1. Genetic and Metabolic Markers for the Development of Diabetes after Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
Sammanfattning : The aims of this work were to determine the prevalence of postpartum diabetes among women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in a prospective study 5 years postpartum; to characterize these women according to insulin secretion, insulin sensitivity, autoimmunity and genetics; and to identify possible markers and predictors for the development of manifest diabetes. The subjects were recruited through a regional screening programme in which oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTTs) are routinely offered to all pregnant women. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Disturbances of glucose metabolism such as type 2 diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance are established risk factors for cardiovascular disease and mortality. The disturbances lead to hyperglycaemia and the most common methods to diagnose hyperglycaemia are HbA1c, oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and fasting plasma glucose (FPG). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Dermal interstitial fluid (IF) was extracted serially and painlessly by brief suction for as long as 6 days. The erosion was otherwise kept occluded, Sample volumes exceded those required for measuring a wide range of biological substances. Epidermal regeneration was rapid. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Glucose is an important nutrient and energy source in the body. However, too high concentration in the blood is harmful and may lead to several complications developing over time. It was estimated that 5 million people in the world died from complications related to diabetes during 2015. LÄS MER
5. Mechanism-Based Modeling of the Glucose-Insulin Regulation during Clinical Provocation Experiments
Sammanfattning : Type 2 diabetes is a complex chronic metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia associated with a relative deficiency of insulin secretion and a reduced response of target tissues to insulin. Considerable efforts have been put into the development of models describing the glucose-insulin system. LÄS MER
