Designed Experiment to Stabilize Blood Glucose Levels

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] A designed experiment was conducted to determine the conditions that would minimize variations in blood glucose levels when a Type 2 diabetic performs exercise. Although exercise is considered quite important for a diabetic, it can lead to abnormally low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) unless countermeasures are taken. The experiment shows how hypoglycemia was minimized by optimizing three factors: the amount of juice ingested before exercise; delay time between juice consumption and exercise; and amount of exercise.
