Further study details as provided by Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glucose blood level [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Measure the change in blood sugar levels

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Dosage of Insulin [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Measure the levels of insulin

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: June 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
All 10 subjects in the study will consume the investigational food product.
Dietary Supplement: Nutralin
Food product to be taken 15 minutes prior to each of the three main meals of the day.
Other Name: No other names at this time.

Detailed Description:
The investigational food product has helped decrease the amount of insulin needed in treating diabetic dogs and has improved the dogs' longevity and quality of life. Observational analysis by trained veterinarians has indicated that the natural fluctuations in blood glucose levels do not exist in dogs using the product. The hypothesis for this study is that healthy human subjects will have an increase in insulin levels after consuming the investigational food product.
