AbstractPurposeTo assess the plasma oxysterol species 7-ketocholesterol (7-Kchol) and cholestane-3 β,5α,6β-triol (chol-triol) as biomarkers of oxidative stress in type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM).MethodsIn total, 26 type 1 and 80 type 2 diabetes patients, along with 205 age- and gender-matched healthy controls, were included in this study. Oxysterols were quantified by liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry andN,N-dimethylglycine derivatization. Correlations between oxysterols and clinical/biochemical characteristics of the diabetes patients, and factors affecting 7-Kchol and ch...

Abstract Our aim was to review the data from the National Pregnancy in Diabetes (NPID) audit, and to identify the challenges and opportunities for improving pregnancy outcomes in women with diabetes. We reviewed three years of NPID data and relevant diabetes and obstetric literature, and found that there has been little change in pregnancy preparation or outcomes over the past 3 years, with substantial clinic‐to clinic variations in care. Women with Type 2 diabetes remain less likely to take 5 mg preconception folic acid (22.8% vs. 41.8%; P
