BACKGROUND Subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) who have a high 1-hour postload plasma glucose level (≥155 mg/dL; NGT 1 hour-high) have been shown to be at higher risk for type 2 diabetes than subjects with NGT 1 hour-low postload plasma glucose level (<155 mg/dL). We compared β-cell function in subjects with NGT 1 hour-high, NGT 1 hour-low, and(More)
BACKGROUND Even though several oral anti-diabetic drugs (OAD) with various modes of action are replacing sulfonylurea (SU), some patients seem to be dependent on SU for adequate glycemic control. Therefore, we evaluated the clinical characteristics of such patients. METHODS We selected the patients with type 2 diabetes who met following criteria from 2009(More)
Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) is one possible treatment for patients resistant to conventional antithyroid drugs or requiring urgent attention for thyrotoxicosis. We report a 35-yr-old man with thyrotoxicosis, ultimately attributed to Graves' disease in whom antithyroid drug used initially was soon discontinued, due to abnormal liver function, and(More)
Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS) is a life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, and it is relatively common in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes. A variety of neurologi-cal deficits may occur in patients with HHS, including changes in mental status such as drowsiness, lethargy, delirium , or coma. Seizures, sensory deficits, and visual(More)
