Questionnaires were administered recording demographic(More)
Non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) was diagnosed in 188 of more than 7 million Tokyo schoolchildren tested between 1974 and 1994 for glycosuria followed by oral glucose tolerance testing. The incidence rate of NIDDM in youth has continued to increase since 1976. While the daily energy intake has not changed significantly, the consumption of animal(More)
Cytokines may play important roles in the pathogenesis of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). We analysed a dinucleotide repeat polymorphism within the first intron of the interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) gene in Japanese diabetic patients (175 IDDM and 145 non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus) and 267 control subjects. A significant difference was(More)
The overall annual IDDM incidence rates by area in Japan for 1985-1989 for children 0-14 years of age at diagnosis were from 1.65 to 2.07 per 100,000. The incidence in males and females did not show any temporal trends during the period between 1980 and 1989. The prevalence of IDDM was about 1 per 10,000. The clinical features at diagnosis among Japanese(More)

OBJECTIVE to clarify and confirm the renoprotective effects of ACEIs in Japanese type 1 diabetics. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS a double-blind randomized study using two ACEIs, imidapril (a prodrug of imdaprilat without an SH-residue) and captopril as well as placebo was performed. Seventy-nine eligible cases were randomized to receive captopril 37.5 mg(More)
This study evaluated recent changes in the annual incidence of childhood type 2 diabetes in the Tokyo metropolitan area. From 1974 to 2004, a total of 236 students were diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes by the urine glucose screening program at school. The overall incidence of type 2 diabetes was 2.55/100,000. Overall, 83.9% of students with diabetes were(More)
