OBJECTIVE To examine the usefulness of the revised criterion for fasting plasma glucose (FPG) in the diagnosis of diabetes recommended by the American Diabetic Association (ADA) (126 mg/dl, 7 mmol/l), and to characterize insulin response during the 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in newly diagnosed Japanese diabetic subjects. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A series of 2,121 Japanese subjects underwent a 75-g OGTT (0-3 h) and were divided into three groups (normal glucose tolerance [NGT… CONTINUE READING
