Using the minimal model approach shown by Bergman, our group had previously shown 2 variants among non-obese mildly diabetic patients, one with normal insulin sensitivity and the other with insulin resistance. The present study examines whether these 2 variants exist in the ordinary Japanese non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) population and compares the clinical profile between the 2 discrete forms of NIDDM. In addition, we investigated the factors responsible for insulin… CONTINUE READING
