Hyperinsulinism in infancy: from basic science to clinical disease. (1/62)

Ion channelopathies have now been described in many well-characterized cell types including neurons, myocytes, epithelial cells, and endocrine cells. However, in only a few cases has the relationship between altered ion channel function, cell biology, and clinical disease been defined. Hyperinsulinism in infancy (HI) is a rare, potentially lethal condition of the newborn and early childhood. The causes of HI are varied and numerous, but in almost all cases they share a common target protein, the ATP-sensitive K+ channel. From gene defects in ion channel subunits to defects in beta-cell metabolism and anaplerosis, this review describes the relationship between pathogenesis and clinical medicine. Until recently, HI was generally considered an orphan disease, but as parallel defects in ion channels, enzymes, and metabolic pathways also give rise to diabetes and impaired insulin release, the HI paradigm has wider implications for more common disorders of the endocrine pancreas and the molecular physiology of ion transport.  (+info)

Characterization of hyperinsulinism in infancy assessed with PET and 18F-fluoro-L-DOPA. (2/62)

Hyperinsulinism (HI) of infancy is a neuroendocrine disease secondary to either focal adenomatous hyperplasia or a diffuse abnormality of insulin secretion of the pancreas. HI with focal lesions can revert by selective surgical resection in contrast to the diffuse form, which requires subtotal pancreatectomy when resistant to medical treatment. Neuroendocrine diseases are a heterogeneous group of entities with the ability to take up amine precursors and to convert them into biogenic amines. Therefore, the aim of this study was (a) to evaluate the use of PET with 18F-fluoro-L-dihydroxyphenylalanine (18F-fluoro-L-DOPA) and (b) to distinguish between focal and diffuse HI. METHODS: Fifteen patients (11 boys, 4 girls) with neonatal HI were enrolled in this study. All patients fasted for at least 6 h before the PET examination and their medication was discontinued for at least 72 h. The examination was performed under light sedation (pentobarbital associated with or without chloral). The dynamic acquisition started 45-65 min after the injection of 18F-fluoro-L-DOPA (4.0 MBq/kg weight). Four or 6 scans of 5 min each (2 or 3 steps according to the height of the patient) were acquired from the neck to the upper legs. RESULTS: An abnormal focal pancreatic uptake of 18F-fluoro-L-DOPA was observed in 5 patients, whereas a diffuse uptake of the radiotracer was observed in the pancreatic area of the other patients. All patients with focal radiotracer uptake and also 4 of 10 patients with pancreatic diffuse radiotracer accumulation, unresponsive to medical treatment, underwent surgery. The histopathologic results confirmed the PET findings--that is, focal versus diffuse HI. CONCLUSION: The results of this study suggest that 18F-fluoro-L-DOPA could be an accurate noninvasive technique to distinguish between focal and diffuse forms of HI.  (+info)

Low temperature completely rescues the function of two misfolded K ATP channel disease-mutants. (3/62)

The pancreatic ATP-sensitive potassium channels comprise two subunits: SUR1 and Kir6.2. Two SUR1 mutations, A116P and V187D, reduce channel activity causing persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy. We investigated whether these mutations cause temperature sensitive misfolding. We show that the processing defect of these mutants is temperature sensitive and these two mutations disrupt the association between SUR1 and Kir6.2 by causing misfolding in SUR1 at 37 degrees C but can be rescued at 18 degrees C. Extensive electrophysiological characterization of these mutants indicated that low temperature largely, if not completely, corrects the folding defect of these two SUR1 mutants observed at 37 degrees C.  (+info)

A novel KCNJ11 mutation associated with congenital hyperinsulinism reduces the intrinsic open probability of beta-cell ATP-sensitive potassium channels. (4/62)

The beta-cell ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channel controls insulin secretion by linking glucose metabolism to membrane excitability. Loss of KATP channel function due to mutations in ABCC8 or KCNJ11, genes that encode the sulfonylurea receptor 1 or the inward rectifier Kir6.2 subunit of the channel, is a major cause of congenital hyperinsulinism. Here, we report identification of a novel KCNJ11 mutation associated with the disease that renders a missense mutation, F55L, in the Kir6.2 protein. Mutant channels reconstituted in COS cells exhibited a wild-type-like surface expression level and normal sensitivity to ATP, MgADP, and diazoxide. However, the intrinsic open probability of the mutant channel was greatly reduced, by approximately 10-fold. This low open probability defect could be reversed by application of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphates or oleoyl-CoA to the cytoplasmic face of the channel, indicating that reduced channel response to membrane phospholipids and/or long chain acyl-CoAs underlies the low intrinsic open probability in the mutant. Our findings reveal a novel molecular mechanism for loss of KATP channel function and congenital hyperinsulinism and support the importance of phospholipids and/or long chain acyl-CoAs in setting the physiological activity of beta-cell KATP channels. The F55L mutation is located in the slide helix of Kir6.2. Several permanent neonatal diabetes-associated mutations found in the same structure have the opposite effect of increasing intrinsic channel open probability. Our results also highlight the critical role of the Kir6.2 slide helix in determining the intrinsic open probability of KATP channels.  (+info)

