This study seeks to use the relative refractory period, a sensitive parameter for detecting early change in peripheral polyneuropathies, as a tool for early detection of diabetic polyneuropathy. Design The relative refractory period of the median and sural sensory nerves was measured in 57 diabetic patients (male 31, female 26) and 23 healthy controls (male 16, female 7). The shortest interstimulus interval, where the latency of the response to the second stimulus recovers to normal, was defined as the relative refractory period. Results The relative refractory period of the median and sural nerves were significantly...

Authors: Robinson J, Lang B, Clippinger D Abstract The complexity and cost of diabetes care are barriers to a free health clinic attempting to provide quality care to uninsured patients. The alphabet strategy intervention was selected to increase the number of patients with diabetes receiving care according to the American Diabetes Association guidelines because it is simple and cost-effective. The project results revealed statistically significant increases in clinic uptake of diabetes education, blood pressure interventions, proteinuria, glucose control measurement and intervention, eye exams, and foot exams. The...

Low socioeconomic status and patient questionnaires in osteoarthritis: challenges to a "biomedical model" and value of a complementary "biopsychosocial model". Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2019 Sep-Oct;37 Suppl 120(5):18-23 Authors: Pincus T, Castrejon I Abstract Modern medical care is based largely on a paradigm known as a "biomedical model," in which "objective," high-technology biomarkers guide clinical care, and most health outcomes are determined by health professionals rather than individuals, using drugs as the primary therapy. The biomedical model is spectacularly...

Authors: Jeong MJ, Kwon H, Kim MJ, Han Y, Kwon TW, Cho YP Abstract Purpose: We aimed to compare clinical outcomes after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) between Korean patients with and without severe contralateral extracranial carotid stenosis or occlusion (SCSO). Methods: Between January 2004 and December 2014, a total of 661 patients who underwent 731 CEAs were stratified by SCSO (non-SCSO and SCSO groups) and analyzed retrospectively. The study outcomes included the occurrence of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), defined as stroke or myocardial infarction, and all-cause mortality during the perioperat...

Medtronic is taking some very big steps with artificial intelligence. The Dublin-based company is launching GI Genius – a system it said is the first to use AI to detect colorectal polyps. The product’s launch is taking place during United European Gastroenterology Week in Barcelona, Spain. GI Genius was developed by Cosmo Pharmaceuticals and has CE mark. Medtronic is bringing the solution to the market through a distribution agreement with the Dublin-based Cosmo Pharmaceuticals. The GI Genius module uses advanced artificial intelligence to highlight the presence of pre-cancerous lesions...

(CNN) — Should you eat before or after exercise in the morning? The debate has raged for years. The eat-first camp says food before exercise boosts blood sugars, giving the body fuel to increase the intensity and length of a workout. It also keeps you from being fatigued or dizzy. The eat-after camp says you burn more fat if you fast before exercise. A small UK study published Friday supports the latter point of view: In 30 obese or overweight men, those who exercised before breakfast burned twice the fat as men who ate breakfast before they worked out. That’s because exercising with no fuel forces the body to ...

Publication date: Available online 17 October 2019Source: Trends in Endocrinology &MetabolismAuthor(s): Daniela Stols-Gonçalves, G. Kees Hovingh, Max Nieuwdorp, Adriaan G. HolleboomThe prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is strongly increasing and may put patients at increased risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (asCVD). Both disease phenotypes often co-occur, in the case of obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus type 2, and the metabolic syndrome. We explore the pathogenesis of NAFLD, the epidemiology of asCVD in NAFLD patients, shared drivers of both phenotypes, and fact...

Publication date: Available online 17 October 2019Source: Canadian Journal of DiabetesAuthor(s): Alexandra Pouliot, Riham Elmahboubi, Catherine AdamAbstractBackgroundAt one Canadian university hospital, pregnant women have been routinely screened for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) with a 75g OGTT. Diagnostic plasma glucose thresholds were: fasting: ≥5.3mmol/l, 1-hr: ≥10.6mmol/l or 2-hr: ≥9.0mmol/l. In 2015, diagnostic thresholds were reduced to those recommended by the International Diabetes in Pregnancy Study Group (IADPSG): fasting ≥ 5.1mmol/l, 1-hr ≥10.0mmol/l or 2-hr ≥8.5mmol/l. However, subseque...

In this study, we developed an injectable nano-complex formulation for closed-loop insulin delivery after subcutaneous administration and release of insulin in response to increased blood glucose levels. The nano-complex was prepared by mixing oppositely charged chitosan and PLGA nanoparticles. PLGA nanoparticles were prepared using double-emulsion solvent diffusion method, and were loaded with glucose oxidase (GOx) and catalase (CAT) enzymes. These negatively charged particles decrease micro-environmental pH, by gluconic acid production in the glucose molecules presence. Positively charged chitosan nanoparticles were prep...
