Type 2 diabetes (T2D), commonly accompanied by cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors (e.g. hypertension, high cholesterol, and smoking), has posed a major challenge to society, patients, and families, as an emerging global pandemic [1]. A recent study using the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data reported that diabetes and prediabetes (including undiagnosed cases) affected almost half of the US adult population. However the results also exhibited a sex bias with the potential underestimation for the prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes in women due to physiological differences between men and women [2,3].

Nearly half of all premature deaths may be due to unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as insufficient exercise, poor diet, and smoking. These risk factors increase the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. The good news is that lifestyle changes can make a difference. In a study analyzing over 55,000 people, those with favorable lifestyle habits such as not smoking, not being obese, engaging in regular physical activity, and eating a healthy diet lowered their heart disease risk by nearly 50%. The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) recently published guide...

Authors: Gao RY, Hsu BG, Wu DA, Hou JS, Chen MC Abstract Background: Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) acts as a potent metabolic regulator. Serum FGF21 levels were significantly higher in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) populations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between serum FGF21 levels and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in T2DM patients. Methods: Fasting blood samples were obtained from 126 T2DM patients. MetS and its components were defined according to the diagnostic criteria from the International Diabetes Federation. Serum FGF21 concentrations were measured using a comm...
