Anogenital skin care for elderly remains an umbrella term concerning protective and non-interventional regimens, particularly for ordinary diaper users. Diapers provide an anxiety relief for excretion, but instead raise a prevalence of genital candidiasis. Our recent investigation has demonstrated the favorable preventive effect of topical washing with miconazole nitrate-containing soap to diaper candidiasis. We extended this work to the therapeutic benefit of the antifungal soap in substantial cases with genital candidiasis, who had at least 1 additional risk factor including diarrhea, cerebrovascular diseases, dementia, ...

Authors: Furuya F, Ishii T, Kitamura K Abstract BACKGROUND: From a global perspective, diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is the leading cause of not only chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease but also cardiovascular disease (CVD). SUMMARY: In the early stages of diabetes, patients have a high risk of developing microvascular complications, loss of kidney function, CVD, infection, and death. Hyperglycemia, free fatty acids, and insulin resistance induce metabolic imbalance and DKD initiation. Inflammation is recognized to play a role in DKD pathogenesis. Our recent study indicated that angiopoietin-like...
