|We gave 50 gm of either glucose or sucrose in a cross over study to two groups of healthy men (n=36, mean age=20.6 ± 1.6) and women (n=35, mean age:21.2 ± 0.7). There are no statistical differences in GI of glucose and sucrose in young men. Although glucose administration did not result in different glucose levels between men and women, sucrose administration caused lower glucose levels in women compared with men. Since AUC (area under the curve) of insulin of women who took sucrose was not necessarily high, women may have higher sensitivity to insulin. upon the administration of sucrose. In fact, basic levels of blood glucose of all women were lower than basic blood glucose levels of men. HDL cholesterol levels were higher in women than men but LDL cholesterol levels were higher in men.
