BACKGROUND Bezafibrate is mainly used to treat hypertriglyceridemia. Studies have reported that bezafibrate also improves type 2 diabetes mellitus, but the mechanism has not been fully elucidated. We performed euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamps (glucose clamp) and meal tolerance tests (MTT) to examine the effects of bezafibrate on insulin resistance in(More)
INTRODUCTION Several studies have shown that dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors improve insulin secretion during oral glucose tolerance tests. However, the effects of DPP-4 inhibitors on impaired acute insulin responses in the postprandial state in real-world settings are unknown. Therefore, we evaluated the effects of sitagliptin on the acute(More)
BACKGROUND Galectin-3 is a family of soluble beta-galactoside-binding lectins that play many important regulatory roles in inflammation. Galectin-3-deficient mice have been shown to exhibit excess adiposity, hyperglycemia, insulin resistance and systemic inflammation. We investigated the association between serum galectin-3 and insulin resistance in(More)
BACKGROUND We developed a simple and new insulin resistance index derived from a glucose clamp and a meal tolerance test (MTT) in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS Fifteen patients [mean age: 53 years, fasting plasma glucose (FPG) 7.7 mmol/L, HbA1c 7.1% (54 mmol/mol), body mass index 26.8 kg/m(2)] underwent a MTT and a glucose(More)
We report a case of a 64-year-old male with a-fetoprotein(AFP)-producing gastric cancer accompanied by large liver metastases and multiple lymph node metastases. The patient's serum AFP level was 42,307 ng/mL and a biopsy specimen showed AFP-positive tumor cells immunohistochemically. Systemic chemotherapy by tegafur gimeracil oteracil potassium(S-1)and(More)
An elevated PI/I ratio is attributable to increased secretory demand on β-cells. However, the effect of postprandial targeting therapy on proinsulin level is unknown. We evaluated the metabolic effect of glinide and sulfonylurea (SU) using the meal tolerance test (MTT). MTT was applied to previously untreated Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) subjects.(More)
