying. “By investigating how appetite and blood glucose levels are regulated in people at high risk of Type 2 diabetes, it is hoped that we can find a way to prevent its onset.”
