Abstract

Early metabolic defects were studied and identified in 33 nondiabetic first degree relatives (FDR) of subjects with noninsulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) (Group I), and in 31 control subjects (Group II) matched for age and body mass index (BMI) with no family history of diabetes (14 with impaired, and 17 with normal glucose tolerance (IGT, and NGT, resp.). The conclusion was that IGT is frequent among FDR of subjects with NIDDM; a mild hyperinsulinemia is present before the appearance of glucose intolerance and an impaired insulin action on glucose metabolism and lipolysis is present in FDR with IGT.
