The 'basal' plasma glucose, defined as the stable overnight concentration, has been assessed as an index of diabetes control by comparison with plasma glucose measurements during 24-h profiles in diet-treated maturity-onset diabetic patients and normal subjects. The basal plasma glucose correlated with the total (r=0.98) and incremental (r=0.86) glucose areas, as well as the 24-h M value (r=0.90). In mild diabetes the basal value was more abnormal than the incremental glucose area after meals… CONTINUE READING
