Conclusions: These findings for the first time demonstrate that cerebral ischemia induces a delayed and sustained augmentation of brain infiltration and activation of neutrophils and lymphocytes in type 2 diabetic mice and these altered immune responses might contribute to the severer brain tissue damage and worse neurological outcomes of diabetes stroke, which warrants further investigation.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: This umbrella review provides an overview of the consistency and gaps in the evidence base on eggs and cardiometabolic health. DESIGN: PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, the Nutrition Evidence Systematic Review and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality databases were screened for evidence-based reviews in English that assessed human studies on egg consumption and cardiometabolic outcomes. RESULTS: Seven systematic reviews and fifteen meta-analyses were identified, with eighteen of these published since 2015. Overall, the systematic reviews were of low quality, while meta-a...

Purpose of review In recent years, there have been several cardiovascular outcomes trials (CVOT) of two new classes of glucose-lowering medications: sodium–glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2-i) and glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RA). It is important examine their potential for cardiovascular benefit and possible side effects among patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) mellitus. Recent findings The current article reviews the findings of recent CVOT of SGLT2-i and GLP-1 RA, including their impact on cardiovascular events and relevant side effects. Summary For all T2D patients, with or wi...

Could just 10 foods substantially impact your risk of dying from a cardiometabolic disease (CMD) like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or stroke? Maybe. A study published in JAMA provides some insight into the degree to which 10 specific foods and nutrients affect the risk of dying from CMD. The study found that in 2012, eating suboptimal levels of 10 foods or nutrients — too much of some and not enough of others — was associated with more than 45% of deaths due to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. 10 foods associated with nearly half of CMD deaths The researchers developed a risk assessment model that...

AbstractIntroductionThe results of recently completed cardiovascular outcomes trials in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) suggest that sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors and glucagon-like peptide (GLP) 1 receptor agonists have enhanced cardioprotective properties in patients with established cardiovascular disease (eCVD), but to a lesser degree in those without eCVD. SGLT2 inhibitors appear to be particularly beneficial in patients with heart failure. As recent data for the UK are lacking, we undertook to identify the percentage of T2DM patients with eCVD and heart failure in the UK.MethodsThis w...

AbstractObjectivePatients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) show more executive dysfunction than nondiabetics. However, how long poor glycemic control affects executive function remains unclear. Thus, we aimed to investigate the relationships in a cross-sectional study.MethodsWe studied 118 T2DM outpatients (age,  ≥ 60 years; excluding history of stroke, dementia and severe hypoglycemia). HbA1c values were recorded every ≤ 12 weeks for ≥ 5 years. All patients underwent verbal-fluency tests (reflecting executive function) and Mini-Mental State Examination ...
