How Does Fiber Affect Blood Glucose Levels?

Fiber is a type of carbohydrate (just like sugars and starches) but since it is not broken down by the human body, it does not contribute any calories. Yet, on a food label, fiber is listed under total carbohydrate. So this gets kind of confusing for people who have diabetes. Carbohydrate is the one nutrient that has the biggest impact on blood glucose. So, does fiber have any effect on your blood glucose?

Stem Cells Being Tested to Treat Type 1 Diabetes

Scientists are conducting a study that would use human stem cells to repopulate insulin-producing cells destroyed by Type 1 diabetes. The cells would be grown in the lab and transplanted to diabetes patients. The process looks very promising, and the transplanted cells would begin producing insulin immediately — and could revolutionize diabetes treatment.

Story at-a-glance

  • Researchers at the University of Adelaide in Australia revealed that artificial sweeteners impair the body’s response to glucose, reducing control of blood sugar levels
  • It took just two weeks for the artificial sweetener group to show adverse effects to their blood sugar levels, including a reduction in numbers of the gut peptide GLP-1, which limits the rise in blood sugar after eating
  • While public health agencies continue to support the use of artificial sweeteners, one Yale University cardiologist, and ex-diet soda fiend, is speaking out against them

How many types of diabetes exist?  Are there 2, 3, 4, or more than 4?

See:

http://www.howmanyarethere.net/how-many-types-of-diabetes-are-there/

As the etiology differs as to the type, not all treatments and preventions are effective for all.  Yet, there is much good advice given in this thread that probably applies to most of the people reading it.

I would venture to say that a whole-foods, plant-based diet free of oil, salt and sugar will greatly benefit ALL "types" of humans.
