- Target number of participants36
- InterventionsThe subjects receive in the duodenal as well as in the ileal study:
- an oral glucose drink in the morning and in the evening
- an infusion with glucose in the duodenum or ileum, in the morning and in the evening
- an infusion with saline in the duodenum or ileum, in the morning and in the evening
- Primary outcomeEndpoints of the research are differences in satiety, food intake, and changes in hormone concentrations between the conditions.
- Secondary outcomeDifferences between conditions in thirst or nausea.

- Brief summaryOverweight is a big and still growing health-related problem. For many years research has been conducted to gain insight into the effects of specific nutrients that may influence hunger related feelings and food intake. The small intestine has proven to be of great importance for the satiating effects of nutrients. Recent findings showed that infusion of fat in the small intestine lowers feelings of hunger and lowers energy intake. Little is known about the effects of carbohydrates (glucose) on the small intestine. It is known that the human body reacts differently to an oral glucose load in the morning compared to an oral glucose load in the evening. Possibly these differences can be partially explained by different effects of glucose on the small intestine. The aim of this research is to determine the effect of glucose in the small intestine on the secretion of hormones, appetite related feelings and food intake, and whether these effects differ between time of day (morning vs evening) and segment of the small intestine (duodenum vs ileum).
