Abstract

There is a great deal of controversy as to whether higher protein intake improves or worsens insulin sensitivity in humans. The purpose of the study was to determine the influence of a short-term elevation in dietary protein on hepatic and peripheral insulin sensitivity in twelve older subjects (51-70 yrs) with metabolic syndrome. Individuals were randomly assigned to one of the dietary groups: recommended protein intake (RPI, 10% of daily calorie intake) or elevated protein intake (EPI, 20% of daily calorie intake) for 4 weeks. Prior to and immediately following the dietary intervention, subjects were studied with primed continuous infusion of [6,6-(2)H2]glucose and [1-(3)C]glucose dissolved in drink during the dual tracer oral glucose tolerance test (DT OGTT) to determine hepatic and peripheral insulin sensitivity. Plasma lipids were measured pre- and post-dietary intervention. In both intervention groups: 1) hepatic insulin sensitivity as assessed by the endogenous glucose rate of appearance (glucose Ra), 2) peripheral insulin sensitivity as assessed by the metabolic clearance rate of glucose normalized to plasma glucose concentration (MCR) and/or the rate of glucose utilization (Rd) or 3) glucose/insulin AUC were unaffected by the diets. Moreover, fasting lipid was not affected by RPI or EPI. Our findings suggest that a short-term elevation in EPI with correspondingly higher branched chain amino acid (BCAA) contents has no detrimental impact on hepatic and peripheral insulin sensitivity or plasma lipid parameters in older adults with metabolic syndrome. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02885935; This trial was registered retrospectively (Study start date, April 01, 2013, date of registration, August 26, 2016).

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 14. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 January 2021.
All research outputs
#1,925,263
of 19,891,915 outputs
Outputs from BMC Nutrition
#37
of 311 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#40,443
of 279,636 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Nutrition
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,891,915 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 90th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 311 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.0. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 279,636 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
