These studies have revealed increased, normal, or reduced GIP levels in patients with diabetes. Considering all studies together, there does not appear to be a general defect in GIP secretion. If anything, a slight increase in postprandial GIP levels might occur in patients with early type 2 diabetes, but clearly the differences in GIP levels would not sufficiently explain any alterations in insulin of glucose concentrations.
