Influence of Vitamin D on Vascular Function in Adolescents and Young Adults With Type 1 Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:14:34 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to study the role of low vitamin D levels on the health of blood vessels or vascular function in adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes.

Description

Vitamin D deficiency is known to be common in patients with type 1 diabetes. Studies in adults have shown that vitamin D deficiency is associated with cardiovascular events such as stroke, myocardial infarction and peripheral arterial disease. However, the impact of this deficiency on vascular health in adolescents with diabetes has not been examined. Furthermore given that endothelial dysfunction is reversible, early detection of this process may have therapeutic and prognostic implications in this population.

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 subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.

A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).

A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
