From the Paper:

"In the Nandini et al group from Mysore, India, the effects of fiber on intestinal and renal disaccharidases were studied in diabetic rats. Diabetes is characterized by high fasting blood glucose, urine glucose, membrane thickening in kidneys, and large volume of urine excretion. It was previously determined that dietary fiber helps to ameliorate some of the symptoms or to control the effects of diabetes. Thus the research group was interested in analyzing the specific effects of certain dietary fibers in diabetic subjects. They further wanted to compare the differences between soluble fiber (guar gum) and insoluble fiber (wheat bran). From these experiments, the group hopes to propose some mechanism by which dietary fiber helps to ameliorate the symptoms manifested in diabetics. "
