Catalase rs769214 SNP in elderly malnutrition and during renutrition: is glucagon to blame?
Genetic polymorphism of glutathion S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) Ile105Val and susceptibility to atherogenesis in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus
TLDR
It is indicated that a larger study group is needed to establish the true relationship between potentialiy protective allele Val and the disease, and to determine the influence of other GSTP1 polymorphisms on atherogenesis in T2DM patients.
Assessing Insulin and Glucose Tolerance in the Aging Mouse.
TLDR
Simple guidelines are provided that can be useful to standardize GTT and ITT in the aging mouse to help researchers identify pathways, mechanisms, and genes that regulate aging-related diseases and aging itself and thus are intervention targets.
Improvement in Glycemic Control in Mice of Different Age Groups.
TLDR
Findings suggest Ad36 infected animals improve glycemic control and clear post-prandial gluco00000se increase without increasing insulin secretion in an insulin sparing manner, providing strong evidence for developing Ad36-based approaches as a novel tool to attenuate age associated glucose intolerance.
Resolving the Sources of Plasma Glucose Excursions following a Glucose Tolerance Test in the Rat with Deuterated Water and [U-13C]Glucose
TLDR
Measurements revealed that plasma glucose synthesis via gluconeogenesis remained active during the period immediately following a glucose load and in rats that were placed on high-fat diet, the development of glucose intolerance was associated with a significantly higher gluconeogenic contribution to plasma glucose levels after the load.
Urinary N‐acetyl‐β‐d‐Glucosaminidase Levels are Positively Correlated With 2‐Hr Plasma Glucose Levels During Oral Glucose Tolerance Testing in Prediabetes
TLDR
This study investigated when during the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) the plasma glucose, urine glucose, and insulin levels correlate most strongly with urinary N‐acetyl‐β‐d‐glucosaminidase (NAG) levels in prediabetic subjects.
Effects of ground cinnamon on postprandial blood glucose levels between obese and normal weight individuals
TLDR
The author revealed that glycemic response and Carbohydrate Intake in relation to obesity and AUC changed with age and type of food, but the changes were small in comparison with othernutritional categories.

Mechanisms of the age-associated deterioration in glucose tolerance: contribution of alterations in insulin secretion, action, and clearance.
TLDR
It is concluded that the deterioration in glucose tolerance that occurs in healthy elderly subjects is due to a decrease in both insulin secretion and action with the severity of the defect in insulin action being explained by the degree of fatness rather than age per se.
Age and glucose intolerance: effect of fitness and fatness.
TLDR
The article by Imbeault et al. in this issue of Diabetes Care provides additional information concerning the effect of body fat on glucose tolerance, as apparently healthy volunteers grow older.
Age as Independent Determinant of Glucose Tolerance
TLDR
Fatness, fitness, and fat distribution can account for the decline in glucose tolerance from the young adult to the middle-aged years, however, age remains a significant determinant of the further decline in sugars tolerance of healthy old subjects.
Independent influence of age on basal insulin secretion in nondiabetic humans. European Group for the Study of Insulin Resistance.
TLDR
It is concluded that, in nondiabetic Caucasian subjects of either sex, senescence per se is associated with a progressive decline in both insulin clearance and basal insulin release.
Impact of lack of suppression of glucagon on glucose tolerance in humans.
TLDR
It is indicated that lack of suppression of glucagon can cause substantial hyperglycemia when insulin availability is limited, therefore implying that inhibitors of glucagons secretion and/or glucagon action are likely to be useful therapeutic agents in such individuals.
Association between regional adipose tissue distribution and both type 2 diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance in elderly men and women.
TLDR
Elderly men and women with normal body weight may be at risk for metabolic abnormalities, including type 2 diabetes, if they possess an inordinate amount of muscle fat or visceral abdominal fat.
Role of free fatty acids and glucagon in the peripheral effect of insulin on glucose production in humans.
TLDR
The greater suppression of GP with equimolar peripheral vs. portal insulin is eliminated and markedly reversed if the acute insulin- induced suppression of both plasma FFA and glucagon is minimized, which suggests that the insulin-induced suppression of glucagon and FFA has additive or cooperative effects in mediating the acute extrahepatic effect of insulin on GP.
Effects of glucagon on renal and hepatic glutamine gluconeogenesis in normal postabsorptive humans.
The spread of the obesity epidemic in the United States, 1991-1998.
TLDR
Obesity continues to increase rapidly in the United States, and strategies and programs for weight maintenance as well as weight reduction must become a higher public health priority.
