It has been shown that whey protein supplementation, when administered as a preload, reduces postprandial glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes. However, recent evidence suggests that chronic protein supplementation in Serum can aggravate insulin resistance in type 2 diabetic subjects. This presentation will attempt to address whether whey protein is useful or harmful for people with type 2 diabetes.
– Can excessive BCAA intake promote type 2 diabetes?
– Find out why whey protein could be problematic in those who have high triglyceride levels.
– Whey protein supplementation 15 to 30 minutes before a meal helps to stimulate the incretin hormone responses to obtain an advantage in the production of insulin.
– If insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes result in high levels of branched chain amino acids (BCAA), will consumption of protein sources rich in BCAA such as whey protein aggravate glucose levels?
– Can whey protein help reduce postprandial hyperglycemia?
– What is supplementation with whey protein that produces a greater secretion of GLP-1 and other incretin hormones?
– Can supplementation with whey protein reduce hunger by reducing gastric emptying time?
