ConclusionThe CRSC and Steno tools evaluated and stratified the CVR of the same population with T1D, with there being divergence of the results. It was found that the CRSC tool classified the majority of the sample as high risk. Due to this result, the eligibility to use statins, which is one of the applications of these tools, showed great differences, with the Steno tool presenting less aggressive provisions regarding the prescription of statins in patients with type 1 DM.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewChildren and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) spend much of their waking time in the school environment. However, there is limited empirical understanding of the challenges youth face in managing their T1D at school. There is even less literature focused on potential interventions to improve health or psychological outcomes in youth with T1D in this milieu. This review seeks to summarize the recent literature on diabetes T1D management in the school setting, including recommendations for care, barriers, and targets for intervention.Recent FindingsT1D organizations recommend strong collaborati...

Type 1 diabetes islet cell autoantigen 512 (ICA512/IA-2) is a tyrosine phosphatase–like intrinsic membrane protein involved in the biogenesis and turnover of insulin secretory granules (SGs) in pancreatic islet β-cells. Whereas its membrane-proximal and cytoplasmic domains have been functionally and structurally characterized, the role of the ICA512 N-terminal segment named “regulated endocrine-specific protein 18 homology domain” (RESP18HD), which encompasses residues 35–131, remains largely unknown. Here, we show that ICA512 RESP18HD residues 91–131 encode for an intrinsically disordere...
