RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: Upper body fat has been associated with an unfavourable cardiometabolic risk. We aimed to investigate the associations between mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC), a novel indicator of upper body fat, and a wide spectrum of cardiometabolic risk profiles in Chinese population. DESIGN AND SETTING: Cross-sectional analyses were performed using data from a well-defined community in 2014, Shanghai, China. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 6287 Chinese adults (2310 men and 3977 women) aged 40 years or older. OUTCOME MEASURES: Multivariable logistic regression model was used to examine the associations of MUAC with cardiometabolic disorders including central obesity, diabetes, hypertension, hypertriglyceridaemia, low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and subclinical atherosclerosis. RESULTS: In the overall participants, after multivariable adjustment, each 1 SD (3.13 cm) increment in MUAC was positively associated with central obesity (OR 2.05; 95% CI 1.85 to 2.28), hypertension (OR 1.10; 95% CI 1.03 to 1.19) and low HDL cholesterol (OR 1.10; 95% CI 1.01 to 1.22). Multivariable-adjusted ORs for subclinical atherosclerosis were gradually increased across increasing quartiles of MUAC with the lowest quartile as reference (quartile 2: OR 1.31; 95% CI 1.09 to 1.58; quartile 3: OR 1.33; 95% CI 1.10 to 1.62; quartile 4: OR 1.45; 95% CI 1.16 to 1.80; p for trend=0.005). Similar but more prominent associations were observed among women than men. In addition, MUAC was significantly interacted with diabetes (p for interaction=0.04) and insulin resistance (p for interaction=0.01) on subclinical atherosclerosis. CONCLUSION: A greater MUAC was positively associated with higher risks of several cardiometabolic disorders and subclinical atherosclerosis in Chinese adults.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Epidemiological evidence on the association between elevated lipoprotein (a) (Lp (a)) with risk of stroke remains inconsistent. We aimed to investigate the association between serum Lp (a) level and the risk of stroke among middle-aged and elderly Chinese. METHODS: A community-based prospective cohort study of 8500 participants aged 40 years or older was conducted in Jiading district, Shanghai, China, in 2010. The incident strokes were documented at follow-up visit during 2014-2015. RESULTS: During a mean follow-up of 5.1 years, 444 incident cases of stroke occurred. The incidences of stroke were 4.44%, 5.14% and 6.14% from the lowest to the highest serum Lp (a) tertile, respectively. A significant association between serum Lp (a) tertile and the risk of incident stroke was observed (p for trend<0.05). Compared with individuals in the lowest tertile of serum Lp (a), the multivariable adjusted hazards ratio (HR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) for incident stroke in Lp (a) tertile 3 were 1.34 (1.06-1.70). CONCLUSIONS: Serum Lp (a) concentration was associated with increased risk of incident stroke in Chinese adults.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Comprehensive assessment of serum lipidomic aberrations before type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) onset has remained lacking in Han Chinese. We evaluated changes in lipid coregulation antecedent to T2DM and identified novel lipid predictors for T2DM in individuals with normal glucose regulation (NGR). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: In the discovery study, we tested 667 baseline serum lipids in subjects with incident diabetes and propensity score-matched control subjects (n = 200) from a prospective cohort comprising 3,821 Chinese adults with NGR. In the validation study, we tested 250 lipids in subjects with incident diabetes and matched control subjects (n = 724) from a pooled validation cohort of 14,651 individuals with NGR covering five geographical regions across China. Differential correlation network analyses revealed perturbed lipid coregulation antecedent to diabetes. The predictive value of a serum lipid panel independent of serum triglycerides and 2-h postload glucose was also evaluated. RESULTS: At the level of false-discovery rate <0.05, 38 lipids, including triacylglycerols (TAGs), lyso-phosphatidylinositols, phosphatidylcholines, polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)-plasmalogen phosphatidylethanolamines (PUFA-PEps), and cholesteryl esters, were significantly associated with T2DM risk in the discovery and validation cohorts. A preliminary study found most of the lipid predictors were also significantly associated with the risk of prediabetes. Differential correlation network analysis revealed that perturbations in intraclass (i.e., non-PUFA-TAG and PUFA-TAGs) and interclass (i.e., TAGs and PUFA-PEps) lipid coregulation preexisted before diabetes onset. Our lipid panel further improved prediction of incident diabetes over conventional clinical indices. CONCLUSIONS: These findings revealed novel changes in lipid coregulation existing before diabetes onset and expanded the current panel of serum lipid predictors for T2DM in normoglycemic Chinese individuals.

