    OBJECTIVE -- To simulate the outcomes of alternative strategies for screening the U.S. population 45-74 years of age for type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS -- We simulated screening with random plasma glucose (RPG) and cut points of 100, 130, and 160 mg/dl and a multivariate equation...

    Background. In short-acting insulin analogues the dissociation of hexamers is facilitated, achieving peak plasma concentrations about twice as high and within approximately one half the time compared with regular human insulin. According to these properties, this profile resembles the shape of...

    Background: Recent recommendation advocates the reporting of HbA1c in terms of mean plasma glucose. We examined the impact of improving patients' interpretation of a given HbA1c value on glycaemic control. Methods: We conducted a questionnaire survey among 111 patients attending a hospital...

  • Plasma levels of cellular fibronectin in diabetes. Kanters, Suzan D. J. M.; Banga, Jan-Dirk; Algra, Ale; Frijns, Rini C. J. M.; Beutler, Jaap J.; Fijnheer, Rob; Kanters, S D; Banga, J D; Algra, A; Frijns, R C; Beutler, J J; Fijnheer, R // Diabetes Care;Feb2001, Vol. 24 Issue 2, p323 

    Objective: Cellular fibronectin is an endothelium-derived protein involved in subendothelial matrix assembly. Elevated plasma levels of cellular fibronectin therefore reflect loss of endothelial cell polarization or injury to blood vessels. Consequently, elevated plasma levels of...

    Fasting plasma glucose is a multigenic trait related to both diabetes and obesity. We performed a genome scan for quantitative fasting plasma glucose levels in 320 families (1,514 subjects), segregating extreme obesity and normal weight using 382 autosomal microsatellite markers. We found...
