Daily magnesium supplements improve glucose handling in elderly subjects.
We demonstrated similar plasma concentrations and urinary losses but lower erythrocyte magnesium concentrations (2.18 +/- 0.04 vs 1.86 +/- 0.03 mmol/L, P less than 0.01) in twelve aged (77.8 +/- 2.1Expand

Improved Insulin Response and Action by Chronic Magnesium Administration in Aged NIDDM Subjects
In eight aged non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) subjects, insulin response and action were studied before and after chronic magnesium supplementation (2 g/day) to diet. ChronicExpand

Plasma GSH/GSSG affects glucose homeostasis in healthy subjects and non-insulin-dependent diabetics.
In healthy subjects (n = 10) and non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetics (n = 10) matched for age [43.1 +/- 2.2 vs. 41 +/- 4.4 yr, P = not significant (NS)], body mass index (25.1 +/- 1.1 vs. 26Expand

Plasma vitamin C affects glucose homeostasis in healthy subjects and in non-insulin-dependent diabetics.
In aged healthy (n = 10) and non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetic (n = 10) subjects matched for age [67.3 +/- 0.5 vs. 68.0 +/- 0.4 yr, P = not significant (NS)], body mass index (25.7 +/- 0.7 vs.Expand

Pulsatile insulin delivery has greater metabolic effects than continuous hormone administration in man: importance of pulse frequency.
The aim of this study was to see if the greater effect of insulin on hepatic glucose output when insulin is given using 13-min pulses in man remains when the same amount of insulin is delivered usingExpand

Effect of Aldose Reductase Inhibitor (Tolrestat) on Urinary Albumin Excretion Rate and Glomerular Filtration Rate in IDDM Subjects With Nephropathy
OBJECTIVE To explore the possible link between diabetic nephropathy and the enhanced activity of the polyol pathway, known to occur in IDDM subjects. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We studied theExpand

Greater efficacy of pulsatile insulin in type I diabetics critically depends on plasma glucagon levels.
The aim of this study was to investigate the role of plasma glucagon levels on the blood glucose response to intravenous insulin administered continuously or in a pulsatile manner. Six type IExpand

Impaired insulin-mediated erythrocyte magnesium accumulation in essential hypertension.
1. This study was designed to investigate variations in erythrocyte magnesium in the presence of insulin (0.1 unit/l) in hypertensive subjects. 2. Plasma and erythrocyte magnesium levels were foundExpand

ACE inhibition improves insulin-sensitivity in aged insulin-resistant hypertensive patients.
We have compared the cardiovascular and metabolic responses to five different ACE inhibitors in 86 patients matched for age, body mass index, blood pressure, fasting plasma glucose and insulin levelsExpand

Glucose tolerance and hormonal responses in heroin addicts. A possible role for endogenous opiates in the pathogenesis of non-insulin-dependent diabetes.
Plasma glucose, insulin, glucagon, and growth hormone responses to intravenous glucose stimulation were investigated in 15 heroin-dependent men and in 15 control subjects matched for age, sex, andExpand
