Study Title: Diogenes, A randomised controlled trial comparing the effect of reduced-fat diets varying in glycaemic index (high vs. low) and protein content (high vs. normal) on bodyweight in overweight and obese subjects after an initial weight loss.
DiOGenes is a randomised controlled dietary intervention study in obese/overweight families (adults and children) in 8 different European countries, testing the efficacy and safety of diets differing in Glycaemic Index (GI) and protein content.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

This study is a randomized clinical trial, which will follow and evaluate 120 kidney transplant recipients over one year. There will be two groups: a control group and the intervention gro...
To investigate the hypothesis that reducing the glycemic load of the diet will improve changes in body composition and cardio-vascular risk factors. The study compares a conventional reduc...
The Scientific Premise of this study is that the high level of obesity displayed by African American (AA) women is due to the ability to secrete large amounts of insulin when sugary foods ...
This study aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of increased protein ingestion, particularly when coupled with a low glycaemic index (GI) to reduce biomarkers related to high risk of diab...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes are health conditions that are strongly influenced by a person's diet. Although the best diet to prevent CVD and diabetes is uncertain, reducing i...
To examine whether a low-glycemic index (LGI) diet improves a set of plasma metabolites related to different metabolic diseases and compared to a high-glycemic index (HGI) diet and a low-fat (LF) diet...
To examine whether a low-carbohydrate, high unsaturated/low saturated fat diet (LC) improves glycemic control and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in overweight and obese patients with type 2...
Diets with a high glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) have been hypothesized to increase oxidative stress, but the limited human studies are inconsistent.
Carbohydrate intake affects postprandial glucose levels and insulin response, which plays a role in carcinogenesis. The relationship between carbohydrate intake, dietary glycemic index (GI) and glycem...
We investigated maternal obesity in inbred SM/J mice by assigning females to a high-fat diet or a low-fat diet at weaning, mating them to low-fat-fed males, cross-fostering the offspring to low-fat-fe...
A course of food intake prescribed for patients, that limits the amount of foods with a high GLYCEMIC INDEX.
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.
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 course of food intake that is high in FATS and low in CARBOHYDRATES. This diet provides sufficient PROTEINS for growth but insufficient amount of carbohydrates for the energy needs of the body. A ketogenic diet generates 80-90% of caloric requirements from fats and the remainder from proteins.
Liquid chromatographic techniques which feature high inlet pressures, high sensitivity, and high speed.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
