Postprandial (After Eating) Diabetes Management Techniques – Nutritional Outlook March 30, 2011

Of the various approaches to dealing with blood glucose levels, postprandial (after eating) management techniques are among the more interesting. This does not deny the value of such alternatives as diet and exercise; stimulation of insulin production; improvement of insulin sensitivity; and increasing levels of adiponectin, a protein produced by fat cells that may play an important role in the development of obesity and insulin-resistant diabetes.

Venkatesh, managing director of the Gencor Pacific Group (Anaheim, CA). He cites studies showing that postprandial hyperglycemia is closely correlated to elevated glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1C) levels. HbA1C provides a measure of the degree by which hemoglobin is glycosylated. Glycosylation is the enzymatic process that attaches glycans to proteins, lipids or other organic molecules in red blood cells. This glycosylation, linked to postprandial hyperglycemia, “is irreversible, and it leads to vascular problems, increasing risks of cardiovascular disease,” says Venkatesh.
