We will plan to study 48 subjects with diabetes and 8 patients without diabetes. The blood tests from the subjects without diabetes will be helpful in assessing the "normal" response compared to subjects with diabetes. Diabetic subjects that no longer need insulin will be randomly placed (like the flip of a coin) on a diabetes pill called pioglitazone, a diabetes pill called sitagliptin or a placebo pill (a pill without active medication). Subjects on pills will be followed for 3½ years and undergo blood tests at specified intervals to assess their ability to make insulin. These studies will allow a better understanding of the factors that lead to high blood sugar in patients with KPDM and direct the best diabetes treatment for this patient population.
Hypothesis: Pioglitazone therapy or sitagliptin therapy compared to placebo, will improve β-cell function, insulin sensitivity, and allow for a longer period of time prior to encountering an insulin-deficient relapse after discontinuation of insulin therapy.

A pharmaceutical preparation of sitagliptin phosphate and metformin hydrochloride that is used in the treatment of TYPE 2 DIABETES.
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 life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
A pyrazine-derived DIPEPTIDYL-PEPTIDASE IV INHIBITOR and HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENT that increases the levels of the INCRETIN hormones GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDE-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). It is used in the treatment of TYPE 2 DIABETES.
A condition characterized by an abnormally elevated concentration of ketone bodies in the body tissues and fluids. It is a complication of diabetes mellitus and starvation. (Dorland, 27th ed)
