TYPE 2 diabetes is a common condition yet many people in the UK will not realise they have it because the symptoms do not necessarily make you feel unwell. Symptoms are caused by consistently high blood sugar levels, and, overtime, this can affect different parts of the body, including the shoulder.

This study explores the hypoglycemic effect ofent-3α-formylabieta-8(14),13(15)-dien-16,12β-olide and studied its mechanism. The insulin response of HepG2 cells followingent-3α-formylabieta-8(14),13(15)-dien-16,12β-olide treatment, as a model for liver cancer cells, was assessed. The results demonstrated that hyperglycemia resulted in a significant increase in the levels of insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1) serine phosphorylation and decrease in Akt phosphorylation. High glucose also inhibited the phosphorylation of insulin-dependent GSK3β.ent-3α-Formylabieta-8(14),13(15)-dien-16,12β...

AbstractTherapeutic inertia is a substantial obstacle to the initiation of insulin therapy in people with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes (T2D). This effect has in part been perpetuated by concerns over the impact of a burdensome regimen and the increased risk of hypoglycemia and body weight gain often associated with insulin use. An effective, yet simple, less burdensome regimen with a lower risk of body weight gain and hypoglycemia compared with an insulin-only regimen, may help to address these concerns more effectively. We review the available clinical and real-world data on IDegLira, a once-daily, injectable, fixed-ratio...

This study included 1665 participants from a Mexican National Health Survey carried out in the year 2000. It is a probabilistic complex sample survey of households, which comprises representative data at a national level. 103 previously reported SNPs associated with different dyslipidemias or T2D were genotyped and used to compute polygenic risk scores. We found that the previously known variants associated with dyslipidemias explain at most 7% of the total risk variance of lipid levels. In contrast, the known genetic risk component for T2D explained a negligible amount of variance (0.1%). Notably, variants derived from th...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is one of the most prevalent endocrine diseases in the world. Recent studies have shown that dysbiosis of the gut microbiota may be an important contributor to T2DM pathogenesis. However, the mechanisms underlying the roles of the gut microbiome and fecal metabolome in T2DM have not been characterized. Recently, the Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rat model of T2DM was developed to study the clinical symptoms and characteristics of human T2DM. To further characterize T2DM pathogenesis, we combined multi-omics techniques, including 16S rRNA gene sequencing, metagenomic sequencing, and metabolomics, to ana...

This study aimed to design a simple surrogate marker (i.e., predictor) of the minimal model glucose effectiveness (SG), namely calculated SG (CSG), from a short insulin-modified intravenous glucose tolerance test (IM-IVGTT), and then to apply it to study women with previous gestational diabetes mellitus (pGDM). METHODS: CSG was designed using the stepwise model selection approach on a population of subjects (n=181) ranging from normal tolerance to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). CSG was then tested on a population of women with pGDM (n=57). Each subject underwent a 3-hour IM-IVGTT; women with pGDM were observed early ...
