Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved labeling showing that weight loss with Xenical(R) (orlistat) delayed the onset of type 2 diabetes in obese patients with impaired glucose tolerance
(IGT or pre-diabetes).
Furthermore, severity of sleep apnea as measured by the apnea-hypopnea index, and the degree of oxygen desaturations during rapid-eye-movement sleep, accounted for more than 90% of the variability in measures of glucose tolerance
including hemoglobin [A.
That both the fasting and postprandial triglyceride levels predicted CV outcomes in those who had normal glucose tolerance
, but not in those with impaired glucose tolerance
or diabetes, is something that has not been reported before.
All had 2-hour glucose values of 140-199 mg/dL on oral glucose tolerance
test, a fasting plasma glucose concentration of 95-125 mg/dL, and one or more other high-risk characteristics (at least one component of the metabolic syndrome, a family history of type 2 diabetes, a history of gestational diabetes, the presence of polycystic ovary syndrome, or minority ethnic background).
Researchers in Tokyo examined this question using a group of 38 male Japan Self-Defense Forces in their 50s who had impaired glucose tolerance
, and 60 control individuals.
Q I am looking for an article about glucose tolerance
testing using jellybeans.
For glucose tolerance
tests, animals were fasted overnight for 12 hr, and blood samples were obtained from the tail vein.
When they gave subjects the glucose tolerance
test, a standard measure of how well the body processes sugar, they found 326 women had impaired glucose tolerance
-- flawed glucose metabolism that leads to Type II diabetes in some cases.
This report provides elemental information and data relating to the clinical trials on Pre-Diabetes/Impaired Glucose Tolerance
Her cholesterol level was elevated, and 5-hour glucose tolerance
testing revealed an exaggerated blood-sugar response and an elevated insulin level.
Studies have shown sleep deprivation to decrease weight lifting performance, decrease time to exhaustion in aerobic exercise, increase ratings of perceived exertion, increase insulin resistance and decrease glucose tolerance
, alter the supply of energy to the muscles, increase the stress hormone cortisol, and reduce running economy.
Niacin is capable of damaging the liver, activating peptic ulcers, impairing glucose tolerance
, and precipitating gouty attacks," he adds.
