Glycemic Index and CVD: a Crossover Feeding Study

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Collaborators:
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
Charles H. Hood Foundation
Information provided by:
Boston Children’s Hospital
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00141076
First received: August 31, 2005
Last updated: August 27, 2010
Last verified: August 2010
  Purpose
This study will compare the physiological effects of two isoenergetic, nutrient-controlled diets that differ in glycemic index. The diets will be studied in obese adults in a 10-day crossover feeding trial.

Condition Intervention
Obesity Behavioral: low vs high glycemic index diet

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Glycemic Index, Obesity, Insulin Resistance and CVD Risk, Part 2

Further study details as provided by Boston Children’s Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Insulin sensitivity as measured by FS-IVGTT

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • CVD risk factors
  • Postprandial studies of oxidative stress
  • Thermic effect of food

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: October 2003
Study Completion Date: July 2006
Detailed Description:
This study will compare the physiological effects of two isoenergetic, nutrient-controlled diets that differ in glycemic index. The diets will be studied in obese male adults in a 10-day crossover feeding trial. Hypothesis: Obese subjects will show improvements in clinical endpoints associated with risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) after consuming a controlled low (compared to high) glycemic index diet for 10 days. 1º endpoint: insulin sensitivity as measured by the modified Frequently Sampled Intravenous Glucose Tolerance Test (FSIVGTT). 2º endpoints: CVD risk factors; postprandial studies of oxidative stress; thermic effect of food.