Molecular and immunohistochemical analyses of the focal form of congenital hyperinsulinism. (5/62)

Congenital hyperinsulinism is a rare pancreatic endocrine cell disorder that has been categorized histologically into diffuse and focal forms. In focal hyperinsulinism, the pancreas contains a focus of endocrine cell adenomatous hyperplasia, and the patients have been reported to possess paternally inherited mutations of the ABCC8 and KCNJ11 genes, which encode subunits of an ATP-sensitive potassium channel (K(ATP)). In addition, the hyperplastic endocrine cells show loss of maternal 11p15, where imprinted genes such as p57(kip2) reside. In order to evaluate whether all cases of focal hyperinsulinism are caused by this mechanism, 56 pancreatectomy specimens with focal hyperinsulinism were tested for the loss of maternal allele by two methods: immunohistochemistry for p57(kip2) (n=56) and microsatellite marker analysis (n=27). Additionally, 49 patients were analyzed for K(ATP) mutations. Out of 56 focal lesions, 48 demonstrated clear loss of p57(kip2) expression by immunohistochemistry. The other eight lesions similarly showed no nuclear labeling, but the available tissue was not ideal for definitive interpretation. Five of these eight patients had paternal K(ATP) mutations, of which four demonstrated loss of maternal 11p15 within the lesion by microsatellite marker analysis. All of the other three without a paternal K(ATP) mutation showed loss of maternal 11p15. K(ATP) mutation analysis identified 32/49 cases with paternal mutations. There were seven patients with nonmaternal mutations whose paternal DNA material was not available, and one patient with a mutation that was not present in either parent's DNA. These eight patients showed either loss of p57(kip2) expression or loss of maternal 11p15 region by microsatellite marker analysis, as did the remaining nine patients with no identifiable K(ATP) coding region mutations. The combined results from the immunohistochemical and molecular methods indicate that maternal 11p15 loss together with paternal K(ATP) mutation is the predominant causative mechanism of focal hyperinsulinism.  (+info)

Noninvasive diagnosis of focal hyperinsulinism of infancy with [18F]-DOPA positron emission tomography. (6/62)

Congenital hyperinsulinism of infancy (CHI) is characterized by severe hypoglycemia due to dysregulated insulin secretion, associated with either focal or diffuse pathology of the endocrine pancreas. The focal condition is caused by a paternally inherited mutation in one of the genes encoding the subunits of the beta-cell ATP-sensitive potassium channel (SUR1/ABCC8 or Kir6.2/KCNJ11) and somatic loss of maternal 11p15 alleles within the affected area. Until now, preoperative diagnostics have relied on technically demanding and invasive catheterization techniques. We evaluated the utility of fluorine-18 l-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine ([(18)F]-DOPA) positron emission tomography (PET) to identify focal pancreatic lesions in 14 CHI patients, 11 of which carried mutations in the ABCC8 gene (age 1-42 months). To reduce bias in PET image interpretation, quantitative means for evaluation of pancreatic [(18)F]-DOPA uptake were established. Five patients had a visually apparent focal accumulation of [(18)F]-DOPA and standardized uptake value (SUV) >50% higher (mean 1.8-fold) than the maximum SUV of the unaffected part of the pancreas. When these patients were operated on, a focus of 4-5 x 5-8 mm matching with the PET scan was found, and all were normoglycemic after resection of the focus. The remaining nine patients had diffuse accumulation of [(18)F]-DOPA in the pancreas (SUV ratio <1.5). Diffuse histology was verified in four of these, and pancreatic catheterization was consistent with diffuse pathology in four cases. In conclusion, [(18)F]-DOPA PET is a promising noninvasive method for the identification and localization of the focal form of CHI.  (+info)

Molecular mechanisms of neonatal hyperinsulinism. (7/62)

Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI), characterized by profound hypoglycaemia related to inappropriate insulin secretion, may be associated histologically with either diffuse insulin hypersecretion or focal adenomatous hyperplasia, which share a similar clinical presentation, but result from different molecular mechanisms. Whereas diffuse CHI is of autosomal recessive, or less frequently of autosomal dominant, inheritance, focal CHI is sporadic. The most common mechanism underlying CHI is dysfunction of the pancreatic ATP-sensitive potassium channel (K(+)(ATP)). The two subunits of the K(+)(ATP) channel are encoded by the sulfonylurea receptor gene (SUR1 or ABCC8) and the inward-rectifying potassium channel gene (KIR6.2 or KCNJ11), both located in the 11p15.1 region. Germ-line, paternally inherited, mutations of the SUR1 or KIR6.2 genes, together with somatic maternal haplo-insufficiency for 11p15.5, were shown to result in focal CHI. Diffuse CHI results from germ-line mutations in the SUR1 or KIR6.2 genes, but also from mutations in several other genes, namely glutamate dehydrogenase (with associated hyperammonaemia), glucokinase, short-chain L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase, and insulin receptor gene. Hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia may be observed in several overlapping syndromes, such as Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS), Perlman syndrome, and, more rarely, Sotos syndrome. Mosaic genome-wide paternal isodisomy has recently been reported in patients with clinical signs of BWS and CHI. The primary causes of CHI are genetically heterogeneous and have not yet been completely unveiled. However, secondary causes of hyperinsulinism have to be considered such as fatty acid oxidation deficiency, congenital disorders of glycosylation and factitious hypoglycaemia secondary to Munchausen by proxy syndrome.  (+info)

