Re: [IP] FW: pizza and hyperglycemia
Most curious about the study that you are involved in at the U of Iowa. Are
there any preliminary results you can share? What is the make up of the
group..education level...computer savvy level, etc.
I have found that 'knowledge' is the best treatment (tool) available over my
30 years with diabetes. I am always interested in how people can learn in
Good luck with evaluating the pump. It is a great freedom machine and can
help wonderfully. I hope you will find great helpers if you go on the pump.
In and around the university of Iowa I imgine there are lots of really smart
and savvy helpers. You will be in great shape if you do it.

> METHODS--On two evenings, each patient (n = 8) consumed a meal that was
> similar in macronutrient composition except that one consisted of
> pizza and the other was a control meal that included high
> glycemic index foods. The insulin regimen was held constant.
> RESULTS--Postprandial glucose levels were within the target range (< or
> mM) after the control meal. Although the initial glucose increase was
> for the two meals, plasma glucose continued to rise and was
> increased from 4 to 9 h after ingestion of pizza compared
> with the control meal (P < 0.05). This increase occurred even though
> insulin, glucagon, and free fatty acid levels did not differ
> CONCLUSIONS--Our data suggest that pizza has properties that
> accentuate and sustain postprandial hyperglycemia.
