Background : Diabetes mellitus is one of the most important metabolic disorders worldwide. As regards the anti-diabetic effects in different parts of pomegranate fruit, this study was performed to determine the effects of concentrated pomegranate juice (CPJ) consumption on blood glucose and lipid concentrations in type 2 diabetic patients.
Materials and Methods : This quasi experimental study was performed on 55 diabetic patients, among patients referred to the Kashan Diabetes Center. Patients were divided into two groups: CPJ consumption and control. An anthropometric, medical and 24-hour food recall questioner was completed. Fasting blood sample before and after study was collected to measure glucose, HbA1c, TG, Chol, LDL and HDL. The patients consumed 45 g/day CPJ for 3 month. Control group did not received experiment. variables were measured at the end of the study again. Both groups received the same diet and physical activity advice during the study.
Results : Cholesterol and LDL - cholesterol concentrations decreased in CPJ than control group but not significant (p>0.05). The mean glucose concentrations showed no significant change between CPJ group and control (p>0.05).
Conclusion : concentrated pomegranate juice (CPJ) consumption there are no effective on blood glucose and lipid profiles concentrations in type 2 diabetic patients.
