Immigrants to a new country face many challenges when diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, a chronic disease with a complex treatment involving both medical and behavioral interventions. These challenges will depend upon the extent to which the patient has adapted to the new country’s social and...
An Examination of Sex Specific Differences in Glucose Responses Using the Exercise – Physical Activity and Diabetes Glucose Monitoring (E-PAraDiGM) ProtocolDownload
Background/Objective. Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) allow researchers to examine various aspects of circulating glucose profiles in response to exercise. Exercise studies using CGM in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) vary in regards to the type and timing of exercise, making it...
An investigation of dietary and physical activity risk factors for type 2 diabetes among Alberta youthDownload
Due to the increase in type 2 diabetes in the child and adolescent population, examining the lifestyle habits of youth has become important. The purpose of this research was to examine the presence of dietary and physical activity risk factors for type 2 diabetes among youth in Alberta and to...

Background Cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes are examples of chronic diseases that impose significant morbidity and mortality in the general population worldwide. Most chronic diseases are associated with underlying preventable risk factors, such as elevated blood pressure, high blood...
Background: It is well known that exercise can improve glycemic control in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the glycemic response to exercise is highly variable. One of the primary causes of variability in response to a single bout of exercise may be timing in relation to meals....
Effects of Low Fat Versus High Fat Cheese on Glucose Homeostasis and Hepatic Lipid Metabolism in Prediabetic and Type 2 Diabetic RatsDownload
Background: Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a disease characterized by insulin resistance and pancreatic beta cell failure. Lifestyle interventions, including dietary interventions, are the first line of treatment for this disease. At present, Canada’s Food Guide recommends choosing low fat cheese over...
Obesity is a major risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D). While altered systemic inflammation is associated with the development T2D, the effects of obesity on immune function are not well known. It is not known why some obese individuals develop T2D, and some remain healthy....
The common ATP-sensitive (KATP) channel variants E23K and S1369A, found in the KCNJ11 and ABCC8 genes respectively, form a haplotype that is associated with an increased risk for type 2 diabetes. Our previous studies showed that KATP channel inhibition by the A-site sulfonylurea gliclazide was...
Selected Health Factors (Pulse Pressure, Type 2 Diabetes) and Genetic Polymorphisms (ApoE, IDE rs6583817) Play Independent and Interactive Roles in Patterns of Cognitive Performance and Change in Older AdultsDownload
Objective: This gene x environment (health) dissertation focused on concurrent and longitudinal change in performance on executive function (EF) and declarative memory (DM) latent variables by normal aging adults. Specifically, we report three studies that tested the independent and interactive...
