The purpose of the study is to characterize the changes in amino acid, lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes exposed to acute hyperglycemia. Moreover we wish to assess the effect of acute hyperglycemia on cardiac output.
Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death in modern Western societies. Obesity, diabetes and the metabolic syndrome are the main risk factors for cardiovascular disease. People with type 2 diabetes and no history of heart disease have a risk of myocardial infarction similar to the risk in non-diabetic patients with known heart disease.
However, the causal relationship between obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease is unclear. Insulin resistance leads to many metabolic abnormalities, including high circulating levels of free fatty acids (FFA). FFA induces insulin resistance and may lead to beta cell failure. In addition FFA may directly worsen the metabolic and electrochemical performance of the working heart. Moreover it is still unclear how acute hyperglycemia affects cardiac output.
In this study our purpose is to characterize the changes in amino acid, lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes exposed to acute hyperglycemia (blood glucose between 18 and 20 mmol/L) compared to the amino acid, lipid and glucose metabolism at a normal glucose level (blood glucose between 5 and 7 mmol/L). The results from the patients with type 2 diabetes will be compared with results from healthy controls examined in a fasting basal state. The patients must not suffer from any kind of serious heart disease and should be treated with insulin.
Moreover we wish to compare cardiac output at high and normal blood glucose levels, respectively. Cardiac output will primarily be assessed by doppler echocardiography.

The purpose of the study is to investigate some of the mechanisms behind severe insulin resistance and to determine the dose response to insulin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
This trial was conducted in Europe, Middle East, North America and South America. The aim of this trial was to compare the use of an intensified insulin treatment Insulin Aspart (NovoRapi...
The main purpose of the study is to investigate the reason for the reduced number of hypoglycaemic attacks in type 1 diabetic patients when, for a period of time, using Insulin Aspart at m...
The purpose of this study is the comparative evaluation of the Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics of two recombinant regular human insulin injections administered intravenously in healt...
Compared to human insulins analogue insulins offer the option of optimizing metabolism also in type 2 diabetes. Especially, fast acting insulin analogues lower postprandial glucose levels ...
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of intensive insulin therapy (premixed insulin lispro vs. insulin glargine) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).
Insulin glargine, a long-acting human insulin analogue, allows for once-daily basal use in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). MYL-1501D is a proposed insulin glargine biosimilar.
Cardiovascular mortality is a major concern for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Insulin therapy significantly contributes to a high rate of death in these patients. We have performed a ...
Saxagliptin as one of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors can effectively improve glycaemic control in type 2 diabetes mellitus, and nesfatin-1 is regarded as a very important factor in regulati...
Offspring of mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) are far more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the insulin metabolism of pregnant ...
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 subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
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 time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A strain of Rattus norvegicus which is a model for spontaneous insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, INSULIN-DEPENDENT).

Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
