This study sought to examine whether disparities in health literacy, numeracy, self-care behaviors, and HbA1c persisted between non-Hispanic blacks and non-Hispanic whites after applying a robust adjustment for socioeconomic status (SES).MethodsFrom 2016 to 2018, adult patients with type 2 diabetes (N=444) were recruited from primary care clinics.

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...
