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

    Author : Nael Shaat; diabetes och endokrinologi Genomik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GDM; Association; genetics; gestational diabetes mellitus metabolic syndrome; MODY; type 1 diabetes; risk factors; type 2 diabetes; Endocrinology; diabetology; secreting systems; autoimmunity; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a heterogeneous disorder that is defined as carbohydrate intolerance with onset or first recognition during pregnancy. Impaired beta-cell function and insulin resistance are the hallmarks of GDM. READ MORE

  2. 2. Clinical, Genetic and Metabolic Characterisation of LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults)

    Author : ÅsaLinda Lethagen; diabetes och endokrinologi Genomik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; metabolic syndrome; insulin sensitivity; insulin secretion; GADabs; glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies; Type 2 diabetes; LADA; Type 1 diabetes; IDDM1; IDDM2; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) comprises about 10% of patients initially diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but who are positive for pancreatic islet antibodies, especially to glutamic acid decarboxylase (GADabs). The present studies focused on clinical, genetic and metabolic characterisation of patients with LADA. READ MORE

    Abstract : Graves’ disease (GD) is an autoimmune disease characterized by hyperthyroidism and is caused by an interplayof genetic and environmental factors. One-third of patients with GD develop Graves’ ophthalmopathy (GO). Keyprocesses in the pathogenesis of GO are inflammation and adipogenesis in orbital tissue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring Positional and Functional Candidate Genes for Type 2 Diabetes

    Author : Johan Holmkvist; diabetes och endokrinologi Genomik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; MODY; type 2 diabetes; Endocrinology; calcium channel; insulin secretion; insulin; single nucleotide polymorphism SNP glucose; linkage disequilibrium; genetic association; genetics;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex, metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycaemia because of defects in insulin secretion and sensitivity. The rapid increase in T2D is likely to reflect the influence of both genetic and environmental factors in disease development. However, the genetic aetiology of T2D remains largely unknown.

  5. 5. Genetic Factors Contributing to Hypertension. With Emphasis on Hypertension in Type 2 Diabetes

    Author : Kristina Bengtsson Boström; diabetes och endokrinologi Genomik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; primary care; genetics; Hypertension; type 2 diabetes;

    Abstract : The causes of hypertension (HT) and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are mainly unknown, but they arise from interplay between several genetic and environmental factors. The aim of this thesis was to investigate whether polymorphisms in putative candidate genes for HT increase the susceptibility to HT and/or T2DM. READ MORE
