This study test whether a Continuous Glucose Monitor can pickup differences in glucose (in the interstitial fluid) during a dietary intervention using meals with either a high with a low glycemic load.
The aim of this study is to determine the suitability of a continuous glucose monitor to detect the impact of a dietary intervention on postprandial blood glucose levels in normal, healthy, free living subjects. We will compare a dietary intervention of meals with a high glycemic load (high post-meal blood glucose) versus meals with a low glycemic load (low post-meal blood glucose) in a cross-over study. In addition, the glucose profiles obtained both via venous blood sampling and via continuous glucose monitor following a standard carbohydrate load will be compared.

The aim of this study is to compare the effects of diets with different glycemic load (GL) on body composition and biochemical markers in overweight and obese subjects during a 12-month pe...
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...
This pilot clinical trial studies the feasibility of a low glycemic load diet in patients with stage I-III colon cancer. A low glycemic load diet includes foods that have low scores on the...
This study is designed to investigate associations of low- and high-glycemic load diets with biomarkers of hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia and inflammation, potential biomarkers for cancer...
Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by lifestyle changes in high-risk subjects. However, controversies exist on nutritional management of diabetes. Recent data suggests that glucose and insul...
High glucose and insulin concentrations seem to have a negative impact on bone health. However, the relation between the dietary glycemic index (DGI) and the dietary glycemic load (DGL), which has pro...
Dietary carbohydrate quality and quantity fluctuate but it is unknown which attribute takes precedence in vascular health preservation. We investigated all four permutations of glycemic index (GI) and...
A high glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) diet may stimulate acne proliferative pathways by influencing biochemical factors associated with acne. However, few randomized controlled trials have...
Obesity is a risk factor for gestational diabetes (gestational diabetes). Low-glycemic index diets attenuate hyperglycemia. We designed a study to determine whether a slow-digesting, low-glycemic load...
Although several studies have investigated the association between dietary Glycemic Index (GI), glycemic load (GL) and depression, results are inconsistent. This systematic review and meta-analysis wa...
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.
The quantity of measurable virus in a body fluid. Change in viral load, measured in plasma, is sometimes used as a SURROGATE MARKER in disease progression.
A course of food intake prescribed for patients, that limits the amount of foods with a high GLYCEMIC INDEX.
A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)
