Effect of a purified amylase inhibitor on carbohydrate tolerance in normal subjects and patients with diabetes mellitus.

Abstract

Slowing starch digestion by inhibiting amylase activity in the intestinal lumen should improve postprandial carbohydrate tolerance in patients with diabetes mellitus. Crude bean-derived amylase inhibitor ("starch blocker") that contains only minimal antiamylase activity, however, does not modify carbohydrate assimilation. To test the validity of the "starch… (More)
