  • Pericardial fat in type 2 diabetes: not just a biomarker, but a promising
           treatment target'

  • First-trimester fasting glycemia as a predictor of gestational diabetes
           (GDM) and adverse pregnancy outcomes
    • Abstract: Aims Studies to prevent gestational diabetes (GDM) have shown the best results when lifestyle measures have been applied early in pregnancy. We aimed to investigate whether first-trimester fasting plasma glucose (FPG) could predict GDM risk and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Methods A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from singleton pregnancies who were attended at our hospital between 2008 and 2018 (n = 27,198) was performed. We included patients with a recorded first-trimester FPG and complete pregnancy data (n = 6845). Patients under 18, with pregestational diabetes or reproductive techniques, were excluded. First-trimester FPG was evaluated as a continuous variable and divided into quartiles. GDM was diagnosed by NDDG criteria. The relationship between first- and second-trimester glucose > 92 mg/dL was also investigated. The relationship between FPG and pregnancy outcomes was assessed in 6150 patients who did not have GDM. Results Maternal age was 34.2 ± 3.9 years, BMI 23.1 ± 3.7 kg/m2 and mean FPG 83.0 ± 7.3 mg/dL. Glucose quartiles were: ≤ 78, 79–83, 84–87 and ≥ 88 mg/dL. First-trimester FPG predicted the risk of GDM (7%, 8%, 10.2% and 16% in each quartile, p < 0.001) and the risk of second-trimester glucose > 92 mg/dL (2.6%, 3.8%, 6.3% and 11.4% in each quartile, p < 0.001). FPG was significantly associated with LGA (8.2%, 9.3%, 10% and 11.7% in each quartile, p = 0.011) but not with other obstetrical outcomes. In a multivariate analysis including age, BMI, tobacco use, number of pregnancies and weight gained during pregnancy, first-trimester FPG was an independent predictor of LGA. Conclusions First-trimester FPG is an early marker of GDM and LGA.

  • Risk of cancer in patients treated with dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors:
           an extensive meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
    • Abstract: Aims Observational studies and meta-analyses of randomized trials on dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP4i) reported discordant results on the risk of malignancies with this class of drugs. Aim of the present meta-analysis is the assessment of the effect of DPP4i treatment on the incidence of different types of cancer, collecting all available evidence from randomized controlled trials. Methods An extensive MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane database search for sitagliptin or vildagliptin or omarigliptin or saxagliptin or alogliptin or trelagliptin or anagliptin or linagliptin or gemigliptin or evogliptin or teneligliptin was performed up to September 30th, 2019. All trials performed on type 2 diabetes, with duration ≥ 24 weeks, and comparing of DPP4i with placebo or active drugs were collected. The study has been registered on PROSPERO (#153344). Mantel–Haenszel odds ratio (MH-OR) with 95% confidence interval (95% CI) was calculated for all outcomes. Results A total of 157 eligible trials were identified. DPP-4i were not associated with an increased risk of overall cancer (MH-OR 0.93 [0.86, 1.00]; p = 0.07), with no significant differences across individual molecules of the class. When compared with placebo/none, a lower risk of cancer with DPP-4i was observed in placebo-controlled trials (MH-OR 0.90 [0.82, 0.99], p = 0.030), whereas no significant differences have been detected with any other comparators. DPP-4i was associated with a significant reduction in colorectal cancer (MH-OR 0.70 [0.53, 0.94], p = 0.020). Conclusions Available data do not support the hypothesis of an association of DPP4i treatment with malignancies, with a possible beneficial effect for colon-rectal cancer.

