AbstractAbstract PDF
Silent myocardial ischemia (SMI) is more common in diabetic patients than among the general population. It is not yet established whether a routine screening test for SMI is necessary, and which screening test would be most useful. The purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence of SMI detected by Thallium-201 perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in type 2 diabetic patients. METHODS: A total of 173 asymptomatic type 2 diabetic patients were included in the study. Thallium-201 perfusion SPECT was performed to screen for SMI. RESULTS: Among the 173 patients, abnormal perfusion patterns were found in 11 patients. Coronary angiography was carried out for these patients, and significant coronary artery stenosis was found in ten of them (positive predictive value; 90.9%). There was a significant association between SMI and overt albuminuria (OR = 7.33, 95% CI, 1.825-29.437). CONCLUSION: Thallium-201 perfusion SPECT is not sensitive enough to identify SMI, but is accurate in detecting decreased myocardial perfusion. This may be a useful screening tool for detecting SMI in type 2 diabetic patients with impaired renal function.

AbstractAbstract PDF
It is well known that the clinical characteristics of diabetes mellitus in Korean people are different from those of Western people. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of the anti-GAD antibody (GADA) in a large number of Korean patients with adult-onset diabetes. METHODS: The GADA was measured by radioimmunoassay for 11,472 adult-onset diabetic patients who visited the Asan Medical Center from 1998 to 2007. According to the fasting C-peptide levels, we classified the patients into an insulin dependent diabetes mellitus group (IDDM; C-peptide < 0.6 ng/mL) and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus group (NIDDM; C-peptide > or = 1.0 ng/mL). Other clinical and laboratory data were obtained from medical records. RESULTS: Among the 11,147 diabetic patients, 9,250 patients were classified as NIDDM, 922 patients were classified as IDDM and 975 patients excluded. Within the latter group 472 patients were to absolute insulin deficient (C-peptide < 0.1 ng/mL). The prevalence of GADA was 22.0% in the IDDM group and 4.7% in the NIDDM group. GADA was more prevalent in younger-onset NIDDM patients (25~40 years of age; 12.4%) than in older-onset NIDDM patients (> or = 40 years of age; 3.8%). The GADA-positive NIDDM patients had lower C-peptide and BMI levels, and higher rates of typical diabetic symptoms and insulin treatment. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of GADA in Korean patients with IDDM and NIDDM was lower than that reported in Western populations. It is thus suggested that autoimmunity is a rarer cause of diabetes in Korean people. However, since over 10% of younger-onset NIDDM patients were positive for GADA, routine GADA measurement in such patients is recommended.
