Question ID: 67737
I am looking for medical research written on post-prandial blood sugar
levels.  I read a piece about a year ago in (I thought) Diabetes Care,
but I can't seem to locate the article; I have sent a request to the
journal but not received an answer yet.  At the ADA in June in San
Francisco, there was a presentation by Drs. L. Blonde and J. Davidson
and I'm looking for a copy of the powerpoint or transcript - have a
request into ADA but haven't heard anything yet.  Thank you for any
help! (I realize this is a very specific question - I'm just basically
testing the service to see what you could find, I don't really expect
you to be able to find the specific article or powerpoint.)

Hi kellyclose-ga,

I was not able to find the specific articles you are seeking but I did
find quite a bit of information on Postprandial Blood Glucose. Unless
there was unique information in the presentation you referred to I
think the following links will give you what you need.
is the ADA Consensus paper on PPG and addresses the following

1. How is PPG defined? 

2. What is the relationship among PPG, FPG, and HbA1c? 

3. What is the contribution of PPG to the long-term complications of

4. Under what circumstances should people with diabetes be tested for

5. What are the benefits and risks of specifically lowering PPG in an
effort to achieve better glycemic control?

6. What additional research needs to be performed to clarify the role
of PPG in the medical management of diabetes?

In addition to answering these questions it cites and links to many
other articles and journal papers.

A search on PubMed, the online service of the National Library of
Medicine, returned over 400 journal articles related to PPG published
within the last 2 years. Without knowing if there is a specific area
of research you are interested in, I will give the link to the search
page and let you either enter "postprandial blood glucose" in the
search box or you may add other search terms to refine the results to
your needs.

PubMed search page...

I believe the Dr. L. Blonde that you mentioned is Dr. Lawrence Blonde,
as it appears he is quite the expert in diabetes, and here are links
to pages that might let you contact him if you would like to get the
transcript/PowerPoint presentation you were interested in if your
other queries fail.

Dr Lawrence Blonde...

There were several Dr. J Davidsons' who might be the other presenter,
but without more information I wasn't able to be sure which one to
refer you to.

I hope this answers your question. Feel free to request clarification
or additional information if it doesn't meet your needs.

Thanks.   I will look this over and get back to you.  I should have
let you know that I had the ADA guidelines.  The J. Davidson is Dr.
Jamie Davidson.

Thanks for all this info.  Is it actually possible to find out at the
ADA (American Diabetes Association) Conference in 2002 in San
Francisco who spoke on this topic (Blonde and Davidson, according to
my information) and how I could get their presentations?  This might
be too big a request for my budget.  There was an organization there
taping different sessions, but I can't seem to find that organization
on the Internet - I could buy the tape if I could track it down. 
Thank you again.

I'm assuming that since you've rated this question you are satisfied
with my answer. I did try to contact Dr.'s Blonde and Davidson but
have received no reply.

Let me know if I can help you further,
