Low Carbohydrate Diet (LCD)
Blood Glucose Profile
Morbus Value (M Value)
Delta Ratio of Carbo70
Meal Tolerance Test (MTT)
Background: Low Carbohydrate Diet (LCD) and Calorie Restriction (CR) have been discussed for long. Authors have continued clinical research on LCD, CR and M value.
Subjects and Methods: Subjects were 67 male patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Methods were i) daily profile of blood glucose, average glucose, M value for CR meal, ii) same exam of i) after 2 days of LCD, iii) Delta and AUC ratio for 70g of carbohydrate (0 - 30 minutes) in meal tolerance test (MTT), iv) Triglyceride check for 12 days of LCD, v) analyses of correlation of biomarkers.
Results: Obtained data were as follows: average age 61.2 years old, median values are HbA1c 7.8%, fasting glucose 151 mg/dL, IRI 4.4 μU/mL, HOMA-R 2.1, HOMA-β 15.9, respectively. Median values on day 2 vs 14: average glucose 198 vs 151 mg/dL, M value 134 vs 14.4, respectively. AUC ratio for Carbo70 showed more separate distribution as insulin secretion ability than Delta ratio. There were significant correlations among HbA1c, average glucose and M value.
Discussion and Conclusion: These results suggested that LCD would have beneficial effects for glucose variability. Furthermore, it would become basal and reference data for the future research development in this field.
