Prebiotic fibre supplementation in type 1 diabetes


This study will provide important information about the potential for a dietary fibre supplement to improve glucose control (highs and lows in blood glucose) in patients who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. In this study we will randomize (like a flip of a coin) participants with type 1 diabetes to receive either the prebiotic fibre powder or a non-active ingredient (placebo). The study is 6 months long and you would have to complete some questionnaires and provide stool, blood and urine samples.
