Insulin secretion in glucose-tolerant offspring of type 2 diabetes patients in Trinidad, West Indies



Insulin secretion in glucose-tolerant offspring of type 2 diabetes patients in Trinidad, West Indies



Southern Medical Journal 94(2): 223-228



Genetics and environmental factors play vital roles in type 2 diabetes. To gain insight into its pathogenesis, early study of offspring of affected patients is needed. 34 offspring of patients with type 2 diabetes and 27 nondiabetic control subjects from the Carribean matched for sex, height, weight, and waist-to-hip ratio had standard oral glucose tolerance tests (75 g glucose in 300 ml water) Homeostasis model assessment was used in measuring insulin resistance and sensitivity.
