Sammanfattning : Type 1 and type 2 diabetes increase worldwide, leading to a heavy burden of disease and its complications. All 1666 adults aged 18-100 years with new onset diabetes in Kronoberg during 3 years were registered, and type of diabetes classified by pancreatic autoantibodies and C-peptide. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Insulin biosynthesis in the beta-cells of the pancreas begins with the generation of preproinsulin, which is converted to proinsulin. Proinsulin is cleaved into equimolar amounts of insulin and connecting peptide (Cpeptide), which are released into the circulation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Proinsulin C-peptide is depleted together with insulin in type I diabetic patients. The supplement of insulin to these patients is necessary for their survival, but it is also likely that the loss of C-peptide may contribute to both short- and long-term complications. In this thesis, molecular effects of C-peptide have been investigated. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Diabetic kidney disease is a serious complication of diabetes with a complex and incompletely understood pathology. In this work, the molecular changes in diabetic rat kidneys at a very early disease stage were studied using nanospray desorption electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry imaging. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In the past decade, new evidence has emerged of a physiological role for C-peptide. C-peptide replacement improves renal and nerve function and augments regional blood flow in type I diabetic patients. LÄS MER
