- OGTT detects silent diabetes in CAD. // Diabetes Digest;2011, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p233
The article discusses the study which suggested that an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) can detect silent diabetes in people with coronary artery disease (CAD) that undergo coronary angiography.
- Undiagnosed diabetes best detected by OGTT in people with coronary artery disease undergoing angiography. Evans, Marc // Diabetes Digest;2011, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p233
The article discusses the study which demonstrated that oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in people with coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing angiography.
- Effects of postprandial glucose levels on macrovascular complications. // Journal of Family Practice;Jan2008, Vol. 57 Issue 1, pS3
The article presents studies on the effects of postprandial glucose (PPG) levels on macrovascular complications. A follow-up of the Diabetes Intervention Study found a significantly greater incidence in mortality among patients with increased PPG levels at baseline, compared with patients who...
- Impaired Glucose Tolerance, but not Impaired Fasting Glucose, Is Associated With Increased Levels of Coronary Heart Disease Risk Factors. Blake, Deirdre R.; Meigs, James B.; Muller, Denis C.; Najjar, Samer S.; Andres, Reubin; Nathan, David M. // Diabetes;Aug2004, Vol. 53 Issue 8, p2095
Impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) identify individuals at high risk for progression to diabetes. Whether IFG and IGT have comparable coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factor profiles, independent of their progression to diabetes, is unclear. We determined CHD...
- Utility of the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test Versus Fasting Plasma Glucose in the Diagnosis of the Unknown Diabetes in Population with Coronary Artery Disease. Delgado, Elias; de la Hera, Jesus M.; Botas, Patricia; Garcia, Jose Maria; Fernandez, Ernesto; Lozano, Iñigo; Avanzas, Pablo; Moris, Cesar // Diabetes;Jun2007 Supplement 1, Vol. 56, pA594
The article focuses on the findings of a population-based cross-sectional study that compared the effectivity of oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) with fasting plasma glucose (FPG) in diagnosing unknown diabetes in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), conducted in Spain. An OGTT was...
- Can Admission and Fasting Glucose Reliably Identify Undiagnosed Diabetes in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome? Okosieme, Onyebuchi E.; Peter, Rajesh; Usman, Muhammad; Bolusani, Hemanth; Suruliram, Prem; George, Lindsay; Evans, L. Marc // Diabetes Care;Oct2008, Vol. 31 Issue 10, p1955
OBJECTIVE -- Our objectives were to determine the prevalence of previously undiagnosed abnormal glucose tolerance, i.e., diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) in patients with acute coronary syndrome and to assess the utility of admission and fasting glucose in identifying diabetes in...
- Time of day critical for diabetes diagnosis. Saunders, Carol S. // Patient Care;2/28/2001, Vol. 35 Issue 4, p7
Focuses on the influence of diurnal differences in diabetes diagnosis. Statistics on differences between glucose values indicating diabetes in subject tested in the morning and in the afternoon.
- Fasting Proinsulin Concentrations Predict the Development of Type 2 Diabetes. Wareham, Nicholas J.; Byrne, Christopher D.; Williams, Rhys; Day, Nicholas E.; Hales, C. Nicholas // Diabetes Care;Feb99, Vol. 22 Issue 2, p262
Presents information on a study regarding the function of fasting proinsulin concentrations in the diagnosis of diabetes. Comparison of baseline characteristics of glucose tolerance test; Unadjusted relative risk of diabetes progression; Optimal logistic regression model with diabetes as the...
- Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus: pitfalls in the glucose tolerance test. Wiener, K. // British Medical Journal (Clinical Research Edition);11/28/1987, Vol. 295 Issue 6610, p1363
Examines the use of oral glucose tolerance test in diagnosing diabetes mellitus. Procedures in performing the test; Limitations of the test; Criteria in the interpretation of the test results.
