    Aim of this study was to formulate an index for glucose effectiveness (Sg), SgIo, based on 3-point (0, 30 and 120 min) 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). The equation for SgI was developed in the Chikuma cohort ( n = 502). Firstly, post-loading plasma glucose without insulin action and Sg...

    OBJECTIVE — The use of fasting plasma glucose (FPG) level ≥ 7.0 mmol/l leads to underdiagnosis of type 2 diabetes compared with the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). The OGTT is of limited use for population screening. Most of the increase in cardiovascular risk in relation to...

    We have studied edible algae that have the potential to down-regulate blood glucose. In Japan, Ecklonia species have been believed to improve the circulation of blood. In this study, we used leptin receptor deficient type 2 diabetes model mice (db/db) and prediabetic C57BL/6J mice. We also...
