  1. 1. Proinsulin and Insulin Sensitivity as Predictors of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Coronary Heart Disease Clinical Epidemiological Studies with up to 27 Years of Follow-Up

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Tryck och Medier

    Author : Björn Zethelius; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; diabetes; coronary heart disease; insulin; proinsulin; prognosis; mortality; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; Geriatrics; geriatrik;

    Abstract : Defects in insulin secretion and insulin action are the major abnormalities in the development of Type 2 diabetes. Hyperinsulinemia is a risk marker for Type 2 diabetes and according to some, but not in all studies also for coronary heart disease (CHD). Conventional insulin assays measure immunoreactive insulin including proinsulin-like molecules. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Impact of Bariatric Surgery on Obesity related Metabolic Traits with Specific Emphasis on Glucose, Insulin and Proinsulin
