We have characterized the abnormalities of glucose metabolism associated with Friedreich's ataxia (FA) by studying plasma glucose, insulin, growth hormone (GH), and glucagon before and after an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), an IV glucose load, and an IV arginine load, in 21 patients and in controls. Twelve patients were normotolerant (NT) to glucose, five glucose-intolerant (IT), and four diabetic (DM). Insulin secretion of IT patients was increased and delayed during OGTT. Interestingly… Expand
Cross-sectional analysis of glucose metabolism in Friedreich Ataxia
TLDR
Regression analysis evaluated glucose, insulin, and homeostatic model assessment (HOMA) of insulin resistance (IR) and beta-cell function (ß) in relation to age, BMI, sex, and genetic severity in Friedreich ataxia. Expand
OGTT is recommended for glucose homeostasis assessments in Friedreich ataxia
TLDR
It is found that diabetes is underdiagnosed with fasting glucose alone, and the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) provides 1.2‐ to 3.5‐fold more diagnoses of impaired glucose homeostasis and diabetes, and adequately measures insulin sensitivity, insulin secretion, and β‐cell function. Expand
Diabetes in Friedreich Ataxia
TLDR
The clinical data on diabetes in Friedreich ataxia, and the experimental data from rodent and in vitro models of the disease are reviewed, paving the way for new therapeutic approaches. Expand
[Friedreich ataxia and diabetes mellitus--family study].
TLDR
The case study of two twin sisters with 28 years old, in whom FA was diagnosed in the first decade, both of them with diabetes since their early twenties is reported, and the FA associated diabetes pathophysiology is discussed, concerning the therapeutic approach. Expand
Glycation in Huntington’s Disease: A Possible Modifier and Target for Intervention
TLDR
The possible connection between glycation and proteostasis imbalances in HD is explored, and it is posited that it may contribute to disease progression, possibly by accelerating protein aggregation and deposition. Expand
Heterozygous expansion of the GAA tract of the X25/frataxin gene is associated with insulin resistance in humans.
TLDR
A heterozygous expansion of the X25/frataxin GAA repeat in healthy individuals is associated with insulin resistance and might be considered a genetic co-factor in the pathogenesis of mitochondrial subtypes of diabetes. Expand
Diabetes mellitus in Friedreich Ataxia: A case series of 19 patients from the German-Austrian diabetes mellitus registry.
TLDR
Patients with DM in FRDA may show a relevant risk to ketoacidotic complications, which should be avoided, and FRDA patients did not show overweight and HbA1c levels were even lower than in T1Dm or T2Dm patients, indicating good overall diabetes control. Expand
Huntington's Disease of the Endocrine Pancreas: Insulin Deficiency and Diabetes Mellitus due to Impaired Insulin Gene Expression
TLDR
Selective dysregulation of gene expression in triplet repeat disorders provides a mechanism for pleiotropic cellular dysfunction that restricts the toxicity of ubiquitously expressed proteins to highly specialized subpopulations of cells. Expand
Neurodegenerative disorders associated with diabetes mellitus

TLDR
Preliminary conclusions suggest that many of the diabetogenic neurodegenerative disorders are related to alterations in oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and mitochondrial nutrient metabolism, which coincide with aberrant protein precipitation in the majority of affected individuals. Expand
The Role of Oxidative Stress and Hypoxia in Pancreatic Beta-Cell Dysfunction in Diabetes Mellitus.
TLDR
Better understanding of the role of oxidative changes, its modulation by genes involved in disease risk, and effects on beta-cell identity may facilitate the development of new therapeutic strategies to this disease. Expand

Friedreich's ataxia and oral glucose tolerance: I. The effect of ingested glucose on serum glucose and insulin values in homozygotes, obligate heterozygotes and potential carriers of the Friedreich's ataxia gene.
TLDR
Impaired glucose tolerance differed in incidence according to the method of evaluation, but was increased in number in parents and siblings of Friedreich's cases, suggesting a defect in glucose entry into cells. Expand
Glucose and insulin metabolism in Friedreich's ataxia.
TLDR
It is shown that most patients with ataxia have normal or low fasting insulin levels, but a hyperinsulinic response to a glucose load, which does not appear to be specific to that form ofAtaxia. Expand
Pyruvate metabolism in Friedreich's ataxia.
TLDR
It is concluded that the defect is in the metabolic regulation of PDH, probably at the E3 (lipoamide dehydrogenase) step. Expand
An investigation of pyruvate metabolism in patients with cerebellar and spinocerebellar degeneration
TLDR
The findings suggest that abnormal pyruvate oxidation occurs in some cases of Friedreich's ataxia and primary cerebellar degeneration and that the abnormality of pyruVate metabolism is not necessarily reflected in the serum LAD activity of these patients. Expand

Insulin Resistance is a Prominent Feature of Insulin-dependent Diabetes
TLDR
The present results indicate that impaired insulin action is a common feature of insulin-dependent diabetics, despite daily insulin requirements that would not clinically characterize them as being insulin resistant. Expand
Growth Hormone Levels in Diabetes: Correlation with the Clinical Control of the Disease
TLDR
The suggested HGH abnormalities in diabetes are a consequence of the metabolic disturbance and no difference was observed between newly diagnosed diabetics and patients known to have had diabetes for some years. Expand
Importance of raised growth hormone levels in mediating the metabolic derangements of diabetes.
TLDR
The moderate elevations in growth hormone levels that occur in poorly controlled diabetes can themselves reproduce the whole spectrum of abnormal metabolic fuel concentrations that are associated with poor diabetic control, despite optimized insulin treatment. Expand
Diabetes mellitus in Friedreich's ataxia.
TLDR
Thoren (1962), in Sweden, made a systematic survey of 50 patients with Friedreich's ataxia, all of whom were aged 48 years or less, and found nine cases of known diabetes mellitus (an incidence of 18 %). Expand
Friedreich's ataxia
TLDR
Nine patients with typical Friedreich's ataxia had normal levels of pyruvate and lactate in blood, urine, and CSF, and significant differences between the two groups were also observed in lactate-pyruVate ratios at various times after infusion. Expand
