Reactie bloedsuikerspiegel op etenswaren zeer persoonlijk

Wat zal de bloedsuikerspiegel laten stijgen: sushi of ijs? Volgens een onderzoek door het Weizmann Instituut, verschenen in de uitgave van 19 november in het blad Cell, verschilt het antwoord per persoon. Een week lang werd voor deze studie continue de bloedsuikerspiegel van 800 mensen gecontroleerd, en wees uit dat de lichaamsresponse op alle etenswaren zeer persoonlijk was.

Moleculair verband tussen hoge glucose en stofwisselingsziekte

Wetenschappers aan de Johns Hopkins zeggen dat zij een verband hebben ontdekt tussen chronische hoge bloedsuikerspiegel en verstoring van de mitochondriŽn, de krachten achter de metabolische energie dat levende cellen begeleidt. De ontdekking, op 27 april online gemeld in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, werpt licht op de lang verborgen band, zeggen ze, wat uiteindelijk kan leiden tot nieuwe manieren om diabetes te voorkomen en te behandelen.

Nieuwe studie rapporteert dat marihuana gebruikers een betere controle hebben over hun bloedsuikerspiegel

Volgens de American Journal of Medicine hebben marihuana gebruikers 16 procent lagere niveaus van nuchtere insuline in vergelijking met niet-gebruikers. Regelmatig gebruik van marihuana wordt geassocieerd met gunstige indices met betrekking tot diabetes controle, zeggen de onderzoekers. Zij vonden dat gebruikers van marihuana een significant lager nuchter insuline niveau vertoonden en minder kans hadden op insuline resistentie, zelfs na uitsluiting van patiŽnten met een diagnose van diabetes mellitus. Hun bevindingen worden gerapporteerd in het huidige nummer van The American Journal of Medicine.

Low-glycemic diet shows greater improvement in glycemic control than high-fiber diet

Persons with type 2 diabetes who had a diet high in low-glycemic foods such as nuts, beans and lentils had greater improvement in glycemic control and risk factors for coronary heart disease than persons on a diet with an emphasis on high-cereal fiber, according to a study in the December 17 issue of JAMA. One dietary strategy aimed at improving both diabetes control and cardiovascular risk factors is the use of low–glycemic index diets, but there is disagreement over their effectiveness, according to background information in the article. David J. A. Jenkins, M.D., of St. Michael's Hospital and the University of Toronto, and colleagues assessed the effects of a low–glycemic index diet vs. a high–cereal fiber diet on glycemic control and cardiovascular risk factors for 210 patients with type 2 diabetes. The participants, who were treated with antihyperglycemic medications, were randomly assigned to receive 1 of the 2 diet treatments for 6 months. In the low–glycemic index diet, the following foods were emphasized: beans, peas, lentils, nuts, pasta, rice boiled briefly and low–glycemic index breads (including pumpernickel, rye pita, and quinoa and flaxseed) and breakfast cereals (including large flake oatmeal and oat bran). In the high–cereal fiber diet, participants were advised to take the "brown" option (whole grain breads; whole grain breakfast cereals; brown rice; potatoes with skins; and whole wheat bread, crackers, and breakfast cereals). Three servings of fruit and five servings of vegetables were encouraged on both treatments.

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center link blood sugar to normal cognitive aging

Maintaining blood sugar levels, even in the absence of disease, may be an important strategy for preserving cognitive health, suggests a study published by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC). The study appeared in the December issue of Annals of Neurology. Senior moments, also dubbed by New York Times Op-Ed columnist David Brooks as being "hippocampically challenged," are a normal part of aging. Such lapses in memory, according to this new research, could be blamed, at least in part, on rising blood glucose levels as we age. The findings suggest that exercising to improve blood sugar levels could be a way for some people to stave off the normal cognitive decline that comes with age. "This is news even for people without diabetes since blood glucose levels tend to rise as we grow older. Whether through physical exercise, diet or drugs, our research suggests that improving glucose metabolism could help some of us avert the cognitive slide that occurs in many of us as we age," reported lead investigator Scott A. Small, M.D., associate professor of neurology in the Sergievsky Center and in the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain at Columbia University Medical Center.

High insulin levels raise risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women

Higher-than-normal levels of insulin place postmenopausal women at increased risk of breast cancer, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University report. Their findings, published in the January 7 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, suggest that interventions that target insulin and its signaling pathways may decrease breast cancer risk in these women. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. Last year, approximately 182,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 died from the disease. The majority of breast cancers arise in women past the age of menopause. Obesity is a well-established risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer, but just how obesity and breast cancer are connected is unclear. Many researchers have assumed that the link is estrogen—a hormone that is known to increase breast-cancer risk and is found at higher-than-average levels in obese women. But obese women also have other hormonal imbalances that may play a role in triggering breast cancer. One such imbalance is elevated levels of insulin, which stimulates the growth of breast cells in tissue culture. The Einstein study is the first to prospectively identify insulin's role in breast cancer while controlling for estrogen levels. The multi-year Women's Health Initiative (WHI)—the largest study of postmenopausal women ever funded by the National Institutes of Health—followed health outcomes in more than 93,000 postmenopausal women. At enrollment, each participant donated blood samples that were stored for later analysis.

High-glycemic index carbohydrates associated with risk for developing type 2 diabetes in women

Eating foods high on the glycemic index, which measures the effect of carbohydrates on blood glucose levels, may be associated with the risk for developing type 2 diabetes in Chinese women and in African-American women, according to two studies in the Nov. 26 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. However, eating more cereal fiber may be associated with a reduced risk for type 2 diabetes in African-American women.

