Swedish researchers found that eating more than 59.1 grams (a little over two ounces) daily of while grains was associated with a 34 percent decreased risk to prediabetes or type 2 diabetes in both women and men combined.

The researchers evaluated the eight to 10 year incidence of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in relation to the consumption of whole grain. There were 3180 women and 2297 men aged 35–56 years old that took part in this study.

In addition to their finding about the link between eating while grains and decreasing risk for prediabetes, the researchers also discovered that:

  • The finding remained valid even after adjustments for age, family history of diabetes, BMI, physical activity, smoking, education, and blood pressure.
  • Risk reduction was significant in men but not in women.
  • The higher the intake of whole grain, the greater the decease in insulin resistance, which is a precursor to type 2 diabetes.
