rzelak Endometriosis is a common disease in women of reproductive age, and its pathogenesis seems to be largely affected by hormone imbalance, inflammation, oxidative stress, and autophagy dysregulation. These pathophysiological disturbances interact with one another through mechanisms that are still awaiting elucidation. The aim of this article is to present current knowledge regarding the possibilities of using metformin in the pharmacological treatment of endometriosis. Metformin is an insulin sensitizer widely used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The pleiotropic effects of metformin are mainly exerte...

. Brown The prevalence of obesity is progressively increasing along with the potential high risk for insulin resistance and development of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Obesity is associated with increased risk of many malignancies, and hyperinsulinemia has been proposed to be a link between obesity and cancer development. The incidence of thyroid cancer is also increasing, making this cancer the most common endocrine malignancy. There is some evidence of associations between obesity, insulin resistance and/or diabetes with thyroid proliferative disorders, including thyroid cancer. However, the etiology of such an associat...

Diabetol Int. 2021 Jun 29;13(1):49-65. doi: 10.1007/s13340-021-00519-0. eCollection 2022 Jan.ABSTRACTType 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic disease prevalent in the world, and it is also one of the overall factors leading to overall morbidity and mortality. Throughout Asia, the proportion of people with T2DM and obesity has increased and this growth rate shows no signs of slowing down. Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) can specifically treat insulin resistance and improve metabolic syndrome, including rosiglitazone, troglitazone and pioglitazone, which are peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonists. These dru...

The benefits of breastfeeding for both the mother and the child are well established, and unless there are clear contraindications, women are encouraged to breastfeed [1, 2]. Breastfeeding in mothers is associated with a reduced risk for type 2 diabetes, breast cancer, and ovarian cancer. In addition, the child has reduced risks for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and respiratory tract infections. Moreover, it has positive emotional and psychological effects on both [3]. Despite this knowledge and recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics for exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months [4], the initiation a...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results support a causal effect of higher fasting insulin, but not glucose traits or type-2 diabetes, on increased colorectal cancer risk. This suggests that pharmacological or lifestyle interventions that lower circulating insulin levels may be beneficial in preventing colorectal tumorigenesis.PMID:35048991 | DOI:10.1093/jnci/djac011

CONCLUSION: This study reinforces a role for family history of non-neuroendocrine GEP cancer, T2DM and obesity as independent risk factors for GEP-NENs and suggests a role of metformin as a protective factor in T2DM subjects. If confirmed, these findings could have a significant impact on prevention strategies for GEP-NENs.PMID:35040099 | DOI:10.1007/s40618-021-01715-0