Macrosomia and hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia in patients with heterozygous mutations in the HNF4A gene. (8/62)

BACKGROUND: Macrosomia is associated with considerable neonatal and maternal morbidity. Factors that predict macrosomia are poorly understood. The increased rate of macrosomia in the offspring of pregnant women with diabetes and in congenital hyperinsulinaemia is mediated by increased foetal insulin secretion. We assessed the in utero and neonatal role of two key regulators of pancreatic insulin secretion by studying birthweight and the incidence of neonatal hypoglycaemia in patients with heterozygous mutations in the maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY) genes HNF4A (encoding HNF-4alpha) and HNF1A/TCF1 (encoding HNF-1alpha), and the effect of pancreatic deletion of Hnf4a on foetal and neonatal insulin secretion in mice. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We examined birthweight and hypoglycaemia in 108 patients from families with diabetes due to HNF4A mutations, and 134 patients from families with HNF1A mutations. Birthweight was increased by a median of 790 g in HNF4A-mutation carriers compared to non-mutation family members (p < 0.001); 56% (30/54) of HNF4A-mutation carriers were macrosomic compared with 13% (7/54) of non-mutation family members (p < 0.001). Transient hypoglycaemia was reported in 8/54 infants with heterozygous HNF4A mutations, but was reported in none of 54 non-mutation carriers (p = 0.003). There was documented hyperinsulinaemia in three cases. Birthweight and prevalence of neonatal hypoglycaemia were not increased in HNF1A-mutation carriers. Mice with pancreatic beta-cell deletion of Hnf4a had hyperinsulinaemia in utero and hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia at birth. CONCLUSIONS: HNF4A mutations are associated with a considerable increase in birthweight and macrosomia, and are a novel cause of neonatal hypoglycaemia. This study establishes a key role for HNF4A in determining foetal birthweight, and uncovers an unanticipated feature of the natural history of HNF4A-deficient diabetes, with hyperinsulinaemia at birth evolving to decreased insulin secretion and diabetes later in life.  (+info)

TY - CHAP. T1 - Hyperinsulinism of infancy. T2 - Localization of focal forms. AU - Hardy, Olga T.. AU - Stanley, Charles A.. PY - 2006. Y1 - 2006. N2 - Congenital hyperinsulinism is the most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in infants and children (1). Infants with severe forms of the disorder (formerly termed nesidioblastosis) present with hypoglycemia in the newborn period and are at high risk of seizures, permanent brain damage, and retardation. Infants with congenital hyperinsulinism may have either focal or diffuse abnormalities of the pancreatic β cells. In cases with diffuse disease, an underlying defect in the β-cell adenosoine triphosphate (ATP)-dependent potassium channel may be present, caused by recessive loss of function mutations of the two genes encoding the KATP channel, SUR1 or Kir6.2 (1,2). These mutations may also cause focal hyperinsulinism in which there is an area of β-cell adenomatosis due to loss of heterozygosity for the maternal 11p region and expression of a ...
Background: Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI), a condition characterised by dysregulation of insulin secretion from the pancreatic beta cells, remains one of the most common causes of hyperinsulinemic, hypoketotic hypoglycaemia in the newborn period. Mutations in ABCC8 and KCNJ11 constitute the majority of genetic forms of CHI. Biallelic inactivating mutations (homozygous or compound heterozygous) in ABCC8 and KCNJ11 are known to result in severe, diffuse, diaxoxide unresponsive hypoglycaemia. We report a neonate with CHI due to compound heterozygous mutations in ABCC8 and completely responsive to diazoxide.. Case: A term macrosomic male baby, birth weight 4.81 kg, born to non-consanguineous parents, presented on day 1 of life with severe and persistent hypoglycaemia. Apart from polyhydramnios during the antenatal period, the pregnancy was otherwise uneventful. Normoglycaemia (blood glucose,3.5mmol/L) was achieved with a peak glucose infusion rate (GIR) of 20mg/kg/minute. The hypoglycaemia screen ...
Background: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a rare heterogeneous disease. Genetic testing is crucial as identifying the underlying aetiology can guide clinical management.. Objective and hypotheses: We investigated the clinical characteristics and genetics of 20 Ukrainian patients with CHI.. Methods: Routine clinical and laboratory investigations were performed on 20 patients with hypoglycemia and unsuppressed C-peptide and p-insulin, diagnostic for CHI. Patients were sub grouped according to whether the hypoglycemia was persistent (n=12) or transient (n=8). KCNJ11 and ABCC8 were sequenced in all patients. Targeted next generation of all the known CHI genes was undertaken in 2 patients with persistent CHI. In one case features of Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome prompted methylation and dosage analysis of chromosome 11p15.5. 18F-DOPA PET-CT was performed on 9 cases (75%) with persistent CHI.. Results: Those with persistent CHI were diagnosed earlier compared to those was transient disease (22.5 ...
β cell failure in type 2 diabetes (T2D) is associated with hyperglycemia, but the mechanisms are not fully understood. Congenital hyperinsulinism caused by glucokinase mutations (GCK-CHI) is associated with β cell replication and apoptosis. Here, we show that genetic activation of β cell glucokinase, initially triggering replication, causes apoptosis associated with DNA double-strand breaks and activation of the tumor suppressor p53. ATP-sensitive potassium channels (KATP channels) and calcineurin mediate this toxic effect. Toxicity of long-term glucokinase overactivity was confirmed by finding late-onset diabetes in older members of a GCK-CHI family. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) mimetic treatment or p53 deletion rescues β cells from glucokinase-induced death, but only GLP-1 analog rescues β cell function. DNA damage and p53 activity in T2D suggest shared mechanisms of β cell failure in hyperglycemia and CHI. Our results reveal membrane depolarization via KATP channels, calcineurin signaling,

