Diabetes Nutrition Algorithms - Galactose- and Fiber-induced Metabolic Improvement in the Dietetic Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes (DiNA)

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Nov 2012

In animal models and retrospective studies, certain food components such as sugars and fiber have been detected as potential agents to influence development and progress of type 2 diabetes.

The DiNA study prospectively investigates, if non-soluble non-fermentable fibers (vs. soluble ones) and galactose (vs. palatinose) are capable to improvement metabolic parameters in patients with long-term type 2 diabetes and intensive insulin treatment.
