Improved triglyceride control with low glycaemic index‐high carbohydrate modified‐lipid diet in a hypertriglyceridaemic child
TLDR
It is suggested that a selection of a complex digestible carbohydrate and an adequate ratio between polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat may, in the long term, favourably improve the lipid profile. Expand
Women relatives of Hispanic patients with type 2 diabetes are more prone to exhibit metabolic disturbances.
TLDR
Correlation analysis revealed strong association between BMI and WHR with skinfolds and several parameters of the carbohydrate metabolism in women, but not in men, and IR in women was possitively associated withskinfolds, SBP and lipid parameters and beta cell function with VLDL-C. Expand
[Glucose/insulin response to a glucose overload in subjects at risk for type 2 diabetes].
TLDR
It is concluded that, without alteration of the glycemic response, the presence of risk factors such as obesity, dyslipidemia or family history of diabetes leads to basal hyperinsulinemia, as well as glucose stimulated hyperinsula, however the coexistence of obesity and familyHistory of diabetes, is responsible for a deficit in the insulin secretion by the pancreas.

[Glycemic index and insulin response to the ingestion of precooked corn flour in the form of "arepa" in healthy individuals].
TLDR
GI of this corn bread ("arepa") is high in comparison to other complex carbohydrates and it is not altered by the addition of protein and fat, possibly due to glucose and insulin responses similar to that produced by OGTT. Expand
[Qualitative and quantitiative differences in the plasma lipoproteins of obese, hyperlipidemic or normolipidemic men and women].
TLDR
The existence of compensatory basal hyperinsulinemia in men and women on both obese patients populations as well as alterations in the lipoprotein composition, mostly a TG overload even on NO are demonstrated. Expand
Isozyme analysis of human normal polymorphonuclear leukocyte phosphofructokinase.
TLDR
The results suggest that PFK from human normal PMN is a mixture of M-type and L-type homotetramers, mainly, with possible minor heterotetrameric forms. Expand
Isozyme analysis of human polymorphonuclear leukocyte phosphofructokinase from insulin resistant individuals.
TLDR
The lower PFK activity found in diabetic and obese individuals can be associated with the decreased activity in the L- type isozyme and in the M-type isozyme, and the appearance of an intermediate form with a different kinetic behaviour. Expand
[Dyslipidemia and hyperinsulinemia in normoglycemic-obese relatives of patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus].
TLDR
The data suggest that hyperinsulinemia in association with lipid abnormalities could appear early (before the development of Impaired Glucose Tolerance and Diabetes) in first degree relatives of NIDDM patients. Expand
