Title: Pilot Study on Low-Carb DiabeSmart Products for Diabetics and Prediabetics

Objective: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of low carb DiabeSmart Batter Additive, DiabeSmart Bhujia, & DiabeSmart Atta Additive in preventing hyperglycaemia in comparison with standard carb diet among diabetics and pre-diabetics.

Background: Excessive carbohydrate consumption, especially high-glycemic index carbs, has been linked to impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes. Insulin resistance is also a key player in developing type 2 diabetes. The strong association between dietary carbohydrates and blood glucose emphasizes the need for therapeutic carbohydrate restriction for type 2 diabetics.

Method: A total of 60 participants were enrolled - 30 prediabetic and 30 with type 2 diabetes. On Day 1 all participants received regular, conventional breakfast (Idli), snack (Bhujia) and lunch (Roti-based meal) prepared from common ingredients available in the market. On Day 2 all participants received the same food preparations as above, prepared using DiabeSmart Batter additive (Idli), DiabeSmart Bhujia & DiabeSmart atta additive (Roti) for breakfast, snack, and lunch respectively.

Result: Participants consuming DiabeSmart products showed exponentially less spike in glucose levels after 1 hour of consumption than participants consuming the regular products.

Conclusion: DiabeSmart, low carbohydrate food products were found to be effective in minimizing the spike in blood glucose than regular, conventional food products in diabetic & prediabetic participants. Therefore, the use of low carbohydrate DiabeSmart products can present an effective nutritional strategy for individuals with type 2 diabetes and those at the risk of developing diabetes. However, low carbohydrate diets should be tailored to individual needs and monitored more long term.

Takeaway: The clinical study supports the efficacy and safety of low carb DiabeSmart products for diabetics and prediabetics in regulating blood glucose levels, and highlights the importance of carbohydrate restriction in managing diabetes.
