Albatineh, Reza Ghanei GheshlaghAbstractHealth literacy is one of the most important determinants of health. Limited health literacy can leads to reduced adherence to treatment, repeated hospitalizations, and increased diseases complications. Several studies on health literacy among Iranian patients with type 2 diabetes have reported different prevalences of health literacy. The present study is aimed to determ...

You likely know that after several years, type 2 diabetes commonly leads to serious complications. Common complications include diabetic retinopathy, neuropathy, kidney disease and kidney failure, heart disease, and increased potential for dementia, not to mention an average of 8 years lost off your life. Prescription drugs have only a modest effect on reducing risk, sometimes none, for these complications. But there is a way to dramatically reduce potential for diabetic complications: become a NON-diabetic. We’ve done it many times, as have others. But you cannot accomplish this by just following conventional diets...

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2019Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Christine Dammann, Claudia Stapelfeld, Edmund MaserAbstractThe microsomal enzyme 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) interconverts glucocorticoid receptor-inert cortisone (11-dehydrocorticosterone in rodents) to its receptor-active form cortisol (corticosterone in rodents). Thus, 11β-HSD1 amplifies glucocorticoid action at the tissue level. According to the current literature, dysregulation of glucocorticoid signaling may contribute to the pathogenesis of the metabolic syndrome in which regener...

Authors: Wu X Abstract In the present study, candidate genes affected by rosiglitazone to exert glycemic control in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and associated with its adverse cardiovascular effects were identified using a bioinformatics analysis. The gene expression profiles of the dataset GSE36875 from the Gene Expression Omnibus database, including heart samples from 5 non-diabetic control mice (NC), 5 untreated diabetic mice (NH) and 5 rosiglitazone-treated diabetic mice (TH), were used to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in the NC vs. NH, NC vs. TH and TH vs. NH groups. Subse...

Authors: Huang Q, Liu C, Li JR, Zhang L, Huang FC, Wang D, Luo YJ Abstract Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is characterized by chronic hyperglycemia, damaged insulin secretion and insulin resistance with high morbidity and mortality. Liraglutide (liragl) and insulin are effective hypoglycemic agents used in T2DM treatment. The potential effect of liragl in combination with insulin on T2DM remains unclear. The aim of the current study was to explore effects of liragl combined with insulin on glycolipid metabolism and cardiovascular function in rats with diabetes. A diabetes model was established in Sprague Dawley ra...

The case against dessert seems open and shut. The sugar that makes treats so sweet has been linked to weight gain and chronic diseases ranging from type 2 diabetes to cancer; many desserts also have an abundance of saturated fats, which potentially harm the heart, and plenty of empty calories. But some studies are suggesting that having dessert every once in a while — the real, indulgent kind, not the cut-up fresh-fruit kind — may actually be a useful tool for eating more healthfully, when it’s used strategically. It turns out that picking dessert first — instead of after a meal, like most of us do ...

When it comes to low-calorie sweeteners, you have a lot of choices. There’s the blue one, the pink one, the yellow one, or the green one. Whichever one you choose, know that scientists have probably studied it extensively. What they’ve found may surprise you. Artificial and other non-caloric sweeteners: The major players The marketers for artificial sweeteners have color-coded their products, but they differ in some important ways beyond their packaging. In the US, the most popular FDA-approved non-sugar sweeteners (NSSs) and their most common packaging color are: aspartame (blue): examples include Nutrasweet ...
