Session: MON 758-775-Beta Cells, Glucose Control & Complications
Poster Board MON-768
We recruited 544 Korean subjects from March 2012 to December 2012. Clinical characteristics, biochemical markers, glucose metabolism status with fasting blood glucose(FBG), 75-g oral glucose tolerance test, and HbA1c were obtained in each subject.
Among 544 subjects (213 males, 357 females), prevalence of diabetes, pre-diabetes, normoglycemic control were 87 (16.0%), 165 (30.3%), and 292 (53.7%) cases according to the diagnostic guideline of Korean diabetes association. Univariate analysis showed that SUA levels, BUN, waist circumference(WC), body mass index(BMI), triglyceride(TG), FBG, and HbA1C were significantly higher in women with type 2 diabetes and WC, BMI, TG, FBG, and HbA1C were significantly higher in men with type 2 diabetes compared to normoglycemic control (P<0.05). Multiple regression analysis showed SUA and age were associated with type 2 diabetes in women (P<0.05).
This study indicates that raised SUA levels are associated with the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in women, suggesting that SUA may be a predictive marker for the incidence of type 2 diabetes in the Korean women.
