The complex nature of ankle fractures is magnified when seen in patients at high risk of soft tissue wound healing complications. The major categories include associated soft tissue injury, diabetes, tobacco use, peripheral vascular disease, malnutrition, alcoholism, and corticosteroid use. Because of the potential for wound dehiscence and infection with open reduction and internal fixation of ankle fractures in these patients, minimally invasive procedures have been described. The aims of the present study were to assess the possibility for, and evaluate the results and complications of, minimally invasive techniques for ...

Authors: Zang H, Jiang F, Cheng X, Xu H, Hu X Abstract Adropin has been identified as potent regulatory hormone implicated in insulin sensitivity and the maintenance of energy homeostasis. The aim of current study was to investigate serum adropin concentrations of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients in the fasting status, especially those overweight/obese and evaluate the relationships between adropin levels and metabolic parameters. A total of 116 T2DM patients and 60 controls with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) were recruited to the study. Adropin concentration was determined using commercial ELISA kits. Ant...

Authors: Blonde L, Burudpakdee C, Divino V, Bookhart B, Cai J, Pfeifer M, Coleman CI Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of non-medical switch (NMS) from canagliflozin on antihyperglycemic agent (AHA) medication taking behavior. METHODS: This retrospective real-world database analysis included patients with type 2 diabetes with a prescription claim for canagliflozin between 8/2015 and 1/2016 using administrative claims and longitudinal prescription data. Patients with NMS from canagliflozin were identified as those with discontinuation or switch of canagliflozin and enrolled in a pharmacy benefit manager t...

CONCLUSION: DM management by an endocrinologist was associated with greater HbA1C improvement and significantly lower medical costs. Total medical and pharmacy costs were higher with an endocrinologist, but resulted in lower costs ranging from 2% to 9% for patients with T1D, regardless of insurance type.

Authors: Li X, Wang Y, Wang K, Wu Y Abstract Paeoniflorin is the main bioactive components of the root of P.lactiflora Pall., and has been widely used as an anti-inflammation and immunomodulatory agent. However, the effect and mechanisms of Paeoniflorin in diabetic nephropathy (DN) remains to be elucidated. In the present study, streptozotocin (STZ)-induced type 1 diabetic mice model was used to investigate the protective effect of Paeoniflorin and the role of the Janus kinase (JAK) 2/signal transducer (STAT) 3 signaling pathway on DN. After treatment with Paeoniflorin at a dose of 25, 50 and 100 mg/kg once a day f...

Authors: Taki Y, Sakurada T, Koitabashi K, Imai N, Shibagaki Y Abstract Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is recognized as an excellent method of dialysis because the therapy is gentle, continuous, and cost-effective. However, a large number of patients must unfortunately transfer from PD to hemodialysis because of peritonitis or fluid overload in the early phase after PD initiation. In the present study, we reviewed clinical indicators before PD initiation to try to identify predictive factors for early withdrawal from PD.For this retrospective cohort study at two hospitals between March 2003 and October 2016, we defined w...

We report a rare occurrence of incisional hernia attributable to internal wound dehiscence after PD catheter placement in a patient on sirolimus.A 34-year-old Latino American man was started on PD training 4 weeks after placement of a PD catheter. Soon after completing training, he developed a large soft bulge close to the PD catheter, with expansile cough impulse suggestive of an incisional hernia filled with peritoneal dialysate. The size of the bulge would decrease after the dialysate was drained. No external leak of dialysate was evident along the exit site.Because of the size of the hernia and the history of it fillin...

More than a decade ago (the article I published on my blog was originally posted on January 8, 2007 although I began research into the subject the preceding summer, see the article athttp://blog.sstrumello.com/2007/01/business-of-diabetes-real-story-behind.html for more background), I asked a number of very legitimate questions (some of which were later answered, others were not), with the most notable one being about why so many other diabetes medicines had " generics " but insulin did not (in spite of the fact that its patents had expired years ago).  Unfortunately, in my research, I discovered the some of...

A lot of my posts here are just to keep a journal of what's going on. His labs are declining. The nephrologist called and wants to schedule an ultrasound of his kidneys as he thinks there might be a tumor.My best guess - it's his heart. Here's why I say that.His last labs were 1/18. Current labs were 4/13.BUN jumped from 26 to 36. Normal is 7 - 23. It's been as high as 63 in the past! It's the test for blood in the urine and normally means either there is something blocking the kidneys, you are exercising too much, or your heart is not pumping enough blood through the kidneys.His A1c is 8...
