Low glucose load, index diets may increase SHBG concentrations in postmenopausal women

March 27, 2017

Postmenopausal women may have higher serum sex hormone-binding globulin concentrations if they consume low glucose load/glucose index diets with low sugar and high fiber content, according to findings published in the Journal of Diabetes.

Simin Liu, MD, ScD, FAHA, of the department of epidemiology, Brown University School of Public Health in Providence, Rhode Island, and colleagues evaluated data from the Women’s Health Initiative on 11,159 postmenopausal women (mean age, 65.3 years; mean BMI, 28.6 kg/m2; mean energy intake, 1,617.5 kcal per day; mean total carbohydrate intake, 201.4 g per day) with available SHBG measurements at baseline (median serum concentration, 47.3 nmol/L) to determine the relationship between concentrations of SHBG and various measures of dietary carbohydrates.
