The prevalence of pre-diabetes (PD) and type II diabetes (T2D) has risen dramatically in recent years affecting an estimated 422 million adults worldwide. The risk of T2D increases with age, with the sharpest rise in diagnosis occurring after age 40. With age, there is also a progressive decline in muscle mass starting after the age of 30. The decline in muscle mass, strength and function due to aging is termed sarcopenia and immediately precedes the sharp rise in T2D. Muscle mass is the largest...

When you lift weights you get stronger and your muscles can get bigger, a process we call hypertrophy, and these changes can mean a big advantage in certain sports. We all ‘know’ that we need to consume supplemental protein when we lift weights to get bigger muscles, right? But what’s the real (science-based) answer? A meta-analysis is a way of looking at all of the studies that have been done in a particular area of science. In our …

Objective We performed a systematic review, meta-analysis and meta-regression to determine if dietary protein supplementation augments resistance exercise training (RET)-induced gains in muscle mass and strength. Data sources A systematic search of Medline, Embase, CINAHL and SportDiscus. Eligibility criteria Only randomised controlled trials with RET ≥6 weeks in duration and dietary protein supplementation. Design Random-effects meta-analyses and meta-regressions with four a priori determined c...
