    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
