The Diabetes U.K.is conducting a three-year study in hopes of finding positive benefits for those suffering from type 2 diabetes and obesity. Fermentable carbs, such as those from garlic, asparagus and artichoke, may help reduce appetite and possibly increase insulin sensitivity, which helps to stabilize blood sugar.
According to Telegraph, Nicola Guess, who is leading the study, said: “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. If successful, this study will be able to determine whether fermentable carbohydrates could provide the public with an effective and affordable health intervention to reduce an individual’s risk of developing diabetes.
