A low-glycemic index diet combined with exercise reduces insulin resistance, postprandial hyperinsulinemia, and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide responses in obese, prediabetic humans.


BACKGROUND The optimal lifestyle intervention that reverses diabetes risk factors is not known. OBJECTIVE We examined the effect of a low-glycemic index (GI) diet and exercise intervention on glucose metabolism and insulin secretion in obese, prediabetic individuals. DESIGN Twenty-two participants [mean ± SEM age: 66 ± 1 y; body mass index (in kg/m(2… (More)
