ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on insulin resistance and the secretion of insulin and incretin hormones in individuals with impaired fasting glycemia (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). It was found that IGT is characterized by insulin resistance and lack of compensatory increase in insulin secretion. Individuals with IFG may compensate for a defective insulin secretion during oral glucose ingestion by increasing the secretion of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) according to the study.
