Effect of Androgel on Type 2 Diabetic Males With Hypogonadism

2014-08-27 03:43:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is to study the effect of replacing testosterone on different inflammatory cells in type 2 diabetics with low testosterone levels.

Description

Type 2 diabetes is an atherosclerotic, pro-inflammatory and pro-oxidative stress. Hypogonadism( low testosterone) is also associated with increased levels of inflammatory mediators and atherosclerosis.

This project is about studying the effect of testosterone replacement on different inflammatory cells in blood and urine. It will also compare the dose dependent effect on inflammatory cells. This also involves comparing level of inflammation in hypogonadic diabetic males treated with testosterone with those not treated with any replacement therapy.

This study involves applying AndroGel for 8 wks and studying effects during this time and thereafter.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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 subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.

A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).

A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
