International Journal of Applied Pharmaceutics
Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and rice bran oil (RBO) on glycemic control and lipid profiles in patients with type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Methods: Ten patients with T2DM received 15 ml/day of EVOO or RBO. Levels of fasting blood glucose (FBG), postprandial blood glucose (PBG), total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C), and triglycerides (TGs) were
... des (TGs) were measured. RBO or EVOO was administered for 4 consecutive weeks. During a 2-week interval, the treatment was not administered. After this washout period, a crossover design was implemented by exchanging EVOO supplementation with RBO supplementation and vice versa for 4 consecutive weeks. Results: Changes in levels of FBG, PBG, TC, LDL-C, and TGs were not significantly different in the two groups. However, significantly decreased the levels of HDL-C were observed in both groups. Conclusion: RBO and EVOO had no significant influence on levels of FBG or PBG.
