Background: Recently, the cut-off point for normal fasting glucose (FG) level, was decreased to 100 mg/dl. Aim: To determine the frequency of abnormal carbohydrate abnormalities in children with obesity and evaluate if the fasting glucose level is a useful tool for the screening of glucose intolerance (GI). Patients and methods: Children and adolescents, referred for evaluation of obesity were evaluated with an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and FG. The sensitivity of FG for detection of GI, using the 100 and 110 mg/dl cut-off point, was evaluated. Results: We studied 186 patients (125 females) aged 12.1 (range: 5.4-19.3) years with a body mass index (BMI) of 29.9 (18.3-44.6) kg/mt 2 and a BMI Z score of 2.1 (1.7-3.2). Seven patients (3.8%) had abnormalities in the carbohydrate metabolism. The sensitivity of FG for the detection of GI using the 100 and 110 mg/dl cut-off values was 42.9 and 14.3%, respectively. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves showed that the optimal d

Role of glucose-1-phosphate and glucose-6-phosphate in glycogen synthesis by pigeon liver homogenate Figueroa, Enrique; Peirano, Iris; Vega, Margarita; Vega, Patricio (1976)1. 1. Glucose-1-C14, G-6-P-1-C14 and G-1-P-l-C14 have been incubated with a pigeon liver homogenate. Incorporation of C14 into glycogen and CO2 were measured. 2. 2. The relative incorporation of C14 from G-6-P-1-C14 and ...
An Inositol 1,4,5-Triphosphate (IP3)-IP3 Receptor Pathway Is Required for Insulin-Stimulated Glucose Transporter 4 Translocation and Glucose Uptake in Cardiomyocytes Contreras Ferrat, Ariel Eduardo; Toro, Barbra; Bravo, R.; Parra Ortíz, María Valentina; Vásquez, C.; Ibarra, Cristián; Mears, David; Chiong Lay, Mario; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Klip, Amira; Lavandero González, Sergio (ENDOCRINE SOC, 2010-10)Intracellular calcium levels ([Ca2+](i)) and glucose uptake are central to cardiomyocyte physiology, yet connections between them have not been studied. We investigated whether insulin regulates [Ca2+](i) in cultured ...
Obese visceral adipose tissue grafted in lean mice can alter glucose homeostasis and energy efficiency Barrera, G.; Gatica,; Morgan, Carlos (2012)Fat transplantation experiments have previously shown regulatory properties of lean adipose tissue on glucose homeostasis in the whole animal. In the current study, we addressed whether obese visceral white adipose tissue ...
