More than 382 million people in the world suffer from diabetes, predominantly type-2 diabetes.For these people, blood sugar surges - glucose spikes after meals - can be life threatening, leading to cardiovascular complications.A new Tel Aviv University study published in Diabetologia proposes a new way to suppress deadly glucose surges throughout the day - eating a high-caloric breakfast and a more modest dinner.

The combined consumption of a high-energy breakfast and a low-energy dinner decreases overall daily hyperglycaemia in type-2 diabetics, said the study.The results of the study showed that post-meal glucose elevations were 20 percent lower and levels of insulin, C-peptide, and GLP-1 were 20 percent higher in participants on the B diet compared with those on the D diet. Despite the fact that both diets contained the same calories, blood glucose levels rose 23 percent less after the lunch preceded by a large breakfast.
