Background and Aims: Flaxseed is a promising alternative reducing the risk of diseases associated with obesity. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of supplemented bakery with flaxseed or flaxseed oil on type 2 diabetic patients Materials and Methods: Ninety type 2 diabetic on oral hypoglycemic (body weight, fasting, post prandial blood glucose, cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, VLDL and leptin) were recorded at base line, and after twelve weeks. Participants… Expand
Effect of flaxseed oil on glycemic control and inflammatory markers in overweight adults with pre-diabetes: A double-blind randomized controlled clinical trial
It is concluded that a 14-wk flaxseed oil supplementation may improve the weight and BMI with no effect on glycemic and inflammatory indices in pre-diabetic patients. Expand
Effect of medium -fat diets containing flaxseed, sesame seeds and their oils on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in rats.
Treating NAFLD rats with MFD containing flaxseed, sesame seeds and their oils led to significant decrease in body weight gain %,  organs weight%, peritoneal fat pad PFP, leptin, glucose, lipid profile including (cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-c  and VLDL-c), liver enzymes including (AST, ALT and ALP), while these treatments induced significant  increase in feed intake, HDL-c and antioxidant enzymes.

The potential protective role of flaxseed extract on ventral prostate in a rat model of streptozotocin-induced diabetes: A histological and immunohistochemical study
Administration of flaxseed extract attenuated the effects of diabetes induced structural alterations in the ventral prostate gland of rats and partially preserved the glandular structure. Expand


Effects of a Flaxseed-Derived Lignan Supplement in Type 2 Diabetic Patients: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Cross-Over Trial
Daily lignan supplementation resulted in modest, yet statistically significant improvements in glycemic control in type 2 diabetic patients without apparently affecting fasting glucose, lipid profiles and insulin sensitivity. Expand
Flaxseed Lignan Complex Administration in Older Human Type 2 Diabetics Manages Central Obesity and Prothrombosis—An Invitation to Further Investigation into Polypharmacy Reduction
It is concluded that FLC significantly increased bleeding time thus reducing the prothrombotic state, reduced central obesity gain as measured by waist circumference, and did not affect significantly the other dependent variables measured after adjustment for multiple comparisons. Expand
Lifestyle counseling and supplementation with flaxseed or walnuts influence the management of metabolic syndrome.
The results suggest that a low-intensity lifestyle education program is effective in MetS management and flaxseed and walnut supplementation may ameliorate central obesity. Expand
Flaxseed lignan lowers blood cholesterol and decreases liver disease risk factors in moderately hypercholesterolemic men.
It is suggested that daily administration of 100 mg SDG can be effective at reducing blood level of cholesterol and hepatic diseases risk in moderately hypercholesterolemic men. Expand
Dietary Milled Flaxseed and Flaxseed Oil Improve N-3 Fatty Acid Status and Do Not Affect Glycemic Control in Individuals with Well-Controlled Type 2 Diabetes
Milled FXS and FXO intake does not affect glycemic control in adults with well-controlled type 2 diabetes, and possible prevention of weight gain by flax consumption warrants further investigation. Expand
Meta-analysis of the effects of flaxseed interventions on blood lipids.
Flaxseed significantly reduced circulating total and LDL-cholesterol concentrations, but the changes were dependent on the type of intervention, sex, and initial lipid profiles of the subjects. Expand
Dietary flaxseed lignan extract lowers plasma cholesterol and glucose concentrations in hypercholesterolaemic subjects
Dietary flaxseed lignan extract decreased plasma cholesterol and glucose concentrations in a dose-dependent manner, and cholesterol-lowering values were correlated with the concentrations of plasma SECO and ED. Expand
Flaxseed supplementation improved insulin resistance in obese glucose intolerant people: a randomized crossover design
The results of the study weakly support that decreased insulin resistance might have been secondary to antioxidant activity of flaxseed, however, the mechanism(s) of decreased insulin Resistance by flax Seed should be further determined using flax seed lignan. Expand
Daily flaxseed consumption improves glycemic control in obese men and women with pre-diabetes: a randomized study.
Flaxseed intake decreased glucose and insulin and improved insulin sensitivity as part of a habitual diet in overweight or obese individuals with pre-diabetes. Expand
Effects of brown and golden flaxseed on the lipid profile, glycemia, inflammatory biomarkers, blood pressure and body composition in overweight adolescents.
Brown and golden flaxseed did not differentially affect plasma lipid responses, plasma glucose and inflammatory profile, although all groups (BF, GF, and CG) showed increased levels of TNF-a. Expand
