Organic chromium, such as found in brewer’s yeast, is much better absorbed than inorganic chromium. In this study, the effect of chromium supplementation in the form of brewer’s yeast on glucose and lipid profile of diabetic patients were evaluated.Materials and methods : In a clinical trial study (before and after) forty (32 women and 8 men) dyslipidemic diabetic patients without liver and cardiovascular diseases, 40-68 years old and BMI ³ 28 were randomly selected.
