Abstract: 

Background & Objectives: Diabetes is one of the most common diseases which is usually seen in modern societies. Due to the increased risk of the disease and its related complications, in addition to the harmless properties of sesame seeds, this research was aimed to study the effect of consuming sesame seeds on some biochemical factors in type 2 diabetic patients.
Materials & Methods: This clinical trial has been carried out on 60 type 2 diabetic patients who were randomly divided into two groups of 30 sesame seeds consumers (case) and 30 non sesame seeds consumers (control).The case group was given 60 grams sesame seeds per day for 2 months and the control group did not receive any sesame seeds. The patient information was collected by questionnaire. The fasting blood serum of patients at the beginning and the end of the testing were collected and the biochemical factors of this study were measured in laboratory. For the data analysis, two independent samples t-test and paired t-test were used.
Results: In this study, the mean
±SD (Standard Deviation) of the patients’ ages in the two groups, sesame seeds consumers (case) and non-sesame seeds consumers (control), was 72.5±40.52 and 11.6±00.56 years, respectively. The results showed that fasting blood glucose, HbA1C, cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL (Low-density Lipoprotein), ALT (Alanine Transaminase) and ALP (Alkaline Phosphatase) were statistically decreased after the consumption of sesame seeds (P<0.05).
Conclusion: According to the results, and by considering the sesame seeds harmless effects, it can be suggested that probably this plant is useful as a complementary therapy for treatment and prevention of diabetes disorders.
