Pheochromocytoma presenting with severe hyperglycemia and metabolic acidosis following intra-articular glucocorticoid administration: a case report
ConclusionsThis case illustrates that intra-articular glucocorticoid administration can induce a pheochromocytoma crisis and an increase in hyperglycemia, and that pheochromocytoma crisis can resemble the clinical picture of fulminant type 1 diabetes mellitus owing to severe hyperglycemia with metabolic acidosis and normal glycosylated hemoglobin levels, especially under the influence of glucocorticoid.
Allostasis and allostatic load are new concepts explaining the changes in body stemming from chronic stress. These concepts are explained with the assessment of metabolic, cardiovascular, inflammatory, and neuroendocrine systems. Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease with the fluctuations in fasting plasma glucose, and also in other various biomarkers and poses a risk forother chronic diseases. The course and duration of the disease, genetic factors, and environmental factors, including nutrition, aggravate these complications. Allostatic load is a multi-system assessment. Individuals’ compliance with th...
Conclusion: The results of present study show that hydroalcoholic extract of Z.J has an inhibitory effect on basal cardiovascular parameters and its best effects have been shown in dose 200 mg/kg.
Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: Journal of Functional FoodsAuthor(s): Shigenobu Ina, Aya Hamada, Hanae Nakamura, Yusuke Yamaguchi, Hitoshi Kumagai, Hitomi KumagaiAbstractThe mechanism of the suppressive effect of rice albumin (RA) on postprandial hyperglycemia after glucose loading was investigated. In order to examine if small peptides derived from RA are responsible for prevention of postprandial hyperglycemia, RA was hydrolysed to indigestible high-molecular-weight peptides (HMP) and low-molecular-weight peptides (LMP) by trypsin, HMP and LMP being fractionated by gel-filtration chromatography...

CONCLUSIONS: The practice of self-medication with analgesics is frequent among patients with chronic pain, which may be due to the underprescription of more potent analgesics, such as opioids. It can also be said that, given the data presented, there is no crisis of recreational opioid use in the studied population. PMID: 31703816 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
TYPE 2 diabetes can seem like a daunting diagnosis because it requires a person to overhaul aspects of their lifestyle to stave off the threat of rising blood sugar levels. Fortunately, making healthier dietary decisions can help to regulate blood sugar levels, and evidence backs drinking a particular tea to do just that.
AbstractIntroductionOral semaglutide is the first orally administered glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, and has been evaluated in the PIONEER clinical trial program. These trials assessed the proportions of patients achieving single and composite endpoints, encompassing glycemic control [defined in terms of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c)], weight loss, and hypoglycemia. The present study assessed the cost of control with oral semaglutide versus empagliflozin, sitagliptin, and liraglutide in the US.MethodsFour endpoints were evaluated: (1) HbA1c ≤ 6.5%; (2) HbA1c
