MCAT Accommodations for Type 1 Diabetes?

Ideally my sugars will be stable the day of, they usually are, but should I be applying for medical accommodations in the event my sugar drops/spikes during the exam? What's the best way of navigating the MCAT as a type 1 diabetic? Thanks

Authors: Yahaya TO, Ufuoma SB Abstract Single gene mutations have been implicated in the pathogenesis of a form of diabetes mellitus (DM) known as the maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY). However, there are diverse opinions on the suspect genes and pathophysiology, necessitating the need to review and communicate the genes to raise public awareness. We used the Google search engine to retrieve relevant information from reputable sources such as PubMed and Google Scholar. We identified 14 classified MODY genes as well as three new and unclassified genes linked with MODY. These genes are fundamentally embedde...

Abstract Objective: Autoimmune conditions tend to cluster in subjects with Addison's disease (AD) and probably also among their relatives. The aim of the study was to estimate the frequency of the endocrine gland-specific autoantibodies in first-degree relatives of patients with AD. Methods: Autoantibodies were investigated in 113 family members using RIA and ELISA assays. The control group comprised 143 age-matched volunteers. Results: Autoimmune diseases were diagnosed in 38.1% relatives. Hashimoto's thyroiditis was found in 20.3%, Graves' disease in 8.0%, vitiligo and type 1 diabetes in 3.5%, whereas ...

ConclusionsOur study demonstrates that our adolescents with severe obesity carry a much higher CV risk than adolescents with T1D unless in bad metabolic control. Apart from lower sAGE levels, most of the variables considered to define CV risk were higher in the obese group than in the T1D group. Gender seems to have a significant impact on sAGE levels but not on IMT.

Conclusions/interpretationOur study identifies increased responsiveness to IFN-1 as a feature of both the NOD mouse model of autoimmune diabetes and human established type 1 diabetes. A stimulated IFN-1 gene signature may be a potential biomarker for type 1 diabetes and used to evaluate the effects of therapies targeting this pathway.Data availabilityMouse gene expression data are found in the gene expression omnibus (GEO) repository, accession GSE146452 ( Nanostring count data from the human experiments were deposited in the GEO repository, accession GSE146338 (www.ncb...

AbstractCeliac disease (CD) is an immune-mediated enteropathy triggered by dietary ingestion of gluten in genetically susceptible patients. CD is often diagnosed by a “case-finding” approach of symptomatic patients. In recent times, the diagnostic paradigm has shifted to investigate patients who may be asymptomatic, but are at high risk of developing CD due to shared genetic susceptibilities. These high-risk groups include first-degree relatives of CD patient s and patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus, autoimmune thyroid disease, Down’s syndrome, and Turner syndrome. Moreover, CD is often diagnosed as t...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo provide an update on the acute effects of glucose, insulin, and incretins on markers of bone turnover in those with and without diabetes.Recent FindingsBone resorption is suppressed acutely in response to glucose and insulin challenges in both healthy subjects and patients with diabetes. The suppression is stronger with oral glucose compared with intravenous delivery. Stronger responses with oral glucose may be related to incretin effects on insulin secretion or from a direct effect on bone turnover. Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-2 (GLP-2) infusion ...