RESUMO

Importance: Whether optimal cardiovascular health metrics may counteract the risk of cardiovascular events among patients with prediabetes or diabetes is unclear. Objective: To investigate the associations of ideal cardiovascular health metrics (ICVHMs) with subsequent development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) among participants with prediabetes or diabetes as compared with participants with normal glucose regulation. Design, Setting, and Participants: The China Cardiometabolic Disease and Cancer Cohort Study was a nationwide, population-based, prospective cohort study of 20 communities from various geographic regions in China. The study included 111 765 participants who were free from CVD or cancer at baseline. Data were analyzed between 2011 and 2016. Exposures: Prediabetes and diabetes were defined according to the American Diabetes Association 2010 criteria. Seven ICVHMs were adapted from the American Heart Association recommendations. Main Outcomes and Measures: The composite of incident fatal or nonfatal CVD, including cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke, and hospitalized or treated heart failure. Results: Of the 111 765 participants, 24 881 (22.3%) had normal glucose regulation, 61 024 (54.6%) had prediabetes, and 25 860 (23.1%) had diabetes. Mean (SD) age ranged from 52.9 (8.6) years to 59.4 (8.7) years. Compared with participants with normal glucose regulation, among participants with prediabetes, the multivariable-adjusted hazard ratio for CVD was 1.34 (95% CI, 1.16-1.55) for participants who had 1 ICVHM or less and 0.57 (95% CI, 0.43-0.75) for participants who had at least 5 ICVHMs; among participants with diabetes, the hazard ratios for CVD were 2.05 (95% CI, 1.76-2.38) and 0.80 (95% CI, 0.56-1.15) for participants who had 1 ICVHM or less and at least 5 ICVHMs, respectively. Such pattern of association between ICVHM and CVD was more prominent for participants younger than 55 years (prediabetes and at least 5 ICVHMs: hazard ratio [HR], 0.32; 95% CI, 0.16-0.63; 1 ICVHM or less: HR, 1.58, 95% CI, 1.13-2.21; diabetes and at least 5 ICVHMs: HR, 0.99; 95% CI, 0.44-2.26; 1 ICVHM or less: HR, 2.46; 95% CI, 1.71-3.54; compared with normal glucose regulation) than for participants 65 years or older (prediabetes and at least 5 ICVHMs: HR, 0.80; 95% CI, 0.50-1.26; 1 ICVHM or less: HR, 1.01; 95% CI, 0.79-1.31; diabetes and at least 5 ICVHMs: HR, 0.79; 95% CI, 0.46-1.35; 1 ICVHM or less: HR, 1.73; 95% CI, 1.36-2.22, compared with normal glucose regulation; P values for interaction ≤.02). Additionally, the hazard ratio for CVD per additional ICVHM was 0.82 (95% CI, 0.79-0.86) among participants with prediabetes and was 0.85 (95% CI, 0.80-0.89) among participants with diabetes. Conclusions and Relevance: Participants with prediabetes or diabetes who had 5 or more ICVHMs exhibited lower or no significant excess CVD risks compared with the participants with normal glucose regulation.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Unhealthy diet is one of the important risk factors of diabetes, which is one of the major public health problems in China. The Internet tools provide large-scale passively collected data that show people's dietary preferences and their relationship with diabetes risk. METHODS: 212 341 708 individuals' dietary preference labels were created based on Internet data from online search and shopping software. Metabolic data obtained from the 2010 China Noncommunicable Disease Surveillance, which had 98 658 participants, was used to estimate the relation between dietary preferences geographical distribution and diabetes risk. RESULTS: Chinese dietary preferences had different geographical distribution, which is related to the local climate and consumption level. Fried food preference proportion distribution was significantly positively correlated with diabetes prevalence, hypertension prevalence and body mass index (BMI). Similarly, grilled food preference proportion distribution had significantly positive correlation with the prevalence of diabetes and hypertension. In contrast, spicy food preference proportion distribution was negatively correlated with diabetes prevalence. Sweet food preference proportion distribution was positively related to diabetes prevalence. Using dietary preferences data to predict regional prevalence of diabetes, hypertension and BMI, the average values of error (95% CI) between the three paired predicted and observed values were 9.8% (6.9%-12.7%), 7.5% (5.0%-10.0%) and 1.6% (1.2%-2.0%), respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Fried food, grilled food, and sweet food preferences were positively related to diabetes risk whereas spicy food preference was negatively correlated with diabetes risk. Dietary preferences based on passively collected Internet data could be used to predict regional prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, and BMI and showed good value for public health monitoring.