  3. 3. Tailoring the course of postprandial glycaemia to bread : On the importance of viscous dietary fibre for acute and semi-acute glucose tolerance and appetite

    University dissertation from mediatryck, Lund University

    Author : Linda Ekström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Postprandial glycaemia; appetite; prevention; antidiabetic food; inflammation; GI; glycaemic profile;

    Abstract : The prevalence of metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is rapidly increasing all over the world. Frequent episodes of elevated postprandial blood glucose have been associated with oxidative stress and subclinical inflammation, and the importance of a tight glycaemic control has been identified as an important factor to maintain health and prevent T2DM, obesity and cardiovascular disease (CVD).

  4. 4. Insulinogenic Effects of Milk- and Other Dietary Proteins, Mechanisms and metabolic implications

    University dissertation from Division of Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Mikael Nilsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Näringslära; Nutrition; Type 2 diabetes; Isolated islets; Incretin hormones; Food proteins; Amino acids; Insulin index; Glycaemic index; Hyperinsulinaemia; Insulin; Blood glucose; Milk; Whey;

    Abstract : The metabolic syndrome (type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypertension, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, dyslipidaemia, and hyperinsulinaemia), is increasing in prevalence world-wide. The progression of this syndrome proceeds through a step-wise deterioration of metabolic events where deterioration of insulin sensitivity appears to have a key role in a ?vicious circle? of hyperinsulinaemia/hyperglycaemia and insulin resistance.
