The overall objective is to investigate, whether retinal blood vessel diameter change during the energy consuming dark adaptation process and if responses vary between low and high blood glucose.
All subjects are being studied using the same procedure. The study schedule takes place from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. every time. Each subject shows up on one single day. Subjects are to show up fasting overnight with a break in insulin and/or oral antidiabetic treatment.
The study eye of each subject will be selected by randomisation. We seek to have an equal distribution of right and left eyes overall.
A first set of images will be taken after 5 minutes in "standardised daylight", in a room without light from outside, which eliminates any concerns about weather variations. After this the room is completely darkened. 2 set of images will be taken in the dark adapted state after 20 and 40 minutes. Subsequently the patient ingests the OGTT and will reach maximum blood glucose level after about 60-90 minutes. At this time, the subjects undergo the same "photo session" as above with high blood glucose levels.

The overall global prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is rising. Based on the latest Thai National Health Examination Survey, an estimated 3.2 million people had DM, of whom one-t...
This clinical research studies the physiology and immunology of new-onset post-transplant diabetes mellitus in patients undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Oral glucose tolera...
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is an asymptomatic disease. Diagnosis is based on a oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) requiring pregnant women to absorb 75g of glucose while fasting s...
The aim of the project is to investigate the acute effect of exercise on blood glucose after glucose consumption. Thereby we wish to achieve knowledge that can improve prevention and treat...
Hyperemesis gravidarum (HEG) is not only nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, but it is also a clinical syndrome including endocrine and metabolic complications. Recently, some investigators ...
The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is used both in clinical practice and research to assess glucose tolerance. In addition, the OGTT is utilized for surrogate measures of insulin sensitivity and t...
Guidelines recommend early detection of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). The objective of the present study was to evaluate the capacity to identify DM2 in subjects that were screened for DM2 simultane...
Women with a history of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) are at increased risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D). It is thus recommended that an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) be performed after delive...
Diabetes first detected during pregnancy is currently divided into gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and diabetes mellitus (DM)- most of which are type 2 DM (T2DM). This study aims to define the pre...
Ghrelin is associated with glucose homeostasis but its' possible relevance with glucose levels in physiological and pathological conditions has so far been poorly investigated. The aim of the present ...
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.
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.
