[Clinical study of the use of a deproteinized guar flour in the treatment of obesity].

PMID 6275647


The Authors have studied an experimental product (L. G. 140/S), based on GUAR GUM, to establish its effectiveness and tolerability as a dietetic support in the treatment of obesity. The clinical research work has been conducted on 21 obese subjects (18 females and 3 males) aged 17 to 58 and treated with a hypocaloric and hypoglycemic diet. This preparation has proved useful in helping the patients to conform to the dietary restrictions and/or in normalizing their intestinal transit. No objective or subjective symptoms certainly referable to this preparation have been observed. The administration of the product has been interrupted for precautionary reasons in some cases, since it was not indispensable. Considering the good results they have obtained in terms of tolerability and agreeableness of this product, the Authors conclude that it can be considered a useful support to the restrictive dietary regimen, which is still considered - together with physical activity - the only sound and effective remedy in the treatment of obesity.
