Early growth and postprandial glucose, insulin, lipid and inflammatory responses in adulthood
Current Opinion in Lipidology, 08/03/2012
Perala MM et al. – Recent studies suggest that slow growth during early life has an adverse effect on postprandial metabolism, and predicts higher insulin and triglyceride responses. These elevated postprandial responses might be one underlying mechanism explaining the increased risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes associated with nonoptimal early growth.
