TYPE 2 diabetes symptoms include increased thirst and hunger, fatigue and unexplained weight loss. The condition develops later in life, often due to risk factors including being overweight, not exercising regularly or having a poor diet.

The plasma biomarkers kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) and tumor necrosis factor receptors 1 and 2 (TNFR1/2) identify patients with diabetes at increased risk for loss of kidney function. Nadkarni and colleagues measured these biomarkers in 498 individuals of African ancestry with good baseline kidney function and 2 APOL1 risk alleles to see whether they could be used to more precisely discriminate who would develop an adverse kidney outcome (end-stage kidney disease or 40% decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate).

Environmental factors drive epigenetic programming. DNA methylation is the best studied modification transmitting epigenetic information. A study by Qiu et  al. examined potential epigenetic roots for the decline of renal function in Pima Indians. A genomewide survey of blood leukocytes uncovered differentially methylated DNA sites in regulatory regions of genes associated with chronic kidney disease. This longitudinal study provides the first clues o n epigenetic links between environmental factors and a high prevalence of diabetic kidney disease in Pima Indians.

Chronic conditions – such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease – take an enormous physical toll on Americans every year. They also take a significant economic toll on individudals and employers alike, through missed work days, lost productivity, and higher health care costs and premiums. In fact, according to the Milken Institute, the annual economic impact of chronic disease in the U.S. is $1.3 trillion, with lost productivity accounting for the vast majority of that cost ($1.1 trillion).…

AbstractThe goal of the present study was to evaluate the effect of Berberine chloride (BC) on lipid profile, oxidant status and insulin signaling molecules in Streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rat model. Diabetes was induced in rats by a single dose of intraperitoneal administration of STZ (40  mg/kg b.w). Diabetic rats were treated with BC (50 mg/kg b.w) and glibenclamide (6 mg/kg b.w) for 45 days. BC treated diabetic rats showed significant (p
