      Interaction Between Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Strategies and Genetic Determinants of Coronary Artery Disease on Cardiometabolic Risk Factors

      By electricdiet / January 13, 2020

      Abstract Coronary artery disease (CAD) is more frequent among individuals with dysglycemia. Preventive interventions for diabetes can improve cardiometabolic risk factors (CRFs), but it is unclear whether the benefits on CRFs are similar for individuals at different genetic risk for CAD. We built a 201-variant polygenic risk score (PRS) for CAD and tested for interaction […]

        By electricdiet / January 11, 2020

        My husband’s natural penchant to chat led us to acquire 28 pounds of fresh, ripe peaches for $10 last week at the farmers’ market. Needless to say, I’ve been looking for peachy ideas and stumbled onto Peach Chia Jam made in the Instant Pot. I’ve seen a lot of chia jam recipes before, mostly of […]

              Longitudinal Pattern of First-Phase Insulin Response Is Associated With Genetic Variants Outside the Class II HLA Region in Children With Multiple Autoantibodies

              By electricdiet / January 5, 2020

              Abstract A declining first-phase insulin response (FPIR) is associated with positivity for multiple islet autoantibodies, irrespective of class II HLA DR-DQ genotype. We examined the associations of FPIR with genetic variants outside the HLA DR-DQ region in the Finnish Type 1 Diabetes Prediction and Prevention (DIPP) study in children with and without multiple autoantibodies. Association […]

                By electricdiet / January 3, 2020

                Craving pizza? Try making a pizza frittata like Chicken Tikka Masala Frittata. No carby crust in sight! I’d never quite mastered the technique of making a frittata, but many of my friends rave about what a quick dinner they can be. Craving pizza and finding a jar of tikka masala sauce in the refrigerator encouraged […]

                    Everyone with diabetes is bound to experience high blood sugars. There are simply too many variables out of our control to prevent high blood sugars from ever happening.  But the best thing we can do when they do happen is to help them come down as quickly as possible.

                      Crucial Role of the SH2B1 PH Domain for the Control of Energy Balance

                      By electricdiet / December 28, 2019

                      Abstract Disruption of the adaptor protein SH2B1 (SH2-B, PSM) is associated with severe obesity, insulin resistance, and neurobehavioral abnormalities in mice and humans. Here, we identify 15 SH2B1 variants in severely obese children. Four obesity-associated human SH2B1 variants lie in the Pleckstrin homology (PH) domain, suggesting that the PH domain is essential for SH2B1’s function. […]
