ere taking oral diabetes medications were randomly assigned to receive either Diabetinol or a placebo twice per day for three months. Each subject had mildly to moderately elevated cholesterol levels at the start of the study as well.

After 84 days, the group receiving Diabetinol showed a significant 19 percent reduction in glucose intolerance measured as peak changes in blood glucose over the four hours of a standard oral glucose challenge. The placebo group showed no significant improvements in glucose intolerance. A standard glucose challenge involves ingesting 100 grams of glucose and having blood glucose measurements after 30 minutes and hourly for four hours. Neither the investigators nor the volunteers knew who was receiving the Diabetinol or the placebo.

The number of Americans with diabetes has been increasing as obesity rates continue to rise. At least 90% of Americans with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, the body either produces too little insulin or the cells do not respond properly to the insulin and leave the cells starved for energy while raising the blood glucose level.

Earlier animal studies led researchers to test Diabetinol in humans. Twelve hamsters were treated with a special high-fructose diet to induce diabetes-like symptoms including increased blood glucose, insulin, cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Half of the animals were then given Diabetinol for 42 days. The other six hamsters were given no anti-diabetic treatment. At the end of the study, the Diabetinol-treated animals showed improvements in each blood glucose, insulin, and cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Taken together, these studies suggest that Diabetinol may help lower blood glucose levels and be beneficial in lowering the risks of heart disease and diabetic complications in people with type 2 diabetes.

An additional six-month study is underway to evaluate Diabetinol treatment in a larger sample of people wi
