A Clinical, Biochemical Profile of Type-2 Diabetes in Women with Special Reference to Vitamin-D Status in Obese and Non-Obese.

A Clinical, Biochemical Profile of Type-2 Diabetes in Women with Special Reference to Vitamin-D Status in Obese and Non-Obese. J Assoc Physicians India. 2018 Dec;66(12):21-24 Authors: Patil MB, Ragav ED Abstract Introduction: Type-2 Diabetes is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by variable degrees of insulin resistance, impaired insulin secretion, and increased glucose production. Obese diabetic patients have 13.5% more chances of developing diabetic complications compared to non - obese diabetic patients. Vitamin D has found to be deficient in diabetic patient and it's role in insulin regulation. Obese females are more prone to develop diabetic complications and hypovitaminosis-D. Materials and Method: Total of 156 female diabetic patients aged 30 to 60 years who are a case of type-2 diabetes mellitus seen in Rajarajeswari Medical College and Hospital were clinically evaluated including anthropometric measurements are done, namely height, weight, waist-hip ratio, tested for vitamin-D levels and other necessary diabetes related investigations were carried out. Result: Among the studies 156 patients, Mean age of study group: 48.47±9.56 years. Mean duration of diabetes in the study population: ± SD: 5.10±4.36 years mean BMI was 24.97±4.16.Mean waist circumference: 98.93±12.18 cm, Mean Waist-Hip ratio: 0.98±0.08. Mean FBS: 202.73±81.73 mg/dl, Mean PPBS: 280.99±94.14 mg/dl, Mean Hb...

Authors: Lundström P, Caidahl K, Eriksson MJ, Fritz T, Krook A, Zierath JR, Rickenlund A Abstract Background: Sun exposure is the main driver of vitamin D synthesis. High latitude, obesity, and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are all risk factors for vitamin D deficiency. However, the seasonal variation in vitamin D concentrations (25[OH]D) in such populations before and after sun exposure during the summer is unknown. Therefore, we investigated 25[OH]D status before and after two consecutive summers in high latitude and its associations with body fat, sex, and glucose metabolism. Methods: 158 participants...

SummaryVitamin D deficiency has been implicated in the pathophysiology of cardiometabolic disorders including obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases and polycystic ovary syndrome. Despite a large number of experimental and observational studies supporting a role for vitamin D in these pathologies, randomized controlled trials have reported little to no effect of vitamin D supplementation in the prevention or treatment of these disorders, although some results remain ambiguous. Polymorphisms in genes related to vitamin D metabolism, particularly in the vitamin D receptor and binding protein and the metab...

Abstract Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and thyroid diseases among type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. Methods: This was a cohort case and control study, 546 T2DM patients and 546 control study participants were enrolled, aged between 25 and 65 years. The subjects were also investigated for fasting blood glucose levels (FBG), post prandial glucose (PPG,) glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), T3, T4, and presence of other comorbid conditions. Thyroid fine needle aspiration biopsy was suggested to patients wh...

Early studies in patients with type 1 diabetes suggested a 10-fold increase in the hip fracture risk compared to nondiabetic controls. Metaanalyses published more recently indicate a somewhat smaller risk increase, with odds ratios of 6 to 7. Diminished bone mineral density is among the contributors to the increa...

Abstract Overweight and obesity according to the definition of the WHO are considered as an abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health. Studies comparing fracture incidence in obese and non-obese individuals have demonstrated that obesity, defined on the basis of body mass index (BMI), is associated with increased risk of fracture at some sites but seems to be protective at others. The results of the studies are influenced by the distribution of BMI in the population studied; for example, in cohorts with a low prevalence of obesity, a predilection for certain fracture sites in obese individuals ...
