[en] Disturbances of postprandial glucose metabolism are now thought to contribute to cardiovascular disease. Postprandial glucose excursions can be affected by a number of factors, such as the types of carbohydrates ingested and the way they are metabolized. In Type 2 diabetes, factors that contribute to excessive postprandial glucose excursions include disruption of insulin secretion, insufficient inhibition of hepatic glucose production and defective glucose storage in muscle. A number of measures may attenuate excessive postprandial blood glucose excursions. These include a diet high in 'low glycaemic index' foods and treatment with drugs that improve or restore the hormonal response (e.g. the sulphonylureas and the newer beta-cell mediated insulinotropic drugs such as repaglinide), that improve insulin sensitivity or that delay gastric emptying.
