Abstract: Objective. So far, high prevalence of metabolic symptoms accompanying diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) appears not definitely elucidated because of their possible origin from other disorders such as diabetes and/or body mass differences. From such reasons this study was aimed to compare non-diabetic DISH patients to a group of age and BMI matched controls in order to distinguish the influence of DISH proper on metabolic parameters free of additional metabolic effects caused by diabetes and/or body weight differences.
Methods. Both groups of patients were subjected to oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and fasting serum levels of glucose, insulin, C-peptide, growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3 (IGF-BP3) were assayed. Fasting serum total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) and uric acid were determined as well. The indices of insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion were calculated.
Results. With the exception of decreased NEFA serum level and decreased insulinogenic index and insulin/C-peptide ratio in DISH patients any other significant differences in serum parameters and indices of insulin sensitivity were not found.
Conclusions. The data obtained suggest impaired ß-cell pancreatic stimulation and increased insulin hepatic extraction in DISH. It is assumed that the above mentioned conditions, if persisting for a long time, might lead to decreased ability of insulin to maintain normal serum glucose level and consequently to insulin resistance which is highly prevalent in symptomatic DISH patients.
