Kraft patterns in people with normal glucose tolerance

One failing of academic literature is the cost of getting articles if you do not belong to an institution that has access to the paper you want.

But if you are interested in learning more about the Kraft patterns, then here is access to our latest paper – free – until 12 August, 2016.

This is the first paper that really shows that hyperinsulinaemia potentially affects a large number of people with normal glucose tolerance who are not overweight.

We know that hyperinsulinaemia is associated with many metabolic diseases.

It’s often thought that fasting insulin levels can predict whether you are hyperinsulinaemic or not, but as you can see from the image below, people with patterns I-III and V have very similar serum insulin levels at baseline.  You only really see what is happening to their insulin response after the glucose load.
