Q Are the "glycemic index" and "glycemic load" two different things?
Zafgen also presented a poster on data demonstrating that treatment with ZGN-1061 improved measures of glycemic control, including insulin sensitivity and beta-cell function.
Recent research has cast doubt on the precise numbers many people rely on to keep the glycemic index (GI) of their diets low.
Findings included significant reductions in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), fasting plasma glucose, postprandial glucose, and insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR) compared with placebo, as well as normalization of glycemic status in 18.2% of treated subjects versus 0% in placebo group.
However, the study found only limited support that diets with a low glycemic index and low glycemic load offered protection against type 2 diabetes and stroke.
Objective: To find out the frequency of microalbuminuria and its correlation with glycemic control in type 2 diabetic patients presenting to a teaching hospital.
Recent studies suggest that expanded use of these tests has the potential to improve diabetes care, as these assays overcome the limitations of HbA1c in some patients, while providing additional insight into shorter-term glycemic control and improving risk stratification for diabetes and its complications.
Although pasta is made from refined grains, it's low on the glycemic index, a measure of how quickly a person's blood sugar levels rise after a food is eaten, the authors write in BMJ Open.
Unlike most 'refined' carbohydrates, which are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, pasta has a low glycemic index (GI), meaning it causes smaller increases in blood sugar levels than those caused by eating foods with a high glycemic index.
Not only emotions directly affect glycemia; emotional stress may disrupt the individual's eating habits, exercise programs, and daily routine, thereby altering daily diabetes management and impairing glycemic control with a patient's emotional needs and problems is an equally important component which may be used in a positive sense to enhance treatment and thus become an important component of therapy.
While recent studies have pointed to two aggravating factors foods with a high glycemic index and skim milk--whether dietary changes can help control acne remains up in the air, according to Andrea Zaenglein, MD.
