The metabolic response to a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet in men with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The lack of negative effects, improved glucose control, and a positive nitrogen balance suggest beneficial effects for subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus at risk for loss of lean body mass. Expand
Impact of dietary habits on stone incidence
There is evidence that changes in dietary habits can reduce urinary risk factors and the risk of stone formation, but further randomized controlled clinical trials are necessary to evaluate long-term effects of dietary interventions on stone disease. Expand
Interstitial glucose level is a significant predictor of energy intake in free-living women with healthy body weight.
absolute glucose level is a significant predictor of energy intake in nonobese women, however, desire for a meal and hunger are quantitatively more important, emphasizing the importance of both glucose signals and nonglucose factors in within-subject variability in energy intake. Expand
Long-term protein intake and dietary potential renal acid load are associated with bone modeling and remodeling at the proximal radius in healthy children.
Long-term dietary protein intake appears to act anabolically on diaphyseal bone strength during growth, and this may be negated, at least partly, if dietary PRAL is high, ie, if the intake of alkalizing minerals is low. Expand
Postprandial glycaemic, lipaemic and haemostatic responses to ingestion of rapidly and slowly digested starches in healthy young women
Analysis of postprandial metabolism of two starches with contrasting rates of hydrolysis in vitro confirmed that starches characterized as predominantly rapidly digestible versus slowly digestible by the Englyst procedure provoke distinctly different patterns of metabolism postPRandially. Expand
Effects of dietary glycaemic index on adiposity, glucose homoeostasis, and plasma lipids in animals
These findings provide a mechanistic basis for interpretation of studies of GI in human beings and use of low-GI diets in prevention and treatment of human disease merits thorough examination. Expand
Food cravings during acute hypoglycaemia in adults with Type 1 diabetes
In people with Type 1 diabetes, acute hypoglycaemia produces a highly reliable generalised increase in cravings for food, particularly foodstuffs with a high content of carbohydrate, and the mechanisms behind this response remain to be elicited. Expand
High-complex carbohydrate or lente carbohydrate foods?
Dietary guidelines emphasize the importance of minimizing risk factors for cardiovascular disease while maximizing diabetes control, but review of the carbohydrate issue suggests that many cultures now at high risk of diabetes originally consumed starchy staples higher in fiber and with a lower glycemic index than eaten currently.

There is no evidence at present that low‐GI foods are superior to high-GI foods in regard to long‐term body weight control, however, the ideal long-term study where ad libitum intake and fluctuations in body weight are permitted, and the diets are similar in all aspects except GI, has not yet been performed.
