The theme of this year’s meeting is Variety and Variation in Paediatric Endocrinology. Join us in Vienna to explore the diversity we encounter in our discipline and the care that we have to exercise when using the term “normality”. Whilst gaining an update on the latest treatments, clinical best practice and cutting edge research in the field of paediatric endocrinology.

Accuracy of Glucose Sensor Estimate of HbA1c in Children with Type 1 Diabetes

Ehtisham Sarah , Adhami Sara

Introduction: Glucose sensor usage is increasing in the paediatric type 1 diabetes population. The sensor downloads can provide valuable information about glycaemic levels over a 90-day period and generate an estimated HbA1c based on the average glucose level.Aim: We aimed to test whether the sensor-estimated HbA1c over 90 days was an accurate prediction of the measured HbA1c and whether its accuracy correlated with perc...

β-Cell Function and Glucose Effectiveness in the Development of Impaired Fasting Glucose in Obese European Children and Adolescents

Denzer Christian , Kohlsdorf Katja , von Schnurbein Julia , Wabitsch Martin , Vogt Josef

Objectives: Impaired fasting glucose (IFG) is a risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes in adults. In obese children and adolescents, IFG and impaired glucose tolerance constitute distinct prediabetic stages, which do not necessarily coexist. Pathophysiological mechanisms leading to IFG in children have not been fully elucidated. Available data from cohorts of obese adolescents living in the US suggest a concurrent worsening of insulin sensitivity a...

Osteopontin as an Early Urinary Marker of Diabetic Nephropathy in Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Ibrahim Amany , Soliman Hend , Abdullatif Mona , Sabry Aly

Introduction: Patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) have a higher rate of morbidity and mortality compared with the general population, which varies across countries. Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a common and serious complication of T1D. Osteopontin (OPN) is a calcium binding phosphoprotein that is expressed in glomerular basement membrane. OPN can be a potential marker of vasculopathy and subclinical atherosclerosis and hence a predictor of DN in T1D patients. ...

Handgrip Strength Correlates with Insulin Resistance and the Metabolic Syndrome in Children and Adolescents: Analysis of the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2014-2016

Woon Jung Hae , Ah Lee Young , Yong Lee Seong , Ho Shin Choong , Won Yang Sei , Hyun Kim Jae

Introduction: Reduced muscle strength is associated with increased cardiometabolic morbidity and mortality. Handgrip strength (HGS) is an indicator of muscle strength and has been correlated with total muscle strength in children and adolescents. We aimed to evaluate the association between HGS and parameters of the metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance in children and adolescents.Methods: A total of 2,242 children a...

Background: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common neurobehavioral disorder of childhood. Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is the most common metabolic disease in children. The treatment of T1DM requires high executive functions and requires very intensive treatment that could be an obstacle for patients with ADHD. Dual diagnosis of T1DM and ADHD might affect treatment, control and complications of T1DM. In order to prevent long-term complica...

Health-Related Quality of Life and Diabetes Control in Immigrant and Italian Children and Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes and in their Parents

Predieri Barbara , Boncompagni Alessandra , Bruzzi Patrizia , Cenciarelli Valentina , Madeo Simona F. , Pugliese Marisa , Toffoli Carlotta , Bocchi Federica , Iughetti Lorenzo

Background/Objectives: Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic metabolic disease that requires daily and complex management for both patients and their caregivers, impairing the quality of life. Aim of this cross-sectional observational study was to determine whether metabolic control and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of T1D subjects and their parents could be influenced by immigration status.Methods: We enrolled 125...
