Implications of Elevated Postprandial Glucose and Nutritional Approaches for Postprandial Glucose Management with a Focus on Whey Proteins

At the 2022 58th EASD Annual Meeting held in Stockholm, Sweden, Nestlé Nutrition Institute and Nestlé
Health Science hosted the Symposium: “Implications of Elevated Postprandial Glucose and Nutritional
Approaches for Postprandial Glucose Management with a Focus on Whey Proteins” on September 19,
2022. The speakers were Dr. John Sievenpiper from the University of Toronto, Canada and Dr. Bo Ahrén
from Lund University, Sweden. Dr. Sievenpiper discussed the pathophysiology and clinical implications
of postprandial hyperglycemia, nonpharmacological approaches for PPG management, and how it may
impact CV/vascular risk, insulin resistance, and other co-morbidities with illustrations. Dr. Ahrén
discussed the benefits of using whey protein for PPG management as well as novel data for how whey
proteins and branched chain amino acids may influence postprandial glucose management.