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: This study investigated the association between birth weight and diabetes in a Chinese population, and the effects of body mass index (BMI) and lifestyle factors in later life on this association. METHODS: Data from 49 118 participants aged ≥40 years with recalled birth weight from the Risk Evaluation of cAncers in Chinese diabeTic Individuals: a lONgitudinal (REACTION) study, a nationwide population-based cohort, were used. Diabetes diagnosis was based on oral glucose tolerance tests and HbA1c measurements. Logistic regression models were used to evaluate the association of birth weight and risk of diabetes in later life. RESULTS: Increased risk of diabetes was associated with lower or higher birth weight. Compared with individuals with a birth weight of 2500 to 3499 g, the odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) of diabetes for individuals with a birth weight of <2500, between 3500 and 3999, and ≥4000 g were 1.28 (1.11-1.47), 1.11 (1.04-1.19), and 1.20 (1.07-1.34), respectively. Significant associations were prominent in participants with a current BMI ≥24 kg/m2 , but not detected in those with a normal BMI (OR 1.20 [95% CI 0.96-1.49], 1.11 [95% CI 0.98-1.25], and 1.10 [95% CI 0.89-1.37], respectively). Moreover, there was no increased risk of diabetes in individuals with a low birth weight but with healthy dietary habits (OR 0.94; 95% CI 0.68-1.29) or ideal physical activity (OR 1.41; 95% CI 0.97-2.04). CONCLUSIONS: A U-shaped association was observed between birth weight and the risk of diabetes. Healthy lifestyles (healthy dietary habits or ideal physical activity) may eliminate the negative effects of low birth weight in the development of diabetes, but not the effect of high birth weight.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Uncertainty remains regarding the predictive value of various glycemic measures as they relate to the risk of diabetes and its complications. Using the cutoffs recommended by the American Diabetes Association's 2010 criteria, we determined the associations of fasting plasma glucose (FPG), 2-h postload glucose (2h-PG), and HbA1c with the outcomes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Baseline medical history, FPG, 2h-PG, and HbA1c were obtained from a population-based cohort of 193,846 adults aged ≥40 years in China during 2011-2012. A follow-up visit was conducted during 2014-2016 in order to assess incident diabetes, cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer, and mortality. RESULTS: We documented 8,063 cases of diabetes, 3,014 CVD-related events, 1,624 cases of cancer, and 2,409 deaths during up to 5 years of follow-up. Multivariable-adjusted risk ratios (95% CIs) of diabetes associated with prediabetes based on FPG of 100-125 mg/dL, 2h-PG of 140-199 mg/dL, or HbA1c of 5.7-6.4% (39-47 mmol/mol) were 1.60 (1.43-1.79), 2.72 (2.43-3.04), and 1.49 (1.36-1.62), respectively. Restricted cubic spline analyses suggested J-shaped associations of FPG, 2h-PG, and HbA1c levels with CVD, cancer, and mortality. Multivariable-adjusted hazard ratios (95% CIs) associated with untreated diabetes based on FPG ≥126 mg/dL, 2h-PG ≥200 mg/dL, or HbA1c ≥6.5% (48 mmol/mol) were 1.18 (1.05-1.33), 1.31 (1.18-1.45), and 1.20 (1.07-1.34) for CVD; 1.10 (0.92-1.32), 1.44 (1.25-1.67), and 1.08 (0.92-1.28) for cancer; and 1.37 (1.20-1.57), 1.57 (1.41-1.76), and 1.33 (1.17-1.52) for mortality, respectively. 2h-PG remained significantly associated with outcomes in models including FPG and HbA1c as spline terms. Furthermore, 2h-PG significantly improved the ability of the C statistic to predict diabetes, CVD, and mortality. CONCLUSIONS: 2h-PG remains independently predictive of outcomes in models including FPG and HbA1c. Therefore, in addition to FPG and HbA1c, routine testing of 2h-PG should be considered in order to better assess the risks of outcomes.

