Myocardial Perfusion in Type 2 Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:16:52 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators aimed to evaluate microvascular circulation with novel method: real-time myocardial contrast echocardiography in patients with type 2 diabetes and normal coronary arteries.

Myocardial blood flow reserve will be determined by quantitative contrast Stress echocardiography. Diabetic individuals will be evaluate in a decompensated state (Phase 1) and after optimization of medical treatment four months later (Phase 2).

Description

Early stages of epicardial atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes are associated with an impairment in endothelium-dependent dilation of the coronary microvasculature, indicating that the pathophysiological consequences of atherosclerosis may extend into the coronary microcirculation.

The investigators will evaluate three parameters of myocardial quantification with contrast Stress echocardiography and correlate with HbA1C levels.

Metformin-Induced Lactic Acidosis: A Case Study.

Metformin is the first line management for patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Metformin-induced lactic acidosis (MALA) is a severe side effect of metformin in high doses. However, there have no...

Acute vs Cumulative Benefits of Metformin use in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Failure.

Observational studies evaluating the safety and effectiveness of metformin have yielded ambiguous results, possibly due to how time-varying drug exposure was modeled. Therefore, our objective was to r...

Changes in metformin use and other antihyperglycemic therapies after insulin initiation in patients with type 2 diabetes.

When patients with type 2 diabetes initiate insulin, metformin should be continued while continuation of other antihyperglycemics has unclear benefit. We aimed to identify practice patterns in antihyp...

Efficacy of metformin on glycemic control and weight in drug-naive type 2 diabetes mellitus patients: A systematic review and meta-analysis of placebo-controlled randomized trials.

Metformin is recommended as the first-line treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Despite its common use, few studies have been conducted to precisely measure the efficacy of metformin versus placebo ...

Potential Effects of Metformin in DNA BER System Based On Oxidative Status in Type 2 Diabetes.

Metformin is used to reduce hyperglycemia that induces energetic stress and leads to reduction in gluconeogenesis. Also, metformin inhibits complex I in oxidative phosphorylation, thereby decreasing c...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pharmaceutical preparation of sitagliptin phosphate and metformin hydrochloride that is used in the treatment of TYPE 2 DIABETES.

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)

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 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.

An analog of GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDE 1 and agonist of the GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDE 1 RECEPTOR that is used as a HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENT and supplemental therapy in the treatment of DIABETES MELLITUS by patients who do not respond to METFORMIN.