    • Abstract: Aim The aim of this study was to evaluate the 10-day initiation protocol for MiniMed 670G hybrid closed-loop (HCL) system in individuals with type 1 diabetes on multiple daily injection (MDI) in achieving desirable glycemic control. Methods An open-label single-arm, single-center, clinical investigation in children aged 7–18 years on MDI following a structured protocol: 2 days, HCL system assessment; 5 days, HCL system training (2-h sessions on 5 consecutive days with groups of 3–5 participants and families); 3 days, Manual Mode use of HCL system; 84 days, Auto Mode use of the HCL system, cumulating in 10 days from MDI to Auto Mode activation. Results A total of 30 children (age 10.24 ± 2.6 years) were enrolled in the study, and all completed the planned 84 days on Auto Mode. The participants used the sensor for a median of 92% of the time and spent a median of 89% in Auto Mode. The mean HbA1c decreased from 8.2 ± 1.4% (66 ± 15.3 mmol/mol) at baseline to 6.7 ± 0.5% (50 ± 5.5 mmol/mol) at the end of the study (p = 0.017). Time in range (70–180 mg/dL) increased from 46.9 ± 18.5% at baseline to 75.6 ± 6.9% in Auto Mode (p < 0.001). This was achieved while spending 2.8% of the time below 70 mg/dL and without any severe hypoglycemia or DKA. Conclusion Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes on MDI therapy can successfully initiate the HCL system, using a concise structured 10-day protocol.

  • Evaluating the correlation of the impairment between skeletal muscle and
           heart using MRI in a spontaneous type 2 diabetes mellitus rhesus monkey
           model
    • Abstract: Aims To investigate the correlation of impairment in skeletal muscle and heart in spontaneous type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) rhesus monkeys using magnetic resonance image (MRI). Methods Fifteen T2DM monkeys and fourteen healthy control (HC) monkeys were included. The microcirculation of skeletal muscle [skeletal muscle blood flow (SMBF), skeletal muscle oxygen extraction fraction (SMOEF)] and the function and strain of heart were evaluated by MRI. Three regions of interests were chosen on the soleus muscle (SOL), gastrocnemius muscle (GAS) and tibialis anterior muscle (TA) for image analysis. Results Eight T2DM monkeys and eight HC monkeys were obtained the full data. The SMBF reserves and SMOEF reserves were found significantly decreased in T2DM during inflation in SOL, GAS and TA muscles (all p < 0.05), and the SMBF reserves decreased during hyperemia in GAS and TA muscles (all p < 0.05). In these monkeys, the global peak longitudinal strain (longitudinal PS), peak systolic longitudinal strain rate (longitudinal PSSR) and peak diastolic longitudinal strain rate (longitudinal PDSR) were seen significantly different in T2DM compared to HC monkeys (all p < 0.05). The longitudinal PSSR was found negatively correlated with SMBF reserves in SOL, GAS and TA during inflation in all monkeys. Conclusions The impaired microcirculation of skeletal muscle and the myocardial deformation were found in T2DM monkeys with normal ejection fraction. And a negative correlation was existed in the longitudinal PSSR and the SMBF reserves.

  • Estimating the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus based on the 2013 WHO
           criteria: a prediction model based on clinical and biochemical variables
           in early pregnancy
    • Abstract: Aims We aimed to develop a prediction model based on clinical and biochemical variables for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) based on the 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) criteria. Methods A total of 1843 women from a Belgian multi-centric prospective cohort study underwent universal screening for GDM. Using multivariable logistic regression analysis, a model to predict GDM was developed based on variables from early pregnancy. The performance of the model was assessed by receiver-operating characteristic (AUC) analysis. To account for over-optimism, an eightfold cross-validation was performed. The accuracy was compared with two validated models (van Leeuwen and Teede). Results A history with a first degree relative with diabetes, a history of smoking before pregnancy, a history of GDM, Asian origin, age, height and BMI were independent predictors for GDM with an AUC of 0.72 [95% confidence interval (CI) 0.69–0.76)]; after cross-validation, the AUC was 0.68 (95% CI 0.64–0.72). Adding biochemical variables, a history of a first degree relative with diabetes, a history of GDM, non-Caucasian origin, age, height, weight, fasting plasma glucose, triglycerides and HbA1c were independent predictors for GDM, with an AUC of the model of 0.76 (95% CI 0.72–0.79); after cross-validation, the AUC was 0.72 (95% CI 0.66–0.78), compared to an AUC of 0.67 (95% CI 0.63–0.71) using the van Leeuwen model and an AUC of 0.66 (95% CI 0.62–0.70) using the Teede model. Conclusions A model based on easy to use variables in early pregnancy has a moderate accuracy to predict GDM based on the 2013 WHO criteria.

