Type 2 Diabetes in Youth: Epidemiology and Pathophysiology

May 2011
Diabetes Care;May2011 Supplement 2, Vol. 34, pS161
Academic Journal
The article examines current knowledge regarding the pathophysiology and natural history of the glucose homeostasis alterations in youth. The epidemiology of type 2 diabetes is described. Several complications in which youths with type 2 diabetes are at risk include hypertension, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and metabolic syndrome. Insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity are the principal components of blood glucose regulation pathway.

    Adropin is a peptide hormone that was discovered in 2008 by Kumar et al. This protein consists of 76 amino acids, and it was originally described as a secreted peptide, with residues 1-33 encoding a secretory signal peptide sequence. The amino acid sequence of this protein in humans, mice and...

    Insulin resistance can be broadly defined as a subnormal biological response to endogenous or exogenous insulin. This definition may pertain to many biological actions of insulin in many tissues of the body. Insulin is essential for normal growth and development; and for normal homeostasis of...

    A large and increasing number of people in all over the world suffer from obesity, metabolic syndrome (MS) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Attenuation of the heat shock response (HSR), which was originally identified as a cellular defense mechanism, is one of the key factors involved in the...

    The human protein encoded by the FOXO1 gene functions as a transcription factor of insulin signalling key genes. In this study we investigated the role of genetic variation in the FOXO1 gene in susceptibility to type 2 diabetes (T2D) and relevant metabolic traits. We genotyped 6 haplotype...
