Iron deficiency in chronic kidney disease patients with diabetes mellitus

Publication date: Available online 22 May 2018Source: Diabetes &Metabolic Syndrome: Clinical Research &ReviewsAuthor(s): Nicolas Roberto Robles, Juan Lucio Ramos, Edgar Chavez, Boris Gonzalez Candia, Miguel Angel Bayo, Antonio Cidoncha, Juan Lopez Gomez, Juan Jose CuberoAbstractBackgroundsIron deficiency has been studied extensively in patients with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis therapy. However, few studies looked at iron treatment in the non-dialysis chronic kidney disease population.MethodsFive hundred and eighty patients were studied (247 were diabetic persons). Patients were divided into 4 groups: non-diabetic subjects without CKD, non-diabetic ones with GFR

Authors: Jung O, Glachs D, Strohmeier F, Mulrenin R, Huisman S, Smith I, van Keulen H, Sont J, Ploessnig M Abstract The number of people with diabetes is increasing in every European country and like all chronic diseases it cannot be cured. However, patient empowerment is an acknowledged strategy for improving the patients' health situation. This paper describes the Action Plan Engine developed as a tool for diabetes patients in the POWER2DM project. The Action Plan Engine offers a guided workflow based on treatment goals and activities. A periodic review evaluates how successful a patient has fulfilled these goals...

Authors: Denecke K, Jolo P, Sevinc B, Nüssli S Abstract Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease that affects many people in Switzerland and around the world. Once diagnosed, a patient has to continuously monitor blood glucose, manage medications or inject insulin. Technical skills and competencies as well as knowledge on disease management have to be acquired right after being diagnosed. Diabetes consultants support patients in this process and provide educational material. While the process of generating patient-tailored material is currently complex and time consuming, in future, the eDiabetes platform c...

KhodakovAbstractLight olefins are important products of high temperature Fischer-Tropsch synthesis over iron catalysts. In this paper, we found that the catalytic performance of iron catalysts was strongly affected by iron nanoparticle size, their encapsulation inside of carbon nanotubes and promotion with bismuth or lead. The presence of promoters and iron nanoparticle confinement leads to a major increase in the reaction rate. A gradual increase ...

ConclusionsHuman IGF-1 gene may be a candidate gene for GDM and T2DM risk, as our study suggests a significant association between the IGF-I rs35767 and rs5742612 polymorphisms and the risk of T2DM and GDM in pregnant women, whereas there was no association for rs2288377.

Conclusions: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a safe and effective procedure, with good results in the short and medium term. Long-term follow-up reveals a tendency to weight regain after approximately 2 years from primary surgery, with the need for revisional surgery in some cases. PMID: 31118990 [PubMed]

ConclusionsMGD in type 2 diabetic patients is more severe compared with nondiabetic patients. Longer duration of diabetes is associated with major symptoms and changes in MG. Diabetic group showed major changes in lids and tear function, accounting for evaporative dry eye and presenting a high degree of correlation with MG inflammation and obstruction.ResumenObjetivoEvaluar las glándulas de Meibomio, la superficie ocular y la función de la lágrima en pacientes con diabetes tipo 2, y estudiar la correlación entre estas situaciones.MétodosEstudio prospectivo de 76 varones, 37 de ellos con d...

CONCLUSIONS Anemia was more common in diabetic CKD patients. Diabetes mellitus was independently associated with iron deficiency. Surprisingly, diminished iron availability was not more frequent in diabetic patients. The physio-pathological mechanisms that could explain these findings remain to be elucidated.
