The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a neuroplasticity-based computerized cognitive training for the elderly
To assess the efficacy of a mobile-device-deployed cognitive emotional treatment for depression (Moodify) versus an active control treatment (commercially available computer games).
Little is known about preventive strategies with immediate public health impact for cognitive functioning in the oldest-old (OO). Cognitive training improves cognitive functioning in the y...
In diabetic individuals, changes in ventilatory muscle strength and lung function have been demonstrated over the years. The onset and progression of chronic complications in diabetes shou...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a neuroplasticity-based computerized cognitive training for people with schizophrenia in the Brazilian population.
Obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus are prevalent all over the world. Obese patients with more visceral fat are more likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia and obs...
To detect whether adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) have lower cognitive performance than healthy individuals and to detect risk factors for low cognitive performance.
Despite improved understanding of the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes mellitus, explanations for individual variability in disease progression and response to treatment are incomplete. The gut micr...
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is largely attributable to lifestyle factors. Although physiological and medical care needs must be met, psychosocial factors should not be neglected.
Saxagliptin as one of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors can effectively improve glycaemic control in type 2 diabetes mellitus, and nesfatin-1 is regarded as a very important factor in regulati...
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 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
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).
