Estimation of gestational diabetes mellitus and dose-response association of BMI with the occurrence of diabetes mellitus in pregnant women of the west of Iran.

The authors aim to investigate the GDM and the dose-response association of BMI with it in pregnant women in Kermanshah, Iran. During the 2015-2016 year, the 1010 pregnant women were studied. The restricted cubic spline method was used to evaluate the relationship between BMI and GDM. The risk of GDM was 10.1%. The incidence rate ratio for GDM indicates a non-significant protective effect and, t...

Dysfunction of muscle contraction with impaired intracellular Ca handling in skeletal muscle and the effect of exercise training in male db/db mice.

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by reduced contractile force production and increased fatigability of skeletal muscle. While the maintenance of Ca homeostasis during muscle contraction is a requisite for optimal contractile function, the mechanisms underlying muscle contractile dysfunction in type 2 diabetes are unclear. Here, we investigated skeletal muscle contractile force and Ca flux during c...

Lack of effect of the SLC47A1 and SLC47A2 gene polymorphisms on the glycemic response to metformin in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients.

Background This work aimed to evaluate the influence of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the SLC47A1 (922-158G>A; rs2289669) and SLC47A2 (-130G>A; rs12943590) genes on the relative change in HbA1c in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients of South India who are taking metformin as monotherapy. It also aims to study the effects of these SNPs on the dose requirement of metformin for glyce...

Arterial stiffness as a measure of cardiovascular risk in obese adolescents and adolescents with diabetes type 1.

Acyl-ghrelin mediated lipid retention and inflammation in obesity-related Type 2 diabetes.

Acyl-ghrelin has various peripheral effects including the potential role in mediating cellular lipid removal and macrophage polarization. Previous reports are contradictory as to how glycaemia and acyl-ghrelin mediates lipid retention and inflammation within individuals with Type 2 diabetes (T2D). Our aim was to explore acyl-ghrelin levels and ghrelin expression in relation to lipid and inflammato...

Exploiting novel tailored immunotherapies of type 1 diabetes: Short interfering RNA delivered by cationic liposomes enables efficient Down-regulation of variant PTPN22 gene in T lymphocytes.

In autoimmune diseases as Type 1 diabetes, the actual treatment that provides the missing hormones is not able, however, to interrupt the underlining immunological mechanism. Importantly, novel immunotherapies are exploited to protect and rescue the remaining hormone producing cells. Among probable targets of immunotherapy, the C1858T mutation in the PTPN22 gene, which encodes for the lymphoid tyr...

Prediabetes: Early identification and management.

Prediabetes continues to be a national and worldwide health concern, affecting 84 million adults in the US. Early identification and intervention have been successful in delaying and/or preventing the progression to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Nonpharmacologic treatment of prediabetes is paramount, although pharmacologic treatment is appropriate in high-risk patients. In an attempt to curb th...

Lasso Regression for the Prediction of Intermediate Outcomes Related to Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Using the TRANSIT Quality Indicators.

Cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality are largely influenced by poor control of hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes. Process indicators are essential to monitor the effectiveness of quality improvement strategies. However, process indicators should be validated by demonstrating their ability to predict desirable outcomes. The objective of this study is to identify an effective method...

Influencing Factors of the Diabetes Distress among Chinese Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Patients with Diabetes Mellitus (DM) are required to have long-term treatment regimen and strict self-management, which thus might lead to the Diabetes Distress (DD). Patients' DD varies in different regions with different levels of medical conditions. For improving the treatment effect of the patients with the Type-2-Diabetes-Mellitus (T2DM), this study explores the influencing factors of the pat...

Glucose variability during delirium in diabetic and non-diabetic intensive care unit patients: A prospective cohort study.

To determine whether glucose variability is altered during delirium days compared to non-delirious days in critically ill patients with and without diabetes in the intensive care unit (ICU).

Risk factors for self-reported diabetes among Bhutanese adults: A nationally representative survey data analysis.

Bhutan, a small land-locked country in the eastern Himalayas has been undergoing an epidemiological and nutritional transition in the last two decades. The objective of this paper was to determine the prevalence and explore the risk factors of self-reported diabetes among Bhutanese adults.

Periodontal regenerative effect of enamel matrix derivative in diabetes.

The present study aimed to investigate the periodontal regenerative effect of enamel matrix derivative (EMD) in diabetes. Thirty-six rats were assigned to streptozotocin-induced diabetes or control (non-diabetic) groups.
