This review looked at literature relating to benefits of chromium supplementation on metabolic parameters of subjects with type 2 DM. Twenty-eight studies reported fasting plasma glucose (FPG), insulin, hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) and homeostatic model assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) as an outcome measure. Results revealed significant reduction in FPG, insulin level, HbA1C and HOMA-IR after chromium supplementation.
