GIP is released in response to glucose or fat absorption and acts on the GIP receptor (GIPR) to potentiate insulin release from pancreatic beta cells. GIP has also been shown to promote beta cell survival and stimulate the release of GLP-1 from islet alpha cells. There is now evidence to suggest ...

Authors: Xiong Q, Liu J, Xu Y Abstract With the deepening of the researches on uric acid, especially in the study of metabolic diseases, uric acid has been found to be closely related to obesity, metabolic syndrome, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes, and other metabolic diseases. Uric acid causes a series of pathophysiological changes through inflammation, oxidative stress, vascular endothelial injury, and so on and thus subsequently promotes the occurrence and development of diseases. This review confirmed the positive correlation between uric acid and diabetes mellitus and its chronic complications throu...

AR, López-Hernández Y Abstract Chronic exposure to arsenic (As), whether directly through the consumption of contaminated drinking water or indirectly through the daily intake of As-contaminated food, is a health threat for more than 150 million people worldwide. Epidemiological studies found an association between chronic consumption of As and several pathologies, the most common being cancer-related disorders. However, As consumption has also been associated with metabolic disorders that could lead to diverse pathologies, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and obesi...