In June 2010, our family welcomed our long-awaited third child, Alexandra. But on the second day after she was born, Sasha had to go to intensive care - her blood sugar level had fallen drastically. Doctors diagnosed our daughter with an extremely rare genetic disease - organic hyperinsulinism, a disorder of the pancreas. Sasha had a complicated operation. She recovered quickly, all her indicators normalized. But a year later, she had an epileptic seizure with convulsions and loss of consciousness. We had our daughter examined at different hospitals, but doctors could not understand why it was happening. The attacks still go on to this day - about once every six months. They are hard on Sasha, she has problems breathing. My daughter is growing normally for her age, she is perseverant, obedient. We wrote to the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia childrens hospital in Philadelphia. Doctors there told us that congenital hyperinsulinism can cause seizures, and that they know how to treat children ...

HH is the commonest cause of persistent and recurrent hypoglycaemia during the neonatal and infancy periods. Insulin inhibits gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis and stimulates uptake of glucose in muscles and adipocytes, leading to hypoglycaemia. Moreover, insulin inhibits lipolysis and thereby ketone body synthesis. In effect, the brain of the baby with CHI is deprived of the primary (glucose) and secondary (ketones) energy sources due to inappropriately elevated insulin levels.. CHI is a genetically heterogeneous disease characterised by dysregulated insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells (Fig. 1C). In the face of hypoglycaemia, infants with CHI have inappropriately elevated serum insulin, low ketone bodies, low fatty acids and show a glycaemic response to glucagon. Infants with CHI typically need a GIR of more than 8 mg/kg per min to maintain normoglycaemia (3). The incidence of sporadic forms of CHI is estimated at 1 in 40 000 live births, but in familial forms, it may be as high as 1 in ...

For children with congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI), low blood sugar is caused by cells in the pancreas that release too much insulin. Some children with CHI have these cells throughout their pancreas; others have them located in specific areas of the pancreas. Children who have them located in specific areas of the pancreas may be cured with surgery. F-DOPA is a radioactive drug that may go to these very cells. F-DOPA can also be used for positron emission tomography (or PET), an imaging technique used in nuclear medicine departments. In this study, researchers will test the possibility of using PET with F-DOPA in the diagnosis of children with hyperinsulinism ...
We report on 2 infants with PHHI for whom focal lesions of the pancreas were diagnosed during laparoscopy and laparoscopically enucleated. Both children were cured at the age of 1 month. One year after surgery, both patients are well and normoglycemic. Functional data from patient tissue analyses and genotyping in both cases revealed that PHHI was a consequence of defects in β-cell KATP channels. For both children, mutations in the SUR1 gene were found; the mutations were of paternal origin in both cases, as reported for focal hyperinsulinism. The focal origins of PHHI were confirmed with histologic diagnoses.. Focal adenomatous hyperplasia as a cause of PHHI was observed first by Kloppel et al7 in 1975 and was noted by Goossens et al8 in 1989 in a large study of 24 pancreata from surgically treated patients with PHHI. Since those observations, focal lesions as a cause of intractable hyperinsulinism have been consistently reported. The presumed incidence may be as high as 30% to 60% of cases of ...

