Deep subcutaneous adipose tissue is associated with hyperinsulinemia in adolescents

Cerenius Sara Y. , Stenlid Rasmus , Aydin Banu , Weghuber Daniel , Bergsten Peter , Forslund Anders

Introduction: Abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) is subdivided into two depots by the fascia of Scarpa. The deep SAT (dSAT) and superficial SAT (sSAT) are morphologically and metabolically distinct, with dSAT reportedly being more similar to visceral adipose tissue (VAT) in terms of elevating the risk for obesity-related complications. Conversely, sSAT appears to be more similar to lower-body SAT. The relationship between dSAT and metabolic disease ha...

The influence of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and of its genetics on thyroid function in children with obesity

Background: The patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 3 (PNPLA3) I148M and the transmembrane 6 superfamily member 2 (TM6SF2) E167K polymorphisms have been recognized as the major risk polymorphisms for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Data supported a close relationship of NAFLD with thyroid function both in adults and children. To investigate the influence of NAFLD and of its genetics on thyroid function.<p class...

Dasiglucagon Significantly Reduces Requirement for Intravenous Glucose in Children with Congenital Hyperinsulinism ages 7 Days to 12 Months

De Leon Diva D. , Banerjee Indraneel , M Kendall David , Birch Sune , Bøge Eva , Ivkovic Jelena , Thornton Paul S

Background: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a rare disease affecting neonates, infants, and children. CHI is characterized by dysregulated insulin secretion resulting in severe recurrent hypoglycemia. Early treatment is necessary to limit the risk of neurologic and developmental sequelae. Current treatment options are limited and inadequate. Dasiglucagon (DASI) is a glucagon analog suitable for continuous subcutaneous infusion which has been shown to raise...

CRN04777, an oral, nonpeptide selective SST5 receptor agonist, dose-dependently suppresses both fasting and stimulated insulin secretion: results from a first in human study

Congenital hyperinsulinism (HI) is the most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in neonates, infants, and children, and is caused by genetic mutations in pancreatic beta-cells. Current therapies are burdensome, have limited efficacy, and are associated with significant morbidity. CRN04777 is a potent, orally-bioavailable, selective SST5 agonist that suppresses insulin secretion in the terminal steps of the insulin secretion pathway and could be useful for patients with con...

Serum kisspeptin, neurokinin B and inhibin B levels can be used as an auxiliary parameter to distinguish idiopathic CPP from premature thelarche in the early stages of puberty

Vuralli Dogus , Ciftci Nurdan , Demirbilek Huseyin

Background: There are controversial results among the results of various studies evaluating diagnostic utility of kisspeptin, NKB, AMH, and INHB for demonstrating activation of hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis in girls with CPP.Aim: To evaluate these 4 neuropeptides in the same individuals who presented with early pubertal signs and their validity in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of CPP.<p class="abstex...

The follicle-stimulating hormone receptor is expressed in human pancreatic islet beta-cells and its activation increases glucose stimulated insulin secretion

Aydin Banu K. , Chowdhury Azazul , Incedal Ceren , Wen Quan , Cerenius Sara Y. , Stenlid Rasmus , Forslund Anders , Idevall Olof , Bergsten Peter

Background: Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) plays a key role in reproduction. The G-protein coupled FSH receptor (FSHR), is expressed primarily in gonads, and specifically binds FSH. FSHR is also expressed in vascular endothelium, osteoclasts, adipose tissue, monocytes and rodent pancreatic islets. Elevated FSH levels are associated with development of obesity, insulin resistance, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease. In a recent study, we showed that h...
