Through genome-wide association meta-analyses of up to 133,010 individuals of European ancestry without diabetes, including individuals newly genotyped using the Metabochip, we have increased the number of confirmed loci influencing glycemic traits to 53, of which 33 also increase type 2 diabetes risk (q < 0.05). Loci influencing fasting insulin(More)
It is well known that the glycemic control accomplished by the artificial endocrine pancreas (Biostator; GCIIS), requires an excessive insulin consumption. In order to improve the Biostator performance, we have studied 5 insulin dependent diabetic patients on anticipated automatic pre-programmed insulin infusion starting at the beginning of breakfast. Such(More)
The glucose clamp technique has been used to evaluate the metabolic activity of NPH biosynthetic insulin in diabetic subjects free from anti-insulin antibodies. After overnight blood glucose normalization with a glucose-controlled insulin infusion system (Biostator), an s.c. injection of NPH insulin was given in the abdominal region. The insulin dose (0.236(More)
Intensified insulin therapy is usually carried out either with multiple subcutaneous insulin injections (ICT: intensified conventional therapy) or with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) by minipumps. For two years we have been studying two matched groups of type I diabetic patients, treated with 3 daily insulin injections (ICT) and with CSII ((More)
It is well known that deep hypothermia used in open-heart surgery is usually associated with a marked reduction in carbohydrate tolerance, especially dangerous in the diabetic patient, since it might result in severe metabolic complications, namely ketosis and hyperosmolar coma. In order to prevent the occurrence of such complications we treated an(More)
