  • Red cell Na+/Li+ countertransport in non-insulin-dependent diabetics with diabetic nephropathy. Gall, Mari-Anne; Rossing, Peter; Jensen, Jan S.; Funder, Jørgen; Parving, Hans-Henrik // Kidney International;Jan1991, Vol. 39 Issue 1, p135 

    Genetic predisposition to essential hypertension, as indicated by increased maximal velocity of Na+/Li+ countertransport in red cells, has been suggested as a marker for the risk of developing diabetic nephropathy. To evaluate the validity of this concept in non-insulin-dependent diabetics, we...

  • Hypercholesterolaemia, signs of islet microangiopathy and altered angiogenesis precede onset of type 2 diabetes in the Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rat. Giroix, M-H.; Irminger, J-C.; Lacraz, G.; Noll, C.; Calderari, S.; Ehses, J.; Coulaud, J.; Cornut, M.; Kassis, N.; Schmidlin, F.; Paul, J-L.; Kergoat, M.; Janel, N.; Halban, P.; Homo-Delarche, F. // Diabetologia;Sep2011, Vol. 54 Issue 9, p2451 

    Aims/hypothesis: The adult non-obese Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rat model of type 2 diabetes, particularly females, carries in addition to hyperglycaemia a genetic predisposition towards dyslipidaemia, including hypercholesterolaemia. As cholesterol-induced atherosclerosis may be programmed in utero, we...

  • Frequency of coeliac disease in Hungarian children with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Arató, András; Körner, Anna; Veres, Gábor; Dezsöfi, Antal; Ujpál, Ildikó; Madácsy, László // European Journal of Pediatrics;2003, Vol. 162 Issue 1, p1 

    Coeliac disease and type 1 diabetes mellitus can frequently coexist, presumably due to a common genetic predisposition. The present study was designed to evaluate the frequency of coeliac disease among Hungarian diabetic children and to study the effect of gluten-free diet on glycaemic control....

    Context: Insulin resistance a physiological condition is marked by hyperglycemia and failure of cells to respond to normal action thus hyperinsulinemia. It is prevalent in individuals having genetic predisposition and family history of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Physically inactive individuals...

  • The Influence of Familial Predisposition to Cardiovascular Complications upon Childhood Obesity Treatment. Nielsen, Louise A.; Bøjsøe, Christine; Kloppenborg, Julie T.; Trier, Cæcilie; Gamborg, Michael; Holm, Jens-Christian // PLoS ONE;Mar2015, Vol. 10 Issue 3, p1 

    Introduction: The aim was to investigate whether a familial predisposition to obesity related cardiovascular complications was associated with the degree of obesity at baseline and/or changes in the degree of obesity during a multidisciplinary childhood obesity treatment program. Methods: The...

  • Genetic Control of β -Cell Mass Homeostasis. Soundarapandian, Mangala M.; Nieves, Maria L.; Pasquier, Roxane; Bergström, Ulrika; Atkinson, Mark A.; Tyrberg, Björn // Open Endocrinology Journal;2010 Special Issue, p11 

    Control of β-cell function and mass is tightly linked to glucose homeostasis. Failing β-cells inevitably lead to diabetes. Recently, several contradictory studies have been published arguing against or in favor of various mechanisms controlling β-cell mass regulation. Here we review the...

    The need for determining Aboriginal population-specific risk factors of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus has become increasingly urgent as the incidence and prevalence rates are increasing rapidly and as the need for prevention of diabetes in this population have become a necessity. This is a review of...

  • Pathophysiology of prediabetes and treatment implications for the prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Bergman, Michael // Endocrine (1355008X);Jun2013, Vol. 43 Issue 3, p504 

    Type 2 diabetes and other non-communicable diseases (NCD) are a growing public health challenge globally. An estimated 285 million people, corresponding to 6.4 % of the world's adult population has diabetes. This is expected to reach 552 million by 2030, 7.8 % of the adult population, with the...

    Purpose: Patients with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) have been reported to exhibit the same genetic susceptibility as that observed in those with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Recent polymorphism studies have shown that several genes are related to T2DM and GDM. The aim of this study...

    Based on epidemiological, clinic, biochemical and hormonal data (both personal and international), our personal view is that natural history of autoimmune type 1 diabetes could include the following stages: 1) The presence of a complex genetic predisposition towards β cell autoimmunity...
