  1. 1. Impaired Glucose Tolerance in Childhood Obesity : Contribution of Glucagon, GLP-1 and Inflammation

    Author : Hannes Manell; Peter Bergsten; Anders Forslund; Jens Juul Holst; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Childhood obesity; impaired glucose tolerance; type 2 diabetes; glucagon; glucagon-like peptide-1; dipeptidyl peptidase-4; inflammation; free fatty acids; insulin; visceral adiposity; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : In the wake of increased obesity prevalence, impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in childhood and adolescence is increasingly common. Given the negative impacts these conditions have on health over time, understanding the pathophysiology in those affected early in life is important. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of Impaired Glucose Tolerance - Insulin Sensitivity, Islet Function and Metabolic Risk Factors

    Author : Hillevi Larsson; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; muscle fiber type; androgen activity; proinsulin; glucagon; insulin secretion; insulin sensitivity; Impaired glucose tolerance; type 2 diabetes; sekretion; diabetologi; Endokrinologi; diabetology; secreting systems;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a three-year prospective study on metabolic characteristics of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and the regulation of insulin sensitivity versus islet function in relation to changes in glucose tolerance. 108 non-diabetic women aged 57-58 years were randomly selected from a population of women born in 1935 with a high prevalence of IGT.

  3. 3. Impaired glucose tolerance in ischemic heart disease

    Author : Loghman Henareh; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Diabetes mellitus; myocardial infarction; atherosclerosis; endothelial dysfunction; inflammation; microalbumiuria; left ventricular hypertrophy; tissue Doppler.;

    Abstract : Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) and impaired glucose tolerance test (IGT) are well known risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Individuals with IGT, a prediabetic state, are asymptomatic during many years and they often remain undiagnosed until they have developed overt diabetes or cardiovascular complications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Trends in obesity and type 2 diabetes : ethnic aspects and links to adipokines

    Author : Mikael Lilja; Stefan Söderberg; Olov Rolandsson; Mats Eliasson; Kurt Svärdsudd; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Type 2 diabetes; leptin; adiponectin; obesity; abdominal obesity; epidemiology; ethnicity; fasting glucose; post-load glucose; Family Medicine; allmänmedicin;

    Abstract : Objective The prevalence of obesity and related diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is increasing worldwide, and the Asian Indian population seems to be particularly susceptible to developing T2DM, even at a low body mass index (BMI). In Sweden, the age-adjusted prevalence of diabetes has not increased despite increasing self-reported obesity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Age and gender differences in risk factor burden, myocardial dysfunction and cardiovascular events in relation to glucose metabolism

    Author : Margrét Leosdottir; Internmedicin - epidemiologi; []
    Keywords : Age; cardiovascular disease; diabetes; echocardiography; gender; glucose; left ventricular function; Nt-proBNP; self-rated health;

    Abstract : The risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and heart failure (HF) among individuals with diabetes is at least two times greater than in non-diabetic subjects. However, the excess risk of CVD in diabetic subjects seems to decrease with age. READ MORE
