Compr Ther. Fall-Winter 2009;35(3-4):155-9.

Abstract

The earliest diagnosis of diabetes is a mandate to arrest the worldwide epidemic of diabetes. The insulin assay with the oral glucose tolerance provides the earliest diagnosis. The pathology of diabetes occurs in those with normal blood sugars. With earliest diagnosis, the 'diabetes epidemic' can be arrested and then reversed.
