CONTEXT The 2 fundamental subtypes of stroke are hemorrhagic stroke and ischemic stroke. Although neuroimaging is required to distinguish these subtypes, the diagnostic accuracy of bedside findings has not been systematically reviewed. OBJECTIVE To determine the accuracy of clinical examination in distinguishing hemorrhagic stroke from ischemic stroke. (More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES The effect of a low glycemic load (GL) diet on insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) concentration is still unknown but may contribute to lower chronic disease risk. We aimed to assess the impact of GL on concentrations of IGF-1 and IGF-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3). SUBJECTS/METHODS We conducted a randomized, controlled crossover(More)
OBJECTIVE Low-glycemic load diets lower post-prandial glucose and insulin responses; however, the effect of glycemic load on circulating incretin concentrations is unclear. We aimed to assess effects of dietary glycemic load on fasting and post-prandial glucose, insulin and incretin (i.e., glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), circulating insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), and IGF-1/IGF-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) concentrations are associated with adiposity and insulin resistance. We aimed to determine whether serum IGF-1, IGFBP-3, and IGF-1/IGFBP-3 are associated with presence or severity of NAFLD independent of(More)
