Whole body insulin resistance characterizes patients with NIDDM, but it is not known whether insulin also has impaired ability to stimulate myocardial glucose uptake (MGU) in these patients. This study was designed to evaluate MGU as measured by 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose ([18F]FDG) and positron emission tomography (PET) in patients with NIDDM and stable coronary artery disease (CAD) under standardized metabolic conditions. Eight patients with NIDDM, 11 nondiabetic patients with CAD, and 9… CONTINUE READING
