|[en] Objective. –A recent consensus conference has proposed guidelines for the monitoring for diabetes in patients with schizophrenia and also
identifies the need of long-term prospective studies.
Method. – A large scale prospective study on metabolic risks of antipsychotic medication is currently ongoing. At baseline, patients get a
full laboratory screening, ECG and an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Baseline data on 100 non-diabetic patients at study inclusion and
stable on medication for at least 6 months are presented.
Results. – Glucose abnormalities are found in 22% of patients at baseline.A monitoring protocol based only on fasting glucose would not
have detected 63.6% of these patients with classifiable glucose abnormalities in our sample. Fasting insulin and measures for insulin resistance
have a high predictive value for abnormalities late in the OGTT.
Conclusion. – Already at baseline, metabolic problems are frequently present in patients with schizophrenia treated with antipsychotics.
Adding assessment of fasting insulin in a monitoring protocol improves detection of glucose abnormalities late in an OGTT.
