OBJECTIVE To determine if weight loss may prevent conversion of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) to diabetes, because weight loss reduces insulin resistance. The prevalence of IGT in the U. S. population is estimated at 11.2%, more than twice that of diabetes. Furthermore, because an oral glucose tolerance test is needed for its detection, most of these patients are undiagnosed. Screening for IGT would be meaningful if progression to diabetes could be delayed or prevented. RESEARCH DESIGN AND… Expand

Paper Mentions

Observational Clinical Trial
The overall purpose of the study is to determine prospectively the cost effectiveness of bariatric surgery following partial coverage by a large healthcare system.  
ConditionsMorbid Obesity
Effects of weight loss with orlistat on glucose tolerance and progression to type 2 diabetes in obese adults.
TLDR
The addition of orlistat to a conventional weight loss regimen significantly improved oral glucoseolerance and diminished the rate of progression to the development of impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes. Expand
The insulin tolerance test in morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery.
TLDR
Weight loss after bariatric surgery induced an improvement in metabolic fitness, related to the reduction in insulin resistance over a range of glucose tolerance statuses from normal to diabetic. Expand
Is β-cell failure in type 2 diabetes mellitus reversible?
TLDR
Decline in β-cell function in morbidly obese T2DM may not be progressive and is reversible on improving insulin sensitivity and on eliminating the inhibition by exogenous insulin. Expand
Impact of weight changes on the incidence of diabetes mellitus: a Korean nationwide cohort study
TLDR
Investigating the effect of weight changes on the incidence of type 2 diabetes in Korea found weight loss was significantly associated with lower risk for diabetes both in non-obese and obese Koreans, but particularly in the non-Obese. Expand
Influences of weight loss on long-term diabetes outcomes

TLDR
Weight loss is beneficial for long-term diabetes outcomes for overweight, obese and morbidly-obese participants, and those participants with T2DM often have reduced clinical symptoms and mortality risk. Expand
Moderate Weight Reduction in an Outpatient Obesity Intervention Program Significantly Reduces Insulin Resistance and Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease in Severely Obese Adolescents
TLDR
These data demonstrate that already moderate weight reduction by a low-threshold intervention is able to decrease insulin resistance and dyslipidemia in severely obese children and adolescents. Expand
Restoration of euglycemia and normal acute insulin response to glucose in obese subjects with type 2 diabetes following bariatric surgery.
TLDR
This is the first study to demonstrate that the lost glucose-induced AIR in patients with type 2 diabetes of mild or moderate severity is a reversible abnormality and restores a normal beta-cell AIR to glucose and a normal relationship of AIR to insulin sensitivity. Expand
Obesity and changes in body weight related to 10-year diabetes incidence in women in Taiwan.
TLDR
It is indicated that obesity at young adult and weight gain appreciably increase risk for type 1 diabetes and maintaining a lean weight throughout adulthood seems to be beneficial in the primary prevention of type 2 diabetes. Expand
Importance of Identifying the Overweight Patient Who Will Benefit the Most by Losing Weight
  • G. Reaven
  • Medicine
  • Annals of Internal Medicine
  • 2003
TLDR
Evidence that not all overweight and obese persons are insulin resistant and that the metabolic benefits from weight loss are predominantly seen in those who are defined as being insulin resistant before losing weight suggests that strategies to overcome the untoward health-related effect of overweight and obesity become more focused. Expand
Restored insulin inhibition on insulin secretion in nondiabetic severely obese patients after weight loss induced by bariatric surgery
TLDR
Weight loss in severe obesity improved insulin-induced glucose uptake, and completely normalized the insulin inhibition on its own secretion during experimentally induced hyperinsulinemia under euglycemic conditions. Expand

Impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes in obesity: a 6-year follow-up study of glucose metabolism.
TLDR
These results confirm cross-sectional studies that suggest successive phases in the evolution of obesity to diabetes: A, NGT; B, IGT (the hyperglycemia normalizing the glucose storage over 3 hours); C, diabetes with increased insulin response, where hyper glycemia does not correct the resistance to glucose storage anymore; and D, Diabetes with low insulin response; with a low glucose storage and an elevated fasting and postload glyCEmia.

SEQUENTIAL CHANGES IN SERUM INSULIN CONCENTRATION DURING DEVELOPMENT OF NON-INSULIN-DEPENDENT DIABETES
Changes in serum insulin concentrations during deterioration of glucose tolerance were studied in 81 Pima Indians who worsened from normal to impaired glucose tolerance (IGT); 44 who changed from IGTExpand
CORONARY-HEART-DISEASE RISK AND IMPAIRED GLUCOSE TOLERANCE The Whitehall Study
TLDR
In the Whitehall Study of 18,403 male civil servants aged 40--64 years, 7 1/2 year coronary-heart-disease (CHD) mortality has been examined in relation to blood-sugar concentration 2 h after a 50 g oral glucose load, and age, systolic blood-pressure, and ECG abnormality were significantly predictive of subsequent CHD mortality.

The natural history of impaired glucose tolerance in the Pima Indians.
TLDR
It is concluded that in this population approximately one fourth of subjects with impaired glucose tolerance have NIDDM at five years and two thirds at 10 years (approximately one third revert to normal) and that age and plasma glucose and insulin levels are the best predictors of clinical outcome.

TLDR
Methods for accurate measurement of the amount and distribution of fat have become an important clinical consideration because of the increased mortality and morbidity associated with obesity. Expand
