  • Clinical and socio-demographic determinants of inadequate self-care in
           adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus: the leading role of self-care
    • Authors: Rosario Caruso; Paola Rebora; Federica Dellafiore; Diletta Fabrizi; Barbara Riegel; Davide Ausili; Stefania Di Mauro
      Pages: 151 - 161
      Abstract: Aims To describe self-care maintenance, monitoring, and management behaviors in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1DM), and to identify clinical and socio-demographic determinants of inadequate self-care. Methods A cross-sectional study was conducted in two diabetes outpatient clinics in Italy. Clinical and socio-demographic characteristics were collected from the medical records of 181 consecutively enrolled T1DM patients. The Self-Care of Diabetes Inventory was used to measure self-care maintenance, self-care monitoring, self-care management and self-care confidence. A standardized 0–100 score was used for each self-care dimension. A score < 70 was considered inadequate self-care. Three multiple logistic regression models were run to find determinants of inadequate self-care maintenance, monitoring, and management. Results The majority of patients had adequate self-care maintenance (74%; n = 134), self-care monitoring (68.5%; n = 124) and self-care confidence (87.3%; n = 158), while self-care management was adequate for only a minority (34.8%; n = 63). The odds of inadequate self-care maintenance increased by 4.5 times when self-care confidence was inadequate (OR adjusted 4.589; 95% CI 1.611–13.071; p = 0.004). The odds of inadequate self-care monitoring increased four times when patients had inadequate self-care confidence (OR adjusted 4.116; 95% CI 1.457–11.628; p = 0.008). Inadequate self-care confidence increased the odds of performing inadequate self-care management more than five times (OR adjusted 5.313; 95% CI 1.143–24.686; p = 0.033). Conclusions Self-care management is commonly inadequate in adults with T1DM. Self-care confidence is the most important determinant of self-care behaviors in this population. Educational interventions are recommended to improve self-care confidence in adults with T1DM.

  • Regulation of MMP 2 and MMP 9 expressions modulated by AP-1 (c-jun) in
           wound healing: improving role of Lucilia sericata in diabetic rats
    • Authors: Fatma Kübra Tombulturk; Tugba Soydas; Elif Yaprak Sarac; Matem Tuncdemir; Ender Coskunpinar; Erdal Polat; Serhat Sirekbasan; Gonul Kanigur-Sultuybek
      Pages: 177 - 186
      Abstract: Aims Lucilia sericata larvae have been successfully used on healing of wounds in the diabetics. However, the involvement of the extraction/secretion (ES) products of larvae in the treatment of diabetic wounds is still unknown. Activator protein-1 (AP-1) transcription, composed of c-jun and c-Fos proteins, has been shown to be the principal regulator of multiple MMP transcriptions under a variety of conditions, also in diabetic wounds. Specifically, MMP-2 and MMP-9’s transcriptions are known to be modulated by AP-1. c-jun has been demonstrated to be a repressor of p53 in immortalized fibroblasts. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of L. sericata ES on the expression of AP-1 (c-jun), p53, MMP-2, and MMP-9 in wound biopsies dissected from streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. Methods The expression levels of MMP-2, MMP-9, c-jun and p53 in dermal tissues were determined at days 0, 3, 7 and 14 after wounding, using immunohistochemical analysis and quantitative real-time PCR. Results The treatment with ES significantly decreased through inflammation-based induction of MMP-2 and MMP-9 expression levels in the wounds of diabetic groups, compared to control groups at the third day of wound healing. At the 14th day, there were dramatic decreases in expression of c-jun, MMP-9, and p53 in ES-treated groups, compared to the diabetic group (P < 0.001, P < 0.05 and P < 0.01, respectively). Conclusion ES products of L. sericata may enhance the process of wound healing in phases of inflammation, proliferation, and re-epithelization, essentially via regulating c-jun expression and modulating MMP-2 and MMP-9 expressions.

