Objective. Observational studies have shown a protective association between coffee consumption and type 2 diabetes mellitus whereas caffeine or caffeinated coffee acutely deteriorates glucose tolerance. We investigated the effects of chronic drinking of instant coffee on glucose and insulin concentrations during a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test. Methods.(More)
Progressive muscle weakness accompanied by progressive muscle atrophy was investigated in rats administered beta,beta'-iminodipropionitrile (IDPN) chronically in the drinking water. Spontaneous running wheel activity declined slowly and reached a constant low level before postural muscle weakness was apparent. The rats being offered IDPN in the drinking(More)
Confusional migraine (CM) is recognized as a kind of pediatric migraine equivalent. We report that a 10-year-old girl had repeated attacks of confusional state and of migraine with aura. She suffered from total of six CM attacks and migraine attacks with aura almost once a month. Therefore, sodium valproate (VPA) was initiated to prevent these attacks. They(More)
Beta,beta'-iminodipropionitrile (IDPN)-induced muscle weakness in rats is a model for motorneuropathy diseases. The effects of oral administration of branched-chain amino acids on the progression of muscle weakness and muscle atrophy induced by the administration of IDPN in the drinking water, were investigated in this study. The spontaneous motor activity(More)