RESUMO

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Bisphenol A (BPA) has been shown to be potentially associated with type 2 diabetes; however, there is little evidence associating BPA exposure with glucose metabolic outcomes prior to diabetes onset. We aimed to examine BPA exposure in relation to glucose homeostasis among non-diabetic individuals. METHODS: This longitudinal cohort study comprised 2336 Chinese adults aged 40 years or above (62.8% women) and free of diabetes at baseline in 2009, followed for 4 years. Urinary BPA and glucose metabolic traits including fasting plasma glucose (FPG), 2 h post-load plasma glucose, fasting serum insulin, HOMA-IR and HOMA-B were measured at baseline and follow-up. Repeated-measures analysis was performed to evaluate associations of urinary BPA concentration with markers of glucose homeostasis. RESULTS: After full adjustment for confounders including BMI, each tenfold increase in urinary BPA concentrations was associated with a 3.39% increase in FPG (95% CI 2.24%, 4.55%) and an 11.6% decrease in HOMA-B (95% CI -15.8%, -7.18%) in women. The inverse association between urinary BPA and HOMA-B was more prominent among overweight or obese individuals (change -13.7%; 95% CI -19.3%, -7.61%) compared with those who were of normal weight (change -6.74%; 95% CI -13.2%, 0.20%) (pinteraction = 0.07). Moreover, the ORs of fasting hyperglycaemia and beta cell dysfunction corresponding to a tenfold increase in urinary BPA concentrations were 1.37 (95% CI 1.10, 1.72) and 1.30 (95% CI 1.02, 1.65) in women, respectively. No significant associations existed between urinary BPA and glucose metabolic markers in men. CONCLUSIONS/INTERPRETATION: Our findings suggest that exposure to BPA was independently associated with impaired glucose homeostasis before the development of diabetes in middle-aged and elderly women.

