Diabetes distress in Type 1 diabetes--a new measurement fit for purpose.
We examined internal consistency, construct validity, subscale construction and cut points for determining clinically relevant diabetes distress, as well as two- and four-item brief versions of the DDS17. The DDS17 had a Cronbach's alpha of 0.92; subscale alphas were 0.83-0.89. A four-factor divisio...

Proinsulin/C-peptide ratio, glucagon and remission in new-onset Type 1 diabetes mellitus in young adults.
We explored if efficiency of proinsulin processing is associated with the remission phenomenon. Methods Seventy-eight patients with new-onset Type 1 diabetes were followed prospectively for 3 years. Daily insulin dosage, HbA(1c) , plasma glucose, proinsulin, C-peptide, glucagon concentrations...

Genetic investigation in an Italian child with an unusual association of atrial septal defect, attributable to a new familial GATA4 gene mut...
We describe the first report of pancretic agenesis with an associated cardiac defect and a mutation in the GATA4 gene. We could not establish that the GATA4 mutation was causative for pancreatic agenesis and further genetic investigation to detect the genetic cause of the pancreas agenesis was unsuc...
