The Effect of Late Night Meals on Fasting Glucose in Type 2 Diabetes Patients

2014-07-23 21:12:38 | BioPortfolio


High fasting glucose is a very common problem in type 2 diabetic patients. The cause is probably glucose production by the liver, known as the "dawn phenomenon". The investigators hypothesize that a late night meal can lower the fasting glucose level by early morning insulin secretion stimulated by the food. In this study the investigators intend to test the effect of different kinds of late night meals on fasting glucose in type 2 diabetic patients.

Large, hoofed mammals of the family EQUIDAE. Horses are active day and night with most of the day spent seeking and consuming food. Feeding peaks occur in the early morning and late afternoon, and there are several daily periods of rest.

Failure or imperfection of vision at night or in dim light, with good vision only on bright days. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A species in the family AOTIDAE, inhabiting the forested regions of Central and South America (from Panama to the Amazon). Vocalizations occur primarily at night when they are active, thus they are also known as Northern night monkeys.

Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.
