The role of organic rice in treating the diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.

There are 20.8 million children and adults in the United States, or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 14.6 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 6.2 million people (or nearly one-third) are unaware that they have the disease. 

In order to determine whether or not a patient has pre-diabetes or diabetes, health care providers conduct a Fasting Plasma Glucose Test (FPG) or an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). Either test can be used to diagnose pre-diabetes or diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends the FPG because it is easier, faster, and less expensive to perform.

With the FPG test, a fasting blood glucose level between 100 and 125 mg/dl signals pre-diabetes. A person with a fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher has diabetes.

In the OGTT test, a person's blood glucose level is measured after a fast and two hours after drinking a glucose-rich beverage. If the two-hour blood glucose level is between 140 and 199 mg/dl, the person tested has pre-diabetes. If the two-hour blood glucose level is at 200 mg/dl or higher, the person tested has diabetes.

Diabetes Statistics 
There are 20.8 million children and adults in the United States, or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 14.6 million have been diagnosed, unfortunately, 6.2 million people (or nearly one-third) are unaware that they have the disease.

With so many people affected by diabetes, the American Diabetes Association has compiled diabetes statistics on the impact of the disease and its complications.

Rice for diabetes concerning patient

Rice is important carbohydrate source that may be the cause of diabetic and obesity. We focus on high iron rice with low glycemic index (GI). Two high iron rice lines were used to determine GI using 14 volunteers. The results show that, brown rice of no. 313 and no. 1000 have intermediate GI (53-58) and reduce LDL and triglyceride accumulation in blood. According to study effect of black rice bran capsule in order to maximize the benefit of rice bran from the black rice no. 1000. The result is significantly different from polished rice with glucose.  This suggest that complex carbohydrate of black rice and black-rice bran is slow down monosaccharide absorption that to be bad for diabetes.
