Carbohydrates are major part of a meal throughout the world, they are simple sugars that determine post blood sugar levels that need attention in diabetic patients. However, a study suggests that nutritional factors other than the amount of carbohydrates significantly influence postprandial blood glucose control.
The study published in the Diabetologia , 2021 used a hybrid closed-loop system (HCLS) automatically delivers basal insulin according to an algorithm based on continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). However, there is very little information on the nutritional factors influencing postprandial glucose control in individuals with type 1 diabetes on HCLSs. Therefore, Dr Giovanni Annuzzi and his team conducted the first study to evaluate the relationship between meal nutrients and PGR in individuals with type 1 diabetes on an HCLS.
