Parallel changes of proinsulin and islet amyloid polypeptide in glucose intolerance.
Elevated proinsulin secretion and islet amyloid deposition are both features of Type 2 diabetes but their relationship to beta-cell dysfunction is unknown. To determine if islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) secretion is disproportionate with other beta-cell products at any stage of glucose intolerance, 116 subjects were studied. Non-diabetic subjects with equivalent body mass index (BMI) were assigned to three groups, (i) normal fasting glucose, fpg<5.5 mmol l(-1); (ii) intermediate fasting ...Expand abstract
