High-fiber diet may reduce risk for type 2 diabetes

High-fiber diet may reduce risk for type 2 diabetes
May 28, 2015

A diet that is rich in cereal and vegetable fiber - but not fiber from fruit sources - may lower the risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to research published in Diabetologia.

In a large European cohort study, researchers found that the association between fiber intake and diabetes risk may be partially explained by body weight, whereas a meta-analysis of prospective studies completed worldwide showed that a high-fiber diet reduced the risk for diabetes independent of BMI.
