Folate Supplementation Linked To Reduced Risk Of Diabetes

Folate Supplementation Linked To Reduced Risk Of Diabetes Folic acid is known to reduce the levels of homocysteine Proper dietary intake of folate in young adulthood was inversely proportional to the diabetes incidence in midlife, claims a new study. The findings of the study were published in the journal Diabetes Care. Earlier studies have shown homocysteine is associated with a higher risk of diabetes. Folate, which reduces homocysteine, is promising for the prevention and treatment of diabetes. Researchers from Texas State University had carried out a study to prospectively examine intakes of folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 concerning diabetes incidence in a large cohort study. In this 30-Year Follow-up Study, a total of 4,704 American adults aged 18–30 years without diabetes enrolled in 1985–1986 and monitored until 2015–2016. Dietary assessment was conducted by a validated dietary-history questionnaire at baseline and The cumulative average intakes of folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 were used assessed. Incident diabetes was ascertained by plasma glucose levels, oral glucose tolerance tests, hemoglobin A1c concentrations, and/or antidiabetic medications. The results of the study highlights: Around 655 incident cases of diabetes had occurred. Intake of folate, but not vitamin B6 or vitamin B12, was inversely associated with diabetes incidence Higher folate intake was also associated with lower plasma homocysteine (Ptrend < 0.01) and insulin (Ptrend < 0.01). Among supplement users, folate intake was inversely associated with serum C-reactive protein levels (Ptrend < 0.01). The researchers concluded that the Intake of folate in young adulthood was inversely associated with diabetes incidence in midlife. The observed association may be partially explained by mechanisms related to homocysteine level, insulin sensitivity, and systemic inflammation.

INFORMATIVE..USEFUL POST..

Useful information

Exclusive study and update A step to prevent and reversal of potential diabetics Reduction of homocysteine simply by folate supplements is affordable and encouraging provision for all layers of society This is as we all know helpful in hypertension and ASVD
