Klotho protein function among patients with type 1 diabetes.

Summary of "Klotho protein function among patients with type 1 diabetes."

The fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) and Klotho system play a very important role in the regulation of the human body metabolism. On the one hand, they promote longevity, and on the other hand they promote insulin resistance. Nowadays, accelerated aging in diabetes as the main consequence of chronic complications of the disease is postulated. Signalling pathways induced by insulin, insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), and their homologues play an important role in controlling the aging process. Because FGF23/Klotho system affects glucose metabolism and gene expression of antioxidant enzymes, changes in its concentration may be a marker of chronic complications of diabetes or a treatment option. Despite huge improvements in the treatment of diabetes, its chronic complications remain an important clinical problem. An interesting issue is the relationship between the concentration of FGF23/Klotho and management of the disease, duration, insulin resistance, and development of complications in type 1 diabetes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.

A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .

Conditions or pathological processes associated with the disease of diabetes mellitus. Due to the impaired control of BLOOD GLUCOSE level in diabetic patients, pathological processes develop in numerous tissues and organs including the EYE, the KIDNEY, the BLOOD VESSELS, and the NERVE TISSUE.