      Abstract: Aims Diabetes prevention interventions have been less successful in Asian Indians compared to other populations, which may be due in part to dietary differences. The objective of this study was to determine the impact of a diabetes prevention intervention on diet and risk of diabetes in Asian Indians at high risk. Methods Data were included from the Diabetes Community Lifestyle Improvement Program (D-CLIP), a randomized control trial to prevent diabetes in overweight/obese Asian Indian adults (20–65 years) with prediabetes. Respondents received standard treatment (control; n = 283) or a 6-month intervention (n = 295) that included education and support to reduce intakes of fat and total calories (kilocalories; kcal). Diet was ascertained using a food frequency questionnaire, and incident diabetes was determined from annual 2-h plasma glucose post-oral glucose tolerance test or biannual fasting plasma glucose. Results There were 485 (control 240; intervention 245) respondents with complete diet data at baseline. At 6 months, the intervention was associated with decreased intake of total energy (− 185.6 kcal/day; 95% CI − 353.6, − 17.5 kcal/day) and refined cereals (− 7.2 g/1000 kcal; 95% CI − 12.7, − 1.7 g/1000 kcal), and increased intakes of fruits and vegetables (33.4 g/1000 kcal; 95% CI 16.0, 50.8 g/1000 kcal). The intervention group was half (HR 0.49; 95% CI 0.25, 0.94) as likely to develop diabetes at 1 year, and the hazard was significantly attenuated (12.2%; P = 0.015) with adjustment for fruits and vegetable intake. Conclusion The D-CLIP decreased the total energy intake and increased the intakes of fruits and vegetables, and reduced the 1-year incidence of diabetes by half. Trial registration # NCT01283308

  • A randomized controlled trial comparing a telemedicine therapeutic
           intervention with routine care in adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus
           treated by insulin pumps
    • Abstract: Aim To examine the effectiveness and safety over a 12-month period of a telemedicine intervention in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D) treated with insulin pumps. Methods 74 T1D patients on insulin pumps for at least 1 year (mean 19.5 [11.5] years) and HbA1c ≥ 6.5% (≥ 48 mmol/mol) were randomized to the telemedicine (n = 37) or the standard care group (n = 37). The intervention group was instructed to download data from insulin pumps and glucometers monthly. They received immediate phone feedback and recommendations for insulin dose adjustment; and face-to-face visits once in 6 months, compared to once every 3 months for the standard care group. Satisfaction with treatment, quality of life and frequency of hypoglycemic events was evaluated. Results The mean changes in HbA1c adjusted to baseline were − 0.08% (0.25 mmol/mol) vs. − 0.01% (0.03 mmol/mol), in the intervention and control groups, respectively (p = 0.18) at 12 months, without an increased frequency of hypoglycemia. Patients in the intervention group felt satisfied and interested in continuing with the treatment (p = 0.04). The quality of life scores were similar in both groups. Direct total costs were 24% less in the intervention group, and indirect total costs decreased by 22% compared to the year preceding the study. Conclusions Internet-based insulin dose adjustment is as effective and safe as routine care in adults with type 1 diabetes treated by insulin pumps. For suitable patients, some of the time-consuming routine visits may be replaced by user-friendly digital medicine. Clinical trial registration Clinical Identifier NCT01887431.

  • Agonistic autoantibodies against B2-adrenergic receptors correlating with
           macrovascular disease in longstanding diabetes type 2
    • Authors: Christoph Werner; Nicolle Müller; Ulrich Alfons Müller
      Abstract: Aims Agonistic autoantibodies directed against adrenergic, endothelin, and angiotensin receptors are known as pathogenic factors in disease-causing vascular impairments such as Buergers’ disease, dilatative cardiomyopathy, dementia, and preeclampsia. Diabetes mellitus also causes micro- and macrovascular damages, but pathogenesis is still not fully understood. Following indications for a pathogenic role of the mentioned antibodies from our preliminary investigations, we investigated the prevalence in a bigger cohort of patients with longstanding diabetes with or without diabetic complications. Methods We included 200 patients in four groups (grouping due to duration of diabetes and presence of complications) from our university polyclinic with longstanding diabetes mellitus type 2 and evaluated the prevalence of the agonistic autoantibodies using ELISA technique. Results Antibodies directed against the alpha1-(39%), the first extracellular loop of the beta2-(34,5%), and the first extracellular loop of the beta1-adrenergic receptor (29,0%) were the most often detectable. With progression of diabetes and its complications, we found a decrease in the prevalence of the antibodies. Regression analyses revealed a positive association of antibodies against the first loop of the beta2-receptor and the presence of macrovascular complications. Conclusions This investigation found mid frequent prevalence of agonistic autoantibodies in patients with longstanding diabetes mellitus type 2. The association between an antibody against one epitope and the presence of macrovascular complications may indicates a pathogenic linkage. This finding is inconsistent with our preliminary data and needs further evaluation, maybe by follow-up.

