Fenugreek may slow progression of diabetes
Many people with metabolic abnormalities, including glucose intolerance and elevated blood sugar levels, are unaware they are pre-diabetic and more likely to progress to type 2 diabetes. In this study, 66 pre-diabetic men and women took 5,000 mg of fenugreek powder twice per day with 6.5 ounces of water, while 74 similar participants did not.

After three years, those who took fenugreek were 76 percent less likely to have progressed to type 2 diabetes than those who did not take fenugreek. Also, the fenugreek group had lower fasting and after-meal glucose levels, and lower levels of LDL cholesterol, while the non-fenugreek group increased in these measures. Insulin levels and resistance also improved for those taking fenugreek.
