Shweta Choudhary and Shailja Jain
Type II Diabetes mellitus is a long term metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and relative lack of insulin. Diet plays very important role in the management of Diabetes mellitus. Calories in the form of complex carbohydrate and fiber have multiple benefits in this disease. Since Diabetes raises the risk of high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems, so this study is designed to know the impact of fiber in the management of blood pressure in human Type II Diabetes Mellitus. Under this study three diets viz. control diet (no fiber), low fiber diet (5 gm fiber), high fiber diet (10 gm fiber) were given to Control group, Experimental group 1, Experimental group 2 respectively. Data were recorded after three months supplementation and statistically analyzed. Though there wasn't seen an impact on systolic blood pressure, but there was a significant difference in the mean scores of diastolic blood pressure of the subjects, meaning thereby fiber place an important role in reducing hypertension in the subjects.
