Religious Faith and Diabetes Health Beliefs in a Homeless Population: A Qualitative Study

ABSTRACT: This participatory action research project explored the perspectives and challenges of homeless persons living with, or at risk for, type 2 diabetes. Because these persons were sheltered in and served by a church, their perspectives provide understanding about how religious faith may influence diabetes self-management.

This study evaluated the effect of combined inositol hexakisphosphate (IP6) and inositol supplement on organ weight, intestinal ATPase activities, complete blood count, and serum analytes in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced type 2 diabetic rats. High-fat diet and a single intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (35 mg/kg body weight) were used to induce type 2 diabetes mellitus in Sprague-Dawley rats. The diabetic groups were then treated with either combined IP6 and inositol supplement or glibenclamide for four weeks. Organ weights, intestinal ATPase activities, complete blood count, serum α-amylase, total pr...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical AnalysisAuthor(s): Shankar Sengottuvelan, Vsuneetha VuppuAbstractThiazolidinediones are known for their activity against Type 2 diabetes and are currently being repurposed for their potent anti-cancer activity. In the present study, we have assessed in vitro metabolic properties and in vivo pharmacokinetic parameters of a novel thiazolidinedione derivative, BIT-15-67, a potential anticancer compound. BIT-15-67 showed low solubility in aqueous buffers at different pH values. The permeability was determined across the Caco-2 m...

(avocado) is a fruit tree whose different parts (leaf, bark, roots, and stone) are used in traditional medicine especially against diabetes mellitus. The aim of this study was to investigate the beneficial effects of 28-day treatment with aqueous, ethanolic, and methanolic leaf extracts on glucose homeostasis in type 2 diabetic mellitus using Wistar rats. Type 2 diabetes was induced with nicotinamide (120 mg/kg, i.p.) and streptozotocin (65 mg/kg, i.p.)....

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...

AbstractPurposeMental well-being among community-dwelling individuals with type 2 diabetes has not been well established. The primary objective was to evaluate the change in the mental well-being of individuals with diabetes. The secondary objective was to evaluate the association between changes in mental well-being and perceived health over 6  months, and any interacting factors in this association.MethodsThis was a prospective, multicenter study. Community-dwelling individuals aged  ≥ 21 years with type 2 diabetes were invited to meet with community pharmacists monthly for 6 months. Indiv...
