AIMS/HYPOTHESIS The amount and quality of fat in the diet could be of importance for development of insulin resistance and related metabolic disorders. Our aim was to determine whether a change in dietary fat quality alone could alter insulin action in humans. METHODS The KANWU study included 162 healthy subjects chosen at random to receive a controlled,(More)
In normal subjects and in patients with spasticity and/or urological complaints changes in somatic muscle reflexes associated with filling of the urinary bladder were observed. Two different patterns of reflex changes occurred. One pattern was associated with easy initiation of voiding: it consisted of increasing H and T reflexes and decreasing flexor(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects on lipid levels, glycemic control, and diurnal blood pressure of two diets rich in one of the two quantitatively most important saturated fatty acids, stearic and palmitic acid, with a carbohydrate-rich diet in NIDDM patients. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 15 NIDDM patients participated in a randomized crossover(More)
OBJECTIVE Recent studies have demonstrated beneficial metabolic effects of dietary monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) in Type-2 diabetes mellitus (Type-2 DM). The question arises if dietary MUFA also has desirable effects on risk markers in subjects with high risk of developing Type-2 DM. SETTING University department of endocrinology. SUBJECTS Sixteen(More)
BACKGROUND Studies on soy supplementation suggest a cardioprotective potential. OBJECTIVE To examine the effects on LDL cholesterol and arterial function as a result of dietary enrichment with soy supplementation. DESIGN A Randomized, double blind, parallel intervention trial.

The time relation between flexor spasms, detrusor contractions and anal sphincter activity was recorded in a consecutive series of 111 patients with hyperreflexic bladder and flexor spasms. In 76 of the patients flexor spasms were preceded by detrusor contractions. The opposite pattern, namely detrusor contractions preceded by flexor spasms, was seen in(More)