  • A comparison of diabetes self-care behavior in people with type 2 diabetes
           with and without insomnia symptoms
    • Abstract: Aims Individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are advised to undertake diabetes self-care behavior (DSCB) in order to avoid complications of T2DM. However, comorbidities, such as insomnia symptoms which are commonly reported in people with T2DM, may limit the ability to engage in DSCB. Insomnia and the common sequelae accompanying insomnia such as pain, depression, and anxiety may negatively influence the performance of DSCB. Therefore, this study aimed to compare the DSCB of people with T2DM with and without insomnia symptoms. Methods Sixty participants with T2DM were divided into two groups based on the presence of insomnia symptoms: T2DM-only group and T2DM+ insomnia group. Insomnia symptoms were identified using the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI). DSCB was assessed using the Diabetic Care Profile (DCP). A standardized composite score was established to account for all of the DCP domains. Chi-square and independent sample t tests were used to assess between-group differences in categorical and continuous variables, respectively. Stepwise linear regression analysis used the ISI score to predict standardized DCP composite score, while controlling for covariates. Results Significant between-group differences were found in age, symptoms of pain, depression, and anxiety. The total DCP composite score was significantly lower in the T2DM+ insomnia group compared to the T2DM-only group (− 0.30 ± 0.46 vs. 0.36 ± 0.48, respectively, p < 0.001) with large effect size (g = 1.40). Stepwise linear regression results showed that a 1-point increase in ISI score significantly predicted a .03-point decrease in standardized DCP composite score, after controlling for age, symptoms of pain, depression, and anxiety (β = − 0.03, p = 0.04). Conclusions The data suggest that people with T2DM and insomnia symptoms had worse scores on the majority of the DSCB domains and a worse DCP composite score compared to people with T2DM only. The data suggest a negative association between insomnia severity and DSCB among people with T2DM. Further research using a larger sample size and more rigorous research design is required to examine the causal relationship between insomnia symptoms and DSCB.

  • Diabetes and diabetic retinopathy in patients undergoing cataract surgery:
           a prevalence study—DiCat study report #2
    • Abstract: Purpose To report on the prevalence of diabetes, diabetic macula oedema (DME) and retinopathy and their respective grading in a large cohort of patients undergoing cataract surgery. Methods Data on previous diagnosis of diabetes, fasting glucose, glycated haemoglobin, presence and type of retinopathy and other maculopathy of 3657 patients over 55 years of age undergoing cataract surgery in 13 centres scattered throughout Italy were analysed. Results A total of 20.4% of patients were known diabetics and 27.9% of diabetics showed signs of retinopathy. Haemoglobin A1C was higher than 48 mmol/L (6.5%) in 32% of diabetics and 2.4% non-diabetics. Fasting blood glucose level was higher than 120 mg/dL in 4.3% non-diabetics and 50% diabetics. Duration of diabetes did not significantly correlate with either fasting glucose or glycated haemoglobin, while higher grades of diabetic retinopathy were significantly more prevalent as duration of disease increased. DME was present in almost 40% of diabetics and 22% of patients showed non-diabetic maculopathy. Discussion Diabetic retinopathy and DME worsen after cataract extraction thus complicating long-term prognosis and requiring expensive injective therapy. Since unknown diabetics represent 2–4% of the many million cataract candidates and even known diabetics show poor metabolic control and high rates of DME, preoperative medical testing and accurate retinopathy screening may prove both ethically necessary and cost-effective.

  • Clinical utility of noninvasive scores in assessing advanced hepatic
           fibrosis in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a study in
           biopsy-proven non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
    • Abstract: Background/aim Simple noninvasive fibrosis scores based on routine blood tests have been increasingly investigated as screening tools in different clinical settings. Here, we sought to examine whether the Fibrosis-4 Index (FIB-4) and the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) fibrosis score (NFS) could perform differently in diabetic versus non-diabetic patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD. Methods We examined 349 patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD (166 with type 2 diabetes and 183 without). Patients with FIB-4 scores < 1.3 and  > 2.67 or NFS scores < − 1.455 and  > 0.676 were considered at low and high risk of advanced fibrosis, respectively. Results A FIB-4 cutoff value of 1.3—which denotes a low risk of advanced fibrosis—had a specificity of 67% in patients with diabetes and 69% in those without. Conversely, a FIB-4 cutoff value of 2.67—which denotes a high risk of advanced fibrosis—had a sensitivity of 22% in patients with diabetes and 0% in those without. NFS performed similar to FIB-4. Conclusion Both FIB-4 and NFS scores have an acceptable clinical utility in the exclusion of advanced fibrosis in patients with NAFLD, regardless of the presence of type 2 diabetes. However, their usefulness in identifying advanced fibrosis is limited—especially in the absence of diabetes.

