Glycemic index, postprandial glycemia and cardiovascular disease.

Glycemic index, postprandial glycemia and cardiovascular disease. Several lines of evidence indicate that exaggerated postprandial glycemia puts individuals without diabetes at greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease. In large, prospective observational studies, including meta-analyses, higher 120 min post-load blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin (a measure of average blood glucose level over time) independently predict cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in individuals without diabetes. These findings imply that the glycemic nature of dietary carbohydrates may also be relevant. We aim to provide a clearer perspective on how the glycemic impact of carbohydrates may modulate development of cardiovascular disease. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current opinion in lipidology Pubmed

Glycemic index, postprandial glycemia and cardiovascular disease.


Abstract

Several lines of evidence indicate that exaggerated postprandial glycemia puts individuals without diabetes at greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease. In large, prospective observational studies, including meta-analyses, higher 120 min post-load blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin (a measure of average blood glucose level over time) independently predict cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in individuals without diabetes. These findings imply that the glycemic nature of dietary carbohydrates may also be relevant. We aim to provide a clearer perspective on how the glycemic impact of carbohydrates may modulate development of cardiovascular disease.
