Introduction: Type 2 diabetes is regarded as the most common and the most important metabolic disease which is progressively increasing in different societies. In this study, the effect of apple vinegar on lipid profiles and anthropometric indices was examined in Type 2 diabetes patients with dyslipidemia. Methods: Sixty-two Type 2 diabetic patients with dyslipidemia were randomly assigned into a control (n=30) and an experimental group(n=32). The experimental group was instructed to use 10 cc of apple vinegar soluble in a glass of water two times a day 1 hr before each meal for 8 weeks. Results: The participants’ serum lipid profiles( Cholesterol, TG,LDL and HDL) and also anthropometric indices(Weight, Height and Waist Circumference) were measured before and after the intervention. Finally, in spite of a reducing trend in cholesterol and LDL in apple vinegar group, no significant differences were observed between the two groups (pvalue>0/05). Conclusion: The present study revealed that consuming 20 cc of apple vinegar daily had no effect on serum lipoprotein profiles and anthropometric indices in Type 2 diabetes patients with dyslipidemia.