RESUMO

Previous observational studies supported a positive association of glycated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level with serum triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). However, the causal relationship between HbA1c and either one of them was unclear in the East Asians. We performed a Mendelian Randomization (MR) analysis in a community-based study sample in Shanghai, China (n = 11,935). To clarify the cause-and-effect relationships of HbA1c with the four interested lipids, an Expanded HbA1c genetic risk score (GRS) with 17 HbA1c-related common variants and a Conservative score by excluding 11 variants were built and adopted as the Instrumental Variables (IVs), respectively. The Expanded HbA1c-GRS was associated with 0.19 unit increment in log-TG (P = 0.009), 0.42 mmol/L TC (P = 0.01), and 0.33 mmol/L LDL-C (P = 0.01); while the Conservative HbA1c-GRS was associated with 0.22 unit in log-TG (P = 0.03), 0.60 mmol/L TC (P = 0.01), and 0.51 mmol/L LDL-C (P = 0.007). No causal relationship was detected for HDL-C. Sensitivity analysis supported the above findings. In conclusions, MR analysis supports a causal role of increased HbA1c level in increment of circulating TG, TC, and LDL-C in a Chinese population.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: This study examined whether resting heart rate (RHR) was associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and the 10-year predicted risk of cardiovascular disease in a Chinese population. METHODS: The associations of RHR with MetS and 10-year risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASCVD) was examined in a cross-sectional study conducted in Shanghai, China (n = 9486). RESULTS: Compared with individuals in the lowest RHR quintile (≤71 b.p.m.), those in the highest quintile (≥91 b.p.m.) had a higher prevalence of MetS (21.2% vs 32.6%, respectively; P < 0.001). Logistic regression analyses showed that the multivariate-adjusted odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) for MetS was 1.13 (1.08-1.18) for each 10-b.p.m. increment of RHR (P < 0.0001). Furthermore, RHR was strongly associated with the prevalence of hypertension, high blood glucose, and dyslipidemia, but not with central obesity. A stronger association of RHR with MetS was observed among individuals aged <65 years, male, with a body mass index <24 kg/m2 , without diabetes, hypertension, abnormal lipids, and insulin resistance than among their counterparts (P < 0.05 for all). A significantly higher 10-year risk for ASCVD was observed with each 10-b.p.m. increment in RHR in both men and women (ORs [95% CIs] 1.20 [1.07-1.33] and 1.28 [1.17-1.39], respectively; Ptrend = 0.002 and < 0.0001, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: In this study, RHR was associated with a higher prevalence of MetS and elevated 10-year predicted risk of ASCVD in both Chinese men and women. Whether RHR may serve as an indicator for MetS among relatively healthy individuals requires further investigation.

RESUMO

A traditional immobilized pH gradient (IPG) has a high stability for isoelectric focusing (IEF) but suffers from time-consuming rehydration, focusing and staining-imaging as well as complex performance. To address these issues, an IEF system with an array of 24 IPG columns (10 mm × 600 µm × 50 µm) and dynamic scanning imaging (DSI) was firstly designed for protein focusing. Moreover, two IPG columns (pH 4-9 and pH 6.7-7.7 of 10 mm in length) were firstly synthesized for IEF. A series of experiments were carried out based on the IEF array. In contrast to a traditional IPG IEF with more than 10 h rehydration, 5-14 h IEF and ca 10 h stain-imaging, the IEF array had the following merits: 25 min rehydration for sample loading, 4 min IEF, and 2 min dynamics scanning of 24 columns, well addressing the issues of traditional IEF. Furthermore, the IEF array had fair sensitivity (LOD of 60 ng), good recovery (95%), and high stability (1.02% RSD for intra-day and 2.16% for inter-day). Finally, the developed array was successfully used for separation and determination of HbA1c (a key biomarker for diabetes diagnosis) in blood samples. All these results indicated the applicability of the developed IEF array to diabetes diagnosis.

RESUMO

Objective: To assess the association between famine exposure in early life and osteoporosis in adulthood. Methods: A total of 2,292 participants born between 1955 and 1965 in Fujian Province were selected; after 3 years, 1,378 participants attended a follow-up research visit. Calcaneus bone mineral density and bone quality were measured by quantitative ultrasound. The T-score was used to assess bone mineral density, and the parameters quantitative ultrasound index (QUI), speed of sound (SOS), and broadband ultrasonic attenuation (BUA) were used to assess bone quality. A T-score threshold of -1.8 was defined as osteoporosis, and a possible vertebral fracture was considered as a prospective height loss of 0.8 inches or more. Results: Compared with the nonexposed cohort, risks of osteoporosis for fetal-, early childhood, and mid-childhood famine-exposed cohorts in postmenopausal women were adjusted odds ratio (OR), 3.741 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.233, 11.44) versus OR 2.894 (95% CI, 0.997, 8.571) versus OR 4.699 (95% CI, 1.622, 13.612) by logistic regression but not significant in men. Moreover, the fetal-exposed cohort had a weak negative relation with QUI (ß, -5.07 [-10.226, 0.127]) and BUA (ß, -4.321 [-0.88, 0.238]). The early- and mid-childhood-exposed cohorts had significantly lower QUI (ß, -7.085 [-11.799, -2.372] versus ß, -10.845 [-15.68, -6.01]) and BUA (ß, -6.381 [-10.515, -2.246] versus ß, -8.573 [-12.815, -4.331]) than the nonexposed cohort by linear regression. None of the famine-exposed cohorts had a significant relationship with SOS. Conclusion: Famine exposure during early life is associated with higher risk of osteoporosis in adulthood, which is most obvious in postmenopausal women. Furthermore, famine exposure in early life has adverse effects on bone quality. Abbreviations: BMD = bone mineral density; BUA = broadband ultrasonic attenuation; CI = confidence interval; OR = odds ratio; QUI = quantitative ultrasound index; QUS = quantitative ultrasound; SOS = speed of sound.

