Therefore, fungal pathogens should be considered in patients unresponsive to long-term antibiotic therapy. Early detection of fungal infections in high-risk individuals is critical for the prevention of severe consequences such as foot amputation. PMID: 30761877 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: Understanding the normal β-cell function and identifying the defects in β-cell function that lead to the development of diabetes will generate new therapeutic targets PMID: 30761839 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Wu HX, Tang J, Li L, Liu SP, Zhou ZG, Yang JX, Yan DW, Zhou HD Abstract Type 2 diabetic patients are becoming younger and having a tendency to family aggregation, they are easily suspected as maturity-onset diabetes of young (MODY) in the outpatient clinic and send to genetic testing. 9 diabetic families were compared in our outpatient clinic who met the primary diagnosis criteria of MODY. Detailed clinical features and laboratory data including gene sequence were collected and analyzed. The patients met the primary clinical diagnostic criteria of MODY for genetic testing at the first look. However, member...
CONCLUSIONS: Ertugliflozin was well tolerated and provided clinically meaningful glycemic control and durable reductions in body weight and SBP over 104 weeks. Clinicaltrials.gov identifier NCT01999218. PMID: 30760125 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We investigated the association of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] with IR and β-cell function in middle-aged participants.MethodsWe enrolled 90 controls and 90 T2DM patients of both genders aged 30–50 y. Serum 25(OH)D, fasting plasma insulin (FPI), fasting plasma glucose (FPG), HbA1c, and lipid profile were measured by standard methods...
Authors: Pouwels S, Topal B, Knook MT, Celik A, Sundbom M, Ribeiro R, Parmar C, Ugale S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Obesity, defined as a Body Mass Index (BMI) of ≥30 kg/m2, is the most common chronic metabolic disease worldwide and its prevalence has been strongly increasing. Obesity is associated with various diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Regarding heart rhythm disorders, obesity is associated with an increase in atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice. AF is associated with an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Obesity, a...
