Diabetics needed for oats trial9th January 2009
Researchers in Scotland are looking for volunteers to help them see how the consumption of oats could aid sufferers of type 2 diabetes as part of a £200,000 trial.
The study's leader Professor Sandra MacRury, clinical professor at the UHI Department of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Science in Inverness, said: "The aim is to develop new dietary plans which could improve diabetes control, delay the need for people with type 2 diabetes to start tablets or insulin to control their blood sugar, and potentially reduce the risk of some of the complications of diabetes."
