OBJECTIVE To determine the influence of microalbuminuria on pregnancy outcome in women with type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This prospective cohort study took place at the Obstetric Clinic at National University Hospital, Copenhagen, from January 1996 to February 2000. All Caucasian women with type 1 diabetes, unselected from the eastern part(More)
OBJECTIVE The use of cyclosporin in recent-onset type 1 diabetes has demonstrated the potential for immune intervention in the treatment and prevention of the disease. However, a proportion of patients failed to respond to cyclosporin treatment. Indicators of resistance to immune intervention would be valuable for the most effective use of such therapies in(More)
In the genetically homogeneous Danish population, 27 HLA-DR3,4 heterozygous patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and 19 DR3,4 heterozygous controls without family history of IDDM were investigated for HLA-region markers and Gm and Km immunoglobulin allotypes. The aim was to define susceptibility factors for IDDM development other than(More)
OBJECTIVE In a previous study, urinary orosomucoid excretion rate (UOER) independently predicted cardiovascular mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes. The aim of the present study was to determine whether increased UOER is associated with cardiovascular risk factors such as inflammation, impaired left ventricular function and endothelial dysfunction in(More)
OBJECTIVES Increased urinary orosomucoid excretion rate (UOER) independently predicted cardiovascular mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes at 5-years of follow-up. To further explore UOER in relation to local renal physiological phenomena, we studied renal glomerular and tubular functions in patients with type 2 diabetes and normal or increased UOER.(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and coronary artery disease (CAD) have increased risk of cardiac dysfunction. The diabetic heart is characterized by increased fatty acid oxidation and reduced glucose uptake resulting in reduced cardiac efficiency. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) has shown to increase myocardial glucose uptake and to improve(More)