      Abstract: Aims Islet transplantation is an effective therapeutic option for type 1 diabetes. Although maintenance immunosuppression therapy is required to prevent allogeneic rejection and recurrence of autoimmunity, long-term allograft survival has not yet been achieved partly because of its adverse effects. The induction of donor-specific immunotolerance is a promising approach for long-term allograft survival without maintenance immunosuppression therapy. We previously reported that combination therapy using a liposomal ligand for invariant natural killer T cells, RGI-2001, and anti-CD154 antibody established mixed hematopoietic chimerism for the induction of donor-specific immunotolerance. This study investigated whether the protocol could promote islet allograft acceptance in experimental diabetes. Methods Streptozotocin-induced diabetic BALB/c mice were transplanted with bone marrow cells from C57BL/6 donors and received combination therapy of RGI-2001 and anti-CD154 antibody after 3-Gy total body irradiation. 3 Weeks after bone marrow transplantation, islets isolated from C57BL/6 donors were transplanted under the kidney capsule. Results Mixed chimerism was established in diabetic mice receiving the tolerance induction protocol. After islet transplantation, blood glucose levels improved and normoglycemia persisted for over 100 days. Hyperglycemia recurred after islet grafts were removed. Histopathological examinations showed insulin-positive staining and absence of cellular infiltration in the islet grafts. T cells of recipients showed donor-specific hyporesponsiveness, and anti-donor antibodies were not detected. Conclusions The tolerance induction protocol with combination therapy of RGI-2001 and anti-CD154 antibody promoted islet allograft acceptance in a mouse diabetic model. This protocol may be clinically applied to islet transplantation for type 1 diabetes mellitus.

  • Nutritional markers in patients with diabetes and pancreatic exocrine
    • Authors: Laure Alexandre-Heymann; Amal Y. Lemoine; Samir Nakib; Nathalie Kapel; Séverine Ledoux; Etienne Larger
      Abstract: Aims Altered pancreatic exocrine function can be observed in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. In the present study, we evaluated the potential nutritional consequences of this dysfunction. Methods Serum concentrations of nutritional markers, including albumin, cholesterol, triacylglycerol, vitamins A, D, and E, were assessed in a cohort of 468 patients (137 with type 1 diabetes and 331 with type 2 diabetes), after exclusion of the patients with a CRP > 10 mg/l. These patients were compared with 47 patients with diseases of the exocrine pancreas and diabetes (type 3c diabetes or pancreatogenic diabetes). Fecal elastase-1 and chymotrypsin concentrations were measured and patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes were divided into three groups according to whether zero (group NN), one (group LN), or both (group LL) concentrations were decreased. Results Several markers differed significantly between the groups of patients, including BMI, albumin, phosphorus, and fat-soluble vitamins. Patients with pancreatogenic diabetes had markedly more profound alterations than patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and altered exocrine function. However, patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and decreased concentrations of both elastase-1 and chymotrypsin had lower albumin, phosphorus, and vitamin A than patients with normal pancreatic exocrine function. Conclusions Modest nutritional alterations were found in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and altered exocrine function. Patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and altered exocrine function may thus deserve to be screened for nutritional deficiencies.

