Summary

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.

Description

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.

Dietary Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load Are Positively Associated with Oxidative Stress among Premenopausal Women.

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.

Maternal high-fat diet associated with altered gene expression, DNA methylation, and obesity risk in mouse offspring.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
