Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin Level Enhances Prediction of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus in a Sub-Saharan African Population.

West Afr J Med 2022 Jun;39(6):580-587

Department of Chemical Pathology, Benue State University, Makurdi, Nigeria.

Background: The burden of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) in the Sub-Saharan African region has been on the rise despite increased diagnosis and treatment. Current risk factor-based prediction approaches in the region lack strong predictive value, hence the need for effective early prediction and preventive interventions.

Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic improvement in prediction of GDM by the addition of Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) assay to current approaches which assess early pregnancy maternal clinical risk factors in the study population. Read More

Maternal AA/EPA Ratio and Triglycerides as Potential Biomarkers of Patients at Major Risk for Pharmacological Therapy in Gestational Diabetes.

Nutrients 2022 Jun 16;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 16.

Obstetrics Unit, Department of Woman Child and Newborn, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda, Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, 20122 Milan, Italy.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GD) is characterized by glycemic and lipid metabolism alterations in an environment of low-grade inflammation. Our trial aimed to assess the effect of nutraceutical supplements (omega-3 fatty acids, anthocyanins, and alpha-cyclodextrins) in GD patients and evaluate the role of anthropometric, metabolic, and inflammatory parameters as biomarkers to identify subjects who require pharmacological hypoglycemic treatment during gestation. Pregnant women with GD at 24-28 weeks of gestation were enrolled in a double-blind trial and randomized to receive either nutraceutical supplements or a placebo for 12 weeks. Read More

Serine Hydrolases in Lipid Homeostasis of the Placenta-Targets for Placental Function?

Int J Mol Sci 2022 Jun 20;23(12). Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical University of Graz, 8036 Graz, Austria.

The metabolic state of pregnant women and their unborn children changes throughout pregnancy and adapts to the specific needs of each gestational week. These adaptions are accomplished by the actions of enzymes, which regulate the occurrence of their endogenous substrates and products in all three compartments: mother, placenta and the unborn. These enzymes determine bioactive lipid signaling, supply, and storage through the generation or degradation of lipids and fatty acids, respectively. Read More

The Role of Kisspeptin in the Pathogenesis of Pregnancy Complications: A Narrative Review.

Int J Mol Sci 2022 Jun 14;23(12). Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Obstetrics and Perinatology, Medical University of Lublin, Jaczewskiego 8, 20-090 Lublin, Poland.

Kisspeptins are the family of neuropeptide products of the gene that exert the biological action by binding with the G-protein coupled receptor 54 (GPR54), also known as the KISS-1 receptor. The kisspeptin level dramatically increases during pregnancy, and the placenta is supposed to be its primary source. The role of kisspeptin has already been widely studied in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, fertility, puberty disorders, and insulin resistance-related conditions, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, polycystic ovary syndrome, and obesity.

Histomorphometric and oxidative evaluation of the offspring's testis from type 2 diabetic female rats treated with metformin and pentoxifylline.

Int J Exp Pathol 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Veterinary Medicine, Federal Rural University of Pernambuco, Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) during pregnancy is characterized by high levels of reactive oxygen species and pro-inflammatory factors in the placenta. Once these reactive species reach the foetus, they trigger physiological adaptations that allow the foetus to survive, but programme the organism to develop metabolic disorders in adulthood. The male reproductive system is highly susceptible to foetal programming. Read More

Development and internal validation of a model to predict type 2 diabetic complications after gestational diabetes.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 20;12(1):10377. Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Occupational Health, McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) increases the risk of early-onset type 2 diabetes, which further exacerbates the risk of developing diabetic complications such as kidney, circulatory, and neurological complications. Yet, existing models have solely focused on the prediction of type 2 diabetes, and not of its complications, which are arguably the most clinically relevant outcomes. Our aim was to develop a prediction model for type 2 diabetic complications in patients with GDM. Read More
