Introduction: To date, the Mediterranean diet is the first therapeutic approach for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Conversation Maps ™ (C-Maps™) are interactive educational tools on diabetes, with a strong visual impact. The “Healthy Eating and Keeping Active” provides for a healthy eating style and physical activity in order to better handle diabetes. The aim of the study has been to evaluate the impact on changing eatin g habits and increasing the knowledge of the disease with the group therapeutic education through the use of C-Maps™ tool.

Conclusion: We studied 81 type 2 diabetic patients, with established cardiovascular disease, consecutively admitted to our outpatient clinic in the Division of Diabetes of La Paz Hospital. We collected clinic and demographic data, ABI and TBI were measured and at the same time a carotid Doppler ultrasound was performed. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to investigate the association of ABI and TBI with carotid disease. We found a negative correlation between TBI and internal carotid artery peak systolic velocity (ICA PSV) (r = -0,300, p= 0,007), common carotid artery resistance index (CCA RI) (r = -0,232, p= 0,...

Authors: Kumar S, Gupta A, Sameja P, Patel I, Gupta S Abstract Diabetes mellitus a disease with various macro and micro vascular complications due to its various metabolic dysregulations, is well known to involve lungs in long run in both type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus, causing tremendous burden on health care system. Common simple lung function tests alone are likely to underestimate the prevalence and degree of lung dysfunction in diabetes, but newer noninvasive tests of lung mechanical function provide a more sensitive assessment of peripheral airway function, hence by establishing a marker and risk factors for ...

P-IGT (positive IGT on two oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT), T-IGT (IGT in first OGTT and normal glucose tolerance (NGT) in the 2nd OGTT). Methods: The samples were collected from a randomized controlled diabetes prevention study. The p...

Methods: This was a multicentre, prospective, observational consecutive case series study. Patients diagnosed with three types of CNV of nAMD were treated in a fixed regimen (3 injections every 4&thinsp...

Empagliflozin (EMPA), a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, was shown to attenuate cardiovascular and renal morbidity in patients with type 2 diabetes in the EMPA-REG Outcome trial. EMPA decreased the risk of incident or worsening nephropathy, progression to macroalbuminuria, and the combined endpoint of doubling of serum creatinine and need for renal replacement therapy. This is due, in part, to a reduction in glomerular hypertension. Mayer and colleagues wondered whether EMPA was still effective in patients taking commonly used background medications that also affect glomerular hemodynamics.
