Background: Type 2 diabetes is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by the defective of insulin, which can not progressively compensate for insulin resistance, due to the influence of environmental factors on the basis of genetic susceptibility. Hyperglycemia, which starts with insulin resistance, is thought to show toxic effects (glucotoxicity) on β cells and ultimately impairs beta cell function., Although many factors play a role in etiology, obesity is the most comm...

Aim: Premature pubarche is defined as the start of axillary and pubic hair before age 9 in boys and 8 in girls. 10 times more common in girls than boys. Central precocious puberty is a condition due to early activation of hypothalamic-pituitary- gonadal axis associated with breast development before age 8 in girls and testicular volume growth before age 9 in boys. Despite this axle is not known exactly which hormones are respnsible for the activation, the role of kisspeptin&#1...

The weight of birth affects the weight status and fat distribution in the later period of life. It is suggested that both low and high birth weight pose a risk for cardiometabolic diseases. In this study, the effects of birth weight on body fat mass and body fat distribution parameters during childhood and adolescence period were evaluated.Method: In this cross-sectional study, 4581 children ages between 6-17 years at primary and secon...
