The Way You Think About Food Might be Diffrent From Another Due to Blood Sugar Levels, Research Reveals

Do we really all think of a certain kind of food in the same way?

Apparently, the scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, don't think so. In line with this, they've conducted several tests to explore the issue.

In order to see if they differ from one individual to another after eating the same meals, the team considered the various blood sugar levels that people had after they ate, which is called postprandial blood glucose levels. In previous studies, it has been found that elevated blood glucose levels can pose a great risk factor for developing diabetes and obesity, which are epidemic.

As a result, they discovered that there is a big difference when it comes to the impact of the same food to different people.

According to CBS News, Eran Segal, the study's co-author, together with the department of Computer Science and Applied Math at Weizmann, has released their statement during a press conference claiming that the reason personalized eating choices are still more likely to induce healthy people than universal dietary advice is due to the huge differences that they found in the rise of blood sugar levels among different people who happens to consume identical meals.

In order to have an accurate report of lifestyle and food intake, the same group of authors that has published their findings on Thursday in the journal Cell, have gathered data on 800 study participants - making sure that although some had prediabetes conditions, none of them had diabetes - through health questionnaires, glucose monitoring, body measurements, blood tests, stool samples, and a mobile app. The information that was taken on almost 46,900 meals was measured at the same time.

Currently, the researchers are already looking for possible volunteers in Israel to follow-up on dietary intervention study for a longer period, which focuses on those people who had consistently high blood sugar levels and are at risk of acquiring diabetes.
