Sample text

The characteristic ß-cell defect in type 2 diabetes is loss of the first phase (48,66), which occurs early in the course of the disease, with the first phase being reduced in half with fasting blood glucose levels above 100 mg/dL, and absent at values greater than 115 mg/dL (46). The first phase serves an important role during food ingestion, to control the postmeal glycemic excursion. Selectively disrupting the first phase in healthy subjects causes glucose intolerance (72,73), whereas restoring it in persons with type 2 diabetes markedly improves postprandial glycemia (74).
