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

    University dissertation from Community Medicine

    Author : Kristina Bengtsson Boström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : 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

  2. 2. Heritability of blood pressure: monogenes and polygenes

    University dissertation from Diabetes and Endocrinology

    Author : Cristiano Fava; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Biomedicinska vetenskaper; Biomedical sciences; kidney; Adducin-1; CLC-kb; Gitelman syndrome; association; heritabilty; genetics; hypertension; Blood pressure; blood pressure variability; Medicin människa och djur ; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    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. Exploring Positional and Functional Candidate Genes for Type 2 Diabetes

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

    Author : Johan Holmkvist; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : 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.

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

    University dissertation from ÅsaLinda Lethagen Wallenberg Laboratory ing 46, Malmö University Hospital, 20502 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : ÅsaLinda Lethagen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : 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

  5. 5. Candidate Genes for Late Diabetic Complications

    University dissertation from Endocrinology

    Author : Eero Lindholm; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]

    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.
