So, the study was aimed for the investigation of mode of action with effects of various fractions on postprandial hyperglycemia.
All stair-climbing trials reduced peak (30 min) postprandial blood glucose levels compared to the control (Figure 2), in a dose dependent manner [mean[DELTA] for 1 min = -12 (31), p = 0.026; 3 min = -15 (25), p = 0.003; 10 min = 35 (32) mg/dL, p < 0.001, Cohen's d = 0.4-1.1].
"Sarcopenia, the age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and function, is partly the result of an impaired activation of postprandial muscle protein synthesis by anabolic stimuli [i.e., amino acids (AAs) and insulin].
In this study, the difference on the glycaemic variability, based on preprandial to postprandial glucose excursions at all meals was also not statistically significant.
Studies demonstrate that aspart has a more rapid rate of absorption [20-24], more stable postprandial control [10, 11, 25-27], and lower rates of fibrillation and occlusion [10, 28-31] for use in insulin pumps compared with lispro.
As mentioned before, gastric emptying establishes a bidirectional relationship with glycemic levels: glycemia influences gastric emptying, while the latter may also influence the value of postprandial glycemia.
(40-43) The Honolulu Heart Program showed that the risk of a fatal coronary event increased progressively with rising 1-hour postprandial glucose, (44) while the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging showed a dramatic rise in all-cause mortality for 2-hour PPG >200 mg/dL.
AIM: The impetus of our study was to investigate the effects of a nutritional supplement Delphinol[R], an extract of maqui berries (Aristotelia chilensis) standardised to [greater than or equal to] 25% delphinidins and [greater than or equal to] 35% total anthocyanins, on postprandial blood glucose and insulin levels and identify the physiologic mechanism involved.
In this context, it was planned to undertake a pilot study to identify if the timing of sampling, fasting or postprandial status, makes any difference in the thyroid function test results in children.
8mmol/L(2-hour postprandial blood glucose) in spite of increasing insulin dosage (Table-I).
Dietary intervention and postprandial studies in humans have also showed protective effects against oxidative stress and inflammation [7-11].
