Four-Week Low-Glycemic Index Breakfast With a Modest Amount of Soluble
Fibers in Type 2 Diabetic Men
Morvarid Kabir, Jean-Michel Oppert, Hubert Vidal, Francoise Bruzzo, Caroline Fiquet, Pierre Wursch, Low-glycemic index diets are associated with a wide range of benefits when followed on a chronic basis. The chronic effects,
however, of the substitution of 1 meal per day are not well known in diabetic subjects. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate
whether the chronic use of a low-glycemic index breakfast (low-GIB) rich in low-GI carbohydrates and a modest amount of
soluble fibers could have an effect on lipemia at a subsequent lunch, and improve glucose and lipid metabolism in men with
type 2 diabetes. A total of 13 men with type 2 diabetes were randomly allocated in a double-blind cross-over design to a
4-week daily intake of a low-GI versus a high-GI breakfast separated by a 15-day washout interval. The low-GI breakfast was
composed of whole grain bread and muesli containing 3 g
-glucan from oats. Low-GIB induced lower postprandial plasma
glucose peaks than the high-GIB at the beginning (baseline, P
< .001) and after the 4-week intake (P < .001). The incremental
area under the plasma glucose curve was also lower (P
< .001, P < .01, baseline, and 4 weeks, respectively). There was no
effect on fasting plasma glucose, insulin, fructosamine, or glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA ). Fasting plasma cholesterol, as

well as the incremental area under the cholesterol curve, were lower (P < .03, P < .02) after the 4-week low-GIB period than
after the high-GIB period. Apolipoprotein B (apo B) was also decreased by the 4-week low-GIB. There was no effect of the
low-GI breakfast on triacylglycerol excursions or glucose and insulin responses at the second meal. The high-GIB, however,
tended to decrease the amount of mRNA of leptin in abdominal adipose tissue, but had no effect on peroxisome proliferator-
activated receptor
(PPAR) and cholesterylester transfer protein (CETP) mRNA amounts. In conclusion, the intake of a
low-GI breakfast containing a modest amount (3 g) of
-glucan for 4 weeks allowed good glycemic control and induced low
plasma cholesterol levels in men with type 2 diabetes. The decrease in plasma cholesterol associated with low-GI breakfast
intake may reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular complications in subjects with type 2 diabetes.