  • Long-term effect of pioglitazone vs glimepiride on lipoprotein oxidation
           in patients with type 2 diabetes: a prospective randomized study
    • Authors: Giovanni Sartore; Nino Cristiano Chilelli; Roberta Seraglia; Eugenio Ragazzi; Raffaella Marin; Marco Roverso; Chiara Cosma; Olga Vaccaro; Silvia Burlina; Annunziata Lapolla
      Abstract: Aims Type 2 diabetes (DM2) is associated to oxidative modifications of high-density lipoproteins (HDL), which can interfere with their function. Pioglitazone has proved effective in raising HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) and lowering small dense low-density lipoprotein (LDL), but no clinical studies have examined its effect on lipoprotein oxidation in patients with DM2. Methods We assessed the effect of pioglitazone vs glimepiride after 1 year on HDL oxidation, expressed as relative abundance of peptides containing Met112O in ApoA-I (oxApoA-I) estimated by mass spectrometry (MALDI/TOF/TOF), in 95 patients with DM2. The oxLDL and AGE were quantified by ELISA. Results Patients receiving pioglitazone showed a significant increase in the concentration of ApoA-I (Δ = 7.2 ± 14.8 mg/dL, p < 0.02) and a reduction in oxApoA-I (Δ = − 1.0 ± 2.6%, p < 0.02); this reduction was not significantly different from glimepiride. oxLDL showed a slight, but not significant increase in both treatment groups. Regression analysis showed a correlation between ΔoxApoA-I and ΔAGE (r = 0.30; p = 0.007) in all patients, while both of these parameters were unrelated to changes in HbA1c, HDL-C, duration of illness, or use of statins. Conclusions Long-term treatment with pioglitazone was effective in reducing the oxidation of HDL, but not LDL in patients with DM2, while glimepiride didn’t. This finding seems to be associated to the change of glyco-oxidation status, not to any improvement in glycemic control or lipid profile. Trial registration NCT00700856, Registered June 18, 2008

    • Authors: Engy Shokry; Linda Marchioro; Olaf Uhl; Mercedes G. Bermúdez; Jose Antonio García-Santos; Mª Teresa Segura; Cristina Campoy; Berthold Koletzko
      Abstract: Aims Maternal obesity and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) were frequently reported to be risk factors for obesity and diabetes in offspring. Our goal was to study the impact of maternal prepregnancy BMI (pBMI) and GDM on both maternal and cord blood metabolic profiles. Methods We used LC–MS/MS to measure 201 metabolites comprising phospholipids (PL), amino acids, non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), organic acids, acyl carnitines (AC), and Krebs cycle metabolites in maternal plasma at delivery and cord plasma obtained from 325 PREOBE study participants. Results Several metabolites were associated with pBMI/GDM in both maternal and cord blood (p < 0.05), while others were specific to either blood sources. BMI was positively associated with leucine, isoleucine, and inflammation markers in both mother and offspring, while β-hydroxybutyric acid was positively associated only in cord blood. GDM showed elevated levels of sum of hexoses, a characteristic finding in both maternal and cord blood. Uniquely in cord blood of offspring born to GDM mothers, free carnitine was significantly lower with the same tendency observed for AC, long-chain NEFA, PL, specific Krebs cycle metabolites, and β-oxidation markers. Conclusions Maternal BMI and GDM are associated with maternal and cord blood metabolites supporting the hypothesis of transgenerational cycle of obesity and diabetes.

  • Gender difference in the risk for cardiovascular events or mortality of
           patients with diabetic foot syndrome
    • Authors: Giuseppe Seghieri; Laura Policardo; Elisa Gualdani; Roberto Anichini; Paolo Francesconi
      Abstract: Aims Diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) increases the risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), chronic kidney disease (CKD), or mortality. The present study aims at ascertaining whether such DFS-related excess risk differs between genders, retrospectively investigating a population with diabetes from Tuscany, Italy, followed-up for 6 years (2011–2016). Methods People with diabetes living in Tuscany on January 1st 2011 identified by administrative databases, were divided by baseline history of prior DFS hospitalizations, stratified by presence/absence of peripheral vascular disease and evaluating, by Cox regression analysis, whether adjusted DFS-related excess risk of incident ASCVD, CKD or mortality differed between genders. Results In an overall population of 165,650 subjects with diabetes (81,829M/83,821F), basal prevalence of DFS was twice higher among males, who were moreover at a significantly greater risk of all considered outcomes along the 6-year period. On the contrary, baseline DFS significantly increased the hospitalization risk for ASCVD, CKD and mortality equally or at a slightly greater extent in females, while the risk for stroke was significantly associated with DFS only among females (HR: 1.622 (1.314–1.980); p = 0.0001 vs. HR: 1.132 (0.955–1.332); p = NS). This finding was even reinforced in non-vascular DFS, which was associated with a significant raised risk for stroke, heart failure or mortality exclusively in females. Conclusions In this population, DFS prevalence and overall risk for ASCVD, CKD or mortality were significantly higher among males. Baseline co-presence of DFS, however, conferred a similar adjusted risk for all these outcomes between genders, and in case of non-vascular DFS the risk was significantly increased only among females.

