an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

 

Read our special collection of journal articles, published in 2021–2022, focused on diabetes! Curation of the collection was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

In Journal of the Endocrine Society, Alvarado and colleagues report results indicating that gestational weight gain does not cause the changes in glucose metabolism in women who develop gestational diabetes. Bergenstal et al. find that use of a flash glucose monitoring system reduces diabetes-related acute events and hospitalizations in patients with type 2 diabetes. Klein and coauthors describe in an Expert Endocrine Consult how inadequate carbohydrate input during the evening before an oral glucose tolerance test can cause healthy individuals to display apparent signs of early diabetes, a lesson that may be fading from memory because the test is now less often used than hitherto.

In JCEM, Ebekozien et al. report that Black Covid-19 patients with type 1 diabetes have a higher risk of developing diabetic ketoacidosis than similar White patients, even after adjusting for confounders. Along similar lines, Bancks and coauthors report finding racial and ethnic differences across subgroups of diabetes patients, with the subgroups differing in their risk for complications. Antonio-Villa and coauthors report that the prevalence of diabetes in the United States almost doubled between 1988 and 2018, with differences across sex, ethnicity, education, and age.

In Endocrinology, De Bem and coauthors describe their use of an endometrium-on-a-chip, microfluidics approach to investigate the effects of changes in glucose and insulin concentration on transcription and protein expression in uterine cells. Seshadri and Doucette discuss in a mini-review the influence of the beta cell circadian clock on various aspects of beta cell function, including control of insulin secretion capability. In another mini-review, Kalwat et al. discuss the beta cell’s response to secretory demands and adaptation to stress, noting the potential of therapeutics based on beta cell rest.

In Endocrine Reviews, Jais and Brüning discuss the role of the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus in the sensing of adiposity signals. Stocks and Zierath review the role of post-translational modifications in mediating the ability of exercise to combat type 2 diabetes by affecting glucose homeostasis and insulin sensitivity. And Howell and Booth consider the role of the built environment in the relationship between physical activity and diseases of obesity.
