The research team also analysed 42 trials with 1789 participants where adults with prediabetes, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, were given more fibre and whole grains for at least six weeks.

They found consistent improvement in blood glucose control, cholesterol levels and reductions in body weight when adults with prediabetes, type 1 or type 2 diabetes increased their fibre or wholegrain intake.
