Table 3 Insulin sensitivity measured by euglycaemic-hyperinsulinaemic clamp in patients with IGT, at baseline and after 12 weeks’ treatment or placebo

From: Cassia cinnamon does not change the insulin sensitivity or the liver enzymes in subjects with impaired glucose tolerance

  Baseline 12 weeks p-value Baseline 12 weeks p-value
  Placebo (n = 8) C. cassia(n = 9)
60 min 6.3 ± 1.2 8.8 ± 1.9 0.012* 7.3 ± 1.3 7.8 ± 1.4 0.477
120 min 5.3 ± 1.8 7.0 ± 1.2 0.068 6.0 ± 1.1 6.3 ± 0.9 0.373
  1. Significant differences in insulin sensitivity within the groups were evaluated at 60 min resp. 120 min at baseline and 12 wk. with the Wilcoxons signed rank test. * = Significant difference within the groups between 60 min resp. 120 min at baseline and at 12wk., *p < 0.05.
  2. Values are reported as means ± SD.
