Eating white rice can increase the blood sugar levels. But how we eat white rice can make big difference. A study by Prof Jeyakumar Henry and published in the European Journal Of Nutrition found that the glycemic index (GI) of white rice is 96. But the GI index is 50 if it is combined with chicken breast, groundnut or vegetable oil. A GI of 55 or less is good and above 70 is high. Eating rice with protein reduce glycemic index. A lower GI score can be obtained when rice is eaten with the curd from crushed soybeans (tofu). Eating rice with meat also reduce glycemic index. The study found that before eating rice with chicken, it is better to drink soups rich with amino acids as they stimulate secretion of insulin and also helps the absorption of sugar by the tissues. Drinking soy or milk along with the meal reduce sugar in the blood after the meal, even if soy contains sugar.

Even though a person is obese, there is no guarantee that the person may develop type 2 diabetes (T2D). A study by Swedish and French scientists led by Eckardt Treuter and Nicolas Venteclef found that the epigenomic alterations are associated with inflammation and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Obese individuals may differ in developing insulin resistance and diabetes. Authors believe that the changes in epigenome could be an important reason for this difference. The study was published in the journal Nature Medicine.
The child may have higher cholesterol levels if the child has a family history of heart attack or type 2 diabetes (T2D). The family myocardial infarction is linked to the cholesterol levels of the children. The cardiometabolic risks will be developed in the child via family histories of father and mother and the roots are independent of each other. The cholesterol levels in the child are independently associated with a history of diabetes of both the families. Children were recorded with a higher total cholesterol and lower HDL (GOOD) cholesterol levels. An average one inch higher waist circumference was recorded in the child having diabetes family history. Diabetes in the family is linked to
A healthy diet and physical activity are important to keep cholesterol levels within a healthy range and to reduce fat buildup in the arteries. Lead author of the study is Nina E Berentzen, The Netherlands.
