Dietary Management of NIDDM

Part of the Contemporary Biomedicine book series (CB, volume 15)


Noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM)* is a heterogenous disease that is genetically determined and, in most people, is dependent on aging and/or obesity for its expression. It is characterized frequently by a resistance to the metabolic effects of insulin (1,2) and always by a relatively impaired insulin secretory response to a high ambient glucose concentration both in the overnight fasting state and after oral or iv administration of glucose (3,4). Whether an impairment in insulin secretion or insulin resistance or both precedes the development of NIDDM is controversial. The contribution of each appears to be highly variable (5).
