This abstract details the study presented by Dr. Osama Hamdy, Medical Director of the Obesity Clinical Program, at the Joslin Clinic and Director of the Inpatient Diabetes Program, on the effect of diabetes-specific nutritional formulas on postprandial insulin and GLP-1 hormones impact on postprandial serum glucose and free fatty acids. The intake of DSNFs results in sustained PP glucose control for 4 hours. This is achieved by stimulating insulin secretion and indirectly by stimulating GLP-1 secretion. The study concludes that the difference in their potency to stimulate insulin and GLP-1 hormones may be related to their different protein and amino acid profiles and fat content.
