Obesity has been related to later-life dementia. Serum glucose levels and insulin resistance are known to influence cognition in individuals with diabetes. This study aimed to evaluate memory function in middle-aged individuals with obesity in association with glucose metabolism and brain iron content.

Name: Obesity (Silver Spring, Md.)
Measurements of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in non-diabetics can identify subjects who are at increased risk for future cardiovascular (CV) events. There is no consensus agreement whether the addition...
Multifocal fatty liver infiltrations are not uncommon ultrasonographic finding; they are explained by the presence of aberrant vascular supply independent of the portal circulation or insulin resistan...
A significant increase in platelet count may be a risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. This study investigates the association between platelet number and glucose metabolism, evalua...
The patterns of associations between glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and mortality are still unclear.
Aptamers are short DNA and RNA fragments which bind their molecular targets with affinity and specificity comparable to those of antibodies. Here, we describe the selection of novel 2'-F-RNA aptamers ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of blueberry powder on insulin sensitivity in obese, non-diabetic, and insulin resistant subjects. The investigators hypothesized that s...
This will be a Phase 2b, multicenter, randomized, double blind, titration clinical study, evaluating the efficacy and safety in the HDV Insulin Lispro Group versus Insulin Lispro Group in ...
This study aims to compare uric acid, lipid, and kidney profile along with management and complications of Indonesian diabetic patients with good and poor glycemic control based on glycate...
Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction reflects the pathophysiology of Diabetes Mellitus in this patient group favors an increase in morbidity and mortality related to cardiovascular events,...
This study will evaluate the effect of circadian misalignment on insulin sensitivity in healthy lean subjects in a randomized cross-over design. Subjects will be admitted to the research f...
Products of non-enzymatic reactions between GLUCOSE and HEMOGLOBIN A, occurring as a minor fraction of the hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes. Hemoglobin A1c is hemoglobin A with glucose covalently bound to the terminal VALINE of the beta chain. Glycated hemoglobin A is used as an index of the average blood sugar level over a lifetime of erythrocytes.
A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)
A syndrome with excessively high INSULIN levels in the BLOOD. It may cause HYPOGLYCEMIA. Etiology of hyperinsulinism varies, including hypersecretion of a beta cell tumor (INSULINOMA); autoantibodies against insulin (INSULIN ANTIBODIES); defective insulin receptor (INSULIN RESISTANCE); or overuse of exogenous insulin or HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS.
Type of declarative memory, consisting of personal memory in contrast to general knowledge.
Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS. It can be caused by the presence of INSULIN ANTIBODIES or the abnormalities in insulin receptors (RECEPTOR, INSULIN) on target cell surfaces. It is often associated with OBESITY; DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS; INFECTION; and certain rare conditions. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
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...
