Researchers in Belgium have recently found a correlation between insulin resistance and glucose complexity in both patients with and without type 1 diabetes. These findings are based on an examination of 86 people with and without diabetes, and ages ranged from 12-72. The participants who did have type 1 diabetes wore continuous glucose monitoring devices.
The findings show that lower complexity of glucose monitoring was associated with insulin resistance in both patients with and without diabetes. In the non-diabetic participants, low complexity might be an early marker of glucose regulation problems. This information could be beneficial for determining future diabetes treatments and prevention efforts.
These findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism on February 9, 2016.
