Common variants of fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO, fat mass- and obesity-associated gene) have been shown to be associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes in population of European and non-European ethnicity. However, studies in Indian population have provided inconsistent results. Here, we examined association of eight FTO variants (rs1421085,(More)
OBJECTIVE Relationship of high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) with metabolic syndrome (MetS) is well documented in many populations, but comprehensive data is lacking in Indian population. Thus, we set out to investigate the association of hsCRP levels with MetS and its features and the effect of obesity and insulin resistance on this association in(More)
Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have discovered association of several loci with Type 2 diabetes (T2D), a common complex disease characterized by impaired insulin secretion by pancreatic β cells and insulin signaling in target tissues. However, effect of genetic risk variants on continuous glycemic measures in nondiabetic subjects mainly elucidates(More)
As antioxidants play a protective role in the pathophysiology of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, understanding the physiological status of antioxidant concentration among people at high risk for developing these conditions, such as Metabolic Syndrome, is of interest. In present study out of 187 first degree non-diabetic relatives and 192 non-diabetic(More)
Pre-operative glucose control with subcutaneous insulin in non-urgent situations is logical and well accepted. But the best regimen amongst the many available ones of insulin administration during peroperative period during major surgery is uncertain. We compared three subcutaneous insulin regimens for pre-operative glucose control in type 2 diabetes(More)
Clustering of insulin resistance and dysmetabolism with obesity is attributed to pathologic adipose tissue. The morphologic hallmarks of this pathology are adipocye hypertrophy and heightened inflammation. However, it's underlying molecular mechanisms remains unknown. Study of gene function in metabolically active tissues like adipose tissue, skeletal(More)
Asian Indians are known to be at a higher risk of developing T2DM, but the underlying genetic factor in this population is still not well understood. T2DM is a complex genetic trait and assessment of disease related intermediate phenotypic traits is an important initial step towards any systematic genomic study. Therefore, in the present study we have(More)
To determine the various factors influencing glycemic response to pioglitazone monotherapy in newly diagnosed Asian Indian T2DM patients. Thirty T2DM patients (age 53.23 +/- 8.067 yrs, M: F ratio 14:16) were treated with pioglitazone for at least 14 weeks. Relationship between its glucose lowering effect and following patient parameters was studied: BMI,(More)
Though multiple studies link chromosomal regions 1q21-q23 and 20q13 with type 2 diabetes, fine mapping of these regions is yet to confirm gene(s) explaining the linkages. These candidate regions remain unexplored in Indians, which is a high-risk population for type 2 diabetes. Hypothesizing regulatory regions to have a more important role in complex(More)
