  1. 1. Candidate Genes for Late Diabetic Complications

    University dissertation from Endocrinology

    Author : Eero Lindholm; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TNF; sekretion; LTA; Endocrinology; nephropathy; diabetes mellitus; retinopathy; neuropathy; genetic; UCP; diabetologi; AGER; MHc2TA; HLA-DQB1; Endokrinologi; secreting systems; diabetology;

    Abstract : Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both. The new WHO criteria for classification of diabetes takes into account also clinical stages dividing the diabetic patients into noninsulin requiring (NIR), insulin requiring for control (IRC) and insulin requiring for survival (IRS) subgroups.

    Abstract : High blood pressure (BP) is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Both genetic and environmental factors are implicated in BP homeostatsis and hypertension development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic factors in primary hypertension- with emphasis on renal sodium reabsorption

    University dissertation from Department of Endocrinology, Wallenberg laboratory, Malmö University Hospital

    Author : Olle Melander; [2000]

    Abstract : Genetic factors are of importance for the development of primary hypertension (HT). Intrauterine growth retardation, salt sensitivity and insulin resistance are all characteristic features of individuals prone to develop HT. READ MORE

  4. 4. On cardiovascular responses to hypovolemic circulatory stress. An experimental study in man

    University dissertation from Department of Endocrinology, Wallenberg laboratory, Malmö University Hospital

    Author : Henrik Olsen; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetology; secreting systems; Endocrinology; vein.; type 1 diabetes; skeletal muscle; LBNP; compliance; CFC; Ageing; baroreceptor; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Aged subjects have a decreased tolerance to hypovolemia, which could contribute to their increased cardiovascular morbidity. One possible etiological factor might be an age-related reduction in the efficiency of the baroreceptor reflex axis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human glycogen synthase genes. Role in insulin resistance and hypoglycaemia

    University dissertation from Department of Endocrinology, Wallenberg laboratory, Malmö University Hospital

    Author : Marju Orho-Melander; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mutation; GYS2; GYS1; glycogen synthase; glycogen; insulin resistance; hypoglycaemia; liver glycogen synthase deficiency; glycogen storage disease type 0; Type 2 diabetes; metabolic syndrome; expression; chromosome 19; 19q13.3; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : Effective insulin-stimulated storage of excess glucose after a meal, and its rapid mobilisation in the fasting state provide basis of glucose homeostasis. Glycogen is the macromolecular storage form of glucose and glycogen synthase (GS) is the rate-limiting enzyme in glycogen synthesis. Skeletal muscle and liver are the major depots of glycogen.
