Noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) is an increasingly common disease, which brings a number of life-threatening complications. In rats with experimentally induced diabetes, there is an increase in the capacity of the intestine to absorb monosaccharides. We have examined the activity and the expression of monosaccharide transporters in the intestine of patients suffering from NIDDM. Na(+)-dependent D-glucose transport was 3.3-fold higher in brush-border membrane (BBM) vesicles… CONTINUE READING
