FASTING AND POSTPRANDIAL GLUCOSE AS CARDIOVASCULAR RISK FACTORS
Delphinol[R] standardized maqui berry extract reduces postprandial blood glucose increase in individuals with impaired glucose regulation by novel mechanism of sodium glucose cotransporter inhibition.
Extended postprandial hyperglycemia and high fasting plasma glucose levels are the major determinants of diabetes.
Overall, BTI320 was well tolerated and these positive findings suggest that BTI320 works by predominately suppressing postprandial glucose excursion, slowing down the rate of glucose excursion, as well as reducing the absolute amount absorbed, thereby preventing hyperglycemia without the risk of hypoglycemia.
Each subject undertook three test days (Figure 1) in a balanced order, separated by at least six days and no more than 21 days: one test day with a bout of exercise in the fasted state before breakfast (ExBr), one test day with similar exercise in the postprandial state after breakfast (BrEx), and one test day without physical exercise (CON).
Authors concluded their results to suggest that the sensation of a sweet taste in the mouth before food reaches the stomach has a role in acceleration of postprandial gastrointestinal activities, which may affect subsequent glycaemic activity.
The aim was to compare the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free T4 in fasting and postprandial state among children.

Regarding diet composition, increasing the dietary fibre content has been explored for dogs and cats as a nutritional tool to reduce postprandial glucose responses, but not always showing significant results (MASSIMINO et al.
One can also have after-meal elevation of blood sugar or postprandial hyperglycemia-medically called impaired glucose tolerance (IGT)-which may even lead to worse complications.
Duodenal contents reflux through the pylorus into the stomach is a physiological phenomenon that occur in the early morning, postprandial periods, and during endoscopy examination.
Using this algorithm, it would be possible to calculate the eAG in units of mmoles/L, which can be used to calculate the apparent postprandial glucose (aPPG), further allowing an estimation of its contribution to HbA1c.
