Summary of "Increased prelaminar tissue thickness in patients with open-angle glaucoma and type 2 diabetes."

The characteristics of the optic nerve head (ONH) in open angle glaucoma (OAG) patients with diabetes have not been reported. This study aimed to characterize the ONH structures and glaucomatous damage in diabetic OAG patients, using age-matched non-diabetic OAG patients and control subjects.

The measurement of subcutaneous fat located directly beneath the skin by grasping a fold of skin and subcutaneous fat between the thumb and forefinger and pulling it away from the underlying muscle tissue. The thickness of the double layer of skin and subcutaneous tissue is then read with a caliper. The five most frequently measured sites are the upper arm, below the scapula, above the hip bone, the abdomen, and the thigh. Its application is the determination of relative fatness, of changes in physical conditioning programs, and of the percentage of body fat in desirable body weight.
