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]
This study describes the relationship between classic cardiovascular risk factors and inflammatory markers with BMI in a group of obese and non-obese subjects.Materials and MethodsObese subjects (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2;n = 576; mean ± SD BMI 43.8 ± 7.58 kg/m2) scheduled for bariatric surgery were included. The reference population consisted of non-obese volunteers (BMI
Conclusions Chinese diets that scored high on both the CDGI and the tAHEI showed similarly negative associations with high LDL-C risk, whereas only CDGI score was negatively related to diabetes risk in men.
Researchers from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Washington DC, found that ditching meat improves type 2 diabetics' insulin and cholesterol levels, preventing heart attacks.
ConclusionsIn post-menopausal women with T2DM, OPN might be a useful marker of fracture and worse lipid profile.
Abstract Background: To optimize the prevention of type 2 diabetes (T2D), high-risk obese subjects with the best metabolic recovery after a hypocaloric diet should be targeted. Apolipoprotein B lipoproteins (apoB lipoproteins) induce white adipose tissue (WAT) dysfunction, which in turn promotes postprandial hypertriglyceridemia, insulin resistance (IR), and hyperinsulinemia. Objective: The aim of this study was to explore whether high plasma apoB, or number of plasma apoB lipoproteins, identifies subjects who best ameliorate WAT dysfunction and related risk factors after a hypocaloric diet. Design: Fift...

IgE to the Mammalian Oligosaccharide Galactose-α-1,3-Galactose Is Associated With Increased Atheroma Volume and Plaques With Unstable Characteristics. Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2018 Jun 14;: Authors: Wilson JM, Nguyen AT, Schuyler AJ, Commins SP, Taylor AM, Platts-Mills TAE, McNamara CA Abstract OBJECTIVE: Emerging evidence suggests a link between coronary artery disease and type 2 immunity. We sought to test the hypothesis that IgE sensitization to the mammalian oligosaccharide galactose-α-1,3-galactose (α-Gal)-the target allergen of delayed anaphylaxis to red meat-is associate...
Conclusion: The double dose of TG has improved clinical efficacy, compared with the low dose, and the same safety profile.Kidney Blood Press Res 2018;43:931 –937
ConclusionIntervention promoting self-action such as the color record method in SMBG sustains a beneficial effect on metabolic parameters after the intervention. This long-term effect is helpful for people with type 2 diabetes to manage their diabetes ABCs (HbA1c, BP, cholesterol) and to prevent diabetic complications.Trial RegistrationUMIN clinical trials registry identifier, UMIN000006865.
CONCLUSION: Insulin resistance is closely associated with the risk for T2DM/dysglycemia. The accuracy of HOMA-IR levels is characterized by sex- and age-specific differences in identifying T2DM. In addition to insulin resistance index, insulin secretory function, and different MetS components should be considered in the detection of early T2DM, especially in elderly.
