Prediabetes and diabetes are associated with increased insulin resistance and decreased insulin production, dyslipidemia, and increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Our goals were to assess lipoprotein subfractions using novel assays in such subjects.

Name: Journal of atherosclerosis and thrombosis
Prediabetes is a precursor of diabetes and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Individuals with prediabetes reportedly have higher C-reactive protein levels, which is a risk factor for diabe...
Diabetes increases risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Current guidelines do not recommend measuring lipoprotein(a), another ASCVD risk factor, in these individuals. We examined t...
To investigate the correlation among the serum low density lipoprotein subfractions, lipoprotein a and other routine indices.
Although inadequate vitamin D and altered parathyroid hormone (PTH) are implicated in deranged glucose metabolism and risk of future diabetes, their role in regulating glucose homeostasis in establish...
Many individuals with prediabetes, as presently defined, will progress to diabetes (T2D) despite the considerable benefit of lifestyle modification. Therefore, it is paramount to screen individuals at...
Prediabetes is a term that refers to alterations in glucose homeostasis, including impaired fasting glucose (IFG), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or both, involving a higher risk of prog...
Prediabetes is the term used for people whose glucose levels do not meet the criteria for diabetes but are too high to be considered normal. This is defined by the presence of blood glucos...
Given the data on the active ingredients of Valedia, this research aims to evaluate the effect of its chronic consumption (24 weeks) in association with some vitamins and trace elements on...
The transition from normal glucose tolerance to overt type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) encompasses a variety of glycemic abnormalities that are commonly referred to as 'prediabetes'. While i...
High tissue iron is a risk factor for diabetes even within the broad normal range of normal human values. In order to demonstrate the benefits of reducing iron on glucose homeostasis and t...
A glucose transport facilitator that is expressed primarily in PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; LIVER; and KIDNEYS. It may function as a GLUCOSE sensor to regulate INSULIN release and glucose HOMEOSTASIS.
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
Derivatives of biguanide (the structure formula HN(C(NH)NH2)2) that are primarily used as oral HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS for the treatment of DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2 and PREDIABETES.
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
