Effect of Dietary Fat When Eaten With Fructose Versus Glucose

2014-08-27 03:16:13 | BioPortfolio


This study is designed to test the effects on liver fat of varying fat intake in the presence of fructose or glucose. We hypothesize that higher dietary fat when eaten with fructose as compared to glucose will increase the amount of hepatic lipid as measured by magnetic resonance spectroscopy.


After 2 screening visits including an exercise test, DEXA and CT scan, qualifiers begin a 7 day diet with 20% fat, 65% carbohydrate (with 20% glucose) and 15 % protein. Participants consume 2 meals per day at PBRC with lunch and weekend meals packed to go. Following a test day, participants are randomized to one of 3 diet assignments and then test again:

1)20% fat, 65% carbohydrate (with 20% glucose beverage), 15% protein 2)40% fat, 45% carbohydrate (with 20% glucose beverage), 15% protein 3)40% fat, 45% carbohydrate (with 20% fructose beverage), 15% protein On Day 7 and again 14 days later participants have labs, an oral Glucose tolerance test, hepatic and intramuscular lipid measures by MRS, vital signs and waist measurement.
