Arafa Noha , Hafez Mona , Anwar Ghada , Abdou Marise , Ibrahim Rania

Background: In the light of emerging recent researches and the use of continuous glucose monitoring it was shown that other nutritional properties of food, including fat, protein, and glycemic index (GI), can significantly affect postprandial glucose excursions. These findings highlight the need for alternative mealtime insulin dosing algorithms and have important implications for nutrition education and counseling in patients with diabetes.Objective and...

ACE Gene Insertion/Deletion Polymorphism and ACE Enzymatic Activity in Egyptian Children with Type 1 Diabetes with and without Microalbuminuria

Anwar Ghada , Bazaraa Hafez , Shaker Olfat , Arafa Noha , Hafez Mona , Mousa Noha

Background: Diabetic nephropathy is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among young adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Strong evidence exists in multiple studies for genetic predisposition of diabetic nephropathy. Genetic studies have revealed that the genes for the renin┬ľangiotensin system (RAS) are highly polymorphic, one of such is insertion/deletion polymorphism in ACE gene. This polymorphism was associated with the circulating ACE level and increased plasma a...
