Carbohydrate homeostasis was evaluated in 47 girls with Turner syndrome and in 25 “short normal” girls by means of an oral glucose tolerance test. Of the Turner patients 34% showed an impaired glucose tolerance vs 8% of the controls (X2, P<0.05). Mean glucose levels were significantly higher and mean insulin levels and insulinogenic index significantly lower in young Turner patients aged 5–12 years but not in adolescents aged 12–16 years. In both groups of patients, insulin levels and the… CONTINUE READING
