High Intake of Whole Grains and Beans Pattern Is Inversely Associated With Insulin Resistance in Healthy Korean Adult Population

Diabetes Res Clin Pract. 2012 Dec;98(3):e28-31. doi: 10.1016/j.diabres.2012.09.038. Epub 2012 Oct 4.

Abstract

We investigated the association between dietary patterns and insulin resistance in the 3871 healthy Korean adults from the 2007 to 2008 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The whole grains and beans pattern was associated with lower prevalence of insulin resistance (OR for highest quintile=0.80, 95% CI=0.61-1.03, P for trend=0.013).
