Myocardial and skeletal muscle glucose uptake was examined in 9 type 2 diabetic patients and 13 control subjects using PET and the insulin clamp technique. All subjects had clinically stable coronary heart disease. To simulate the clinical situation, diabetic patients were kept slightly hyperglycemic during the clamp study. Consequently, there were no differences in skeletal muscle or total body glucose disposal between the two groups. With PET, myocardial glucose uptake was 12-20-fold greater… CONTINUE READING
