Hyperinsulinemia in myotonic dystrophy (MyD) is generally considered as a result of insulin resistance. However, as a consequence of abnormality in systemic membrane fluidity in this disease, abnormal insulin clearance or intrinsic pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction could also contribute to the hyperinsulinemia. To clarify the cause of hyperinsulinemia in MyD… CONTINUE READING
