Researchers to Glucose Homeostasis

  • 5.967 Impact Factor

  • Internal Medicine

  • Pediatric Endocrinology

Background to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Obesity has tripled in U.S. children since 1980

    • 19% of 6-19yr olds are obese

  • The rise in obesity has paralleled increases in childhood hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and Type 2 Diabetes.

  • Childhood obesity is associated with increase prevalence of cardiovascular events and Type 2 Diabetes in adulthood.

Supporting evidence
Supporting Evidence to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Hypovitaminosis D in obese children and adolescents: relationship with adiposity, insulin sensitivity, ethnicity, and season

    • Metabolism 57:183-91

  • Prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in obese children and adolescents

    • J ClinEndocrinolMetab 92:2017-29

Objectives to Glucose Homeostasis

  • The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between dietary habits and 25(OH)D status in obese children.

  • Examine the relationship between 25(OH)D and glucose homeostasis.

  • Cross-sectional observational study

Selection of subjects
Selection of Subjects to Glucose Homeostasis

  • 411 obese children (BMI >95th percentile for age group) ages 6-16

    • Recruited from Center of Obesity and its Consequences on Health in Dallas, Texas

  • 89 non overweight children

    • Recruited from Endocrinology Center after being treated for hypothyroidism or GH deficiency, but otherwise healthy

  • Exclusion criteria: use of anticonvulsant, vitamin D supplement more than 400 IU/day, other relevant disorders

Data collected
Data collected to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Age, sex, ethnicity, height, weight, blood pressure, dietary habits

  • Laboratory data

    • Serum 25(OH)D

    • HbgA1C

    • Fasting glucose and insulin

    • OGTT

    • HOMA-IR

Statistical analysis
Statistical Analysis to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Prevalence of Vit D insufficiency determined for obese and non-overweight populations within each ethnic group and season

    • Data collected in summer, fall, winter, spring

    • Sufficiency: 75 nmol/L

    • Insufficiency: < 75 nmol/L

    • Deficiency: < 50 nmol/L

    • χ squared to determine prevalence rate

Statistical analysis cont
Statistical Analysis cont. to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Two way ANOVA to compare 25(OH)D between groups and assess interaction btw obesity and season; gender and ethnicity

  • Pearson coefficients used to determine relationship btw 25(OH)D and:

    • 2h glucose

    • HbbA1c

    • HOMA-IR

    • Blood pressure

Study objective
Study Objective to Glucose Homeostasis

  • To compare prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in obese versus non-overweight children.

  • Examine relationships between:

    • Dietary habits and serum 25(OH)D levels

    • Abnormal glucose metabolism and obesity in children

  • Cross-sectional observational study- no intervention was implemented

Subjects to Glucose Homeostasis

  • 411 obese and 89 non-overweight children (aged 6-16 years) residing in North Texas

    • Grouping based on BMI percentile-for-age: Obese= >95th percentile, non= <85th percentile

    • Adequate sample size, but could have included more non-overweight to better compare

    • Convenience sample of non-overweight subjects from Endocrinology Center for Hyperthyroidism

      • No known relationship between thyroid and vitamin D status

  • Same exclusion criteria for both groups

    • Meds: anticonvulsant, glucocorticoid, and/or vitamin D supplement

    • Health Status: Hepatic dz, renal dz, malabsorptive disorder, bone metabolism disorder, hypothalamic dz, genetic predisposition to obesity

Accounted for multiple subject characteristics
Accounted for multiple subject characteristics to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Age

  • BMI

  • Gender

  • Ethnicity

  • Season

  • Dietary practices

Test procedures
Test Procedures to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Used common, standard procedures determined to be reliable and valid:

    • Serum 25(OH)D

    • Diabetes Risk Factors (validated by Amer Diabetes Assoc)

      • OGTT

      • Fasting plasma glucose and insulin

      • HgbA1C

      • HOMA-IR (insulin resistance and beta-cell function)

  • All measurements taken in same way in both groups

  • Result evaluation based to gender, race, and season in both groups

Study design valid
Study Design- valid to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Used standardized, accurate measures of glucose metabolism and vitamin D status

  • Included variety of subjects: different genders, races, ages

  • Matched non-overweight subjects to obese based on age, race, and season  more accurate comparison

Author s conclusions
Author’s Conclusions to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Study results show a negative relationship between vitamin D status and BMI in children

  • Glucose metabolism is related to vitamin D status

  • Limitation: unable to account for physical activity or sun-light exposure

    • Could aid in better understanding differences in vitamin D status between the 2 groups

Relevant outcomes
Relevant Outcomes to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Obese had less seasonal variation in vitamin D status (p<0.03)

  • Breakfast skipping and high soda intakes were associated with lower vitamin D status (p<0.001)

  • When adjusted for age and BMI, vitamin D status negatively correlated with HOMA-IR and OGTT (p=0.001 and p=0.04)

    • Lower vitamin D status is associated with T2D risk factors in obese children

Implications for practice
Implications for Practice to Glucose Homeostasis

  • Nutrition Professionals:

    • Raise awareness of dietary factors negatively affecting vitamin D status in children (breakfast skipping, soda consumption)

    • Highlight need for early dietary interventions

  • Clinical Professionals:

    • Suggests need for further study of vitamin D supplementation as a potential treatment for conditions such as insulin resistance
