Thus, targeting basil varieties for developing herbal medicines against non-communicable chronic diseases (NCDs) such as type 2 diabetes has significant merit. The aim of this study was to screen Asian basil varieties with therapeutic potential for type 2 diabetes targeting relevant phenolic bioactive-linked antioxidant, an...

AbstractIntroductionDiabetic foot ulcers develop with deviations in the distribution of plantar pressure. It is difficult to interpret any alteration in plantar pressure under different conditions of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The aim of this study was to gain a better insight into the variations in plantar pressure with increased duration of diabetes.MethodsPlantar pressure was examined in 1196 participants with or without T2DM. Subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) were assigned to control groups, and those with T2DM were divided into five groups according to diabetes dur...

ConclusionCholerae should be included in the differential diagnosis of any bacteremic skin and soft tissue infections especially in elderly, comorbid and immune-compromised patients. Well-timed, proper antibiotic and surgical treatments are important in management of the infection to decrease morbidity and mortality.

The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of ESWT on the healing of DFUs. The Cochrane Library, PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, China Biology Medicine and reference lists were searched for studies published up to December 2018. Randomized con...

Purpose of review The current review addresses one of the most common neurological disorders, diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN). DPN is debilitating, irreversible and dwarfs the prevalence of most other chronic disorders of the nervous system. Its complications include foot ulceration, amputation, falling and intractable neuropathic pain. Moreover, tight control of hyperglycemia reduces the incidence of DPN in type 1 diabetes mellitus but its role in type 2 diabetes mellitus is less clear. Recent findings New therapeutic options to reverse the development of DPN or its associated pain have been proposed but none have sign...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewDiabetic peripheral neuropathy eventually affects nearly 50% of adults with diabetes during their lifetime and is associated with substantial morbidity including pain, foot ulcers, and lower limb amputation. This review summarizes the epidemiology, risk factors, and management of diabetic peripheral neuropathy and related lower extremity complications.Recent FindingsThe prevalence of peripheral neuropathy is estimated to be between 6 and 51% among adults with diabetes depending on age, duration of diabetes, glucose control, and type 1 versus type 2 diabetes. The clinical manifestations are variable...

Abstract Chronic non-healing diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) with a recurrence rate of over 50% in 3 years account for more than 1,08000 non-traumatic lower extremity amputations. Reports of altered mineral status and their role in pathogenesis of diabetes are well documented. However, little is known regarding their status and impact on severity of complications like foot ulcer. A hospital-based case control study was conducted in 64 subjects aged 40-60 years, attending the Podiatric and the Diabetes clinic of the institutional hospitals. Study subjects included were 32 diagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes hav...
