  • Age of Appearance of Diabetes Autoantibodies in Type 1a Diabetics and
           Their Siblings in Côte D'ivoire

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Oct 2018
      Source:Advances in Diabetes and Metabolism  Volume  6  Number  2  Trébissou Aïssé Florence Judith   Sanogo Mamadou   Sibailly Pascal   Ankotché Amos   Lokrou Adrian   Hatem Masmoudi   Yapo Adou Francis   and Djaman Allico Joseph   Diabetes autoantibodies, which are important markers of classification and prevention of type 1 diabetes, are absent in the diabetes care in Côte d'Ivoire. The study aim was to determine the age at which these autoantibodies were at their highest levels in type 1A diabetic patients (T1D) and their siblings in Côte d’Ivoire. The study population is composed of 28 T1D patients and 59 siblings, aged from 5 to 21 years. T1D were followed up in the U.H.C Endocrinology departments of Yopougon and Treichville, in the District of Abidjan. Anti-GAD and anti-IA2 autoantibodies were researched by ELISA and anti-ICA autoantibodies by indirect immunofluorescence on monkey pancreas. The peaks of anti-GAD and anti-IA2 autoantibodies were observed respectively at 9 years old (604.30±521.70 IU/ml) and 10 years old (125.10±90.10 IU/ml) in T1D. In siblings, the peaks of anti-GAD and anti-IA2 autoantibodies were observed respectively at 13 years old (137 IU/ml) and 10 years old (53±40 IU/ml). The peak of diabetes autoantibodies in T1D and their siblings in Côte d'Ivoire is at a very young age noted. This could explain the high mortality rate among T1D youth in Côte d'Ivoire.

  • Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms: An Approach to Personalized Medicine for
           African Americans with and without Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Oct 2018
      Source:Advances in Diabetes and Metabolism  Volume  6  Number  2  Lisa R Maness   Jasmine L Barber   and Jude Okoyeh   Over 27 million people in the U.S. have type 2 diabetes mellitus, with a disproportionate number being African American. There is abundant evidence of environmental and genetic influence, with several single nucleotide polymorphisms reaching genome-wide significance. The work was a pilot study to begin to determine whether type 2 diabetes mellitus can be improved in society through personalized medicine, by approaching individual patients from the standpoint of their unique at-risk or protective genes in addition to lifestyle and family history. Twenty-seven patients volunteered to answer questions on family history of type 2 diabetes mellitus and had their body mass index, glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, and insulin levels determined. They also had DNA extracted with single nucleotide polymorphisms determined by Affymetrix precision medicine research array. Fourteen single nucleotide polymorphisms relating to T2DM were found in the microarray used in this study. Number of at-risk single nucleotide polymorphisms varied for participants and 3 had the protective single nucleotide polymorphisms. While all participants had at-risk single nucleotide polymorphisms, some individuals with a body mass index in the obese range or with family history of the disease were found to have a greater number of single nucleotide polymorphisms that place them at risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus. This study shows how combined knowledge of patient single nucleotide polymorphisms, family history, and lab parameters may provide information for developing a personalized medicine plan.

  • The Relation between Diabetes Type 1 and 2 Type and Microalbuminuria in
           Omdurman Teaching Hospital and Altyser Health Center by Using Urine Strip
           for Microalbuminuria in Sudanese Patients

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Dec 2018
      Source:Advances in Diabetes and Metabolism  Volume  6  Number  3  Nazik Ibrahim Abdel Rahman   The present work is Prospective cross sectional study. The main objective is to determine the presence of microalbuminuria in the patients urine in relation to the duration and the age and gender by using urine strip for microalbuminuria. The complications of diabetes mellitus especially end stage renal failure is a major health problem, This study is about the screening diabetic patients for microalbuminuria by simple urine strip for microalbuminuria. During period from Jan. to Aug. 2008, 100 diabetic patients were randomly selected from diabetic clinics of Omdurman Teaching Hospital and Altyser Health Center by using simple direct standardized questionnaire for 100 diabetic patients type I & II. And the urine samples were examined for microalbuminuria Results: out of 100 diabetic patients, 66% were females and 34% were males, type I constitutes about 5 % and type II about 95%, the ages range from (9-90) years. Microalbuminuria detected in about 41% of the patients and 59% had negative results, most of the patients with positive results were in age group (45 -54). The clinical practice in diabetic clinics in Sudan is not following the international guidelines regarding the screening of diabetic nephropathy, so a significant number of the diabetic patients with diabetic nephropathy are missed.

  • The Association of Irisin with the Progression of Diabetes Mellitus Irisin
           and Diabetes Progression

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Aug 2018
      Source:Advances in Diabetes and Metabolism  Volume  6  Number  1  Nihal Yücel   Aycan Bölük   Özlem Madenci   Zeynep Yildiz   Mehmet Sargın   and Asuman Orçun   Introduction: There is an ongoing debate over the involvement of irisin in the glucose metabolism. In this study, we aimed to see the association of irisin with the markers of glucose intolerance. Materials and Methods: We analyzed the relation of irisin with metabolic markers such as Homeostatic Model Assessment-Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR), insulin, and glucose in 152 subjects, subdivided into normal, impaired glucose tolerance and diabetic subgroups. Results: We found that the irisin levels of individuals with different stages of glucose intolerance did not show any significant difference. There was not any correlation between irisin levels with HOMA-IR. However, we observed a positive and significant correlation between circulating irisin concentrations and 120-minute glucose, 120-minute insulin, and HbA1c levels. Conclusion: The conclusive results of this study are that irisin could be somehow associated with insulin resistance but do not show a significant difference with neither diabetes nor different stages of insulin resistance.
