Assessment of glucose regulation in pregnancy after gastric bypass surgery

Aims/hypothesis Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery is characterised by glycaemic variability. Prospective studies of glucose metabolism in pregnancy after RYGB are not available, therefore this study aimed to evaluate physiological alterations in glucose metabolism in pregnancy following RYGB. Methods Sixty-three pregnant women (25 who underwent RYGB, 19 non-operated obese ...

Altered glucose profiles and risk for hypoglycaemia during oral glucose tolerance testing in pregnancies after gastric bypass surgery

Aims/hypothesis A history of gastric bypass surgery can influence the results of the OGTT recommended during pregnancy. Therefore, we compared OGTT glucose kinetics and pregnancy outcome between pregnant gastric bypass patients and BMI-matched, lean and obese controls. Methods Medical records were used to collect data on glucose measurements during the 2 h 75 g OGTT as well as on ...

Application of Penalized Regression Techniques in Modelling Insulin Sensitivity by Correlated Metabolic Parameters

This paper aims to introduce penalized estimation techniques in clinical investigations of diabetes, as well as to assess their possible advantages and limitations. Data from a previous study was used to carry out the simulations to assess: a) which procedure results in the lowest prediction error of the final model in the setting of a large number of predictor variables with high ...

Clinical and metabolic characteristics of treated hyperlipidemic patients additionally affected by subclinical hyperglycemia

Background Impaired glucose regulation (IGR) and hyperlipidemia (HL) are associated with an increased risk of developing a cardiovascular disease. Hyperlipidemic patients were shown to bear a greater risk for an increased intima media thickness (IMT). However little is known about differences between treated hyperlipidemic patients (HL) with normal (NGR) or impaired (IGR) glucose ...

To Assess the Association between Glucose Metabolism and Ectopic Lipid Content in Different Clinical Classifications of PCOS

Aims There are emerging data indicating an association between PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and metabolic derangements with potential impact on its clinical presentation. This study aims to evaluate the pathophysiological processes beyond PCOS with particular focus on carbohydrate metabolism, ectopic lipids and their possible interaction. Differences between the two established ...

Biomarkers of endothelial dysfunction in relation to impaired carbohydrate metabolism following pregnancy with gestational diabetes mellitus

Background History of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) identifies a very young population of females predisposed for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Endothelial dysfunction might represent a shared precursor of both disorders. Hence, this study aimed to characterize endothelial biomarkers in relation to impaired insulin sensitivity and progression to overt diabetes ...

Fatty Liver Index Predicts Further Metabolic Deteriorations in Women with Previous Gestational Diabetes

Background and Aims Determinants of fatty liver (FL) might be predictive for further deterioration in insulin resistance (IR) in women with previous gestational diabetes (pGDM). The aim was to evaluate the association between pGDM, FL and future manifestation of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) by a detailed pathophysiological characterization early after pregnancy. Methods 68 pGDM and 29 ...
