People of South Asian origin are at high risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D), but the underpinning mechanisms are not fully understood. We determined ethnic differences in acylcarnitine, amino acid and sphingolipid concentrations and determined the associations with T2D. Associations...

Diabetic distal sensorimotor polyneuropathy (DSPN) is a frequent, disabling complication of diabetes mellitus. There is increasing evidence that sphingolipids play a role in insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Whether neurotoxic 1-deoxy-sphingolipids are elevated in DSPN patients' plasma and...
