CONCLUSIONS: Distal forearm arteries in diabetics may be severely atherosclerotic. Forearm loop arteriovenous fistula can be considered as the primary access for cases decided as inconvenient for fistula creation due to severe occlusive atherosclerotic disease of the forearm arteries; in order to preserve upper arm veins for future access procedures.

In the several decades since the need for dietary zinc was discovered, it has proven to be far more important to overall health than initially thought. And deficiency is proving to be common. You may recall that the phytates of wheat and grains block nearly all absorption of dietary zinc, along with blocking iron, calcium, and magnesium (all positively-charged cations). Just as iron deficiency anemia with hemoglobin values of 7 or 8 g/dl resistant to iron supplementation commonly develops in grain-consuming populations, so a parallel zinc deficiency also develops (although not well reflected by blood levels of zinc, which ...

  One big hypertension trial called SPRINT was published in 2015, has caused major delayed aftershocks in the hypertensive world now in 2017. The new guidelines by 2017  AHA/ACC is based primarily on SPRINT data which in my opinion has so much flaws it shouldn’t have been accepted for publication in the first place. !(Intentions and Aim of a study can never be questioned even by most prestigious journals you know !) The flaws begin right  from study design itself. Why diabetic population was excluded from the SPRINT trial is not clearly answered in the true interest of public.The Ironical argument is ...

This study, involving 140 patients with T2DM following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), evaluated the efficacy of aspirin upon concomitant use of prasugrel (10 mg/d) or ticagrelor (90 mg/d). Platelet reactivity was assessed by value of ADP‐induced light transmittance aggregometry (LTA) and vasodilator‐stimulated phosphoprotein phosphorylation‐platelet reactivity index (VASP‐PRI) at baseline, 7 and 30 days after randomized P2Y12 inhibitor treatment. ResultsThe study showed a decreased platelet reactivity after use of P2Y12 inhibitors (both P  .05). As for intragroup measurements, wh...

(Int J Gynaecol Obstet. 2017;138(1):84–88) Trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC) is often discouraged because of increased risk of adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes. However, few studies have focused on TOLAC with a subgroup of women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), which is known to complicate pregnancies, for example increased risk of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome. In the present study, authors assess rates of TOLAC and subsequent vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) among women with GDM and identify associated factors.
