Pre, peri and posttransplant diabetes mellitus

Purpose of review The leading cause of death in both chronic kidney disease (CKD) and renal transplant patients is cardiovascular events. Post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTx-DM), which is a major cardiovascular risk factor, is a metabolic disorder that affects 5.5–60.2% of renal allograft recipients by 1-year posttransplant (PTx). PTx-DM has been associated with a negative impact on patient and graft outcomes and survival. Recent findings Individuals who develop PTx-DM are usually prone to this condition prior to and/or after developing CKD. Genetic factors, obesity, inflammation, medications and CKD all are risk factors for PTx-diabetes mellitus. The path to development of disease continues PTx frequently augmented by the use of diabetogenic maintenance immunosuppressive and some nonimmunosuppressive medications. These risk factors are usually associated with an increase in insulin resistance, a decrease in insulin gene expression and/or β-cell dysfunction and apoptosis. Summary Some new anti-diabetes mellitus medications may help to improve the overall outcome; however, there is a real need for developing a preventive strategy. Identifying and targeting PTx-DM risk factors may help to guide the development of an effective programme. This could include the adoption of nondiabetogenic immunosuppressive protocols for high-risk patients.

ConclusionsOur results suggest that metformin users are more likely to initiate preventive therapies and engage in other healthy behaviours. Failure to account for these behaviours may introduce healthy user bias into studies evaluating the effects of oral antihyperglycemic therapies.RésuméObjectifsLe biais lié aux utilisateurs sains selon lequel les patients ayant recours aux soins de santé sont plus susceptibles d'entreprendre des traitements préventifs et d'adopter des comportements sains liés au mode de vie est bien connu dans les études observationnelles, particuli&egra...

This study is of potential translational significance in determining the role of gut microbiota-mediated bile acid metabolism in modulating diet-induced glucose intolerance and hepatic steatosis in the hamster.Graphical abstractIn the antibiotic-treated hamsters, hepatic CYP7B1-mediated alternative bile acid synthesis was activated. In hamsters, intestinal TβMCA accumulated and secondary bile acid levels were downregulated after gut microbiota depletion. Gut microbiota depletion-derived bile acid modulation results in intestinal FXR suppression and improvements of metabolic disorders in HFD-fed hamsters.

Abstract Metabolic syndrome (MS) is characterized by a combination of cardiovascular (CV) risk factors (hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity, and alterations in glucose homeostasis). Insulin resistance is suggested to be the common pathogenic background. This syndrome is also a risk factor for diabetes and chronic kidney disease. In renal transplant recipients, MS has been shown to be an independent risk factor for chronic allograft dysfunction, graft failure, new-onset diabetes, and CV disease. We performed a cross-sectional study on 106 stable renal transplant recipients to detect MS between January 2013 and Augu...

Background Globally there is an increase in incidence of chronic kidney diseases (CKDs). Diabetes mellitus (DM), hypertension and stone diseases are the major risk factors for CKD. We organized kidney disease screening camps in a semi-urban population of Gujarat, India on the occasion of World Kidney Day (WKD). Methods Voluntary participants from six towns were screened. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was calculated by the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease formula and CKD was defined as an eGFR
