Background: The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is increasing world wide and amongst factors that aggravate the risk is diabetes mellitus (DM), also in epidemic development. However, although DM is a potentially modifiable risk factor for AF, few, if any, studies have explored the...
- Estudio Parto: postpartum diabetes prevention program for hispanic women with abnormal glucose tolerance in pregnancy: a randomised controlled trial - study protocol. Chasan-Taber, Lisa; Marcus, Bess H.; Rosal, Milagros C.; Tucker, Katherine L.; Hartman, Sheri J.; Pekow, Penelope; Braun, Barry; Moore Simas, Tiffany A.; Solomon, Caren G.; Manson, JoAnn E.; Markenson, Glenn // BMC Pregnancy & Childbirth;2014, Vol. 14 Issue 1, p1
Background: Diabetes and obesity have reached epidemic proportions in the U.S. with rates consistently higher among Hispanics as compared to non-Hispanic whites. Among Hispanic women diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), 50% will go on to develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years of...
- Effect of genetic variation in the organic cation transporter 1 (OCT1) on metformin action. Yan Shu; Sheardown, Steven A.; Brown, Chaline; Owen, Ryan P.; Shuzhong Zhang; Castro, Richard A.; Ianculescu, Alexandra G.; Lin Yue; Lo, Joan C.; Burchard, Esteban G.; Brett, Claire M.; Giacomini, Kathleen M. // Journal of Clinical Investigation;May2007, Vol. 117 Issue 5, p1422
Metformin is among the most widely prescribed drugs for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Organic cation transporter 1 (OCT1) plays a role in the hepatic uptake of metformin, but its role in the therapeutic effects of the drug, which involve activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), is...

- Identification of Persons at High Risk for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Do We Need the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test? Stern, Michael P.; Williams, Ken; Haffner, Steven M. // Annals of Internal Medicine;4/16/2002, Vol. 136 Issue 8, p575
Background: The standard method of identifying persons at high risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus involves detection of impaired glucose tolerance, which requires a costly and inconvenient 2-hour oral glucose tolerance test. Because clinical trials have indicated that diabetes is preventable by...
- The Prevalent Glu23Lys Polymorphism in the Potassium Inward Rectifier 6.2 (KIR6.2) Gene Is Associated With Impaired Glucagon Suppression in Response to Hyperglycemia. Tschritter, Otto; Stumvoll, Michael; Machicao, Fausto; Holzwarth, Martin; Weisser, Melanie; Maerker, Elke; Teigeler, Anna; Haring, Hans; Häring, Hans; Fritsche, Andreas // Diabetes;Sep2002, Vol. 51 Issue 9, p2854
Genetic factors play an important role in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes. The relevance to type 2 diabetes of the common polymorphism Glu23Lys in the potassium inward rectifier 6.2 (KIR6.2) gene is still controversial. The aim of this study was to assess whether this polymorphism influences...
