AIMS: Associations have been reported between age at menarche and the later risk of gestational diabetes. However, it is not known whether these associations reflect differences in insulin sensitivity and/or pancreatic β-cell function in pregnancy. METHODS: We examined this question in women enrolled in the prospective Cambridge Baby Growth Study who recalled their age at menarche in questionnaires during pregnancy. Polynomial logistic and linear regression models were used to relate menarche timing to the risk of gestational diabetes, both unadjusted and adjusted for the Homeostasis Model Assessments of insulin resistance (HOMA IR) and pancreatic β-cell function (HOMA B) at week 28 of pregnancy...

AIMS: Decreased insulin clearance has been reported to be associated with insulin resistance-related disorders and incident type 2 diabetes. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether higher levels of uric acid (UA), a known risk factor of type 2 diabetes, are associated with a reduced insulin clearance. METHODS: 440 non-diabetic individuals were stratified in tertiles according to serum UA levels. Insulin clearance and skeletal muscle insulin sensitivity were assessed by euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp...

In recent years, epigenetics has emerged as an important form of biological regulation involving chromatin control of gene expression. The mechanisms of this fine-tuned regulation are susceptible to changes forced by environmental stimuli and nutritional factors and may be potentially reversible. Dysregulation of epigenetic processes has important consequences for the pathogenesis of complex and multifactorial diseases such as type 2 diabetes (T2D) and vascular complications. Along with DNA methylation (DNA-me), histone modifications and RNA-based mechanisms as the major epigenetic controllers, small non-coding RNAs known as microRNAs (miRNAs) have their own important implications for the pathogenesis of diabetes...

AIM: In 2010, in light of the data coming from the HAPO study, the International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups (IADPSG) proposed a new detection strategy and diagnostic criteria for gestational diabetes based on a one-step approach with a 75 g OGTT. This review analyzes and discusses the bright and dark sides of their application. METHODS: The assessment of these recommendations by the international organizations involved in the care of gestational diabetes and a series of observational, retrospective and prospective studies that have been published since 2010 regarding the use of the IADPSG recommendations have been evaluated...

AIMS: Ankle-brachial index (ABI) is the most commonly used test when diagnosing peripheral vascular disease and is considered a marker for cardiovascular risk. Transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO2 ), a test associated with microvascular function, has in several studies shown better correlation with diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) healing. Whether a low TcPO2 could be a marker for mortality in the high-risk population of DFU patients has not been evaluated before. The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of TcPO2 in comparison with ABI and toe blood pressure (TBP) on 1-year mortality in type 2 diabetes patients with DFU...
