Abstract: In order to see the effect of high carbohydrate high soluble fiber diet with different or unsaturated fatty acids fat, in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), twelve female patients were divided into two groups. For ten days the first group received a high carbohydrate high soluble fiber diet rich in unsaturated fatty acids (HCHFU) diet and the second group received a high carbohydrate high soluble fiber saturated fatty acids (HCHFS) diet. The study showed that both diets caused significant (p<0.05) reduction in the patients' weight, but there were no significant differences between the two diets in refer to their effects in the patients weight reduction. HCHFS and HCHFU diets reduced the level of fasting plasma glucose by 20.3% and 22.4% respectively. The effect of the HCHFS diets on fasting glucose level was significantly (p<0.05) higher than the effect of the HCHFU diets. The HCHFU and HCHFS diets reduced the plasma triglyceride level by 7.6% and 23.5% respectively. The level of triglyceride reduction was related to the starting level of triglyceride in the patients more than to the type of diet. Although, there were some effects of the diets on the different types of lipids and cholesterol, the study was unable to confirm any significant difference between the HCHFU and HCHFS diets in their effect on the plasma cholesterol, LDL-Cholesterol and HDL-Cholesterol.
