The purpose of this study was to compare the lipid profile and the prevalence of lipid abnormalities in youth with and without type 1 diabetes and explore the role of glycemic control on the hypothesized altered lipid profile in youth with type 1 diabetes.
We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of 512 youth with type 1 diabetes (mean duration 4.22 years) and 188 healthy control subjects aged 10-22 years in Colorado and South Carolina. SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth (SEARCH) participants with type 1 diabetes and healthy control subjects recruited from primary care offices in the same geographic regions were invited to attend a research visit. Fasting lipid profiles were compared between youth with type 1 diabetes (stratified according to categories of optimal [A1C <7.5%] and suboptimal [A1C >or=7.5%] glycemic control) and healthy nondiabetic youth, using multiple linear and logistic regression.
Youth with type 1 diabetes and optimal A1C had lipid concentrations that were similar (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and LDL particle size) or even less atherogenic (HDL cholesterol, non-HDL cholesterol, triglyceride, and triglyceride-to-HDL cholesterol ratio) than those observed in nondiabetic youth, whereas youth with suboptimal glycemic control had elevated standard lipid levels (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and non-HDL cholesterol). Youth with type 1 diabetes also had significantly elevated apolipoprotein B levels and more small, dense LDL particles than nondiabetic youth, regardless of glycemic control.
Youth with type 1 diabetes have abnormal lipid levels and atherogenic changes in lipoprotein composition, even after a relatively short disease duration. As in adults, glycemic control is an important mediator of these abnormalities.

    • "Deranged lipids have been reported amongst adolescents and youth in the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study[1]. Although data on the influence of blood glucose control on development of atherosclerosis is conflicting, there is increasing evidence of an association between the two2345. This study was conducted to i) compare lipid parameters between diabetic children and controls; ii) determine factors influencing lipid parameters in diabetic children; and iii) examine effect of lowering of glycosylated hemoglobin on lipids in diabetic children at one year.

    ABSTRACT: Objectives To compare lipid parameters between diabetics and controls and to study association between metabolic control and lipid profile. Methods Lipid profile and HbA1c were measured (n=80, 39 boys) in diabetic children [age 10.7(3.4) y] and 54 controls, tests repeated after 1 year (in 45 diabetics). Results Diabetic children had higher mean (SD) LDL-C [95.3(27.7) vs 84.5(26.4) mg/dL], lower HDL-C [48.2 (13.1) vs 53.1(11.9) mg/dl]. Moderate physical activity (P=0.014) protected against high LDL-C levels. HbA1c (P=0.00) predicted total and LDL-C levels. At 1year, 63% showed reduced LDL-C with improving HbA1c; 72% showed increased LDL-C with deteriorated HbA1c. Conclusion Improving metabolic control is cardinal to reduce cardiometabolic risk; physical activity is beneficial.

    • "This result is in concordance with Muchacka-Bianga et al. (2006) and Kantoosh et al. (2002) who found that lipid disorders in children with T1DM may be present regardless of their metabolic con- trol. 14,22 On the contrary, Teles and Forne´s (2012) and Guy et al. (2009) found that poorer (inadequate) glycemic control is related to higher serum lipids levels.. 19,21 Ladeia et al. (2006) and Krantz et al. (2004) found significant correlations between glycemic control and lipids. "

    ABSTRACT: Diabetes is associated with a high risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The classic “diabetic dyslipidemia” is mostly described as hypertriglyceridemia and low levels of HDL-C. Elevated LDL-C is an established risk factor for CVD.

The hypercholesterolemia that occurs in the Apoe À/À mice following STZ administration has been considered a shortcoming in this mouse model of human diabetic cardiovascular disease (Renard and Van Obberghen 2006; Hsueh et al. 2007; Kanter et al. 2007; Ramasamy and Goldberg 2010) and, in our case, may mask any macrovascular protective effects that are due to reducing dicarbonyl stress through overexpression of GLO1.

    ABSTRACT: The reactive dicarbonyls, glyoxal and methylglyoxal (MG), increase in diabetes and may participate in the development of diabetic complications. Glyoxal and MG are detoxified by the sequential activities of glyoxalase 1 (GLO1) and glyoxalase 2. To determine the contribution of these dicarbonyls to the etiology of complications, we have genetically manipulated GLO1 levels in apolipoprotein E-null (Apoe(-/-)) mice. Male Apoe(-/-) mice, hemizygous for a human GLO1 transgene (GLO1TGApoe(-/-) mice) or male nontransgenic Apoe(-/-) litter mates were injected with streptozotocin or vehicle and 6 or 20 weeks later, aortic atherosclerosis was quantified. The GLO1 transgene lessened streptozotocin (STZ)-induced increases in immunoreactive hydroimidazolone (MG-H1). Compared to nondiabetic mice, STZ-treated GLO1TGApoe(-/-) and Apoe(-/-) mice had increased serum cholesterol and triglycerides and increased atherosclerosis at both times after diabetes induction. While the increased GLO1 activity in the GLO1TGApoe(-/-) mice failed to protect against diabetic atherosclerosis, it lessened glomerular mesangial expansion, prevented albuminuria and lowered renal levels of dicarbonyls and protein glycation adducts. Aortic atherosclerosis was also quantified in 22-week-old, male normoglycemic Glo1 knockdown mice on an Apoe(-/-) background (Glo1KDApoe(-/-) mice), an age at which Glo1KD mice exhibit albuminuria and renal pathology similar to that of diabetic mice. In spite of ~75% decrease in GLO1 activity and increased aortic MG-H1, the Glo1KDApoe(-/-) mice did not show increased atherosclerosis compared to age-matched Apoe(-/-) mice. Thus, manipulation of GLO1 activity does not affect the development of early aortic atherosclerosis in Apoe(-/-) mice but can dictate the onset of kidney disease independently of blood glucose levels.
