Impaired pulsatile secretion of insulin in relatives of patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes.
In fasting nondiabetic subjects, insulin is secreted in regular pulses every 12 to 15 minutes, but patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes lack regular oscillatory insulin secretion. To investigate whether abnormal insulin oscillations are an early feature of diabetes, we studied 10 minimally glucose-intolerant first-degree relatives of patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes and 10 controls matched for age and obesity. We performed a time-series analysis of fasting plasma insulin l...Expand abstract
