We compared the current prevalence of increased BMI and type 2 diabetes in a representative group of Tongan subjects with measurements made in 1973, and we determined the distribution and possible interrelations with the UCP2 insertion/deletion (ins/del) polymorphism of these variables. We documented the BMI, glucose tolerance, and standard lipid variables in 1012 Tongan subjects (429 men and 583 women, ages 15 to 85 years) during 1998 and 2000 and compared the BMI findings with those of the… CONTINUE READING
