PROFILE: My interests are how different types and amounts of carbohydrates (sugars, starch, dietary fibre) influence systemic metabolism with particular reference to insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes and hyperlipidaemia.
Dr. Wolever received his medical training in Oxford University, England, a PhD in Nutrition from the University of Toronto in 1986 and a Doctorate in Medicine from Oxford University in 1993. He is presently Professor and Acting Chair of the Department of Nutritional Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, and on active staff in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto. He is a recognized national and international expert in the area of dietary carbohydrates, and was consultant for the FAO/WHO's 1998 report on dietary carbohydrates. He was an expert panel member for the Canadian Diabetes Association's (CDA) Clinical Practice Guidelines, published in 1998, and is a member of the current expert panel which is revising these guidelines. His major research interests are how different types and amounts of carbohydrates (sugars, starch, dietary fiber) influence systemic metabolism with particular reference to insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes and hyperlipidaemia. His research expertise includes: the assessment of dietary intakes, especially of dietary fiber, glycaemic index and glycaemic load; metabolic assessment of human subjects; determination of the glycaemic index of foods; and clinical trials with extensive experience in coordinating central laboratory facilities and organizing international laboratory cross-validation programs.
