The overnight urinary albumin excretion rate (AER) of 87 patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus was measured in 1966-67, 14 years later information was obtained on 63 of the original cohort; those alive were restudied, and for those who had died relevant clinical information and case of death were recorded. The development of clinical diabetic(More)
In the Whitehall study of 18 403 male civil servants aged 40-64 years the 10 year mortality rates from coronary heart disease and stroke showed a non-linear relation to two hour blood glucose values, with a significantly increased risk for glucose intolerant subjects with concentrations above the 95th centile point (5.4-11.0 mmol/l; 96-199 mg/100 ml) and(More)
In the Whitehall Study of 18,403 male civil servants aged 40--64 years, 7 1/2 year coronary-heart-disease (CHD) mortality has been examined in relation to blood-sugar concentration 2 h after a 50 g oral glucose load. CHD mortality was approximately doubled for subjects with inpaired glucose tolerance (IGT), defined as a blood-sugar above the 95th centile(More)
A five-year follow-up of 18 403 male British civil servants between the age of 40 and 64, who had been the subject of an earlier clinical survey found 277 deaths from coronary heart-disease (C.H.D.). After adjusting for age, current cigarette smoking, systolic and diastolic blood-pressure, and blood-cholesterol were shown to be related to both the(More)
Recommended criteria for the diagnosis of maturity-onset diabetes mellitus based on glucose tolerance tests vary considerably; none are derived from long-term observations of the further development of different degrees of glucose intolerance. Evidence from several epidemiological investigations suggests that the risk of specific diabetic complications(More)
Mortality follow-up is now complete for 5 years in the 18 403 male civil servants aged 40-64 who were examined between 1967-69 in the Whitehall Study of British civil servants. During this period, 277 of them died of coronary heart-disease (C.H.D.); half of these deaths were in subjects in whom the findings at initial screening had suggested early(More)
Screening for gestational diabetes is commonly recommended despite the absence of a common definition of gestational diabetes. Furthermore, there is no consensus about management or treatment. Those who recommend screening do so largely on the basis of fetal morbidity, which seems to be predominantly "macrosomia"--another term without an agreed definition.(More)
Human insulin synthesised by recombinant DNA technology was compared with highly purified porcine insulin in healthy men. Intracutaneous injection over a wide range of concentrations of both insulins into five subjects gave rise to no local reactions over a 48 h period. The glycaemic response to standard subcutaneous injection at high and low dose levels(More)
