Whey Protein to Control Blood Sugar Spikes

Whey Protein Helps Control Blood Sugar Spikes

A new Tel Aviv University study, published in Diabetologia, suggests that the consumption of whey protein concentrate before breakfast may suppress post-meal glucose spikes in diabetics. According to TAU’s Prof. Daniela Jakubowicz and Dr. Julio Wainstein of the Wolfson Medical Center’s Diabetes Unit, Prof. Oren Froy of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Prof. Bo Ahrén of Lund University in Sweden, the consumption of whey protein before meals may even keep diabetics’ need for insulin treatment at bay. Blood sugar surges, or after-meal glucose spikes, can be life threatening for the 29 million Americans with diabetes. Diabetic blood sugar spikes have been linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, kidney failure, and retinal damage.
