Mutations of the hepatocyte nuclear factor 4α (HNF4α) gene give rise to maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 1 (MODY1). Although many such mutations have been identified in affected individuals, part of these mutations have been characterized with regard to their pathological relevance. We here identified a missense mutation (c.773G>A, p.R258H) of HNF4A in a mother and daughter with early-onset diabetes and impaired insulin secretion. In silico simulation and in vitro luciferase reporter analyses indicated that the mutation impairs the stability of self-dimerization and the transactivation activity of HNF4α...

This study evaluated the accuracy of interstitial glucose measurements by flush glucose monitoring (FGM) and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). Five diabetic patients simultaneously underwent FGM (FreeStyle Libre Pro) and CGM (iPro™ 2) and their glucose levels were compared with venous blood and capillary blood glucose levels. The range of daily venous blood glucose levels (30 measurements) was 70-245 mg/dl with a median of 138 mg/dl. There were good correlations of glucose levels measured by FGM (r2 = 0...

Anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody (GADA) is an important islet cell-associated autoantibody for the diagnosis of autoimmune type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). In Japan, the GADA assay kit was recently changed from radioimmunoassay (RIA) to enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Thereafter, a mismatched measurement between the two tests became apparent in clinical situations. This study aimed to clarify the actual extent of mismatch between the two measurements on a larger-scale real-world clinical practice...

OBJECTIVE: The relationship between glycaemic variability (GV) and diabetic complications has gained much interest and remains under debate. Moreover, the association of GV with diabetic complications has not been examined in latent autoimmune diabetes of the adult (LADA). Therefore, we evaluated the relationships among several metrics of GV with diabetic retinopathy (DR) in patients with LADA and type 2 diabetes (T2DM). METHODS: A total of 192 patients with LADA and 2927 patients with T2DM were enrolled...

Diabetic foot ulceration has been a serious issue over the past decades in Asia, causing economic and social problems. Therefore, it is important to identify and reduce risk factors of diabetic foot. Cigarette smoking has been reported to be associated with diabetes and its macrovascular complications, but the relationship between smoking and diabetic foot ulcers is still unclear. In this review, we summarizes the effects of cigarette smoking on diabetic foot ulcers with respect to peripheral neuropathy, vascular alterations and wound healing...

AIMS: We aimed to investigate whether there are differences in the risk factors or markers for the progression of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic nephropathy (DN) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a 3-year retrospective cohort study on 604 patients with T2DM mellitus. The outcomes were the progression of DR (worsening of the DR stage) and DN [an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decline >12%] at the 3-year follow-up...

AIMS/INTRODUCTION: To evaluate the contribution of pancreatic alpha cell function to the dawn phenomenon, insulin sensitivity, hepatic glucose uptake (HGU), and glycemic variability in patients with type 1 diabetes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 40 patients with type 1 diabetes, arginine stimulation tests were performed, and the area under the curve of glucagon was measured using radioimmunoassays (AUCglc RIA ) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (AUCglc ELISA )...

AIMS/INTRODUCTION: Duodenal-jejunal bypass (DJB) surgery has been reported to relieve diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) effectively. However, the specific mechanisms remain largely unknown. This study was designed to determine the alterations of myocardial glucose uptake (MGU) after DJB and their effects on DCM. MATERIALS AND METHODS: DJB and Sham surgeries were performed in diabetic rats induced by high fat diet and low dose of streptozotocin, with chow-diet fed rats as control...

Diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of end stage renal failure in Japan. Clarification of its detailed pathogenesis and development of therapeutic methods are urgent issues. In this article in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, Pan et al.[1] showed a usefulness of weighted gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA) and identified a potentially important candidate molecules that regulate diabetic nephropathy.

Obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus has been increasing worldwide and are considered to be related to physical inactivity and dysregulated eating behavior. Although environmental factors are important in the progression of obesity, the contribution of adipose tissue dysfunction and related genetic factors have been less clear.

AIMS: To examine the association between adult-onset diabetes and life-course body weight changes. METHODS: In a cross-sectional study, 17,398 Japanese female nurses aged ≥30 completed a self-administered questionnaire in 2001-2007. Body weight indices were calculated for three life stages: birth weight (adjusted for gestational age), body mass index (BMI) at age 18, and current BMI. Odds ratios for being diagnosed with adult-onset diabetes were calculated according to the combined body weight categories of two life stages: at birth and age 18; and at age 18 and the survey (current)...

AIMS/INTRODUCTION: The preservation of pancreatic β-cell mass is an essential factor in the onset and development of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Recently, sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors have been launched as anti-hyperglycemic agents, and their organ-protective effects are attracting attention. They are also reported to have favorable effects on the preservation of pancreatic β-cell mass, but the appropriate timing for the administration of sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors is obscure...

INTRODUCTION: Diabetes is an important risk factor for atherosclerotic disease. The initiating factor of atherosclerosis is local endothelial cell injury. The arachidonic acid metabolite, 12(S)-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (12(S)-HETE), may be involved in this process. In recent years, some reports discussed the effect of 12(S)-HETE on vascular endothelial cell function. In this study, we investigated the effect of 12(S)-HETE on vascular endothelial cell function in high-glucose conditions and the mechanisms involved...

Obesity has been recognized as a worldwide problem, especially for developing insulin resistance and increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes. The increased adipose tissue associated with obesity secretes various kinds of cytokines, adipokines, and lipokines, and triggers systemic inflammatory response, resulting in the disturbance of metabolic homeostasis.
