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 >>

    My husband has been suffering for the last 3 or 4 months with something that resembles low blood sugar or anxiety.He had a heart attack over a year ago and in the last 3 or 4 months has gone down hill. He started with feelings of jitteriness, nervousness, weakness. He would have it upon rising and intermittently during the day. We took his blood sugar--sometimes it would be 50;62;70 all upon rising. Later in the morning it would rise to 126; 140. They say he does not have diabetes and is now being treated with lexopro for anxiety. We are trying to find out if his primary problem is physical or emotional. We have looked at everything and I am now back after 4 months to low blood sugar. It like, "what comes the first, the chicken or the egg". What is the problem, low blood sugar or anxiety?

    Don't know, but I have been suffering from episodes of low blood sugar throughout the day which gets so bad I feel like I am walking down the street or around a supermarket in a fog with racing pulse and quite anxious. I'm not sure if the low blood sugar (which I try to solve by eating on time and one or two hershy bars during the day)come first or the anxiety. I have had low blood sugar for about 3 years now and it has been getting worse over time. Did have ome kind of viraln infection or some system crash which screwed upmy blood sugar and anxiety even more about 2 years ago. I do get unexplained anxiety and nervousness around large crowds and people and this seems to be when I am also low on blood sugar. Also I get aching legs in places and occasional weak sweaty legs if my sugar gets too low or my body is not handling the blood sugar or food too well.
    I'm still on the case and have booked into see another GP and a nutritionist. I'm only a 26 year old guy and it does effect my life. Whether I have emotional issues there which might be effecting my body or it is purely physiological I've yet to find out.

Whey Protein To Prevent After-meal Blood Sugar Spikes?

Controlling after-meal blood sugar levels is a continuing battle for many people with diabetes. Now, a small new study from Israel indicates that eating whey protein prior to a meal improves the body’s insulin response and helps control glucose levels after the meal. Along with casein, whey is one of the two main proteins found in milk. Eating protein is known to stimulate the production of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone that triggers the production of insulin. To determine whether consuming whey protein before a meal would improve blood glucose control after the meal, researchers recruited 15 people with well-controlled Type 2 diabetes who were taking only metformin or a sulfonylurea drug. The participants were randomly assigned to receive either 50 grams of whey protein in 250 milliliters of water or a placebo (inactive treatment — in this case, 250 milliliters of water) followed, 30 minutes later, by a standard high-glycemic-index breakfast composed of three slices of white bread and sugar-containing jelly. (The glycemic index measures how much a food affects blood glucose levels.) Blood samples were taken at 30 minutes prior to the meal, when the meal was served Continue reading >>

    An A1C of 8.3 is viewed as poor control. Still, things are relative. Most doctors accept an A1C of 6.5 for their diabetic patients. As someone said if your last A1C was 10, then an A1C of 8.3 is a significant improvement.

    The next step is to check an early morning fasting blood sugar, for which you'll need a doctor's order. It's very possible that you have prediabetes, if not diabetes 2. This is reversible with weight loss and diet modification. Your health insurance should provide a no or low cost visit to a nutritionist.

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 >>

    What is a dangerous sugar level?

    Here's my story. On friday, I went to my doctor due to feeling very ill..pain in hips and legs...excessive fatigue and a general unwell feeling with being flushed..hot/cold..all the time. They did blood work. I got a call on monday morning from an eye doctor telling me they wanted to set up an appointment for me to get my eyes checked due to my "diabetes". This was news to me because no one from my doctor's office said I had diabetes.
    I contacted a different doctor on wednesday to get a second opinion. I found out my blood sugar level at that time was 453. He did a urine test and it was loaded with sugar.
    They did a nerve conduction test on both legs and found I may already have some nerve damage going on in my left leg but the blood pressure cuff test on both legs showed good pulses.
    I went back to the first doctor and complained about NOT being told I had an issue with diabetes. I was then informed that on friday my sugar levels were at 466! Someone with diabetes told me that at 500 you can go into a diabetic coma!!! I am trying to find out if this is true because the first doctor I saw never called me after the blood work came back and I had to find out about Diabetes through an EYE doctor!
    The nurse for the doctor said he was going to send me a letter! What the heck????
    Since when does a doctor send a letter about a patient having a grave illness and is close to a diabetic coma???
    Anyone with information that can help would be appreciated. My email address is [email protected]
    I am now concerned because the medications I have been put on is causing me to be quite ill and is making my gall bladder irritated. I called the doctors office for advice but they have not called back yet. My sugar level today was 253. The meds are helping reduce the levels but causing other problems for me.

    You had dangerous blood sugar levels. I have heard and read that anybody with a blood sugar level of 400 mg/dL or higher needs to go to a hospital emergency room right away. The numbers will be brought down by insulin, usually initially by IV. With numbers that high a person is at risk for major complications, including problems with their kidneys.
    Were you told that you are Type 2? A lot of Type 2 Diabetics can learn to manage their Diabetes with diet, exercise and sometimes with oral medications too.
    Which medications were you put on? Some medications can temporarily cause stomach upset.
    There are many good doctors to choose from. If anyone is unhappy with their doctor, then switch to another one.

    What is insulin? Insulin is a peptide hormone secreted by the pancreas in response to increases in blood sugar, usually following a meal. However, you don’t have to eat a meal to secrete insulin. In fact, the pancreas always secretes a low level of insulin. After a meal, the amount of insulin secreted into the blood increases as blood sugar rises. Similarly, as blood sugar falls, insulin secretion by the pancreas decreases. Insulin thus acts as ...