  • Duodenal adipose tissue is associated with obesity in baboons ( Papio sp):
           a novel site of ectopic fat deposition in non-human primates
    • Abstract: Aims Ectopic fat is a recognized contributor to insulin resistance and metabolic dysfunction, while the role of fat deposition inside intestinal wall tissue remains understudied. We undertook this study to directly quantify and localize intramural fat deposition in duodenal tissue and determine its association with adiposity. Methods Duodenal tissues were collected from aged (21.2 ± 1.3 years, 19.5 ± 3.1 kg, n = 39) female baboons (Papio sp.). Fasted blood was collected for metabolic profiling and abdominal circumference (AC) measurements were taken. Primary tissue samples were collected at the major duodenal papilla at necropsy: one full cross section was processed for hematoxylin and eosin staining and evaluated; a second full cross section was processed for direct chemical lipid analysis on which percentage duodenal fat content was calculated. Results Duodenal fat content obtained by direct tissue quantification showed considerable variability (11.95 ± 6.93%) and was correlated with AC (r = 0.60, p < 0.001), weight (r = 0.38, p = 0.02), leptin (r = 0.63, p < 0.001), adiponectin (r = − 0.32, p < 0.05), and triglyceride (r = 0.41, p = 0.01). The relationship between duodenal fat content and leptin remained after adjusting for body weight and abdominal circumference. Intramural adipocytes were found in duodenal sections from all animals and were localized to the submucosa. Consistent with the variation in tissue fat content, the submucosal adipocytes were non-uniformly distributed in clusters of varying size. Duodenal adipocytes were larger in obese vs. lean animals (106.9 vs. 66.7 µm2, p = 0.02). Conclusions Fat accumulation inside the duodenal wall is strongly associated with adiposity and adiposity related circulating biomarkers in baboons. Duodenal tissue fat represents a novel and potentially metabolically active site of ectopic fat deposition.

  • Relation of the degree of obesity in childhood to adipose tissue insulin
    • Authors: Emilia Hagman; Omri Besor; Karen Hershkop; Nicola Santoro; Bridget Pierpont; Mariana Mata; Sonia Caprio; Ram Weiss
      Abstract: Aims In this study, we investigated whether adipose tissue insulin resistance (IR) is affected by the degree of obesity during the fasting and post-prandial state, independent of glucose tolerance among obese children and adolescents. We also tested whether systemic subclinical inflammation is associated with adipose tissue IR. Methods Subjects were recruited to the Yale Pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes in Youth Study (NCT01967849). An oral glucose-tolerance test was performed to establish glucose-tolerance status and blood samples were drawn for measurement of free fatty acids (FFAs), to calculate the area under the curve (AUC) of FFA. Adipose tissue insulin resistance was calculated as the product of insulin and FFA concentrations. Results In total, 671 children and adolescents (58.6% females) were included with a mean age of 13.3(2.7) years and BMI Z score of 2.45(0.31). The degree of obesity emerged as an independent predictor of both fasting and post-prandial adipose IR, p < 0.0001. Higher degree of obesity was associated with greater AUC FFA (lower suppression) compared to lower degree of obesity, p = 0.01. Furthermore, higher levels of IL-6 were positively associated with post-prandial adipose tissue IR, p = 0.02. Conclusions The degree of obesity in childhood and adolescence is strongly associated with adipose tissue IR independent of glucose tolerance. This is reflected not only in calculated indices of adipose IR but also in lower suppression of FFAs during the OGTT regardless of glucose tolerance or fasting adipose tissue IR. Furthermore, markers of subclinical inflammation such as IL-6 are associated with adipose tissue IR, independent of other factors.
