Type 2 diabetes: Working 37.5 hours per week may increase diabetes risk, reveals study

TYPE 2 diabetes is caused by having too much sugar in the blood, which happens due to problems with the body ’s production of insulin. There are some risk factors which can increase the chance of this happening, and one study has revealed working for a certain number of hours per week may raise the risk.

Mir, Zeba Siddiqi, Alina Zaidi, ZeashanHaider Zaidi, Farzana MahdiAbstractBackgroundDiabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder which can affects the body's ability to produce or use of the hormone insulin leads to high blood sugar levels and it may serves as a host of complications. Emerging evidence suggests that common and rare genetic polymorphisms can influence the risk of developing diabetic complications. We attempt to evaluate the association of (rs7903146 and rs290487) variants of TCF7L2 g...

AbstractDiabetic retinopathy is one of the most major causes of blindness and disability in diabetic patients and imposes very high cost on Health Care System. Studies conducted in the country showed different and inconsistent prevalence of the disease. The study aims to determine the overall prevalence of retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes in Iran through a systematic review and meta-analysis. The present study was conducted via meta-analysis method during March, 2000 to October, 2018. The articles related to the subject under study were obtained from Magiran, SID, Medline (PubMed), Science Direct, Scopus and Go...

AbstractThe prevalence of insulin resistance (IR) is increasing rapidly worldwide and it is a relevant health problem because it is associated with several diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disorders and cancer. Understanding the mechanisms involved in IR onset and progression will open new avenues for identifying biomarkers for preventing and treating IR and its co-diseases. Epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation are important factors that mediate the environmental effect in the genome by regulating gene expression and consequently its effect on the phenotype and the development of disease. Taking i...

Leonard Gray Conventional outpatient services are unlikely to meet burgeoning demand for diabetes services given increasing prevalence of diabetes, and resultant impact on the healthcare workforce and healthcare costs. Disruptive technologies (such as smartphone and wireless sensors) create an opportunity to redesign outpatient services. In collaboration, the Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology at Brisbane Princess Alexandra Hospital, the University of Queensland Centre for Health Services Research and the Australian e-Health Research Centre developed a mobile diabetes management system (MDMS) to support the mana...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe importance of composite risk factor control for reducing CVD risk in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) has gained increased attention and here we review the latest findings in the field.Recent FindingsThe Steno-2 study was the first to show that early intensive risk factor control could improve risk factor status and halve the CVD risk in patients with diabetes with lasting impact. A range of observational studies have added further insight to the importance of multiple risk factor control showing an incremental association between number of risk factors controlled and reduction in CVD risk. Noteworthy, a...

ConclusionsAerobic capacity and peak exercise D[a-v]O2 are impaired in obese OSA patients, suggesting abnormal peripheral oxygen extraction. EAT thickness is an independent marker of post-exercise HRR, which is a noninvasive marker of autonomic nerve dysfunction accompanying poor cardiovascular prognosis in obese patients.
