Predictors of diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes who have normoalbuminuria.

Microalbuminuria is an independent predictor of retinopathy, so absence of microalbuminuria may tend clinician not to screen for diabetic retinopathy (DR).

Management of diabetic retinopathy and diabetic maculopathy in elderly patients with diabetes mellitus.

The world's population is aging, and simultaneously, the prevalence of diabetes mellitus worldwide is rapidly increasing. Therefore, the clinical management of diabetic retinopathy and diabetic maculo...

Dyslipidemia and diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the major microvascular complications of diabetes. In developed countries, it is the most common cause of preventable blindness in diabetic adults. Dyslipidemia, a...

Detection of neovascularization based on fractal and texture analysis with interaction effects in diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy is a major cause of blindness. Proliferative diabetic retinopathy is a result of severe vascular complication and is visible as neovascularization of the retina. Automatic detecti...

Plasma and vitreous fluid levels of Dickkopf-1 in patients with diabetic retinopathy.

PurposeDickkopf-1 (DKK-1) is a secreted inhibitor of the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, which plays a pathogenic role in diabetic retinopathy (DR). We aimed to investigate whether DKK-1 levels in t...

Vascular Remodeling and the Effects of Angiogenic Inhibition in Diabetic Retinopathy

The retinal vasculature changes dramatically in patients with diabetic retinopathy especially between non-proliferative and proliferative disease. The retinal vasculature can be imaged and...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1325)

A drug used to reduce hemorrhage in diabetic retinopathy.

Removal of the whole or part of the vitreous body in treating endophthalmitis, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, intraocular foreign bodies, and some types of glaucoma.

Disease of the RETINA as a complication of DIABETES MELLITUS. It is characterized by the progressive microvascular complications, such as ANEURYSM, interretinal EDEMA, and intraocular PATHOLOGIC NEOVASCULARIZATION.

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
