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.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus has been an established risk factor for cognitive decline, which is recently recognized as a new type of diabetes-related complication. Although wide-range of cognitive domain...
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with deficits across multiple cognitive domains; however, the determinants of cognitive impairment in T2DM are not well characterized. We aimed to evaluat...
Several studies have suggested the role of vitamin D in glycemic metabolism and its potential as adjuvant treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Thus, this review discusses the role of vitamin D in th...
Diabetes mellitus is associated with cognitive impairment which may convert to vascular or neurodegenerative dementia. Impairment of cognitive functions affects patients with type 1 and especially typ...
The increasing number of people with dementia and cognitive impairments makes it essential to detect and prevent modifiable risk factors of dementia. This study focuses on type 2 diabetes mellitus, es...
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).
