Hypoglycemia in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients during the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) has been reported; however, these patients have not been well-characterized. Few studies have examined whether hypoglycemia during the OGTT increases the risk of developing CF-related diabetes (CFRD). Objectives of this study were to describe the characteristics of CF patients with hypoglycemia during the OGTT and to determine the incidence and time to development of CFRD in those with hypoglycemia.

Due to the collapse of the price of genetic testing and the FDA’s gradual ease of the regulatory environment, direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing companies are booming. You can inquire your deoxyribonucleic acid about your ancestry, health risks, metabolism, and some start-ups even promise you to find true love or your kids’ talents. As the jungle of DTC companies is getting denser, more and more people ask me which genetic tests are worth the try. They love the possibility of getting access to their DNA but don’t know where to start. Here’s the DTC genetic testing kick-starter package! Naviga...

CFTR ameliorates high glucose-induced oxidative stress and inflammation by mediating the NF-κB and MAPK signaling pathways in endothelial cells. Int J Mol Med. 2018 Mar 07;: Authors: Fei Y, Sun L, Yuan C, Jiang M, Lou Q, Xu Y Abstract Diabetic cardiovascular diseases are characterized by progressive hyperglycemia, which results in excessive production of oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory cytokines. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is characterized by chronic inflammation due to mutations in CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). However, little information is available about the role of CFT...

DiscussionInterventions for dietā€treated CI require a focus on diet and weight, but may increase the risk for disordered eating. Future research is needed to elucidate the mechanisms that transform standard treatment practices into pathological eating, including characteristics and behaviors of the child, parents/care providers, family, and treatment providers.
