|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Metabolic Syndrome Albuminuria||Dietary Supplement: guar gum|
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of soluble fiber (guar gum) on the MS components (International Diabetes Federation-2005 and WHO): blood pressure, plasma glucose, triglycerides, HDL, central obesity (waist, BMI),and albuminuria. Secondary objectives are: effect of guar gum on serum fatty acids, , PCR, endothelin 1, and fibrinogen. Primary outcomes were alterations on MS components.
Forty-four type 2 diabetic outpatients were included in a randomized clinical trial: treatment 1- guar gum (10g/day) + usual diet; treatment 2- usual diet. The duration of each treatment was six weeks. Three days weight diet records with concurrent 24h urinary collections (protein intake estimative), clinical and laboratory evaluation were performed at baseline and after 4 and 6 weeks. Serum fatty acids were measured in total triglycerides fractions by gas chromatography.
