Study of Genetic and Dietary Effects on Diabetes and Heart Disease Study
Fructose is a sugar consumed in large amounts by Americans. It is rapidly taken up by the liver and changed into fats called triglycerides by a process called de novo lipogeneis. Over time, increased fat in the liver and bloodstream may increase the chances of diabetes and heart disease.
As a group, people with ancestors from South Asia have high rates of heart attacks and diabetes when they move from the country to the city and eat differently. We will test whether healthy, lean South Asians make more fat from sugar compared to Caucasians who have a much lower risk of these health problems. If they do, they may especially benefit from reducing the amount of fructose in the diet.
