Individualized Diet Model Created for Bloog Sugar Level

News

If you want to manage your blood sugar level you may want to stick to an individualized diet!

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic followed more than 300 healthy people for nearly a week.

The scientists developed a model using a person’s age, lifestyle, and genetics.

The model was able to correctly predict how their blood sugar levels would respond after eating various foods 62-percent of the time.

This is compared to determining the response by only looking at the nutritional makeup of food.

The 327 participants were mostly from the midwest.

They ate a standard diet of bagels and cream cheese for breakfast and then ate whatever they wanted for the rest of the day.
