Een laag GI-dieet nog geen onderdeel van een voedingstherapie bij cystische fibrose

Research Question:
Less than 25% of people with cystic fibrosis-related diabetes mellitus (CFRD) survives the age of 30, compared to 60% of people with cystic fibrosis (cystic fibrosis) but without diabetes mellitus (diabetes). The use of a low glycemic index (GI) diet has shown improvements in glycemic control in diabetes and is now recommended as part of the dietary treatment in both diabetes type 1 and type 2. However, the implementation of a low GI Diet in a dietary therapy in cystic fibrosis is unknown. Summary the purpose of this article was to the use of a low GI Diet to investigate in CFRD.

There are grounds for a low GI Diet in a dietary therapy in cystic fibrosis?

Study Design:
This overview article contained 2 studies.


Results and conclusions:
The researchers concluded that the evidence was insufficient to the use of a low GI Diet in cystic fibrosis to recommend. But since there are indications that the use of a low GI Diet in diabetes type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes support, should be tested a low GI Diet as an intervention for cystic fibrosis.
