Metabolic studies in lipoatrophic diabetes: mechanism of hyperglycemia and evidence of resistance to insulin of lipid metabolism.


We determined in 5 control subjects and in one patient with total congenital lipoatrophy (LA) the effect of insulin infusion on glucose flux and some aspects of lipid metabolism. In the post-absorptive state LA had moderate hyperglycemia (9.2 versus 3.80 +/- 0.07 mmol.l-1) and hyperinsulinemia (19 vs 12 +/- 3 mU.l-1) and a massive increase in glucose… (More)
