Increasing Insulin Response In Type 2 Diabetics With New Protein Mixture

Diabetes remains one of the significant health problems to be tackled despite significant medical// advancement. It requires a multi faceted approach. A protein-based diet could help in improving resistance in Type II diabetes.

A recent study shows that consuming a protein hydrolysate and amino acid mixture with carbohydrates increases insulin production in type 2 diabetics, and could therefore help individuals control their blood sugar levels after a meal.

A team of researchers in the Netherlands tested insulin responses and the subsequent plasma glucose disposal rates in 10 men with type 2 diabetes, and nine healthy control subjects, after a carbohydrate drink. Next they measured the same parametres after adding a casein hydrolysate and the amino acids leucine and phenylalanine.

Results of the study showed that the plasma insulin responses were 299 per cent higher in the diabetics and 132 per cent in the control subjects after ingestion of the protein enriched drink and diabetic patients had an average 28 per cent lower blood sugar response after consuming this drink than the carbohydrate drink alone.

Studies in the past have also demonstrated the benefits of such a protein mix on insulin in healthy subjects, as well as subjects with type 2 diabetes.

Researchers say their next target is to investigate whether these findings are confirmed after a real meal rather than a test drink.

Diabetes on Medindia: Diabetes apart from being one of the most prevalent diseases in the world, also a disease that opens up a Pandora's box of many complications. No wonder it is a dreaded disease and people who are diabetic end up getting other medical problems as well.
