Breakfast Leads to Better Blood Glucose

By Miriam E. Tucker ,


Think skipping breakfast will make your blood glucose better? Researchers say the opposite is true. In a study, 22 people who controlled their type 2 diabetes with diet alone or diet plus metformin were studied  on two different days: On one, they ate three identical meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. On the other, they ate only lunch and dinner. On the days they skipped breakfast, their peak blood glucose was 40 percent higher after lunch and 25 percent higher after dinner than on the breakfast days. Researchers theorize that the insulin-making cells in the pancreas have better “memory”  and therefore respond better when primed by the previous meal.
