BACKGROUND Cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF) may cluster in type 1 diabetes, analogously to the metabolic syndrome described in type 2 diabetes. The threshold of HbA1c above which lipid variables start changing behavior is unclear. This study aims to 1) assess the behavior of dyslipidemia according to HbA1c values; 2) detect a threshold of HbA1c beyond(More)
BACKGROUND Polymorphisms of vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene have been studied as genetic markers of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and some studies have reported associations with autoimmune thyroid disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between VDR FokI polymorphism (rs10735810), thyroid autoimmunity and thyroid dysfunction (TD) in(More)
The effect of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms on susceptibility to type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is heterogeneous. Genetic factors may also influence the residual beta-cell function. We studied the frequency of VDR FokI (rs10735810) and BsmI (rs154410) polymorphisms in T1DM and their relationship to beta-cell autoimmunity and residual beta-cell(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to establish the best cutoff values for waist circumference (WC), body mass index (BMI) and HOMA-IR (HR) to identify a cluster (≥ 3) of cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF) in normal glucose-tolerant (NGT) Brazilian children and adolescents. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Cross-sectional study of 319 individuals (aged 10 to 19y)(More)
