We measured plasma concentrations of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), endothelin-1 (ET-1), soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (sVCAM-1) and E-selectin in 56 patients with gestational diabetes (GDM), 68 pregnant women with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) and 36 healthy non-pregnant women. ADMA concentrations were markedly lower in NGT [0.48(More)
OBJECTIVES We studied the effect of an oral glucose load on circulating ghrelin, as well as ghrelin and ghrelin receptor (GHS-R1a) mRNA expression in subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT), visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and placental tissue from pregnant women with gestational diabetes (GDM) and normal glucose tolerance (NGT). METHODS Plasma total ghrelin(More)
