Speakers @ 32nd International Symposium on Diabetes and Nutrition

32nd International Symposium on Diabetes and Nutrition
Reykjavik, Iceland

ILSI Europe was pleased to participate at the 32nd International Symposium on Diabetes and Nutrition, organised by the Diabetes and Nutrition Study Group (DNSG) of the European Association of the Study of Diabetes (EASD).


The latest work of the Obesity and Diabetes Task Force was presented on Thursday 26th of June

SESSION: Preventive strategies in diabetes
SPEAKER: Dr Wendy Russell (Aberdeen, UK)
TITLE: Impact of Diet Composition on Blood Glucose Regulation

Short Summary
Dietary components have significant and clinically relevant effects on blood glucose modulation. An integrated approach that includes reducing excess body weight, increased physical activity along with a dietary regime to regulate blood glucose levels will not only be advantages in type 2 diabetes management, but will benefit the health of the population and limit the increasing worldwide incidence of type 2 diabetes.

The latest work of the Dietary Carbohydrates Task Force was presented on Thursday 26th of June

SESSION: Preventive strategies in diabetes
SPEAKER: Prof. Fred Brouns (Maastricht, NL)
TITLE: Impact of Postprandial Glycaemia on Health: Role in Body Weight Control and Diabetes Prevention

Short Summary
Post-prandial glycaemia (PPG) has been implicated in the etiology of metabolic chronic diseases. Studies suggest that the types of foods which elicit a lower postprandial glucose response are useful as part of an overall strategy for combating obesity, and associated chronic diseases, but the evidence for a role of PPG in these effects is considerably weaker. Therefore, more randomised controlled dietary intervention trials inducing effective low glucose response diets are necessary to draw more definitive conclusions on the role of PPG in relation to health.
