Introduction: Women with gestational diabetes (GD) have an increased risk of developing future type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). A reclassification oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is currently recomended in the postpartum period. However, most studies report a compliance rate below 50% and as low as 23%.Objectives: We aimed to study predictors of missing postpartum OGTT in women with GD.Materials and Methods: Retrospecti...

Glucose alterations, insulin resistance, hypertension, and activation of the renin-aldosterone system are strictly associated in pediatric obesity

Antoniotti Valentina , Amore Martina , Bellone Simonetta , Ricotti Roberta , De Grandi Roberta , Caputo Marina , Spadaccini Daniele , Mancioppi Valentina , Aimaretti Gianluca , Prodam Flavia

Background: The increase of global childhood obesity has led to an increase of associated co-morbidities also at a young age. The pro-inflammatory state and insulin resistance are two master regulators of several complications, including hypertension and pre-diabetes frequently connected in a complex cross-talk.Aim: To evaluate the relationship between glucose alterations and blood pressure and the pathogenetic involvement of the renin-aldosterone system...

Plasma amino acid profile in women with polycystic ovary syndrome and its correlation with metabolic disturbances

Paczkowska Katarzyna , Rachon Dominik , Berg Andrzej , Siomkajlo Marta , Rybka Jacek , Kapczynska Katarzyna , Bolanowski Marek , Daroszewski Jacek

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a heterogenous endocrinopathy commonly diagnosed in reproductive age women, predisposing to the development of metabolic disturbances. However, the mechanisms underlying the connection between PCOS and metabolic disorders are still not well understood. The aim of the study was to investigate amino acid (AA) profile in women with PCOS and to assess its relation with metabolic disturbances.Methods: 326 women:...

Exploring the role of skeletal muscle Mineralocorticoid Receptor in glucose metabolism and insulin signaling

Feraco Alessandra , Gorini Stefania , Marzolla Vincenzo , Mammi Caterina , Armani Andrea , Caprio Massimiliano

Mineralocorticoid Receptor (MR) is able to regulate the transcription of a number of genes in the myotube, nevertheless the role of this steroid hormone receptor in skeletal muscle (SM) metabolism needs to be clarified. SM represents a major site for glucose uptake and local metabolic derangements play a pivotal role in the development of insulin resistance (IR). The aim of this study was to investigate the contribution of MR in mediating SM metabolic alterations in a mouse mo...

Sex steroids regulate liver fat content and body fat distribution in both men and women: a study in transgender persons

Tebbens Marieke , Schutte Moya , Troelstra Marian , Bruinstroop Eveline , de Mutsert Renee , Nederveen Aart , den Heijer Martin , Bisschop Peter H.

Objective: Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and liver fat content are associated with insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease and show clear sex differences. Our objective is to determine the effect of estradiol and testosterone on VAT and liver fat content in trans women (assigned male at birth, identify as female) and trans men (assigned female at birth, identify as male).Design: Open-label partly randomized intervention study in 8 trans women and 1...

Evidence for three superimposed components, via which metformin affects blood glucose in obese mice

Kaplanian Mairam , Philippe Cecile , Beghini Marianna , Metz Matthaeus , Abu Eid Sameer , Kautzky-Willer Alexandra , Scherer Thomas , Furnsinn Clemens

Introduction: Despite a plethora of suggested targets and pathways, the mechanism of anti-hyperglycaemic metformin action is still unknown. The present study critically re-analysed protocols broadly applied in preclinical rodent studies.Methods: Obese male C57BL/6J mice on high fat diet were treated with metformin in the form of a single dose, daily intraperitoneal injections, admixture to drinking water, or continuous infusion via intraperitoneal minipu...

The role of chemokines in type 1 diabetes-associated neuropathy

Baldimtsi Evangelia , Papadopoulou-Marketou Nektaria , Jenmalm Maria , Wahlberg Jeanette

Background and aims: Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D). In this study, we explore the importance of circulating chemokines for the development of diabetic neuropathy (DN) in T1D.Materials and methods: This study was a cross-sectional analysis of patients with childhood onset T1D followed prospectively in a long-term longitudinal cohort study. Fifty-two patients (20 women/32 men; mean age 28 &#177...
