  2. 2. Islet glucose metabolism and insulin release in two animal models of glucose intolerance

    Author : Zong-Chao Ling; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Goto-Kakizaki GK rat; transgenic mice; glucose-6-phosphatase activity; insulin secretion; glucocorticoids; [alpha]2-adrenergic receptors; hyperglycemia;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes is a complex and heterogenous disease resulting from the interaction of defects of both genetic and environmental origin. Abnormalities contributing to the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes include impaired [beta]-cell function, peripheral insulin resistance and increased hepatic glucose production. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterization of Impaired Glucose Tolerance - Insulin Sensitivity, Islet Function and Metabolic Risk Factors

    Author : Hillevi Larsson; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; muscle fiber type; androgen activity; proinsulin; glucagon; insulin secretion; insulin sensitivity; Impaired glucose tolerance; type 2 diabetes; sekretion; diabetologi; Endokrinologi; diabetology; secreting systems;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a three-year prospective study on metabolic characteristics of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and the regulation of insulin sensitivity versus islet function in relation to changes in glucose tolerance. 108 non-diabetic women aged 57-58 years were randomly selected from a population of women born in 1935 with a high prevalence of IGT.

  4. 4. Impaired glucose tolerance in ischemic heart disease

    Author : Loghman Henareh; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Diabetes mellitus; myocardial infarction; atherosclerosis; endothelial dysfunction; inflammation; microalbumiuria; left ventricular hypertrophy; tissue Doppler.;

    Abstract : Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) and impaired glucose tolerance test (IGT) are well known risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Individuals with IGT, a prediabetic state, are asymptomatic during many years and they often remain undiagnosed until they have developed overt diabetes or cardiovascular complications. READ MORE

  5. 5. Foxf2 and Foxc2, two transcription factors that regulate adipocyte metabolism

    Author : Rickard Westergren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : forkhead genes; insulin signaling; glucose metabolism; adipose tissue; angiogenesis; Foxc2; Foxf2; Irs1; insulin resistance; Ang-2;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes is the most common metabolic disorder today and has reached epidemic proportions in many countries. Diet-induced insulin resistance plays a central role in the development of type 2 diabetes. READ MORE
