Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex metabolic disease with high incidence throughout the world. Dyslipidemia is the leading cause of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASCVD) in T2D patients. hsa-miR-33 (miR-33) serves as a regulator in lipid metabolism. We hypothesized that the blood miR-33 associates with serum lipids in T2D patients at high risk of ASCVD events.

We analyzed circulating soluble epidermal growth factor receptor (sEGFR) levels in humans. Serum sEGFR levels were higher in subjects with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes mellitus compared with contro...
To investigate the relationship between serum adiponectin, ADIPOQ variants and haplotypes, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) have been proposed as type 2 diabetes biomarkers, and they may be a more sensitive way to predict development of the disease than the currently used tools. Our aim was t...
Elevated circulating adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (AFABP) levels have been found to correlate with diabetic nephropathy staging in cross-sectional studies. However, it remains unclear whether ...
Diabetes remains a long standing public health issue among the Chinese population, with an incidence of up to 11.6%, of which type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) accounts for 85%-95%. During this study, w...
HMG CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) are commonly used to treat high cholesterol (HC) in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Several studies have shown benefits of statin amon...
Many patients with type 2 diabetes have difficulty attaining cholesterol goals, partly due to the recommendations for fasting measurements that may not be practical in the typical clinical...
This study was not conducted in the United States. Many people with type 2 diabetes also have high cholesterol levels. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of vildaglipti...
The investigators measured serum METRNL levels in newly diagnosed patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) compared with normal glucose tolerance or prediabetes and explored the correlations b...
Statins may decrease serum testosterone levels via decreasing cholesterol. This longitudinal study detected the effects of rosuvastatin on free testosterone levels and sexual function in m...
Cholesterol which is contained in or bound to very low density lipoproteins (VLDL). High circulating levels of VLDL cholesterol are found in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE IIB. The cholesterol on the VLDL is eventually delivered by LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS to the tissues after the catabolism of VLDL to INTERMEDIATE-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS, then to LDL.
Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A pyrrole and heptanoic acid derivative,HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA REDUCTASE INHIBITOR (statin), and ANTICHOLESTEREMIC AGENT that is used to reduce serum levels of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B; AND TRIGLYCERIDES and to increase serum levels of HDL-CHOLESTEROL in the treatment of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS and prevention of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES in patients with multiple risk factors.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
