    Pediatr Diabetes 14:181-8. 2013

    Diabetes Care 36:195-201. 2013
    ..The 90-min MMTT-stimulated CP ≥0.2 nmol/L (90CP) is related to improved clinical outcomes, and CP ≥0.1 nmol/L is the equivalent fasting measure (FCP). We assessed whether 90CP or FCP are alternatives to a full MMTT...

    Nicholas J Thomas
    Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust, Exeter, UK
    Ann Clin Biochem 49:363-8. 2012
    ..Adjusting for urine creatinine levels allows for differences in urine concentration. Creatinine excretion is known to be higher in men due to gender differences in muscle mass. We investigated the impact of gender on UCPCR...
