A new study by Prof. Daniela Jakubowicz and colleagues at Tel Aviv University reveals that skipping breakfast is not a good idea for diabetics. The study was carried out on 22 type II diabetics who averaged approximately 57 years in age.

For a period of two days the study participants ate the same meal for both lunch and dinner. On the first day of the study they ate breakfast and on the second day they did not eat until lunch.

On the day they missed breakfast the study participants were found to have extremely high glucose peaks after both lunch and dinner as compared to the peaks found after having eaten breakfast. Prof. Jakubowicz stated that if breakfast was skipped, decreasing the amount of starch and sugars at lunch and dinner would have no effect on decreasing elevated glucose levels.
