Motomiya Diabetes Clinic, Kanagawa , Japan. Dysregulation of glucagon secretion plays an important role in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes T2DM. Recently a new glucagon sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay ELISA became available that can measure plasma glucagon level with higher accuracy and simpler procedure than the conventional RIA method. Plasma glucose, insulin, glucagon and active GLP-1 were also measured. This study took place in diabetes outpatient clinic in Kitasato University Hospital and an affiliated outpatient clinic. There was significant correlation between fasting glucagon level and indexes of insulin sensitivity.
Sucralose affects response to oral glucose load in obese
The plant hormone abscisic acid ABA is present and active in humans, regulating glucose homeostasis. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of an oral glucose load on ABAp in type 2 diabetes T2D subjects. We chose two sub-groups of patients who underwent an oral glucose load for diagnostic purposes: i 9 treatment-naive T2D subjects, and ii 9 pregnant women with gestational diabetes GDM , who underwent the glucose load before and 8—12 weeks after childbirth. Each group was compared with matched NGT controls.