Loomis is also on a mission to raise awareness about hyperinsulinism (HI), a rare disease that causes low blood sugar. His 3-year-old son was diagnosed with the life-threatening condition in 2015, and Loomis dedicates Basics opening track, Sugar Baby, to Congenital Hyperinsulinism International (www.congenitalhi.org), an organization that heads research on the disease, educates doctors and hospitals, and supports families affected by the disease. They call HI kids sugar babies, so I wanted to write a song in appreciation for all they do for families all over the world, Loomis says. ...
Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is an important cause of severe hypoglycaemia in infancy. To correct hypoglycaemia, high concentrations of dextrose are often required through a central venous catheter (CVC) with consequent risk of thrombosis. We describe a series of six cases of CHI due to varying aetiologies from our centre requiring CVC for the management of hypoglycaemia, who developed thrombosis in association with CVC. We subsequently analysed the incidence and risk factors for CVC-associated thrombosis, as well as the outcomes of enoxaparin prophylaxis. The six cases occurred over a 3-year period; we identified an additional 27 patients with CHI who required CVC insertion during this period (n = 33 total), and a separate cohort of patients with CHI and CVC who received enoxaparin prophylaxis (n = 7). The incidence of CVC-associated thrombosis was 18% (6/33) over the 3 years, a rate of 4.2 thromboses/1000 CVC days. There was no difference in the frequency of genetic mutations or focal CHI ...
Our brother-sister team is so excited to participate in this year s Million Dollar Bike Ride and we are grateful for anything you can donate to our cause! A message from Ben: Every day of my life, since shortly after birth, my blood sugar has always had to be monitored because of congenital hyperinsulinism (HI). As a baby my body made far too much insulin and the only treatment at the time was removing my pancreas. I was so lucky to get great care and have this operation to remove my pancreas at the Children s Hospital of Philadelphia. This care and the surgery saved my brain and allowed me to live a healthy, wonderful life. However as a result of having my pancreas removed, I now have diabetes and take insulin through a pump. Since I was first diagnosed and treated as a baby, there have been improvements in care because of more knowledge and technology, but there needs to be more research so babies born with HI don t develop diabetes when they get older. As a college student, I have
Moreover, while most of the organs in the human body have the ability to store glucose by increasing their mass, the brain, prisoner of the cranial bones, cannot count on these variations in volume.. Unable to store its food, it depends on sugar supplied in real-time by the rest of the body. This distribution of energy is controlled by the liver.. Pierre Maechler, professor at the Faculty of Medicine at UNIGE, and his team therefore decided to verify if glutamate was indeed an energy source for the brain.. To do so, the researchers analyzed the role of the glutamate dehydrogenase enzyme in the brain. In mutant form, this enzyme, encoded by the Glud1 gene, is responsible for a congenital hyperinsulinism syndrome, a severe disease affecting at the same time the endocrine pancreas, the liver and the brain.. Individuals affected by this syndrome suffer from intellectual disability and have a high risk of epilepsy. ...
Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Sneid on lupus low blood sugar: This is often a complication of diabetes therapy, and blood glucose management, but certain tumors, like insulinomas, among others, can cause this, and many of those patients have a family history of those tumors. Some others also have naturally low blood sugar, and that can be due to genetics. Congenital hyperinsulinism might be such a case, as might inborn errors of carbohydrate metabolism.

Primary hyperinsulinism is a rare but important cause of hypoglycemia in infants and children. It is the most common cause of neonatal hypoglycemia that persists beyond the first few hours of life.
This case is being reported because of the apparent rarity of the condition and the fairly typical clinical course exhibited. A review of the literature up to the time this paper was written revealed only 131 similar cases reported in man, seven of which had either lymph node or liver metastasis or both. This patient presented the usual clinical picture associated with hyperinsulinism.2 It is to be regretted that a biological assay for insulin was not made of the metastatic nodules in the liver, as has been shown by Powers and Wilder to be conclusive proof of the origin of ...
Josie will be 8 weeks old tomorrow and today she was diagnosed with hyperinsulinism. Shes had a hard time regulating her blood sugar and shes not gaining weight as quickly as the doctors would like. We have to do more testing to determine if there is a generic cause for it or if its related to the IUGR. They think it can be managed with medication but this diagnosis has bought us at least another 5 days in the NICU and when she comes home Ill have to check her blood sugar 2-3 times a day. Im just feeling so depressed and defeated at this point. Shes doing all the major things (breathing, eating, etc) but we just cant get past this blood sugar thing. Has anybody else experienced this with their IUGR baby? Even if you havent dealt with this, I could use some positivity right now. Shes so amazing and I feel like I just keep failing her
A summary of the clinical details and the results from PET scan, catheterization, and surgery for the 14 patients is presented in Table 1. Based on PVS, focal CHI was suspected in cases 1-3. Preoperative imaging by [18F]-DOPA PET was consistent with a focal form of disease in these three cases, and the suggested focus on PET matched with the location of high-insulin secretion detected by PVS (Tables 1 and 2). Encouraged by these positive findings, two additional patients (9 and 13) underwent successful pancreatic surgery based on focal lesions seen on PET only. All of these five focal cases were confirmed by histology obtained during surgery, and the localization of the hyperinsulinemic focus by the PET scan corresponded to the actual localization. In two patients, the focus was located in the head, in one patient in the neck, and in two patients in the body of the pancreas. All of these patients were normoglycemic, with a normal overnight fasting tolerance, without medications, and on normal ...
There are many studies that show that important and interesting differences exist in the patterns of diabetes mellitus, not only between countries but from group to group in the same country. Such big differences suggest the causes may be environmental, most of which are dietary and, therefore, preventable. In these dietary factors it is perhaps the pattern of eating, the presence or absence of cellulose, roughage and vegetable fibre, milk and fermented milk products such as yoghurt, which are of crucial importance. There is a quicker rise of blood glucose in the case of non-masticatory-roughage-poor dietary regimens as compared with masticatory milk, milk-products and roughage-rich regimens on account of faster gastric emptying in the former and slower gastric emptying in the latter. The hyperchlorhydria caused by fibre-poor non-masticatory meals produces an instantaneous secretin-release which results in hyperinsulinism. Such sucrose-induced hyperinsulinism leads to formation of insulin ...

