Platelet insulin receptor determination in non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.

Abstract

The platelet membrane insulin receptors of healthy and non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetic patients were studied. Receptor number and affinity proved to be decreased in type 2 diabetes mellitus. The changes in platelet insulin receptor characteristics are in good correlation with the alterations reported in other tissues or cells. The possible role of these phenomena in the pathogenesis of disturbed platelet function in diabetics needs further investigation.