RESUMO

Protein acetylation has a crucial role in energy metabolism. Here we performed the first large-scale profiling of acetylome in rat islets, showing that almost all enzymes in core metabolic pathways related to insulin secretion were acetylated. Label-free quantitative acetylome of islets in response to high glucose revealed hyperacetylation of enzymes involved in fatty acid ß-oxidation (FAO), including trifunctional enzyme subunit alpha (ECHA). Acetylation decreased the protein stability of ECHA and its ability to promote FAO. The overexpression of SIRT3, a major mitochondrial deacetylase, prevented the degradation of ECHA via decreasing its acetylation level in ß-cells. SIRT3 expression was upregulated in rat islets upon exposure to low glucose or fasting. SIRT3 overexpression in islets markedly decreased palmitate-potentiated insulin secretion, whereas islets from SIRT3 knockout mice secreted more insulin, with an opposite action on FAO. ECHA overexpression partially reversed SIRT3 deficiency-elicited insulin hypersecretion. Our study highlights the potential role of protein acetylation in insulin secretion.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Serum apolipoprotein (apo) B has been associated with an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. However, findings on the association between apoB and the risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) are inconsistent. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between serum apoB and MetS risk in Chinese population. METHODS: A baseline survey was conducted in a population-based cohort of 10 340 adults aged ≥40 years in Shanghai, China, in 2010. A follow-up visit was conducted to assess incident diabetes in 2015. RESULTS: At baseline, 2794 of 10 340 participants (27.02%) had MetS. Serum apoB was significantly associated with an increased risk of prevalent MetS. Multivariable-adjusted odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for quintiles 2-5 compared with quintile 1 (reference) were 1.29 (1.02-1.63), 1.47 (1.18-1.84), 1.32 (1.06-1.65), and 2.02 (1.61-2.51), respectively (Ptrend < 0.05). During an average of 5.1 years follow-up, 4627 individuals without MetS at baseline showed a significant association between apoB and the risk of incident MetS. Multivariable-adjusted risk ratios (95% CIs) for subjects in apoB quintiles 2-5 compared with the reference were 1.43 (1.13-1.82), 1.57 (1.25-1.98), 1.74 (1.38-2.18), and 2.07 (1.66-2.58), respectively (Ptrend < 0.05). Stratified analysis suggested that the above association was much stronger among normal weight individuals than in those who were overweight or obese. CONCLUSION: These cross-sectional and prospective studies provide evidence that serum apoB is associated with existing MetS and is a possible predictor of the risk of MetS, especially among normal weight individuals.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of early life exposure to famine, as endured during 1959 to 1961 in China, on reproductive aging in adult women. METHODS: Between 2011 and 2012, 2,868 women born around the Chinese famine period (1956-1964) were enrolled in this study from three communities in China. Age at natural menopause was obtained retrospectively from a structured questionnaire. The associations of early life famine exposure with reproductive aging during adulthood were estimated, with adjustment of socioeconomic status, lifestyle factors, and body mass index. RESULTS: Women exposed to prenatal famine had a higher risk of early menopause (ie, natural menopause <45 years, odds ratio: 1.59, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.07, 2.36), and a nonsignificant trend of higher risk of premature ovarian failure (ie, natural menopause <40 y, odds ratio: 1.94, 95% CI: 0.93, 4.00), compared to unexposed women. Exposure to famine during childhood was not significantly associated with reproductive aging. In a secondary analysis focusing on the fetal exposure, prenatal famine exposure was associated with a higher risk of premature ovarian failure (odds ratio: 2.07, 95% CI: 1.08, 3.87), and a nonsignificant trend of higher risk of early menopause (odds ratio: 1.37, 95% CI: 0.98, 1.91), compared to those unexposed to prenatal famine. CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that fetal exposure to famine was associated with an increased risk of early menopause. Such findings provided evidence in favor of the thrifty phenotype theory in reproductive aging and helped better understand the etiology of early menopause.