Per the USDA nutrition database, here are the lipid numbers on 100g of raw pork bacon vs 100g of olive oil.. Bacon:. 14.993g saturated. 20.047 monounsaturated. 4.821g polyunsaturated. Olive oil:. 13.808g saturated. 72.961g monounsaturated. 10.523g polyunsaturated. You can work out for yourself whether those are truly equivalent amounts, given that the bacon also has some protein in it and just a bare smidgen of carb (not even 1g).. The single largest source of nitrates in the human diet is vegetables. It seems that nitrates turn into nitric oxide in the human body. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator; this probably explains the reduction in blood pressure experienced by some people who add more vegetables to their diets.. Its interesting that people who adopt low-carb diets-simply a low-carb diet, with no consideration of how Paleo it is-oftentimes also experience reduction in blood pressure. Some of that is probably from the extreme reduction in digestible carb intake; hyperinsulinism appears to ...

For children with congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI), low blood sugar is caused by cells in the pancreas that release too much insulin. Some children with CHI have these cells throughout their pancreas (called diffuse disease); others have them located in specific areas of the pancreas (called focal disease). Children who have focal disease located in specific areas of the pancreas may be cured with surgery. F-DOPA is a radioactive drug that is picked up by these cells and used for positron emission tomography (or PET), an imaging technique used in nuclear medicine departments. In this study, researchers will validate the efficacy and safety of using PET/CT with F-DOPA in the pre-operative localization of focal disease in children with hyperinsulinism ...
Congenital hyperinsulinism of infancy (CHI) is a rare disorder characterized by severe hypoglycemia due to inappropriate insulin secretion. The genetic causes of CHI have been found in genes regulating insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells; recessive inactivating mutations in the ABCC8 and KCNJ11 genes represent the most common events. Despite the advances in understanding the molecular pathogenesis of CHI, specific genetic determinants in about 50 % of the CHI patients remain unknown, suggesting additional locus heterogeneity. In order to search for novel loci contributing to the pathogenesis of CHI, we combined a family-based association study, using the transmission disequilibrium test on 17 CHI patients lacking mutations in ABCC8/KCNJ11, with a whole-exome sequencing analysis performed on 10 probands. This strategy allowed the identification of the potential causative mutations in genes implicated in the regulation of insulin secretion such as transmembrane proteins (CACNA1A, KCNH6, ...

Objective: Mutations in the human HNF4A gene encoding the hepatocyte nuclear factor 4 alpha (HNF-4α) are known to cause maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY), which is characterized by autosomal dominant inheritance and impaired glucose-stimulated insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells. HNF-4α has a key role in regulating the multiple transcriptional factor networks in the islet. Recently heterozygous mutations in the HNF4A gene were reported to cause transient hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia associated with macrosomia.. Research Design and Methods: Three infants presented with macrosomia and severe hypoglycaemia with a positive family history of MODY. The hypoglycaemia was confirmed to be due to hyperinsulinism and all three patients required diazoxide therapy to maintain normoglycaemia. Two of the three infants are still requiring diazoxide therapy at 8 and 18 months while one of them had resolution of hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia at 32 months of age.. Results: Sequencing of the ...

A drug with hyperglycemic and antihypertensive action via peripheral vasodilatation. Indicated orally (2 to 3 daily doses) in the treatment of unresponsive hyperglycemia by hyperinsulinism and intravenously in hypertensive crises. Its use is authorized in the neonatal and infant period. Since the last update we have not found any published data on its excretion in breast milk. According to the limited pharmacokinetic data available (Pfizer 2017, Merck 2015), its high plasma protein binding could impede transfer to breastmilk, but its prolonged half-life, which would facilitate it, makes it prudent that, until more information about this drug is published in relation to breastfeeding, safer known alternatives may be preferable (Schaefer 2007 p685), especially during the neonatal period and in case of prematurity. To minimize risks of exposure, it would be necessary to wait 5 days after the last dose to restart breastfeeding. Meanwhile, express and discard breastmilk regularly to maintain
The earliest recognition of pancreatic cancer has been attributed to the 18th-century Italian scientist Giovanni Battista Morgagni, the historical father of modern-day anatomic pathology, who claimed to have traced several cases of cancer in the pancreas. Many 18th and 19th-century physicians were skeptical about the existence of the disease, given the similar appearance of pancreatitis. Some case reports were published in the 1820s and 1830s, and a genuine histopathologic diagnosis was eventually recorded by the American clinician Jacob Mendes Da Costa, who also doubted the reliability of Morgagnis interpretations. By the start of the 20th century, cancer of the head of the pancreas had become a well-established diagnosis.[101] Regarding the recognition of PanNETs, the possibility of cancer of the islet cells was initially suggested in 1888. The first case of hyperinsulinism due to a tumor of this type was reported in 1927. Recognition of a non-insulin-secreting type of PanNET is generally ...

