HomeTo: High-protein diets and lifestyle modifications go a long way in combating obesity and its associated metabolic disease type 1 diabetes-but protein recycling fat burning and insulin action still need to take center stage in patients diets. While protein glucose and fat in the gut are regulated by the cell wall in normal animals the liver can break down and reassemble proteins back into larger high-yield products: protein fractions called NPs. The entire metabolic cycle including how proteins are made in the liver and reused as energy is not well known. What is known is that when these proteins are broken down the resulting products are elevated inside the body-above 1000 kcal (1 lb 20 oz). NPs may better be used by people with type 1 diabetes and could serve as biomarkers for strong therapeutic responses to a low-protein diet. Urologist oncologist Samuel Atlas MD director of the Fat Clinic of Johns Hopkins Medicine and his colleagues are considering protein intake weight loss resistance training and exercise.

ERASE: This mini-study was designed to provide a first step in the evaluation of protein consumption by people with type 1 diabetes for 3 months after which baseline data are collected through clinical trials. Exposure measurements nutritional evaluation and dietary intake of protein are to some degree equivalent between type 1 and type 2 diabetes with more than 95 of the population for type 1 living with type 2 diabetes. Continued analyses will need to confirm that protein consumption in normal conditions is equivalent within the and between-type diabetes populations.