RESUMO

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) has been associated with a high prevalence of depression.We aimed to determine the causal relation by performing a Mendelian randomization (MR) study using 34 T2D risk genetic variants validated in East Asians as the instrumental variable (IV). An MR analysis was performed involving 11 506 participants from a large longitudinal study. The T2D genetic risk score (GRS) was built using the 34 typical T2D common variants. We used T2D_GRS as the IV estimator and performed inverse-variance weighted (IVW) and Egger MR analysis. The T2D_GRS was found to be associated with depression with an OR of 1.21 (95% CI: 1.07-1.37) after adjustments for age, sex, body mass index, current smoking and drinking, physical activity, education, and marital status. Using T2D_GRS as the IV, we similarly found a causal relationship between genetically determined T2D and depression (OR: 1.84, 95% CI: 1.25-2.70). Though we found no association between the combined effect of the genetic IVs for T2D and depression with EggerMR(OR: 0.95, 95%CI: 0.42-2.14), we found an association for T2D and depression with IVW (OR: 1.75, 95% CI: 1.31-2.46) after excluding pleiotropic SNPs. Overall, the MR analyses provide evidence inferring a potential causal relationship between T2D and depression.

RESUMO

The incidence of obesity has been rapidly increasing, and this condition has become a major public health threat. A substantial shift in environmental factors and lifestyle, such as unhealthy diet, is among the major driving forces of the global obesity pandemic. Longitudinal studies and randomized intervention trials have shown that genetic susceptibility to obesity may interact with dietary factors in relation to the body mass index and risk of obesity. This review summarized data from recent longitudinal studies and intervention studies on variations and diets and discussed the challenges and future prospects related to this area and public health implications.

RESUMO

AIMS: We investigated associations of carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and carotid plaque with ankle-brachial index (ABI) and toe-brachial index (TBI) in Chinese adults. METHODS: A cross-sectional analysis was performed in 6688 participants from a well-defined Chinese community. CIMT and carotid plaque was measured with a high-resolution B-mode tomographic ultrasound system. Low ABI was defined as ABI ≤ 0.90. Low TBI was defined as TBI ≤ 0.60. Carotid plaques were classified as normal, homogeneous or heterogeneous according to morphology. RESULTS: After adjusting for age, sex and body mass index, each 0.10 mm CIMT increase was associated with 0.0123 unit decrease in TBI (P = 0.004) and 0.0063 in ABI (P = 0.04) in patients with diabetes. After further adjustments for waist circumference, smoking and drinking habits, hypertension, lipids and hemoglobin A1c, the associations between CIMT and TBI remained significant; while those with ABI were disappeared. Meanwhile, each 0.10 mm increment of CIMT or rank of carotid plaque morphology was associated with a risk of presence of low TBI (CIMT: odds ratio: 1.21, 95% confidence interval: 1.05-1.40; carotid plaque morphology: 1.45, 1.01-2.08) in patients with diabetes after adjustments. However, no associations were found between CIMT or carotid plaque morphology and TBI or ABI in non-diabetic participants. CONCLUSIONS: CIMT and carotid plaque morphology were significantly associated with TBI in patients with diabetes.
