Type 2 diabetes also known as adult onset diabetes which is a chronic condition that affects the way the human body processes glucose (blood sugar). Treatments include diet, exercise, medication, and insulin therapy. In this study, controlled participants were on a strict diet of a large high caloric protein breakfast, medium lunch, and a small dinner; while the experimental participants were on the same diet expect for breakfast instead of getting their protein from fish and meats, they consumed whey protein as their source of protein. Results concluded the participants on the whey protein diet were more satiated and less hungry throughout the day, with fewer glucose spikes after meals controlled to the controlled groups.
Previously, before doing research on this study my knowledge on whey protein was very minimal. I only knew of gym junkies whom always raved about their protein shakes with whey protein and since I, myself, am not a gym junkie, it never sparked my interest into doing further research on the topic. From this article and further research I have learned that whey protein helps to provide in aid for amino acids which further leads to building blocks for increased muscle growth. Whey protein also releases anabolic hormones that stimulate muscle growth and increase insulin, which is extremely beneficial for diabetics who lack the proper production of insulin.