  • Myopathy with DPP-4 inhibitors and statins in the real world:
           investigating the likelihood of drug–drug interactions through the FDA
           adverse event reporting system
    • Abstract: Aims To investigate the occurrence of myopathy with oral glucose-lowering drugs (OGLDs) and statins, with a focus on dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP4-is). Methods The FDA adverse event reporting system (FAERS) was queried (2004–2016) to compare the proportion of adverse events with OGLDs, alone and in combination with statins, using the reporting odds ratio (ROR) with relevant 95% confidence interval (95%Cl), adjusted for sex, age and concomitant presence of other OGLDs/lipid-lowering drugs. Drug–drug interaction is claimed whenever the frequency of an event is enhanced by combination treatment. Consistency/robustness of findings was tested by applying additive/multiplicative models and accounting for competition bias (i.e., adverse events previously known to be associated with OGLDs were removed). Results Over a 13-year period, we retrieved 142,888 cases of myopathy. The use of DPP4-is alone was not associated with higher reporting of myopathy (no. of cases = 4898; adjusted ROR = 1.00; 95%CI = 0.96–1.04), with the notable exclusion of vildagliptin (262; 1.64; 1.42–1.88). No increased occurrence emerged when used in combination with statins, with consistent findings from additive/multiplicative models for all DPP4-is. Likewise, no increased reporting was found for other OGLDs (28,964; 0.64; 0.62–0.67); data on the interaction with statins were consistent/robust across analyses only for sulfonylureas (the interaction is likely and biologically plausible) and sodium glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors. Conclusions Real-world FAERS data do not raise concern for muscular toxicity with DPP4-is in combination with statins, making a drug interaction very unlikely.

  • Connexin43 hemichannel block protects against retinal pigment epithelial
           cell barrier breakdown
    • Abstract: Aims The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) is an important component of the outer blood–retinal barrier (BRB) that separates the choroid from the rest of the retina. Loss of RPE-mediated BRB integrity is a key feature of diabetic macular oedema (DME), a chronic pathology resulting from diabetic retinopathy (DR). Recent studies have shown that connexin43 hemichannel opening mediates key inflammatory pathways in DR, though its effect on the barrier properties of RPE cells remains unknown. Therefore, RPE breakdown was induced by exposing a monolayer of ARPE-19 cells to high glucose (HG) and 10 ng/mL each of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1β and TNF-α. The role of connexin43 hemichannels was assessed using a connexin43 hemichannel blocker, Peptide5. Methods Transepithelial resistance (TEER) and FITC-dextran dye leak across the ARPE-19 monolayer were used to measure RPE layer permeability. Immunohistochemistry was used to assess changes in connexin43, collagen IV and ZO-1 expression. ATP and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release were measured using commercially available kits. Results Connexin43 hemichannel block with Peptide5 prevented TEER reduction and FITC-dextran dye leak induced by a combination of HG and inflammatory cytokines. Peptide5 also blocked LDH and ATP release induced by the addition of HG and inflammatory cytokines. ZO-1 and connexin43 disruption and internalisation as well as upregulated secretion of collagen IV following HG and inflammatory cytokine exposure were also prevented. The addition of exogenous ATP into the culture medium was able to reverse Peptide5 protection against LDH release and change in connexin43 localisation, indicating that the initiating pathway in RPE disruption is connexin43 hemichannel-mediated ATP release. Conclusion These findings support the idea that connexin43 hemichannels may mediate RPE disruption (and its role within the BRB) that occurs in DME through an ATP release/inflammasome pathway activation dependent manner. Connexin43 hemichannels are therefore a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of DME.
