  • Mice
  • Since cancer cells depend on glucose more than normal cells, we compared the effects of low carbohydrate (CHO) diets to a Western diet on the growth rate of tumors in mice. (aacrjournals.org)
  • We found that both murine and human carcinomas grew slower in mice on diets containing low amylose CHO and high protein compared with a Western diet characterized by relatively high CHO and low protein. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Thus, we investigated whether low carbohydrate (CHO), high protein diets could sufficiently decrease blood glucose (BG) in mice to slow tumor growth. (aacrjournals.org)
  • carbohydrate
  • It's an unsatisfying explanation because the Kitavans eat a diet that has a high glycemic load due to its high carbohydrate content, low fat content, and relatively high-glycemic index foods. (blogspot.com)
  • Insulin lowers blood sugar, so it's often said that starchy carbohydrate is particularly important to type 1 diabetics to 'balance' the insulin they're injecting. (drbriffa.com)
  • pancreas
  • The pancreas releases a hormone called insulin when you eat so that the cells of your body can take the sugar from the blood into the cells for energy. (healthline.com)
  • diets
  • The study also showed that the Mediterranean diet is as high or higher in fat than other diets, obtaining up to 40% of all its calories from fat. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Although low-fat diets were recommended for heart disease, Mediterranean groups in his studies had very high intakes of fat, mainly from olive oil. (encyclopedia.com)
  • normal
  • If you receive a prediabetes diagnosis, it means you have a higher-than-normal blood sugar level. (healthline.com)
  • I traded sleep for espresso, authentic energy for Haagen Daz coffee ice cream and normal circadian rhythms for high speed caffeinated adrenaline rushes. (drhyman.com)
  • researchers
  • Researchers observed a few possible reasons for their findings - one being that people who drink any kind of pop on a regular basis tend to have similar diet patterns: a diet with higher calories, saturated and trans fat, lower fiber and dairy, and a sedentary lifestyle. (healthcastle.com)
  • risk
  • But at a high dosage, folic acid may increase the risk of certain cancers. (consumerlab.com)
  • This study revealed that a "high protein diet" had a direct effect on cardiometabolic risk factors. (medindia.net)
  • incidence
  • The paper presents a very Cordain-esque hypothesis to explain the high incidence of acne in Western societies. (blogspot.com)
  • diet
  • One of the arguments that some use to justify the presence of grains and other starches in the diet of diabetics, is that we 'need' these foods for blood sugar regulation. (drbriffa.com)
  • And, as has been noted, this approach is likely to help prevent highs and lows in blood sugar which are common in type 1 diabetic who base their diet on starchy carbs. (drbriffa.com)
  • This result is a revelation, especially in the light of a ubiquitous promotion of low "carb", high -protein diet for weight reduction and overall health. (medindia.net)
  • triggers
  • The single most important healthy habit all of us can adopt is to manage our blood sugar by decreasing the triggers that push it out of balance. (drhyman.com)
  • doses
  • While manufacturers go to great lengths to cherry-pick studies in which damage occurs only in high doses, research shows the amount of Splenda required to cause toxic effects is much lower than current guidelines allow. (greenmedinfo.com)
  • protein
  • This gene encodes a G-protein coupled receptor for gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP), which was originally identified as an activity in gut extracts that inhibited gastric acid secretion and gastrin release, but subsequently was demonstrated to stimulate insulin release in the presence of elevated glucose. (genecards.org)
  • lower
  • That's how insulin helps lower your blood sugar level. (healthline.com)
  • Among children and adolescents, a higher level of meat consumption was associated with lower SBP, DBP, and BMI, and greater height, suggesting that consuming an appropriate amount of meat is important for healthy growth at a young age. (biomedcentral.com)
  • So now we have the potential for good blood sugar control and lower insulin requirements. (drbriffa.com)
  • test
  • The hemoglobin A1c test , which is also called the A1c test or glycosylated hemoglobin test, measures your average blood sugar level over the last two to three months. (healthline.com)
  • If the blood sugar level reads 140-199 mg/dL after two hours, then the test indicates IGT, or prediabetes. (healthline.com)
  • Blood sugar control was assessed with a test known as the HbA1c, which provides a measure of overall control in the preceding three months or so. (drbriffa.com)
