Fiber can reduce the risk of diabetes

Dietary fiber helps in prevention and control of diabetes mellitus. In quantities typically eaten, whole grain fiber is protective against T2DM while fruit fiber gives little protection. Whole-grain consumption was associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Cereal fiber shows effects of gut microbiota through mechanisms such as: 1) improving glucose tolerance  2) reducing inflammation and 3) altering the immune response. So start eating whole grain foods like millets, whole pulses and legumes.
