BACKGROUND Information regarding the variability of metabolite levels over time in an individual is required to estimate the reproducibility of metabolite measurements. In intervention studies, it is critical to appropriately judge changes that are elicited by any kind of intervention. The pre-analytic phase (collection, transport and sample processing) is(More)
The gut microbiota has been linked to metabolic diseases. However, information on the microbiome of young adults at risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D) is lacking. The aim of this cross-sectional analysis was to investigate whether insulin resistant women with previous gestational diabetes (pGDM), a high risk group for T2D, differ in their stool microbiota from(More)
BACKGROUND Nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) play pathophysiological roles in metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes (T2D). In this study, we analyzed the fasting NEFA profiles of normoglycemic individuals at risk for T2D (women with a recent history of gestational diabetes (GDM)) in comparison to controls (women after a normoglycemic pregnancy). We also(More)
CONTEXT The pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes (T2D) is still incompletely understood. In-depth phenotyping of young individuals at risk for T2D can contribute to the understanding of this process. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to metabolically characterize women with recent gestational diabetes (GDM), an at-risk cohort for T2D. STUDY(More)
We analyzed the association of sleep quality and glucose metabolism in women after gestational diabetes (pGDM) and in women after normoglycemic pregnancy (controls). Data during pregnancy and a visit within the first 15 months after delivery were collected from 61 pGDM and 30 controls in a prospective cohort study. This included a medical history, physical(More)
BACKGROUND Serum nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) are known to be associated with the development of insulin resistance. Recently, differences in the NEFA profile were found in subjects with history of gestational diabetes (postGDM) and healthy controls. Little is known about the NEFA sources in the postprandial state, which prevails most of the day in(More)
