Dr Jérémy Coquart (Université de Rouen, FSSEP, EA 3832, CETAPS - Mont Saint Aignan)
The measurement of peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) is important since it allows to evaluate deconditioning, to prescribe an adapted exercise intensity during exercise rehabilitation sessions, or to assess the progress.
Unfortunately, the exercise test required to obtain such a parameter requires a gas exchange analyser,

Diabetes and diabetic cardiomyopathy
Dr Raja Moukhlis (Paris)
Subclinical left ventricular dysfunction is common in patients with diabetes type 2. Obesity has been proposed as a causative factor in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy.
This could be a confounding factor affecting the relationship between diabetes and the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy.

Association between HbA1c variations and annual decline in renal function
Dr Raja Moukhlis (Paris)
This study evaluated the relationship between inter-visit variability in glycaemic control and the development of cognitive decline in renal function in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) followed in an outpatient clinic.
The authors evaluated the mean and coefficient of variation of 8-12 measurements of HbA1c and 4-6...

Ileal interposition in type 2 diabetes: how far will metabolic surgery go?
Pr Jean-Louis Schlienger (Strasbourg)
Bariatric surgery has proven its therapeutic potential in T2DM associated with severe obesity. The dramatic improvement in glycaemic control or remission of T2DM, has led some to state that T2DM is a surgical condition!
The metabolic benefit can only be partly explained by weight loss and is largely due to modifications...

Dr Raja Moukhlis (Paris)
Statins and nicotinic acid that reduce LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) levels have been associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Certain LDL-C lowering polymorphisms have also been associated with an increased risk of T2DM.
What was missing to date, is a longitudinal study evaluating the relationship between...

Dr Jérémy Coquart (Université de Rouen, FSSEP, EA 3832, CETAPS - Mont Saint Aignan)
The increased prevalence of obesity in childhood and adolescence increases the risk of chronic disease and mortality in adulthood. Therefore, prevention and treatment of obesity in minors are crucial. One of the most common strategies to fight against obesity is physical activity (PA).
However, in general, the management...

Metformin and maternal obesity: disappointing results
Pr Jean-Louis Schlienger (Strasbourg)
According to the Barker hypothesis, the future life cardiometabolic risk of children is compromised by exposure to a metabolically unfavourable environment during foetal life.
Maternal obesity, gestational diabetes or pregnancy-induced hypertension may disturb the in utero developmental program,...
