Apart from a lower risk of steatosis, the researchers also observed a reduction of blood pressure and improved insulin/glucose homeostasis in mice with type 2 diabetes.
In response to chronically elevated insulin/glucose some cells lose control of their DNA regulatory genes--which is the hallmark of malignancy.
(e) First-phase insulin responses during the IVGTT, computed as the ratio of incremental areas under the curve for insulin/glucose from 0-5 minutes in mice treated with three consecutive once-daily doses of vehicle or 30, 50, or 75 mg/kg STZ.
The proper ratio at which IPG-A and IPG-P display the most beneficial effects on insulin/glucose homeostasis is still unclear, besides the fact that their contemporary presence appears mandatory.
Next, the authors again comment on a relationship I discussed in part I of this series, the relationship between chronic metabolic acidosis and insulin/glucose metabolism:
Indeed, several clinical trials have shown that compared to glucose or starch, isocaloric exchange with fructose or sucrose leads to increases in fasting insulin, fasting glucose, and the insulin/glucose responses to a sucrose load.
Insulin resistance (IR) was calculated as insulin/glucose ratio (IGR) and homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) computed from the following formula:
There was a significant decrease in the insulin/glucose ratio in those patients treated with fenugreek seed extract relative to the placebo group (0.89 [+ or -] 0.09 vs 1.06 [+ or -] 0.10 mUI mmol-1, respectively; P=0.044).
The wasting syndrome present in many TB patients suggests an impaired insulin/glucose metabolism on the basis that insulin is a hormone of universal action, the main growth factor in the human body, and glucose qualitatively the main fuel.
In multiple linear regression analysis, age, BMI, waist-to-hip ratio, LDL-C, HDL-C, TG, estradiol, FSH, and insulin/glucose ratio were assessed as the independent variables.
Masoro believes one way dietary restriction slows aging is through its effects on the body's insulin/glucose system.
