"When we evaluated the pancreatic cancer incidence according to fasting glucose
levels using a national cohort database, we found the number of pancreatic cancer cases rose as fasting glucose
Dong-Hoe Koo, M.D., Ph.D., from Kangbuk Samsung Hospital in Seoul, South Korea, and colleagues used prospectively collected data to examine the correlation between fasting glucose
levels and pancreatic cancer risk.
Use of a continuous glucose-monitoring device provides a better picture of glucose behavior throughout the day, as opposed to blood tests that evaluate fasting glucose
or hemoglobin A1c.
Late eaters, after consuming just 1 percent of their daily calories after 6 p.m., had higher fasting glucose
levels (a test taken after fasting for eight hours), higher insulin levels, and higher blood pressure readings.
All study participants had an initial fasting glucose
test and an oral glucose tolerance test.
All six parameters, i.e., fasting glucose
, post prandial glucose, glycosylated haemoglobin, avoidance of hypoglycaemia, avoidance of nocturnal hypoglycaemia, and minimization of glycaemic variability, are associated with cardiovascular outcomes.
Researchers from Aizawa Hospital in Japan found that increased fasting glucose
, higher body mass index (BMI) and impaired insulin sensitivity were detectable 10 years before the diagnosis of diabetes as well as prediabetes.

From the NHANES data, only subjects who had data on sagittal abdominal diameter (SAD), waist circumference, BMI (calculated from measures of height and weight), oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), fasting glucose
, HbA1c, and HOMA-IR were included in the present investigation.
Anthropometric parameters including age, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, waist-hip ratio (WHR), diastolic and systolic blood pressure, lipid profile and fasting glucose
, serum resistin and insulin of three hundred over weight, obese males and females, 17 to 30 years and 100 comparable control subjects were included.
The associations were stronger as fasting glucose
