Background/aim: Despite the rise in type 2 diabetes prevalence worldwide, we do not have a method for early risk prediction. The predictive ability of genetic models has been found to be little or negligible so far. In this study, we aimed to develop a better early risk prediction method for type 2 diabetes.

A Predictive model for type 2 diabetes mellitus based on genomic and phenotypic risk factors
Gül, Hüsamettin; Aydın Son, Yeşim; Department of Health Informatics (2014)
Despite the rise in type 2 diabetes (T2D) prevalence worldwide, we do not have a method for early T2D risk prediction. Phenotype variables only contribute to risk prediction near the onset or after the development of T2D. The predictive ability of genetic models has been found to be little or negligible so far. T2D has mostly genetic background but the genetic loci identified so far account for only a small fraction (10%) of the overall heritable risk. In this study, we used data from The Nurses' Health Stu...
Prediction of insulin resistance by statistical tool MARS
Örsçelik, Simge Gökçe; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Osterhoff, Martin; Department of Bioinformatics (2014)
Recently, following the rise in obesity prevalence, the incidence of type 2 diabetes rose remarkably. Diabetes is a serious disorder, accompanied by increased risk of developing heart disease, kidney failure, and new cases of blindness. Dietary habits are strongly related to type 2 diabetes. We sought to observe how dietary protein and glycemic index patterns, weight change and/or other predictors we selected relate to insulin resistance change. First, we applied multiple linear regression, and then statist...
Validity and reliability of time management questionnaire
ALAY, SEMA; Koçak, Mehmet Settar (SAGE Publications, 2002-01-01)
the purpose of this study was to test the psychometric properties of the 49-item Diabetes Time Management Questionnaire (DTMQ) in individuals with diabetes. The (DTMQ) was designed to assess general time management skills and those specifically relevant to compliance to a diabetes healthcare regimen.
Early alterations in myocardia and vessels of the diabetic rat heart: an FTIR microspectroscopic study
Toyran, Neslihan; Lasch, Peter; Naumann, Dieter; Turan, Belma; Severcan, Feride (2006-08-01)
Diabetes mellitus is associated with a high incidence and poor prognosis of cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of relatively short-term (5 weeks) Type I diabetes on the left ventricle, the right ventricle and the vessel (vein) on the left ventricle of the myocardium, at molecular level by FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared) microspectroscopy. The rats were categorized into two groups: control group (for the left ventricle myocardium, n = 8; for the right ventricle m...
Systems-level analysis of genome wide association study results for a pilot juvenile idiopathic arthritis family study

Genome wide association studies (GWAS) determine susceptibility profiles for complex diseases. In this study, GWAS was performed in 26 patients with oligo and rheumatoid factor negative polyarticular juvenile idiopathic artritis (JIA) and their healthy parents by Affymetrix 250K SNP arrays. Biological function and pathway enrichment analysis was done. This is the first GWAS reported for JIA families from the eastern Mediterranean population. Enrichment of Fc gamma R-mediated phagocytosis pathway and respons...
