Unrecognized Pandemic Subclinical Diabetes of the Affluent Nations : Causes , Cost and Prevention

  title={Unrecognized Pandemic Subclinical Diabetes of the Affluent Nations : Causes , Cost and Prevention},
  author={John T. A. Ely},
Regarding populations on the industrialized “western affluent”diet, arguments are made that: (1) plasma glucose values commonly seen and accepted as normal are abnormal; (2) their glucose tolerance is innately unstable; (3) most of their morbidity and mortality is produced by hyperglycemia far below glycosuria and or arteriosclerosis which can occur independently or together; (4) simple low cost methods for preventing and treating both have been in the literature for decades (correction of the… 

Effects of Short-Term Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetes and Vitamin C on Platelet Non-Enzymatic Glycation

It is demonstrated that 8 days of streptozotocin-induced short-term diabetes did not cause a significant increase in NEG of platelets, and the effect of vitamin C on platelet NEG needs to be further investigated.

On Population Kinetics of an Aging Society: Aging and Scurvy

An overview of a vast array of evidence on the connections between aging and scurvy is presented.

A Unity of Science, Especially Among Physicists, Is Urgently Needed to End Medicine's Lethal Misdirection

The purpose of this manuscript is to educate the public and end this tyranny of organized medicine whose methods are reported to cause much M&M (over a million unnecessary US deaths at a cost of many billion dollars annually).

Proper use of ascorbic acid as described here could provide effective containment for the flu pandemic.

The effect of red palm oil supplementation of an oxidative risk induced diet and a high saturated fat diet on ischaemia/perfusion injury in the isolated perfused rat heart

Whether RPO-supplementation of an oxidative risk induced diet (ORD) and a high saturated fat diet (HFD) offers protection against ischaemia/reperfusion injury in the isolated perfused rat heart and the possible mechanisms for this protection are determined.



Vascular pathology of homocysteinemia: implications for the pathogenesis of arteriosclerosis.

  • K. Mccully

    The American journal of pathology
  • 1969
Since the enzymatic abnormalities in both disorders share certain metabolic consequences, the conclusion has been reached that an elevated concentration of homocysteine, homocystine, or a derivative of hornocysteines is the common factor leading to arterial damage.

Age Gradient in Blood Glucose Levels: Magnitude and Clinical Implications

The magnitude of the change in blood glucose levels attributable to age appears to be related to the metabolic environment, size, character and proximity of the carbohydrate challenge, which poses formidable problems for the clinician in situations of diagnostic uncertainty.

Prevention of myocardial infarction by vitamin B6.

  • 1995
The preventive effect of vitamin B6 on progression of coronary heart disease may be related to increased formation of pyridoxal phosphate, the coenzyme that is required for catabolism of the atherogenic amino acid, homocysteine.

Diabetes and Atherosclerosis

The chronic hyperinsulinaemic state in vivo is, in turn, associated with an increase in the rate of production of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) triglyceride, which reflects a vicious circle in which hypertriglyceridaemia itself can cause insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsULinaemia.

Beneficial Effect of Chromium-rich Yeast on Glucose Tolerance and Blood Lipids in Elderly Subjects

The thesis that elderly people may have a low level of chromium and that an effective source for chromjum repletion, such as brewers' yeast, may improve their carbohydrate tolerance and total lipids is supported.

Evaluation of Age-adjusted Criteria for Potential Diabetes

Data from Oxford, Massachusetts, indicate that one to two-hour postprandial blood sugar levels rise 4 mg per 100 ml per decade, which are considered to provide a pragmatic solution to the rise in glucose levels that occur with age, but are insufficiently precise to resolve its pathophysiologic meaning.

Severe Diabetes with Remission: Report of a Case

Another instance of diabetes with remission which bears a remarkable similarity to a case recently reported by Harwood is described, and an interesting feature which may be helpful in diagnosis, utilizing intravenous tolbutamide as a diagnostic test for diabetes is recorded.
