Tiaolipiwei Acupuncture Reduces Albuminuria by Alleviating Podocyte Lesions in a Rat Model of Diabetic Nephropathy.

Conclusion: Our study suggests that Tiaolipiwei acupuncture ameliorates podocyte lesions to reduce albuminuria and prevent the progression of T2DN in a rat model. PMID: 29849693 [PubMed]

Using newly available, nationally representative data, we assessed how cardiovascular risk factors are distributed across subpopulations within South Africa and identified which cardiovascular treatments should be prioritised.MethodsWe created a demographically represe...

CONCLUSIONS: Twelve-week pegbelfermin treatment did not impact HbA1c concentrations, but QW and higher daily doses were associated with improved metabolic parameters and fibrosis biomarkers in patients with obesity and T2DM predisposed to fatty liver. These results support evaluation of pegbelfermin in patients with obesity-related metabolic diseases (e.g., nonalcoholic steatohepatitis). PMID: 30520566 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Roberts BackgroundObesity increases the risk for developing gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and preeclampsia (PE), which both associate with increased risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women in later life. In the general population, metabolic syndrome (MetS) associates with T2DM and CVD. The impact of maternal MetS on pregnancy outcomes, in nulliparous pregnant women, has not been invest...

Authors: Wang J, Zhang M, Liu Z, Wang X, Pang Y, Lu Y, Liu Z Abstract BACKGROUND: To observe the clinical features of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients with ketosis as the initial symptom, and investigate its differences from clinical features of non-ketotic T2DM patients. METHODS: A total of 385 T2DM patients treated in our hospital from 2014 to 2017 were selected and divided into ketosis-prone T2DM group and non-ketotic T2DM group. Ketosis-prone T2DM patients refer to DM patients with the urine ketone body++ or above or the blood ketone body ≥1.0 mmol/L when treated. Fasting venous blood was collect...

AshrafAbstractAimSignificant knowledge gaps exist regarding lipoprotein profiles in children with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The primary objective was to analyze the type and nature of lipoprotein abnormalities present in children with T2DM and to identify determinants of adverse lipoprotein profiles. The secondary objective was to assess associations with elevated glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C), i.e.,

CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that silymarin supplements have beneficial effects on metabolic status and oxidative stress among patients with T2DM. However, there is currently insufficient evidence to make firm conclusions about the full efficacy of supplementation. PMID: 30477860 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractEnergy imbalance resulting from high calorie food intake and insufficient metabolic activity leads to increased body mass index (BMI) and sets the stage for metabolic derangement influencing lipid and carbohydrate metabolism and ultimately leading to insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and type 2 diabetes. 70% of cardiovascular disease (CVD) deaths occur in patients with diabetes. Environment-induced physiological perturbations trigger epigenetic changes through chromatin modification and leads to type 2 diabetes and progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and CVD. Thus, in terms of disease progressio...
