DIABETES type 2 is a condition where the body cannot control blood sugar levels due to problems with the hormone insulin. For sufferers, it is important to avoid high blood sugar levels which, if lasting for long periods, could cause vision problems or a coma. Adding these seeds to someone ’s diet could help reduce blood sugar levels.

ConclusionThe prevalence of radiological glenohumeral OA was higher in the diabetes group with the Samilson –Prieto classification systems, but not associated with clinical OA. The interrater agreement was moderate. We recommend the Samilson–Prieto Allain classification for glenohumeral OA to avoid interpretation of osteophytes

Abstract: Patients with diabetes are sometimes overwhelmed with the burden of self-care associated with the disease. Although it may seem appropriate to diagnose patients experiencing such emotional burdens with depression, the literature over the past 20 years has matured the concept of diabetes distress, which may more accurately describe the phenomenon.

In particular, BPA has been shown to alter insulin synthesis and/or release by pancreatic β-cells, and insulin signaling within insulin-sensitive organs (i.e., liver, muscle, adipose tissues). This resulted in varia...

Many drugs can be used in its treatment. One of them is gliclazide – the sulfonylurea derivative. It is dosed in modified release tablets. The study aimed to determine the minimum steady-state concentration of gliclazide at patients taking modified release tablets. Fasting plasma glucose, insulin level, and glycated hemoglobin were also assayed in this study. Ten patients of the primary care physician clinic took 3...

The diabetic model was induced by an intraperitoneally injection of 180 mg/kg STZ. The animals were randomly divided into five groups: control group, streptozocin (STZ, 180 mg/kg) group, STZ + metformin (Met, 200 mg/kg) group, STZ + FMN (25 mg/kg) group, STZ + FMN (50 mg/kg) group. The mice were intra...

OBJECTIVE: To present results and complications in a case series of outpatients with diabetic and neuropathic foot ulcers with exposed bone following surgical debridement treated with negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT). METHODS: Retrospective data were obtained from digital medical records from the Maccabi Health Services High Risk Foot Clinic in Tel Aviv, Israel, between 2009 and 2014. Medical records examined were those of clinic outpatients with exposed bone following partial foot amputation or selective bone debridement (University of Texas grade III-A) treated with NPWT. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Wound area, ...

DiscussionPolycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 6-8% of reproductive-age women making it the most common endocrinopathy in this age group. There is no consensus on the specific diagnostic criteria for PCOS in adolescents as many of the characteristics overlap with normal adolescent physiology. However, patients should have evidence of hyperandrogenism, oligo- or amenorrhea, and potentially polycystic ovaries. PCOS has a genetic component although a specific gene has not been identified. Incidence of PCOS is 20-40% for a woman with a family history. Hyperandrogenism Androgen levels change during puberty therefore actual ...
