  1. 1. FOXC2 and CAPN10 as candidate genes for obesity, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Endocrinology

    Author : Emma Carlsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedical sciences; Biomedicinska vetenskaper; Type 2 diabetes; Genetics; Obesity;

    Abstract : The worldwide prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes is increasing rapidly. Both disorders depend on genetic and environmental factors. The studies included in this thesis investigated the possible association of the FOXC2 and CAPN10 genes with obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and related phenotypes. READ MORE

  2. 2. The genetic background of gestational diabetes mellitus

    University dissertation from Dept of Diabetes and Celiac Disease

    Author : Anastasia Papadopoulou; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HLA; Gestational diabetes mellitus; TCF7L2; PTPN22; Post partum diabetes; Type 1 Diabetes; Type 2 Diabetes; Islet Cell Autoantibodies;

    Abstract : The aims of this work is to better determine the genetic background of gestational diabetes (GDM) and to examine how specific genes affect the development of diabetes post partum. In the DiPiS (Diabetes Prediction in Skåne) study we typed for HLA-DQB1 alleled, the transcription factor 7-like 2(TCF7L2) rs7903146, rs12255372 and rs7901695 SNPs, the 1858 C>T SNP of the protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor 22 (PTPN22) gene and we tested for the presence of islet cell autoantibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (GAD65), insulinoma-associated antigen 2 (IA-2) and insulin in women who had been diagnosed with GDM at least once during 2000-2004.

  3. 3. Genetic and Metabolic Markers for the Development of Diabetes after Gestational Diabetes Mellitus

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Ekelund; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Oral glucose tolerance tests; Autoimmunity; Insulin sensitivity; Gestational diabetes mellitus; Insulin secretion; HbA1c; Fasting glucose; FTO-gene; Postpartum diabetes;

    Abstract : The aims of this work were to determine the prevalence of postpartum diabetes among women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in a prospective study 5 years postpartum; to characterize these women according to insulin secretion, insulin sensitivity, autoimmunity and genetics; and to identify possible markers and predictors for the development of manifest diabetes. The subjects were recruited through a regional screening programme in which oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTTs) are routinely offered to all pregnant women. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic and immunological risk factors of gestational diabetes mellitus

    University dissertation from Lund University Department of Clinical Sciences Diabetes and Endocrinology Malmö University Hospital
