Soluble fibre may improve glucose control

About a tablespoon of a supplement would help people with type 2 diabetes, says researcher

People with type 2 diabetes who take soluble fibre supplements have slightly lower blood sugar than their peers who don't add this type of fibre to their diets, a research review has found.

Researchers focused on supplements containing viscous fibre — a type of soluble fibre that forms a thick gel when mixed with water.
