There was a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine
(5/11/00) that indicated that high fiber intake may be beneficial to Type 2
diabetics. I believe that the benefits were in the neighborhood of 10%.
Nothing that I saw was related to Type 1 diabetics at all.


The Anderson group and study related more to the lowering of cholesterol rather than glucose.  It was a 'found' side benefit that glucose was also lowered.  Most likely from a more rapid movement through the stomach.
