Conclusionsthe anti-obesity effect of liraglutide occurs through adaptive thermogenesis and may act through different cell signaling pathways in fat and skeletal muscle tissue. Liraglutide induces beige fat development partially through the AMPK-SIRT-1-PGC1- α cell signaling pathway. Therefore, liraglutide is a potential medication for obesity prevention and in targeting pre-diabetics.

Authors: Palacios OM, Kramer M, Maki KC Abstract INTRODUCTION: Insulin resistance (IR) and pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction are core pathophysiologic features of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Select lifestyle and pharmacologic interventions, including weight loss, physical activity, a Mediterranean diet intervention, and hypoglycemic agents, have been shown to prevent or delay T2DM. However, dietary factors other than weight loss may also impact risk, mainly through effects to enhance insulin sensitivity, although some may also directly or indirectly impact pancreatic beta-cell function. Areas covered: A literat...

Authors: Haddad JA, Haddad AN Abstract There is today an exponential increase in prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), especially in young people. This downward shift in age of onset of T2DM has been shown by abundant evidence to be due to an increase in obesity among the young, the latter mainly attributable to unhealthy dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle. It is therefore obvious that the prevention of diabetes rather its treatment is of is paramount importance. In the past decade, because concerns about the safety of antidiabetic agents took precedence over the issue of efficacy, almost all studies...

ConclusionTo our knowledge, this is the first study to report the outcomes of NYPH for non-resolving PMSHH in Saudi cases. In this small cases series, the procedure seems to be safe, effective, simple, cheap, and non-invasive treatment modality for this disorder that is conducted in the outpatient setting. We think it should be considered as a first option for cases of SHH covering the fovea due to various aetiologies.

Hein L Abstract Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) has been associated with increased platelet reactivity as well as increased levels of platelet RNAs in plasma. Here, we sought to evaluate whether the platelet transcriptome is altered in the presence of uncontrolled DM. Methods: Next-generation sequencing (NGS) was performed on platelet RNA for 5 patients with uncontrolled DM (HbA1c 9.0%) and 5 control patients (HbA1c 5.5%) with otherwise similar clinical characteristics. RNA was isolated from leucocyte-depleted platelet-rich plasma. Libraries of platelet RNAs were created separately for long RNAs after rib...
