Metabolic Response of Slowly Absorbed Carbohydrates in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

  • Provides an up-to-date systematic review on the effects of slowly absorbed isomaltulose on postprandial glucose metabolism in humans including healthy probands, impaired glucosetolerant subjects, as well as type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients

  • Highlights new evidence on the role of slowly absorbed carbohydrates for glycemic control in type 2 diabetes

  • Examines the metabolic response of slowly absorbed isomaltulose compared to rapidly absorbed sucrose comprehensively in type 2 diabetic patients

About this book


This SpringerBrief focuses on clinical nutrition research, particularly on the effects of slowly absorbed carbohydrates on postprandial glucose metabolism in type 2 diabetes. Slowlyabsorbed carbohydrates will cause gradual increases in blood glucose and insulin levels, and may therefore be effective as part of a treatment strategy for glycemic control and reduction of cardiovascular complications in type 2 diabetes.
