Dr West added: “We believe the whey protein works in two ways, firstly, by slowing down how quickly food passes through the digestive system and secondly, by stimulating a number of important hormones that prevent the blood sugars climbing so high.”

Furthermore, Dr West said their tests were important given the growing number of people with diabetes worldwide: “As we see growing numbers of people around the world developing diabetes, investigating the potential of alternatives to drugs such as food supplements becomes more important.”

Meanwhile, PhD student Kieran Smith who analysed the data said: “People were able to stick to the regime and liked the idea of having a convenient, tasty, small pre-made drink that could be carried with them and taken before meals.”

While an interesting result, this does not mean that whey protein is a silver supplement bullet to diabetes management, rather, the team intend to do more.
