Red flags before diabetes.
Swedish researchers believe, after conducting a cohort study of over a half a million people for over 20 years, that mildly elevated fasting plasma glucose and triglyceride levels could indicate an increased risk for type 2 diabetes a quarter-century, 25 years, before diagnosis.
Risk factors for type 2 diabetes had previously included obesity and elevated fasting glucose may be present up to ten years before the onset. Researchers from this study found that factors such as BMI, fasting triglycerides, fasting glucose, the apo B/apo A-I ration and inflammatory markers were increased up to 25 years before the diagnosis. Individuals with levels over 124 mg/dL were more likely to develop type 2 diabetes 20 years later, even if they weren’t overweight or had elevated mean fasting glucose levels. At Second Nature, we test for all of these markers in CT.
They also found signs of higher levels of fructosamine at about 15 years prior to diagnosis. This is a marker of glycemic levels over an extended period of time. The leading researcher in this study speculated that “The risk of developing the disease presents early with increased BMI and dyslipidemia, which in turn leads to successively decreased insulin sensitivity, elaborated on these early changes in risk factors and create a risk score based on a few easily available factors in clinical settings.”
