Impact of an intensive lifestyle intervention on use and cost of medical services among overweight and obese adults with type 2 diabetes: the action for health in diabetes.

CONCLUSIONS: Compared with DSE over 10 years, ILI participants had fewer hospitalizations, fewer medications, and lower health-care costs.

Birth Weight and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes in the Black Women's Health Study: Does Adult BMI Play a Mediating Role?
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:55:28 +0100 | Diabetes Care
CONCLUSIONS: Very low birth weight and low birth weight appear to be associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes in African American women, and the association does not seem to be mediated through BMI. The prevalence of low birth weight is especially high in African American populations, and this may explain in part the higher occurrence of type 2 diabetes.

Coronary artery calcification in obese youth: what are the phenotypic and metabolic determinants?
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:55:27 +0100 | Diabetes Care
CONCLUSIONS: Early in the course of obesity, there is evidence of CAC independent of glycemia. The different biomarkers of subclinical atherosclerosis appear to be differentially modulated, adiposity being the major determinant of CAC, hyperglycemia, age, and race for IMT, and leptin and IS for arterial stiffness. These findings highlight the increased cardiovascular disease risk in obese youth and the need for early interventions to reverse obesity and atherosclerosis.

Validation of the Sonomat: A Contactless Monitoring System Used for the Diagnosis of Sleep Disordered Breathing
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 16:48:55 +0100 | Sleep
Conclusion:These data indicate that the Sonomat was reliable and accurate for the diagnosis of OSA. The provision of audible breath sound/snoring replay permits more accurate quantification of snoring. It requires no patient attachment and can be performed in the home with minimal training.Citation:Norman MB, Middleton S, Erskine O, Middleton PG, Wheatley JR, Sullivan CE.

Taurine in normal pregnancy and preeclampsia: Fetal-placental-maternal cross talk
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 13:41:31 +0100 | Placenta
Objectives: The amino acid taurine is required for organ development and function. Taurine is conditionally essential during intrauterine life and both fetal and placental taurine requirements depend on syncytiotrophoblast uptake from maternal blood via the taurine transporter (TauT). We previously showed that syncytiotrophoblast TauT activity is lower in maternal obesity (BMI>30kg/m2) and preeclampsia compared to normal pregnancy (NP), potentially reducing taurine in placenta and fetus. However, reasons for this reduced TauT activity are unknown. TauT activity can be regulated by taurine availability. Here we test the hypothesis that reduced syncytiotrophoblast TauT activity in maternal obesity and preeclampsia is related to maternal and/or fetal plasma taurine concentration. (Source: Pla...

Maternal obesity is associated with an altered antioxidant system in the umbilical artery endothelium: new insights into vascular fetal programming by maternal obesity?
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 13:40:44 +0100 | Placenta
Bakcground: Elevated body mass index during pregnancy has been associated to systemic oxidative stress, and correlates to high fetal weight at birth. Fetuses born large for gestational age (over percentile 90) have an increased risk of cardiometabolic disorders during adulthood (fetal programming); including vascular dysfunction. (Source: Placenta)
