Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

The type 2 diabetes is commonly considered a complex genetic disease,resulting from interactions between multiple genes and environmental factorswithout any single factor having strong independent effects. We studied theinfluence of family history to type 2 diabetes on physical phenotype of 47 healthadolescents. In both sexes groups with positive family history (FH+) had thehighest values of stature and body weight (p<0.05 for males, not significant forfemales), waist circumference (p<0.05 for males, not significant for females), andwrist circumference (p=0.05 for males, not significant for females). Consideringperformance, FH+ males showed a significant higher performance in powerexercises than FH- males; no significant differences were found between FH+ andFH- female groups. Family history to type 2 diabetes can induce in both sexesprecocious phenotype and performances linked-related variations; more studiesare necessary to confirm these data and to verify preventive interventionspromoting significant life-style changes.
