Abstract

We have studied N-acetyl-β-d-glucosaminidase and α-d-mannosidase activities in human sera from 35 control subjects, 47 normo- and hyperinsulinemic obese persons, and 12 diabetic patients after a fasting period of 12 h and at 30, 60, 90, and 120 min after an oral glucose overload. The results show a significantly higher activity of these 2 enzymes in obese subjects and diabetic patients, of similar magnitude, especially in those obese persons with a higher grade of obesity. Moreover, the activity of these glycosidases decreases in a similar way in all these 3 groups after the oral glucose overload.
