Objectives: The present study was designed to evaluate effects of konjac glucomannan (KGM) supplement (3.6 g/day) for 28 days on blood lipid and glucose levels in hyperlipidemic type 2 diabetic patients and the possible mechanism for the reductions in blood lipid levels. Methods: Twenty-two diabetic subjects (age 64.2 + 8.4 years, BMI 25.5 + 3.2 kg/m2) with elevated blood cholesterol levels (fasting glucose between 6.7–14.4 mmol/L), but currently not taking lipid-lowering medication, were… Expand
Glycemic and lipid responses to glucomannan in Thais with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
In type 2 diabetes, pre-prandial glucomannan ingestion attenuated a rise of blood glucose without significantly affecting insulin levels, and long-term supplement of glu comannan to the regular diabetic regimen lessened post challenge glucose AUC and impeded the rise of LDL-C. Expand
Could dyslipidemic children benefit from glucomannan intake?
TLDR
Treatment with glucomannan of children affected by primary dyslipidemia is well-tolerated and effectively lowers total and LDL cholesterol in females and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, but not Apolipoprotein B in both males and females. Expand
Effects of Glucomannan Noodle on Diabetes Risk Factors in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome: A Double-Blinded, Randomized Crossover Controlled Trial
TLDR
It was showed that glucomannan noodles as a staple food can contribute to metabolic syndrome in adults predisposed to type 2 diabetes. Expand
Effects of high performance inulin supplementation on glycemic status and lipid profile in women with type 2 diabetes: a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
Inulin may help to control diabetes and its complications via improving glycemic and lipid parameters through improving gly diabetic status and lipid profile indices. Expand
Effect of plant sterols and glucomannan on lipids in individuals with and without type II diabetes
TLDR
The results suggest thatglucomannan and a combination of glucomanan and plant sterols substantially improves plasma LDL cholesterol concentrations. Expand
Effect of dietary supplementation with glucomannan on plasma total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol in hypercholesterolemic children.
TLDR
The results suggest that glucomannan may represent a rationale adjunct to diet therapy in primary prevention in high risk hypercholesterolemic children. Expand
Safety and Efficacy of Glucomannan for Weight Loss in Overweight and Moderately Obese Adults
TLDR
Glucomannan supplements administered over 8 weeks were well tolerated but did not promote weight loss or significantly alter body composition, hunger/fullness, or lipid and glucose parameters. Expand
Konjac Glucomannan Dietary Supplementation Causes Significant Fat Loss in Compliant Overweight Adults.
TLDR
This study supports the efficacy glucomannan supplementation to reduce body weight, body fat, and circulating cholesterol levels without the concomitant loss of lean mass and bone density often associated with weight loss. Expand
Glucomannan Inhibits Rice Gruel-Induced Increases in Plasma Glucose and Insulin Levels
TLDR
Glucomannan dose-dependently inhibited the rice gruel-induced increase in 30-min postprandial plasma glucose and insulin levels, and greater inhibitory effects on glucose and pancreatic insulin elevation were observed in the borderline group than in the NGT group. Expand
Effect of French maritime pine bark extract supplementation on metabolic status and serum vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 levels in patients with type 2 diabetes and microalbuminuria.
TLDR
The study findings demonstrated some favorable effects of PBE supplementation on glycemic control, serum VCAM-1 and total cholesterol levels, and microalbuminuria, as well as abdominal obesity in patients with T2DM. Expand

Konjac-mannan (glucomannan) improves glycemia and other associated risk factors for coronary heart disease in type 2 diabetes. A randomized controlled metabolic trial.
TLDR
KJM fiber added to conventional treatment may ameliorate glycemic control, blood lipid profile, and sBP in high-risk diabetic individuals, possibly improving the effectiveness of conventional treatment in type 2 diabetes. Expand
Beneficial effects of viscous dietary fiber from Konjac-mannan in subjects with the insulin resistance syndrome: results of a controlled metabolic trial.
TLDR
A diet rich in high-viscosity KJM improves glycemic control and lipid profile, suggesting a therapeutic potential in the treatment of the insulin resistance syndrome. Expand

TLDR
The results of this study show that GM is an effective cholesterol-lowering dietary adjunct. Expand
Beneficial effects of high dietary fiber intake in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
A high intake of dietary fiber, particularly of the soluble type, above the level recommended by the ADA, improves glycemic control, decreases hyperinsulinemia, and lowers plasma lipid concentrations in patients with type 2 diabetes. Expand

TLDR
The effects of RKM in comparison with pectin, algin and agar on lipid levels in serum and liver and on liver histopathology in rats were studied, suggesting that the increase of fecal bile acids, especially CDCA, may be one of the mechanisms by which RkM and the other three dietary fibers exerts a hypocholesterolemic effect.

Guar gum improves insulin sensitivity, blood lipids, blood pressure, and fibrinolysis in healthy men.
TLDR
A role for guar in the treatment of the metabolic syndrome in which insulin resistance seems to play a pivotal role is supported, supported by a double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study. Expand
Effects of Isomalto-Oligosaccharides on Bowel Functions and Indicators of Nutritional Status in Constipated Elderly Men
TLDR
Consumption of IO effectively improved bowel movement, stool output and microbial fermentation in the colon without any adverse effect observed in this study, suggesting that supplementation of IO into ordinary low fiber diets may be practical in relieving constipation in the elderly population. Expand
Management of Dyslipidemia in Adults With Diabetes
TLDR
Reduction of LDL levels should take priority over reduction of triglycerides in combined hyperlipidemia because of the proven safety of the statin class of drugs as well as greater reduction in CHD incidence. Expand
Cholesterol reduction by glucomannan and chitosan is mediated by changes in cholesterol absorption and bile acid and fat excretion in rats.
TLDR
Results suggest that G lowered liver cholesterol by a viscosity-mediated interference of cholesterol absorption, in contrast to CH, which appears to lower cholesterol through a different mechanism. Expand
Mechanism of serum cholesterol reduction by oat bran
TLDR
It is demonstrated that oat bran lowers serum cholesterol levels in part by altering bile acid metabolism, and the substantial increase in the proportion of the total bile acids pool that was deoxycholic acid is consistent with the hypothesis that oats also decreases cholesterol synthesis. Expand
