National Taiwan University Hospital
  Purpose
We, the investigators at National Taiwan University Hospital, want to compare patients' islet cell function, insulin sensitivity and risk of chronic complications with normal subjects. Moreover, we want to examine whether they are at a higher risk of having metabolic syndrome and to answer whether we should screen the phenotypes of metabolic syndrome in impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) patients. Then, we want to examine the association between insulin sensitivity and islet functions.
