Background: The risk of cardiovascular diseases increase in diabetic patients. So, it is important for patients to achieve the optimal lipid levels. Nutrition including consumption of anthocyanins plays a primary role in reducing the risk of heart disease and hypertension. In this study, we assessed the effect of concentrated sour cherry juice (SCJ) consumption as a rich source of anthocyanins on lipid profile and blood pressure of type II diabetic patients.
Methods: In this quasi-experimental study 16 type II diabetic women with fasting blood sugar ≥110 mg/dl and LDL-C ≥100 mg/dl were recruited and consumed 40 g/day of SCJ for 6 weeks. Measurements of weight, lipid profile and blood pressure were done in baseline and after completion of the study. A 2-day food records was completed by patients so. The Wilcoxon test was used for statistical analysis. Results: Mean (± SD) age, weight, total cholesterol, LDL-C, systolic and diastolic blood pressure were 53.6±8.8 years, 72.8±14.9 kg, 213.9±27/0 mg/dl, 118.4±14.7 mg/dl, 129.1±15.7 mmHg and 81.7±8.1 mmHg respectively in the beginning of the study. After consumption of SCJ, a significant decrease (P<0.05) in weight, total cholesterol, LDL-C, systolic and diastolic blood pressure was seen. Changes in serum triglyceride and HDL-C concentrations were not significant statistically.
Conclusion: It is concluded that SCJ consumption may modify cardiovascular disease risk factors in diabetic type 2 patients.