Management of type 2 diabetes focuses on lifestyle interventions, lowering other cardiovascular risk factors, and maintaining blood glucose levels in the normal range.[25] Self-monitoring of blood glucose for people with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes may be used in combination with education,[82] although the benefit of self-monitoring in those not using multi-dose insulin is questionable.[25] In those who do not want to measure blood levels, measuring urine levels may be done.[82] Managing other cardiovascular risk factors, such as hypertension, high cholesterol, and microalbuminuria, improves a person's life expectancy.[25] Decreasing the systolic blood pressure to less than 140 mmHg is associated with a lower risk of death and better outcomes.[83] Intensive blood pressure management (less than 130/80 mmHg) as opposed to standard blood pressure management (less than 140-160 mmHg systolic to 85-100 mmHg diastolic) results in a slight decrease in stroke risk but no effect on overall risk of ...
This test measures the changes in body weight, urine output, and urine composition when fluids are withheld to induce dehydration. The body's normal response to dehydration is to conserve water by concentrating the urine. Those with DI continue to urinate large amounts of dilute urine in spite of water deprivation. In primary polydipsia, the urine osmolality should increase and stabilize at above 280 Osm/kg with fluid restriction, while a stabilization at a lower level indicates diabetes insipidus.[10] Stabilization in this test means, more specifically, when the increase in urine osmolality is less than 30 Osm/kg per hour for at least three hours.[10] Sometimes measuring blood levels of ADH toward the end of this test is also necessary, but is more time consuming to perform.[10] To distinguish between the main forms, desmopressin stimulation is also used; desmopressin can be taken by injection, a nasal spray, or a tablet. While taking desmopressin, a patient should drink fluids or water only ...
The goals of treatment are to slow the progression of kidney damage and control related complications. Management of diabetic nephropathy currently centers over four main areas: Cardiovascular risk reduction, glycemic control, blood pressure control as well as inhibition of the RAAS system.[citation needed] Cardiovascular risk reduction: Patients with diabetes mellitus are at significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease, which is also an independent risk factor for kidney failure. Therefore, it is important to aggressively manage cardiovascular risk factors in patients diagnosed with DM in general and DN specifically. The main components of managing cardiovascular disease is with tobacco cessation, lipid-lowering therapies (eg, statins) as well as regular exercise and healthy eating.[32] In patients with kidney disease, atorvastatin is preferred over other statins as it does not require dose-adjustment based on GFR.[33] Glycemic control: Multiple studies have found a positive effect of ...

The first priority in suspected or confirmed pituitary apoplexy is stabilization of the circulatory system. Cortisol deficiency can cause severe low blood pressure.[1][6] Depending on the severity of the illness, admission to a high dependency unit (HDU) may be required.[1] Treatment for acute adrenal insufficiency requires the administration of intravenous saline or dextrose solution; volumes of over two liters may be required in an adult.[6] This is followed by the administration of hydrocortisone, which is pharmaceutical grade cortisol, intravenously or into a muscle.[4][6] The drug dexamethasone has similar properties,[6] but its use is not recommended unless it is required to reduce swelling in the brain around the area of hemorrhage.[1] Some are well enough not to require immediate cortisol replacement; in this case, blood levels of cortisol are determined at 9:00 AM (as cortisol levels vary over the day). A level below 550 nmol/l indicates a need for replacement.[1] The decision on ...

Injections of insulin - either via subcutaneous injection or insulin pump - are necessary for those living with type 1 diabetes because it cannot be treated by diet and exercise alone.[56] Insulin dosage is adjusted taking into account food intake, blood glucose levels and physical activity. Untreated type 1 diabetes can commonly lead to diabetic ketoacidosis which is a diabetic coma which can be fatal if untreated.[57] Diabetic ketoacidosis can cause cerebral edema (accumulation of liquid in the brain). This is a life-threatening issue and children are at a higher risk for cerebral edema than adults, causing ketoacidosis to be the most common cause of death in pediatric diabetes.[58] Treatment of diabetes focuses on lowering blood sugar or glucose (BG) to the near normal range, approximately 80-140 mg/dl (4.4-7.8 mmol/l).[59] The ultimate goal of normalizing BG is to avoid long-term complications that affect the nervous system (e.g. peripheral neuropathy leading to pain and/or loss of feeling ...

