    Twenty-eight men were given morning and afternoon oral glucose tolerance tests in 1969 and again in 1975. According to British Diabetic Association criteria all 28 had normal morning values in 1969 but seven had "afternoon diabetes." Four men had diabetic values in the morning in 1975 but only...

    OBJECTIVE--It has recently been proposed that the peripheral taste organ is one of the targets for leptin. In lean mice, leptin selectively suppresses gustatory neural and behavioral responses to sweet compounds without affecting responses to other taste stimuli, whereas obese diabetic db/db...

    A definition of the term "glucose polymer," which refers to a glucose saccharide mixture of 3% glucose, 7% maltose, 5% maltotriose and 85% polysaccharides of 4 to 15 glucose units, used in oral glucose tolerance tests, is presented.

    The aetiology of the growth retardation occurring in patients with β-thalassaemia major is considered to be multifactorial. Although growth hormone (GH) secretion appears to be normal in many thalassaemic patients with short stature, there is evidence indicating impaired GH secretion in...

    The antihyperglycemic potential of methanol extract of Abroma augusta leaves was evaluated through oral glucose tolerance tests in glucose-loaded Swiss albino mice. The extract, when administered to mice at doses of 100, 250, and 500 mg per kg body weight significantly lowered serum glucose...
