In this study, we investigate the prevalence rate of H. pylori infection and its relationship to MBL rs1800450 and TNF-α rs1800620 polymorphism in T2DM. In this case-control study, 174 patients with type II diabetes and 185 healthy controls were studied. Also, demographics, physical, and biochemical parameters were performed in all patients. The DNA extracted from blood specimens was amplified by H. pylori cagA-specific primers. The MBL rs1800450 and TNF-α rs1800620 genotyping were detected by amplification refractory mutation system-polymerase chain reaction (ARMS-PCR). The results show that H. pylori cagA pos...

I would like to acknowledge the Urban Indian Health Institute’s enormous contribution to today’s blog! — Annie In past blog posts, we have explored health literacy issues from a variety of perspectives. Today we explore how it impacts American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs). According to the Indian Health Service, “low health literacy is disproportionately burdensome to American Indians and Alaska Natives and their elders.”2 Individuals with lower health literacy skills often use more health care services designed to treat disease complications, while fewer use services intended to p...

ConclusionsThere is a continued overall trend in the increased popularity of the SG and decreased utilization of the RYGB and LAGB, although growth of the SG appears to be slowing. This is also true among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Regardless of surgery type, underinsured and African-American race were more likely to be readmitted.

AbstractBackgroundDiabetes mellitus is a prevalent disease that endangers human health. Bariatric surgery can effectively relieve insulin resistance with elevated serum bile acids (BAs). 12 α-Hydroxylated BAs were previously reported to be associated with insulin resistance. The aim of this study was to analyze changes in 12α-hydroxylated BA composition and possible associated mechanisms in diabetic rats following sleeve gastrectomy (SG).MethodsSG and sham operations were performed in diabetic rats induced by high-fat diet feeding and streptozotocin. Body weight, food intake, oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT),...

ConclusionThis is the first comparative study of the DES in femoropopliteal artery lesions in patients with and without CRF. These results indicate that the DES placed in femoropopliteal artery lesions of CRF patients is safe and effective with similar patency and TLR rates to patients without CRF.Level of EvidenceLevel 3, Post-Market Surveillance Study.

The Hippo signaling pathway in pancreatic β-cells: functions and regulations. Endocr Rev. 2017 Oct 18;: Authors: Ardestani A, Maedler K Abstract Hippo signaling is an evolutionarily conserved pathway that critically regulates development and homeostasis of various tissues in response to a wide range of extracellular and intracellular signals. As an emerging significant player in many diseases, the Hippo pathway is also involved in the pathophysiology of diabetes on the level of the pancreatic islets. Multiple lines of evidence uncover the importance of Hippo signaling in pancreas development as we...

Abstract AimsThe comparative efficacy of Roux‐en‐Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy on Type 2 diabetes remission and the role of weight loss are unclear. The DiaRem Type 2 diabetes remission prediction score uses HbA1c, age and Type 2 diabetes medications but not Type 2 diabetes duration. The aim of this study was to compare the predictive value of the DiaRem score with the DiaBetter score that includes Type 2 diabetes duration, upon combined (complete plus partial) 2‐year post‐surgery Type 2 diabetes remission in people following RYGB and sleeve gastrectomy, and to investigate the relationship between ...
