BACKGROUND Low birth weight is associated with altered renal development, adult onset hypertension and renal disease. The aim of this prospective longitudinal study was to estimate the renal growth during the first 2 years of life in small-for-gestational age (SGA) infants of varied gestational age (GA) and with differing degrees of growth retardation (GR)(More)
OBJECTIVE The study was to determine whether being the macrosomic offspring of a mother without detected glucose intolerance during pregnancy has an impact on lipid profile, glucose homeostasis, and blood pressure during childhood. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Plasma total, HDL, and LDL cholesterol; triglycerides; apolipoprotein (Apo) A-1, -B, and -E;(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease risk factors in prepubertal children born large for gestational age (LGA) to nondiabetic, nonobese mothers. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS At 6-7 years of age, the comparison of various factors was made between 31 LGA and 34 appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) children: fibrinogen,(More)
BACKGROUND Children born with growth retardation (GR) have a smaller nephron number and are at increased risk for the development of renal disease and hypertension in adult life. Data on the immediate post-natal development of renal function in neonates born with GR are limited and data on the effects of aminoglycosides (AGs) on renal function in these(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to test whether being born small for gestational age (SGA) has an impact on adiponectin and leptin levels and the IGF system in relation to insulin sensitivity, taking into consideration the severity of growth restriction. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Serum levels of adiponectin, leptin, fasting glucose, fasting insulin(More)

BACKGROUND Low birth weight (LBW) is associated with adult-onset diseases, including hypertension and renal disease; altered renal development after intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) may underlie related prenatal programming. No data are available on longitudinal renal growth in twin infants born small for gestational age (SGA). The aim of this(More)
