Diabetes mellitus is becoming an increasingly common metabolic disorder.1 The condition is characterized by impaired glucose metabolism manifested by hyperglycemia. Diabetes also affects fat and protein metabolism. Studies in humans have demonstrated that effects on protein and amino acid metabolism differ in subjects with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In addition, the effects on protein metabolism in these conditions differ in humans from the effects seen in vitro and in animal models of type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
