Abstract

Background: Nutrient determinants of postprandial triglyceride (TG) are matter of debate, especially for type II diabetes. Objective: This study was performed to evaluate the impact of dietary habits on postprandial TG response in a population-based sample of type II diabetic patients. Design: One-hundred and forty type II diabetic patients (63 men/77 women, age 45-70 years) referring to the same health district, not on hypolipidemic drugs and without any other chronic disease, performed four TG profiles (at fasting, before, 2 and 3h after lunch) with a specific device (Accutrend GCT, Roche Diagnostics Mannheim, Germany) validated previously. Dietary habits were recorded by a dietitian utilizing a previously validated semiquantitative questionnaire. Results: Triglyceride values (mmol/l, mean±s.d.) were 2.22±0.93 at fasting, decreased before lunch (2.03±0.81), reached peak values 3h after lunch (2.73±1.11). Postprandial TG increments (3h after lunch minus pre-lunch concentration) significantly correlated with the intake (g/day) of animal protein (r=0.20, P
