Abstract

AIMS: There is no standardized protocol for measuring glycemic index (GI) that takes time-of-day effects into account. The software DegifXL2 and Medtronic-Minimed's CGMS and Solutions, makes the GI calculation at breakfast and dinner time possible. The aim of this study was to assess the enhanced data processing software (DegifXL4) enabling the GI calculation at breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner times. METHODS: The glucose levels of 20 healthy volunteers were monitored after they consumed either 50 g of glucose or one of ten alternative foodstuffs either for breakfast and dinner or for lunch or snack. Within the 9-day test period, 10 such meals were monitored in 3 replicates for each volunteer. Specifically, CGMS was used to monitor plasma glucose levels at 5-minute intervals for a period of 120 min following the foodstuff ingestion. RESULTS: Using the enhanced spreadsheed DegifXL 4, a total of 640 profiles were obtained and 491 (77 %) accomplished the criteria for further processing. The percentage of successful tests in each foodstuff varied from 57 to 87 %. CONCLUSIONS: The use of the new software DegifXL4 offers accurate GI estimates for foodstuffs eaten for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinners in three replicates. In combination with the CGMS Solutions Software is DegifXL4 an enhanced efficient and comfortable way to routinely measure GI values.
