3After-Meal Peaks Defined The net rise that occurs from before eating to the highest point after eating.ADA Goal:<10 mmol 1-2 hrs after start of mealAACE Target:<7.8 mmol at peakEuropean Diabetes Policy Group:<9 mmol (to prevent complications)International Diabetes Federation:< 7.8 mmol 2 hrs after meal
4After-Meal Goals for Children Under 5 Years:1 hr. post-meal(<6.7 mmol Rise)5-11 Years:1 hr. post-meal(<5.5 mmol Rise)12 Years +< 1 hr. post-meal(<4.4 mmol Rise)

24Glycemic IndexAll carbs (except fiber) convert to blood glucose eventuallyG.I. Reflects the magnitude of blood glucose rise for the first 2 hours following ingestionG.I. Number is % or rise relative to pure glucose (100% of glucose is in bloodstream within 2 hours)
25Glycemic Index (contd.) Example:SpaghettiGI = 37Only 37% of spaghetti’s carbs turn into blood glucose in the first 2 hours.The rest will convert to blood glucose over the next several hours.

45Effect of Pramlintide on Gastric Emptying in Type 1 Diabetes BreakfastInsulin + PlaceboInsulin + Pramlintide4**~1-h delay3DISCUSSION POINTS:Pramlintide slows gastric emptying of the solid portion of a standard meal in subjects with type 1 diabetes.Gastric emptying is the rate-limiting step that regulates glucose delivery from the GI tract into the bloodstream.The effects of pramlintide, seen at the first meal, were no longer present at a subsequent meal.SLIDE BACKGROUND:Double-blind, randomized, crossover study (n = 11 males with type 1 diabetes).Participants self-injected their usual dose of insulin and 15 min later, self-injected either placebo, 30 µg pramlintide, or 60 µg pramlintide prior to the first of 2 meals issued.Study participants then ate a standard meal (a radio-labeled pancake and milkshake). Radio images of the stomach were obtained for the next 8 h.Data presented are mean SEM.Mean Half-Emptying Time (h)21Placebo30 µg60 µgSingle SC pramlintide doses: n = 11, crossover; *P<0.004;99m Tc labelled pancake; solid component measured Data from Kong MF, et al.
