Abstract BackgroundThe outcomes and prognosis of revascularization by either coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with noninsulin‐treated type 2 diabetes mellitus (NITDM) have not yet been well established. MethodsRandomized controlled trials (RCTs) were identified by searching Pubmed, EMBASE, and Cochrane library from inception until May 2016. Heterogeneity was evaluated, and the pooled hazard ratio (HR) was calculated by using a fixed‐effect model. A random‐effect model was used when statistically significant heterogeneity was observed (I2 ≥&...

Conclusion The HAEAm possesses in vivo antidiabetic effect, having such effect through multitarget modes of action that involve antihyperglycemic (α-glucosidases inhibition), hypoglycemic (insulin secretion) and potential insulin sensitizer (PPARγ/GLUT4 overexpression) actions. Graphical abstract

CONCLUSIONS: Some population subgroups have higher rates of medical events and yet receive lower rates of treatments, and such disparities are systematic. Socially constructed behaviors and structurally discriminating public policies in part contribute to such systematic health disparities across population subgroups.

The objective of this study was to investigate the antidiabetic potential of P. niruri, using assays for α-glucosidase, muscle glucose transport, liver glucose production and adipogenesis. α-Glucosidase inhibitory activity was performed on aqueous and ethanolic extract of aerial parts of P. niruri. The aqueous and ethanolic extract of P. niruri showed α-glucosidase inhibitory activity with IC50 values of 3.7 ± 1.1 and 6.3 ± 4.8 μg/mL, respectively. HR-bioassay/HPLC-HRMS and NMR analysis was used for identification of compounds. Corilagin (1) and rep...

Conclusions: Patients, family members and clinicians agreed on patients having a vote in changes and family being involved in discussions. Training needs to be provided to all stakeholder groups. Lessons learned: Consensus between key stakeholder groups in participation can be achieved. There is support for participation at all times in psychiatry but only as problems arise in diabetes. Greater intensity patient participation is supported with preference for patients having a vote in changes and family only being involved in discussions about changes. Limitations: Higher levels of education have been associated w...

Conclusions: People with T2DM see clear benefits of structured education after attending but need information and encouragement from their healthcare team to support attendance. Healthcare professionals have a key role in promoting structured education and empowering people to self-care. The innovative strategies developed by educators across the country to promote structured education could be better communicated and standardised nationally.Lessons learned: It is possible to engage a diverse group of stakeholders to identify targets for research. Engaging key stakeholders facilitated recruitment to this study as the topic...
