AIMS: DNA release by dying β cells leads to increased circulating levels of unmethylated preproinsulin (INS) DNA. Consistent with large-scale β cell destruction, this biomarker is elevated before and at the time of type 1 diabetes (T1D) onset. We measured serum INS DNA to evaluate whether β cells continue to undergo death in later stages of T1D. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed fasting banked sera from a cross-section of 90 participants in the T1D Exchange Registry with long standing T1D (median duration of 9 years)...

Dear Editor, Subcutaneous granuloma annulare (SGA) is considered a rare clinical variant of granuloma annulare, a common self-healing chronic inflammatory disorder that may appear in childhood as well as in adult age (1-3). A 29-year-old female patient reported the onset of several small subcutaneous nodules on the dorsal aspect of the second interphalangeal joint of the left medius finger and the left elbow, accompanied by vague joint pain, had occurred 13 years ago. Specific markers for rheumatoid arthritis were negative, leading to a diagnosis of sero-negative rheumatoid arthritis, for which treatment with methotrexate was initiated...

Autoantibodies against Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase (GADA), insulinoma antigen-2 (IA-2A), insulin (IAA) and the most recently Zinc transporter 8 (ZnT8A) are one of the most reliable biomarkers for autoimmune diabetes in both children and adults. They are today the only biomarkers that can distinguish Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) from phenotypically type 2 diabetes. As the frequency of autoantibodies at diagnosis in childhood type 1 diabetes depends on age, GADA is by far the most common in adult onset autoimmune diabetes, especially LADA...

Aims: Much of the diabetes burden is caused by its complications. This cross-sectional study aimed to determine the prevalence and risk factors for diabetic microvascular complications (retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy) in a high-risk population. Methods: We collected information via a structured questionnaire and directly from the patient's record on 1034 adult type 2 diabetic patients who were attending outpatient clinics in Qatar. Results: The mean age of the patients was 55 ± 10 years, and the mean duration of diabetes was 12...

Poor sleep and obesity are both extraordinarily common in the US adolescent population and often occur simultaneously. This review explores the links between obesity and sleep, outlining what is known about the relationships between sleep characteristics, obesity, and cardiometabolic risk factors in youth. Sleep duration is less than optimal in teens, and decreases as age increases. This is detrimental to overall well-being and is associated with obesity in children, adolescents, and young adults. Accordingly, inadequate sleep duration is associated with poor diet quality, decreased insulin sensitivity, hyperglycemia, and prevalent cardiometabolic risk factors...

Pediatricians are trained to provide non-surgical medical care to children. Improvements in medical treatments and surgical techniques have extended the survival of children with congenital diseases and chronic illnesses. Consequently, pediatricians may provide continuous medical service to their patients into adulthood. Meanwhile, as Taiwan's birth rate has fallen to one of the lowest in the world, pediatricians are encountering growing competition. As a source of continued revenue, pediatricians could also provide medical care to adults with common diseases and patients with adult-onset chronic diseases...

OBJECTIVES: Regular physical exercise may preserve β cell function in newly diagnosed adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, clinical trials to test this theory require the recruitment and retention of adults with new-onset T1D, which can be challenging. We sought to determine the overall experiences of newly diagnosed adults with T1D in an exercise study, to understand issues that influence the retention of trial participants in such studies. DESIGN: Qualitative methodology using individual face-to-face (n=6) and telephone interviews (n=14)...

BACKGROUND: Low-income and middle-income countries with populations that are chronically undernourished in early life are undergoing a nutrition transition and are experiencing an epidemic of cardiometabolic disease. These dual burdens are thought to be causally related; therefore, the extent to which improvements in early-life nutrition can offset adult-onset disease is important. The aim of this study was to examine whether improvement of protein-energy nutrition from conception to age 2 years can attenuate the risk of cardiometabolic disease...

Complex diseases, such as diabetes, are influenced by comprehensive transcriptional networks. Genome-wide association studies have revealed that variants located in regulatory elements for pancreatic transcription factors are linked to diabetes, including those functionally linked to the paired box transcription factor, Pax6. Pax6 deletions in adult mice cause rapid onset of classic diabetes, but the full spectrum of pancreatic Pax6 regulators is unknown. Using a regulatory element discovery approach we identified two novel Pax6 pancreatic cis-regulatory elements in a poorly characterised regulatory desert...
