Increase In Dietary Protein Improves The Blood Glucose Response In Persons With Type 2 Diabetes | The American Journal Of Clinical Nutrition | Oxford Academic

Background: In single-meal studies, dietary protein does not result in an increase in glucose concentrations in persons with or without type 2 diabetes, even though the resulting amino acids can be used for gluconeogenesis. Objective: The metabolic effects of a high-protein diet were compared with those of the prototypical healthy (control) diet, which is currently recommended by several scientific organizations. Design: The metabolic effects of both diets, consumed for 5 wk each (separated by a 25-wk washout period), were studied in 12 subjects with untreated type 2 diabetes. The ratio of protein to carbohydrate to fat was 30:40:30 in the high-protein diet and 15:55:30 in the control diet. The subjects remained weight-stable during the study. Results: With the fasting glucose concentration used as a baseline from which to determine the area under the curve, the high-protein diet resulted in a 40% decrease in the mean 24-h integrated glucose area response. Glycated hemoglobin decreased 0.8% and 0.3% after 5 wk of the high-protein and control diets, respectively; the difference was significant (P < 0.05). The rate of change over time was also significantly greater after the high-pr Continue reading >>

    I was diagnosed with T2 last week after my a1c was diagnosed as a 7. Since then I have cut out the majority of simple sugars and carbs, using the Keto diet as a model. I've tested my blood sugar this week and it's still in the 130's fasting. Am I being too impatient? My doctor also gave me some samples of Farxiga, but I didn't take it more than a couple days because the side effects kept me from concentrating at work. I emailed him this morning asking if I could go on Metformin instead because my mom(she's T2) has used that with success.

    Definitely you'll probably want some Metformin, it's good stuff. Take it slow and let your body settle, don't worry too much about any number, it's the trend that's important.
    You might find that even with oral meds, diet and exercise you can't keep your BG down. Insulin is not a boogey-man. It's pretty awesome stuff. Don't be afraid of it. Don't let them wave it like a stick to scare you.

How Does Protein Affect Blood Sugar In Diabetics?

Approximately one out of every 10 people in the U.S. has diabetes, a disease that affects how the body uses sugar, also known as glucose. Careful blood glucose control is essential to manage this condition and reduce the risk of complications such as nerve damage, blindness and heart disease. Adding more protein-rich foods to your diet -- and few carbohydrates and fats -- may help balance blood glucose levels. Video of the Day Improved Blood Glucose Balance A 2003 study published in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" concluded that a high-protein diet helped lower blood glucose levels after eating and improved overall blood glucose control in people with Type 2 diabetes. Test individuals on the high-protein diet had a ratio of protein to carbohydrates to fat of 30:40:30, compared to 15:55:30 for the control group. Both groups consumed the diet for five weeks. Despite the positive results from this research, longer studies are needed to gauge the long-term effects and any possible adverse effects of a high-protein diet on diabetics. Direct Effects of Protein Many protein-rich foods contain minimal or no carbohydrates and only have a small effect on blood sugar levels. Thes Continue reading >>

    Does Insulin Cause weight Gain?

    Hello everyone, I hope you all have been enjoying your Labor Day Off or just your day in general :) I have a question for those of you who are taking insulin or have been taking it for a while now. I was put on Humulus - regular insulin and on Lantus - basil insulin. I wanted to know if these insulins cause weight gain. Are any of you on the same insulins as me? Please let me know :)

  2. diabetesfree

    Insulin has definitely caused me to gain weight since I started taking it a few years ago. One reason that has me convinced of this is because of a handful of times there has been some screw-up with my pharmacy and I went a week or more without any long-acting insulin at all. The result was almost immediate weight loss, which ended just as soon as I got back on the insulin. Even though I managed to keep my blood glucose levels pretty low through additional exercise and stricter control of my diet than usual, going off insulin always has the same result for me.

  3. Armourer

    I am one of those who says emphatically yes! I've been on insulin for 6 yrs; humalog (22 baseline, + sliding scale, + carb count). The carb count was added two years ago and for me was the answer to controlling blood sugars (BG). The Lantus is 100 units. In 6 years I've gained 44 pounds. Probably my problem is partly due to not eating enough, I skimp to much usually around 750 cal. and as close to zero carbs as possible. I don't exercise due to two back injuries, so that is part of it also. Yet my doc states that I'm one of those who gains weight from insulin. So beware. I can gain as much as 10 pounds in a week, then next week lose it. 1 year ago the doc added Victoza, a shot every day that is suppose to make one lose weight, say 40-100 pounds in 4 months. Yea, I've lost a whopping 6 lbs! Also FYI, if nobody told you change your injection locations with each shot. Nobody told me to do that. 1.5 yrs later I noticed that my left side had misallocation of fat, i.e., the left was fatter then the right. Bummer, took me about 2 yrs to correct the problem. Good luck! This site is fantastic for knowledge and support.

Too Much Protein?

Within the diabetes community, it often seems that protein is the forgotten macronutrient — getting less attention than the other two, carbohydrate and fat. Carbohydrate is scrutinized, of course, because of its effect on blood glucose levels, while fat is often viewed as a source of unwanted calories — or, depending on your perspective, as a good source of energy that doesn’t raise your blood glucose level. To the extent that protein gets any attention, it’s generally thought of as a good or neutral dietary component. But a prominent doctor is warning against consuming too much of it. Last week, The New York Times published an opinion piece by Dean Ornish, MD, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. Ornish writes that high-protein animal foods such as meat and eggs are responsible for many of the ills plaguing Americans, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and Type 2 diabetes. He cites a study published last year that found a 400% increase in deaths related to cancer or Type 2 diabetes among participants who got 20% or more of their calories from animal protein. This increased risk of disease and death, he writes, may be due t Continue reading >>

    Which WalMart blood glucose meter do you recommend? ReliOn-Micro or ReliOn-Confirm

    To cut test strip costs I plan to switch from the Freestyle Lite glucose meter to one of the Walmart glucose meters. However, I saw that they have two of them, 1) ReliOn-Micro and 2) ReliOn-Confirm, with the same price. The difference between them is not clear to me.
    1) First of all, do you recommend a WalMart glucose meter?
    2) Have you used any of these meters and what is your experience?
    3) Which meter do you recommend?

  2. MCS

    I use the $19.95, SideKick meter, blue and yellow box. It comes with 50 strips and a check solution. It has always been extremely accurate for me. Once the 50 strips are used up you throw away the meter and buy a new kit. The only draw back is does not do averages, it will scroll thru the 50 tests though. I am not concerned about averages its the here and now that concerns me.

    1) Yes
    2) Relion-Micro
    3) I use this and a OneTouch Ultramini. My experience has been that the Relion-Micro is just as accurate and tons cheaper than the OneTouch.

    It seems strange to be able to keep blood sugar levels in control throughout the day and have morning blood sugar high, right? I mean, it doesn't seem logical.

It's a common assumption and it would seem logical, but it is common for people with type 2 diabetes to have high blood sugar in the morning. Why? Because your body continues to produce glucose even when you don't ea ...

  • How Does Protein Affect Blood Sugar Levels?

    Urine tests may be done in people with diabetes to evaluate severe hyperglycemia (severe high blood sugar) by looking for ketones in the urine. Ketones are a metabolic product produced when fat is metabolized. Ketones increase when there is insufficient insulin to use glucose for energy. Urine tests are also done to look for the presence of protein in the urine, which is a sign of kidney damage. Urine glucose measurements are less reliable than b ...
