BACKGROUND Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is one of the most prevalent complications of pregnancy and can cause adverse maternal and fetal outcomes. The maternal gut microbiota is involved in several metabolic functions, but it is not yet known its role in GDM physiopathology. This study aims to review the role of gut microbiota in pregnancies that evolved with GDM. METHODS Systematic search of the PubMed, Embase, and Scopus databases was performed to identify articles published until 18th ...

Abstract We examined whether paternal and maternal body mass indexes (BMI) were independently associated with obestatin and visfatin levels in adult offspring. This cross-sectional analysis included 124 women who participated in the Nutritionists’ Health Study (NutriHS) at baseline. Early life events, anthropometry, DXA-determined body composition and blood sample were obtained. Associations of parental BMI with outcomes (obestatin and visfatin) were tested by multiple linear regression, using m...

Introduction: Few studies addressed the role of neck circumference (NC) as a risk factor during overweight pregnancy. Objective: To evaluate the association of NC with GDM and adverse outcomes in overweight and obese women. Methods: This longitudinal study included 132 (BMI>25kg/m2) pregnant women. Standardized questionnaire and biochemical/physical evaluation were performed when they were admitted at GDM outpatient clinic (2018-2019): during the 1st to 3rd trimester (without and with DMG accord...

Based on the fetal origins of diseases hypothesis, adverse intrauterine environment - reflected by low birth weight (LBW) - has been linked to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes later in life. Whether β cell function reduction could be detected even in middle-aged adults is less investigated. We examined the association of LBW with β cell function and insulin sensitivity. This is a cross-sectional analysis of 2634 ELSA-Brasil participants aged between 34 and 59 years. Exclusion criteria were...

Objective: To compare components of glycemic and energy homeostasis in women with metabolically healthy normal weight (MHNW) and metabolically unhealthy (MUNW), metabolically unhealthy overweight/obese (MUO) and metabolically healthy (MHO) phenotypes. Methodology: Cross-sectional study with 104 women (18-45 years): 30 MHNW, 17 MUNW, 27 MHO, 30 MUO. Overweight was considered BMI ≥ 25 kg/m² and metabolic health without of changes in blood pressure, glycemic, lipemic levels and cardiovascular disea...

ABSTRACT The coronavirus disease 2019 (covid-19) pandemic has caused a public health emergency worldwide. Risk, severity and mortality of the disease have been associated with non-communicable chronic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus. Accumulated evidence has caused great concern in countries with high prevalence of this morbidity, such as Brazil. This text shows the picture of diabetes in Brazil, followed by epidemiological data and explanatory hypothesis for the association between diabetes...

Background Human body harbors ten times more bacteria than human cells, indicating that microbial communities should play a role for health and diseases. Changes in gut microbiota composition can alter gut barrier, lipopolysaccharides (LPS) translocation and trigger metabolic endotoxemia and insulin resistance. Akkermansia has been associated with a protective effect on the gut barrier by increasing mucus layer. In contrast, Escherichia is a gram-negative bacterium that contains LPS on your surf...

Materials and methods A sample of 998 individuals from the ELSA-Brazil (35-54 yrs.) without cardiovascular disease or diabetes was stratified according to E-selectin tertiles. Traditional risk factors, inflammatory markers and categories of coronary artery calcium (CAC) score were evaluated across the tertiles by ANOVA or chi-squared test. In linear regression models, associations of E-selectin levels with insulin resistance index, adjusted for age, sex and adiposity were tested.
