Comunicado de la FDA sobre la seguridad de los medicamentos: Nueva advertencia y contraindicación sobre medicamentos para la presión arterial que contienen aliskiren

El 20 de abril del 2012, la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos de Estados Unidos (FDA por sus siglas en inglés) advirtió sobre la probabilidad de riesgos por el uso de medicamentos para la presión arterial que contienen aliskiren combinado con otros medicamentos denominados inhibidores de la enzima convertidora de angiotensina (ACEIs por sus siglas en inglés), y los bloqueadores de los receptores de angiotensina (ARBs por sus siglas en inglés) en pacientes con diabetes o problemas renales o de riñón.

Authors: Gebremichael GB, Mariye Zemicheal T Abstract Background: Hypoglycemia is an acute medical situation that occurs when blood glucose level falls below 70 mg/dl. Although prevention of hypoglycemia is one cornerstone in the management of diabetes mellitus, its prevention practice among patients with diabetes mellitus is insufficiently studied. Moreover, the existed scarce literature in Ethiopia revealed hypoglycemia prevention practice is inadequate. Thus, this study tried to assess hypoglycemia prevention practices and associated factors among diabetic patients. Methods: Hospital-based cross-secti...

Authors: Fruzzetti F, Benelli E, Fidecicchi T, Tonacchera M Abstract The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the effects of a treatment with α-lipoic acid (ALA) associated with two different doses of myo-inositol (MI) on clinical and metabolic features of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Eighty-eight women received the treatment, and 71 among them had complete clinical charts and were considered eligible for this study. All women were treated with 800 mg of ALA per day: 43 patients received 2000 mg of MI and 28 received 1000 mg of MI per day. Menstrual cyclicity, B...

PasquiniROME, Apr 9 2020 (IPS-Partners) Behind the Tiburtina Station, in the East of Rome, with just a small covered area protecting from the inclemency of the weather, sleeping close to each other is the only way to stay warm. A boy of Ivorian origin is alone, far from everyone, in the centre of the sidewalk, exposed to a freezing wind. ‘He told me he preferred to die of cold than to get infected, because he was very scared and he knew that it was not safe for him to be close to the others’, Dr. Antonella Torchiaro told Degrees of Latitude. She is a physician o...

In this study, we investigated the effect that ECD had on the lipid metabolism induced by high-fat diet in C57BL/6 mice. Body weight, body length, and abdominal circumference were detected. Blood lipid content was measured via biochemical assay kit. The gene and protein expression of PPARγ and LPL in visceral fat and skeletal muscle of mice was measured by real-time PCR and western blot. The research discovered that the phlegm-resolving effect that ECD had on high-fat diet mice was mainly manifested as reduced body weight, Lee's index, abdominal circumference, and level of TG and TC. Meanwhile, we observed significan...

Authors: Li Y, Li Z, Wang R, Mi B, Jiang T, Lu M, Liu J, Wang B, Zhang D, Xu Q, Huang Y Abstract Tangzhiqing (TZQ), a Chinese herbal medicine, has been widely used to treat diabetes mellitus in China. TZQ works as a potential α-glucosidase inhibitor to reduce the absorption of glucose from dietary carbohydrates. The main aim of this study was to investigate the postprandial glucose-lowering effect of TZQ on the common carbohydrates in healthy humans. Meanwhile, the possible types of the inhibited α-glucosidase enzymes were predicted in this study. Glucose, sucrose, maltose, maltodextrin, and starch were...

Conclusions: we can conclude from our data on diabetic rats that in intravenous LLLT, with constant laser energy, shorter wavelengths like Blue (λ= 450 nm) is more effective than longer wavelengths such as Red (λ = 638 nm) and IR (λ = 808 nm) lasers to lower the level of interleukins toward non-diabetic ones.

Authors: Bhawal UK, Yoshida K, Kurita T, Suzuki M, Okada Y, Tewari N, Oka S, Kuboyama N, Hiratsuka K Abstract Background and aims: The present investigation was carried out to determine the levels of blood serum components and inflammatory cytokines in diabetic rat models [Goto-Kakizaki (GK), Zucker, and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced Sprague Dawley (SD) rats] which underwent abdominal Low-Power Laser Irradiation (LPLI) and compare them with non-irradiated controls. Methods: The animals were subdivided into the following groups: diabetic control rats (GK, Zucker, STZ) and diabetic rats treated with LPLI (GK + LPL...
