Table 5 A comparison of the glycaemic responses of the high and low amylase subjects to carbohydrate tolerance tests

From: Anomalous association of salivary amylase secretion with the postprandial glycaemic response to starch

  LA group HA group p value
(n = 5) (n = 5)
AUC (glucose) 363 ± 115 329 ± 103 0.635
AUC (maltose) 302 ± 50 324 ± 40 0.458
AUC (starch) 267 ± 64 159 ± 72 0.037*
  1. P values were calculated using independent t-tests
  2. LA low amylase subjects
  3. HA high-amylase subjects
  4. (AUC = area under the blood glucose curve. AUC values are presented as mmol/L*120 min). Data are presented as mean ± SD