... , also known as toxic diffuse goiter, is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid.[1] It frequently results in and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.[4] It also often results in an enlarged thyroid.[1] Signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism may include irritability, muscle weakness, sleeping problems, a fast heartbeat, poor tolerance of heat, diarrhea and unintentional weight loss.[1] Other symptoms may include thickening of the skin on the shins, known as pretibial myxedema, and eye bulging, a condition caused by Graves' ophthalmopathy.[1] About 25 to 80% of people with the condition develop eye problems.[1][3] The exact cause is unclear; however, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.[2] A person is more likely to be affected if they have a family member with the disease.[1] If one twin is affected, a 30% chance exists that the other twin will also have the disease.[5] The onset of disease may be triggered by physical or ...
In endocrinology, medical emergencies include diabetic ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state, hypoglycemic coma, acute adrenocortical insufficiency, phaeochromocytoma crisis, hypercalcemic crisis, thyroid storm, myxoedema coma and pituitary apoplexy.[3]. Emergencies arising from decompensated pheochromocytomas or parathyroid adenomas are sometimes referred for emergency resection when aggressive medical therapies fail to control the patient's state, however the surgical risks are significant, especially blood pressure lability and the possibility of cardiovascular collapse after resection (due to a brutal drop in respectively catecholamines and calcium, which must be compensated with gradual normalization).[4][5] It remains debated when emergency surgery is appropriate as opposed to urgent or elective surgery after continued attempts to stabilize the patient, notably in view of newer and more efficient medications and protocols.[6][7][8]. ...
Longer nerve fibers are affected to a greater degree than shorter ones because nerve conduction velocity is slowed in proportion to a nerve's length. In this syndrome, decreased sensation and loss of reflexes occurs first in the toes on each foot, then extends upward. It is usually described as a glove-stocking distribution of numbness, sensory loss, dysesthesia and night time pain. The pain can feel like burning, pricking sensation, achy or dull. A pins and needles sensation is common. Loss of proprioception, the sense of where a limb is in space, is affected early. These patients cannot feel when they are stepping on a foreign body, like a splinter, or when they are developing a callus from an ill-fitting shoe. Consequently, they are at risk of developing ulcers and infections on the feet and legs, which can lead to amputation. Similarly, these patients can get multiple fractures of the knee, ankle or foot, and develop a Charcot joint. Loss of motor function results in dorsiflexion, ...

... type 1 (MEN1) is a rare hereditary endocrine cancer syndrome characterized primarily by tumors of the parathyroid glands (95% of cases), endocrine gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) tract (30-80% of cases), and anterior pituitary (15-90% of cases).[17] Other endocrine and non-endocrine neoplasms including adrenocortical and thyroid tumors, visceral and cutaneous lipomas, meningiomas, facial angiofibromas and collagenomas, and thymic, gastric, and bronchial carcinoids also occur. The phenotype of MEN1 is broad, and over 20 different combinations of endocrine and non-endocrine manifestations have been described. MEN1 should be suspected in patients with an endocrinopathy of two of the three characteristic affected organs, or with an endocrinopathy of one of these organs plus a first-degree relative affected by MEN1 syndrome. MEN1 patients usually have a family history of MEN1. Inheritance is autosomal dominant; any affected parent has a 50% chance to transmit the disease to ...

... (diabetic kidney disease) (DN)[1] is the chronic loss of kidney function occurring in those with diabetes mellitus. It is a serious complication, affecting around one-quarter of adult diabetics in the United States. It usually is slowly progressive over years. [2] Pathophysiologic abnormalities in DN begin with long-standing poorly controlled blood glucose levels. This is followed by multiple changes in the filtration units of the kidneys, the nephrons. (There are normally about 3/4-1 1/2 million nephrons in each adult kidney).[3] Initially, there is constriction of the efferent arterioles and dilation of afferent arterioles, with resulting glomerular capillary hypertension and hyperfiltration; this gradually changes to hypofiltration over time.[4] Concurrently, there are changes within the glomerulus itself: these include a thickening of the basement membrane, a widening of the slit membranes of the podocytes, an increase in the number of mesangial cells, and an increase in ...

Systematic treatment aims to prevent irreversible damage to the brain. Intensive medical procedures include continual central venous glucose intake (, 8-25mg/kg*min) and glucagon infusions in order to release the body´s own glucose reserves. Other available medications are diazoxide (brand name: Proglicem) and somatostatin. A carbohydrate-rich diet suffices in some cases to attain stable blood glucose above 3.0 mmol/l, i.e. 55 mg/dl. Focal form CHI is present in about 40% of affected infants. A lesion confined to an area usually smaller than 1 cm is the cause of the most severe persistent hypoglycemias. The child can be cured permanently if this focus is properly detected and removed. Success in operating on the focal form depends on good team work between the nuclear medicine specialist/radiologist, pathologists and surgeons. Sonography is also of value for intraoperative tissue differentiation. ...
