Article
Background and objectives: Experts hypothesized increased weight gain in children associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, potentially due to closures of schools and recreational facilities with consequent reduction of physical activity and dietary changes. Our objective was to evaluate whether the rate of change of child BMI increased during the CO...

Importance: Earlier pubertal onset may be associated with an increased risk of chronic diseases. However, the extent to which growth in the first 5 years of life-an important developmental life stage that lays the foundation for later health outcomes-is associated with pubertal onset remains understudied. Objective: To assess whether changes in...
Article
Objective Incidence of youth‐onset diabetes in India has not been well described. Comparison of incidence, across diabetes registries, has the potential to inform hypotheses for risk factors. We sought to compare the incidence of diabetes in the U.S.‐based registry of youth onset diabetes (SEARCH) to the Registry of Diabetes with Young Age at Onset...
Article
Objective: To compare treatment regimens and glycosylated haemoglobin (A1c) levels in type 1 (T1D) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) using diabetes registries from two countries - U.S. SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth (SEARCH) and Indian Registry of youth onset diabetes in India (YDR). Methods: The SEARCH and YDR data were harmonized to the structure and te...
Article
Background: Over the last decades, diabetes in youth has increased in both India and the U.S., along with the burden of long-term complications and healthcare costs. However, there are limited standardized population-based data in contemporary youth cohorts for comparison of clinical and demographic characteristics of diabetes for both type 1 (T1D...
Article
Background: There is significant global variation in the prevalence of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) at diagnosis among youth with type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, data for youth with type 2 diabetes (T2D) are limited, even in developed countries. We compared the prevalence of DKA at diagnosis among individuals with T1D and T2D from the SEARCH for Di...
Article
Objective: To examine associations of maternal gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) with offspring cardiovascular biomarkers from late childhood through adolescence. Methods: We used mixed effects linear regression models to examine associations of maternal GDM (n = 92 cases of 597) with average offspring levels of serum lipids (total cholesterol...

Aims/hypothesis We previously showed that intrauterine exposure to gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) increases selected markers of adiposity in pre-pubertal adolescents. In the present study, we examined these associations in adolescence, and explored whether they are strengthened as the participants transition through puberty. Methods Data from...
Article
Background Sex differences in body composition are appreciated throughout the lifespan with probable contributions from sex steroids: testosterone and estrogen. The purpose of this longitudinal observational study was to determine if sex differences in body composition emerge during the first months of life in healthy infants, corresponding to the...
Article
Background: Obesity prevalence is higher among rural populations than urban, including youth. Reduced physical activity levels are associated with childhood obesity. It could be assumed that the obesity disparity between rural and urban children is attributable, in part, to differences in physical activity levels; however, previous research quanti...
Article
The purpose of the present study was to assess the association between setting and attaining goals and indicators of health behavior change (psychological general well-being index, self-efficacy, and health locus of control) among young American Indian mothers. A total of 60 women were randomized to either intervention or control. At the end of the...
Article
The We RISE Study aimed to support young American Indian mothers on a tribal reservation by addressing social determinants of health at an individual and community-wide level. To address community-based barriers, the study developed the Tribal Resource Guide, a comprehensive list of available resources that was created through partnerships with com...
Article
Objective: To examine the associations of in utero exposure to maternal diabetes with surrogate measures of offspring pubertal timing (age at peak height velocity [APHV]) and speed of pubertal growth (peak height velocity [PHV]). Study design: Data from 77 exposed and 340 unexposed youth followed from age 2 to 19 years (51% non-Hispanic white, 5...
Article
Aims: To examine the associations of intrauterine exposure to maternal diabetes and obesity with offspring insulin resistance, β-cell function and oral disposition index in a longitudinal observational study of ethnically diverse offspring. Methods: A total of 445 offspring who were exposed (n=81) or not exposed (n=364) to maternal diabetes in u...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is a critical diabetes outcome, yet differences between youth and parent-proxy ratings can make interpretation difficult. This study aims to explore potential differences between self- and parent-reports of Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL) scores from youth with type 1 (T1D) or type 2 dia...

Objectives: The aim of this cross-sectional study was to assess the vitamin D status and muscle function in children with NF1 compared with their unaffected siblings. Methods: NF1 children between 5 and 18 years of age and who had at least one unaffected sibling were identified. Serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), calcium, ino...

Understanding the landscape-level determinants of West Nile virus (WNV) can aid in mapping high-risk areas and enhance disease control and prevention efforts. This study analyzed the spatial patterns of human WNV cases in three areas in South Dakota during 2003-2007 and investigated the influences of land cover, hydrology, soils, irrigation, and el...
Article
Cross-sectional associations for lean mass (LM) and fat mass (FM) with bone may not reflect longitudinal associations. Cross-sectional and longitudinal associations of LM and FM with radial bone measurements in children were compared. We conducted a longitudinal study on 370 (232 females) children, 8-18 yr of age. LM and FM were measured by dual-en...

Geocoding, the process of assigning each case a set of coordinates that closely approximates its true location, is an important component of spatial epidemiological studies. The failure to accurately geocode cases adversely affects the validity and strength of conclusions drawn from the analysis. We investigated whether there were differences among...
Article
We previously reported greater than average aBMD in adult Hutterites; however, it is unknown whether higher aBMD occurs at younger ages. We examined Hutterite children to test the hypotheses that aBMD Z-scores in younger (<15 years) Hutterite children would be similar to reference data; but greater in older children after they enter the adult workf...
