Unknown Glucose Metabolism Disorders In Patients With Coronary Artery Disease

Overview

This study aimed to examine the prevalence of glucose metabolism disorders (GMD)in the patients with coronary artery disease and the relationship between different GMDs and coronary artery disease (CAD).

Detailed Description

Context: There are more than 220 million people diagnosed with diabetes mellitus (DM) in the world. DM is a serious risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). This study aimed to examine the prevalence of glucose metabolism disorders (GMD) in te patients with coronary artery disease and the relationship between different GMDs and CAD.

Settings: 230 patients with coronary artery disease and without any known GMDs were included the study. Coronary angiography was used to diagnose CAD. Patients were administered the 75 g Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT).

Interventions

  • Other: ogtt for patients with coronary artery disease
    • 75 g OGTT

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • coronary artery disease
    • patients with coronary artery disease

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Frequency of unknown glucose metabolism disorders in patients with coronary artery disease
    • Time Frame: 1 year
    • Results: While GMDs were detected in 58.26% (n=134 patients) of CAD patients, 41.74% of them (n=96 patients) were found to have normal glucose metabolism.

Secondary Measures

  • Fasting and 120 minute glucose levels have relation with vessels’ stenosis.
    • Time Frame: 1 year
    • Fasting glucose level was found to have a significant correlation with the total number of stenotic coronary vessels (p=0.0001) and the stenosis rate of all vessels . OGTT 120-minute glucose levels were found to have a significant correlation with the total number of stenotic coronary vessels and the stenosis rate of vessels with the exception of LAD.
