Abstract (Summary)

Though Hispanics have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D), it is not known if GLP-1 secretion contributes to this risk. We therefore investigated the effect of glucose on plasma GLP-1, insulin and glucagon responses in Hispanic adults with T2D (T2D-H), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT-H), or normal glucose tolerance (NGT-H).

Hormone responses to ingestion of 75 g glucose were evaluated over a 240-min period in a convenience sample of 16 men and 30 women aged 21-66 yrs. Results showed no significant difference in GLP-1 increase between NGT-H and NGT-nH nor was there any significant difference between Hispanic patients with varying degrees of glucose homeostasis (T2D-H, IGT-H, NGT-H). Despite an adequate GLP-1 response to glucose, we found abnormal insulin and glucagon responses to glucose in Hispanics with T2D and abnormal glucose homeostasis, respectively.
