Type 2 diabetes is more frequent in Japanese Americans than in Japan or the U.S. non-Hispanic white population. This appears to be due to the effects of ''westernization'' to bring out metabolic changes that lead to diabetes. This study will look at whether increased physical activity and dietary changes will reduce or prevent the metabolic changes that lead to type 2 diabetes in Japanese Americans who have impaired glucose tolerance, a condition intermediate between normal glucose tolerance and diabetes.

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of weight loss via hypocaloric diet, aerobic exercise training, combined hypocaloric diet and exercise training, and attention control i...
This study aimed to examine metabolic response to a short-term fructose enriched diet in carriers for hereditary fructose intolerance compared to controls. Effects of fructose coffees will...
The goal of this study is to determine whether markers of vascular inflammation (such as c-reactive protein) can predict endothelial dysfunction (as measured by flow-mediated dilation) in ...
The main objective is to evaluate the effect of therapeutic exercise program on blood glucose regulation in women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) who are assigned to diet-and-exer...
A ketogenic diet is known to lead to weight loss and is considered metabolically healthy; however there are conflicting reports on its effect on hepatic insulin sensitivity. KD fed animals appear meta...
The present study investigated the efficacy of the hepatoprotective drug matrine (Mtr) for its new application for hepatosteatosis and associated disorders in glucose homeostasis. The study was perfor...
Gestational low-protein (LP) programming causes glucose intolerance (GI) and insulin resistance (IR) in adult offspring. Folate supplementation has been shown to rescue the offspring from various prog...
Hepatic glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are dysregulated in human obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and diabetes. The multifunctional GST Pi isoform (GSTP) catalyzes the conjugation...
Lnk/Sh2b3 is an adaptor protein that negatively regulates cytokine signaling in lymphohematopoiesis. A missense variant within the LNK/SH2B3 gene has been reported to be a risk variant for several aut...
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
A heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by HYPERGLYCEMIA and GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.
