Anthropometric and metabolic improvements in human type 2 diabetes after introduction of an Okinawan-based Nordic diet are not associated with changes in microbial diversity or SCFA concentrations.

Anthropometric and metabolic improvements in human type 2 diabetes after introduction of an Okinawan-based Nordic diet are not associated with changes in microbial diversity or SCFA concentrations. Int J Food Sci Nutr. 2017 Dec 04;:1-12 Authors: Huang F, Nilholm C, Roth B, Linninge C, Höglund P, Nyman M, Ohlsson B Abstract The Okinawan-based Nordic (O-BN) diet improves anthropometry and metabolism in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. The aim of this study was to study mechanisms behind improvements by examining Enterobacteriaceae abundance, microbial diversity, and concentrations of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). A secondary aim was exploring if metformin treatment affects microbiota or SCFAs. Thirty T2DM patients received the O-BN diet for 12 weeks. Faecal and blood samples were collected at baseline, 12 and 28 weeks. Although patients experienced weight loss and improved metabolic parameters, there were no significant changes in Enterobacteriaceae abundance or microbial diversity. Patients on metformin displayed higher Enterobacteriaceae abundance throughout the study (p = .008, p = .038, and p = .001, respectively). Isovaleric acid was decreased after 12 weeks (p = .018). Butyric acid was decreased at follow-up (p = .007). Improved anthropometry and metabolism in T2DM after introduction of the O-BN diet is not associated with changes in Enterobacteriacea...

Authors: Huang H, Shetty S, Bauer E, Lang K Abstract OBJECTIVE: To estimate the proportion of patients with moderate to severe chronic kidney disease (CKD) whose initial DPP4-i dosage was concordant with prescribing information (label) recommendations in the United States. METHODS: Adult patients with T2DM who initiated a DPP4-i (linagliptin, sitagliptin, saxagliptin) between Jan 1, 2011 and Jun 30, 2014 were identified using electronic medical records and administrative claims, with index date being the date of first observed DPP4-i treatment. Patients were required to have CKD Stage 3b, 4 or 5 (eGFR value

Authors: Bazargan-Hejazi S, Arroyo JS, Hsia S, Brojeni NR, Pan D Abstract Objective: To investigate: 1) the racial/ethnic disparities in meeting the recommended physical activity as measured by subjective vs objective measures in a national sample of individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus; and 2) the racial/ethnic differences with respect to the magnitude of the discrepancy between self-reported and objectively measured moderate-to-vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity (MVPA). Methods: We used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2003-06 to calculate and compare the ...

The incidence of cardiovascular disease is more than three times higher in patients with diabetes than in those without [1 –3]. The East–West study has shown that the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) in patients with diabetes and without a history of MI was similar to that of non-diabetic patients with a history of MI [4]. In addition, follow-up studies such as the subgroup analysis in the Action in Diabetes and Vascular disease: preterax and diamicron-MR Controlled Evaluation (ADVANCE) study revealed that albuminuria and a decrease in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) are further independent r...

In their recent observational study, Zhao et  al1 found similar incidence rates of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) in patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) versus other biliary diseases, and they reported lower PEP incidence rates as the severity of CP increased. The authors state that they “identified other possible risk and protective fact ors not examined before. The reduced incidence of PEP in CP patients was correlated with the presence of diabetes mellitus, pancreatic stones, and the use of ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy).” We would like to point out that our group had formerly evalu...

The relationship of sex hormones to obesity and inflammation has been extensively studied. Research on endogenous and exogenous sex steroids, including studies on animal models of metabolic syndrome (MetS), has indicated that sex hormones are involved in metabolic pathways relevant to MetS. Lower testosterone levels in men and higher levels in women increase risks of MetS and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Lower levels of sex hormone –binding globulin increase risks of MetS and T2DM in both sexes.
