Endocr J. 2019 Oct 16;: Authors: Hylmarova S, Stechova K, Pavlinkova G, Peknicova J, Macek M, Kvapil M Abstract Little is known about type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) impact on the male sexual and reproductive functions. We aim to evaluate the influence of T1DM on male sexual function, quality of sexual life, and sex hormone levels. A total of 57 male patients aged 18 to 50 years (mean = 33) with T1DM (duration mean = 15 years) had a medical examination and completed a set of questionnaires - International Index of Erectile Function-5 (IIEF-5), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and Sexual quality of life questionnaire male (SQoL-M). The prevalence of erectile dysfunction was 28.1% (IIEF-5 ≤21). Patients without diabetic nephropathy had better erectile function (p = 0.008). Subjects with better glycemic control (HbA1c

Several omics platforms currently are being used for biomarker discovery. Data integration from multiple platforms while simultaneously accounting for clinical variables is only beginning to be attempted. Kammer and colleagues were interested in identifying prognostic biomarkers for rapid progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in patients with type 2 diabetes. They used a novel Bayesian approach to analyze clinical, proteomic, metabolomic, and lipidomic data from patients whose CKD progressed rapidly or remained stable.

As many as 10% to 20% of patients undergoing kidney transplantation develop post-transplant diabetes mellitus, which is associated with increased mortality. Even borderline changes in glucose metabolism, so-called prediabetes, may involve a similar risk. A recent study by Porrini et  al. showed for the first time that such changes in glucose metabolism are in fact associated with future cardiovascular disease and death in kidney-transplanted patients. This commentary discusses the relevance and clinical implications of these new findings.
