Summary of "The effect of acute hypohydration on glycemic regulation in healthy adults: a randomized crossover trial."

The aim of this study was to investigate the acute effect of hydration status on glycemic regulation in healthy adults and explore underlying mechanisms. In this randomized crossover trial, 16 healthy adults (8 male) underwent an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) when hypohydrated and rehydrated, after four days of pre-trial standardization. One day pre-OGTT, participants were dehydrated for 1-h in a heat-tent with subsequent fluid restriction (HYPO) or replacement (RE). The following day, an OGTT was performed with metabolic rate measures and pre- and post-OGTT muscle biopsies. Peripheral quantitative computer tomography thigh scans were taken pre- and post-intervention to infer changes in cell volume. HYPO (but not RE) induced 1.9±1.2% body mass loss, 2.9±2.7% cell volume reduction, and increased urinary hydration markers, serum osmolality, and plasma copeptin concentration (all p≤0.007). Fasted serum glucose (HYPO 5.10±0.42 mmol∙l; RE 5.02±0.40 mmol∙l; p=0.327) and insulin (HYPO 27.1±9.7 pmol∙L; RE 27.6±9.2 pmol∙L; p=0.809) concentrations were similar between HYPO and RE. Hydration status did not alter the serum glucose ( p=0.627) or insulin ( p=0.200) responses during the OGTT. Muscle water content was lower pre-OGTT after HYPO compared to RE (761±13 g∙kg wet weight versus 772±18 g∙kg RE), but similar post-OGTT (HYPO 779±15 g∙kg versus RE 780±20 g∙kg; time p=0.011; trial*time p = 0.055). Resting energy expenditure was similar between hydration states (stable between -1.21 and 5.94 kJ∙kg∙d; trial p=0.904). Overall, despite acute mild hypohydration increasing plasma copeptin concentrations and decreasing fasted cell volume and muscle water, we found no effect on glycemic regulation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A quantitative value of a measured amount of a specific food that is equal to the GLYCEMIC INDEX of that food multiplied by the carbohydrate content of that food.

Works about a study where participants are assigned to a treatment, procedure, or intervention by methods that are not random. Non-randomized clinical trials are sometimes referred to as quasi-experimental clinical trials or non-equivalent control group designs.

A numerical system of measuring the rate of BLOOD GLUCOSE generation by a particular food item as compared to a reference item, such as glucose = 100. Foods with higher glycemic index numbers create greater blood sugar swings. These numbers do not correspond to calories or amounts of food intake but rather, depend on the rates of digestion and absorption of these food items.

A positive regulatory effect on physiological processes at the molecular, cellular, or systemic level. At the molecular level, the major regulatory sites include membrane receptors, genes (GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION), mRNAs (RNA, MESSENGER), and proteins.

A negative regulatory effect on physiological processes at the molecular, cellular, or systemic level. At the molecular level, the major regulatory sites include membrane receptors, genes (GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION), mRNAs (RNA, MESSENGER), and proteins.