De rol van stress, sport, suikerspiegel bij buikvet

Buikvet is eigenlijk stressvet. Ik heb gekeken wanneer cortisol hormoon op zijn hoogst staat want deze jaagt namelijk ook je suikerspiegel op. De piek zit tussen 6 en 10 uur en dan daalt hij. Om 1/2 4 smiddags is hij erg laag. Door juist  koolhydraten te eten wanneer cortisol laag is voorkom je dus vetopslag bij mensen die fysiek de suikers niet meteen gebruiken voor beweging. Ook savonds na 8 uur is je cortisol laag.  Doe er je voordeel mee. Ik eet voor 12 uur dus geen suikers (granen, rijst, banaan) meer,  alleen appel, bessen, komkommer, kokosolie en eiwit (gekookt ei, kip, kalkoen of vis) etc. En roken verhoogt ook je cortisol en dus je suikerspiegel, daarom worden rokers die al een hogere suikerspiegel hebben juist wel dik van roken en mensen met een lage suikerspiegel niet.

Op termijn veroorzaakt dit opjagen van je suikerspiegel prediabetes dat zorgt voor de bekende schade aan je bloedvaten waardoor menig roker (en zeker vrouwen) hun pensioen niet zal halen. De combinatie van roken en diabetes is helemaal fataal. Zeker als je weet dat een rokende vrouw gemiddeld 16 jaar eerder een hartaanval krijgt (64 ipv 80 jaar) dan een niet rokende vrouw.  Sport is voor stressgevoelige mensen niet ontspannend en jaagt cortisol alleen nog meer omhoog, gestresste mensen worden dus door cardiofitness nog gestressder. Daarom had ik ook altijd giga honger na de sport, want suikerspiegel was opgejaagd, suikers op en dan giga dip in suikerspiegel door aanmaak van insuline. Iemand die gestresst is kan dus beter kiezen voor wandelen, yoga, sauna etc. Hoog stresshormoon (cortisol) betekent namelijk een hogere suikerspiegel en dus meer kans op vetopslag op de buik.

Ook nuttig om te weten, wat je smorgens doet met je suikerspiegel werkt 10 uur door in de loop van de dag. Kun je dus je suikerspiegel met eiwit, vet, groente en fruit mooi stabiel houden in de morgen dan hebt je daar de rest van de dag voordeel van. En zorg voor ontspanning, stress is de ergste toxine op deze planeet......en we maken hem zelf....

Dr. George Troxler’s Slow Starch Diet

Dr. Troxler has invested hundreds of hours educating others about this Slow Starch Diet, also known as the Low Glycemic Index Diet. His lectures are designed to teach people how to eat low-glycemic index foods. Glycemic Index is a measure of how fast the starch we eat changes into blood sugar. Slow starch has a low glycemic index and causes only a slow rise in blood sugar.

Low-carb diet reduces inflammation and blood saturated fat in metabolic syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a pre-cursor to diabetes, coronary heart disease, and other serious illnesses. Patients have long been advised to eat a low-fat diet even though carbohydrate restriction has been found to be more effective at reducing specific markers, such as high triglycerides. A new study indicates that a diet low in carbohydrates is also more effective than a diet low in fat in reducing saturated fatty acids in the blood and reducing markers of inflammation.

High blood sugar can hamper memory

In the journal Diabetes a research team from UmeŚ University and Stockholm University in Sweden presents findings that indicate that elevated levels of blood sugar may have a negative impact on the memory function. It was previously known that patients with diabetes run a higher risk of developing various forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. This increased risk may be caused by a combination of the risk factors for cardiovascular disorders that this patient group has, including high blood pressure, high blood fats, heightened inflammatory activity, and high blood sugar. Previously it was not know whether blood sugar alone could have a negative effect in people without diabetes, and it has also been unclear what part of the brain might be the most sensitive to high blood sugar levels. By analyzing 411 healthy people who took part in both Všsterbotten Health Examinations and the Betula Project, the research team has been able to established that elevated blood sugar levels probably affect a specific part of the brain, the hippocampus, and especially in women. The hippocampus is a part of the brain that stores memories, and it is often the first part of the brain to be impacted with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. The study provides key information that can serve as a basis for further studies designed to examine how elevated blood sugar can affect the memory.

Relationships of low serum vitamin D3 with anthropometry and markers of the metabolic syndrome and diabetes in overweight and obesity

Previously reviewed mechanisms include that 1) low vitamin D3, may impair insulin action, glucose metabolism and various other metabolic processes in adipose and lean tissue 2) fat soluble-vitamin D3 is sequestered in the large adipose compartment, and low in serum, 3) obese people may be sensitive about their body shape, minimising their skin exposure to view and sunlight (not tested). We showed evidence for the first theory but no evidence to support the second. In the current study, serum vitamin D3 was inversely related to weight, BMI and markers of TIIDM (large waist, raised HbA1c) but not to adipose mass nor to MetSyn per se.

Fatty Liver Risk Linked To High Glycemic Index Diet

Eating carbohydrates high on the glycemic index (GI) produced not only fatter mice, but mice with fatty livers according to a recently published study (1). For twenty-five weeks two groups of mice were fed a diet high in carbohydrates. One set had carbohydrates high on the GI while the other group received carbohydrates low on the GI. At the end of the study, both sets of mice weighed about the same, but the group that ate high on the GI had twice as much total body fat, twice as much fat in their blood and twice as much fat around their livers.
