Hyperglycaemic siblings of Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetic patients have increased PAI-1, central obesity and insulin resistance compared with their paired normoglycaemic sibling.
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: First-degree relatives of Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetic patients in cross-sectional studies have increased insulin resistance, associated cardiovascular risk factors and abnormalities of fibrinolysis and coagulation. To minimise between-family genetic and environmental confounders, we investigated within-family relationships between early hyperglycaemia and risk factors. METHODS: Thirteen age and gender matched sibling pairs of Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabe...Expand abstract
