Polyol Pathway in the Central Nervous System

common.study.values.description

Investigating the Role of the Polyol Pathway in the Central Nervous System

Patients will undergo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) scanning to noninvasively measure intracerebral and plasma metabolite levels at baseline and following 2 and 4 hours of hyperglycemia. Subjects will also undergo a lumbar puncture at a separate occasion to assess cerebrospinal fluid levels of metabolites.
