Association of urinary albumin excretion with periodontal parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a cross-sectional study

AbstractBackgroundOur previous pilot study using patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in one medical clinic showed an association of urinary albumin excretion, a marker of generalized vascular dysfunction and kidney damage, with periodontitis. The purpose of this study was to confirm the association by increasing the number of patients and medical clinics.MethodsParticipants were 2302 patients (59.9% males, aged 29 –93 years) with type 2 diabetes mellitus from 25 medical clinics. Their medical records and information about socioeconomic status and health behavior were collected. Periodontal status was assessed in a nearby dental office. Multiple linear regression analyses were conducted to examine the assoc iation of log-transformed urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio with periodontal parameters after adjusting for sociodemographic status, general health conditions, and health behaviors. The analyses were performed in all subjects and subjects with normoalbuminuria only.ResultsMultiple linear regression analysis showed that mean probing pocket depth (beta: 0.062), percentage of sites with probing pocket depth of 4  mm or deeper (beta: 0.068), percentage of mobile teeth (beta: 0.055), and severity of periodontitis (beta: 0.049) were significantly (p

Authors: Kawasaki M, Arata N, Sakamoto N, Osamura A, Sato S, Ogawa Y, Yasuhi I, Waguri M, Hiramatsu Y Abstract For women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), the evaluation of glucose tolerance (GT) in the early postpartum period is universally recommended. Nevertheless, few studies have evaluated the risk factors for T2DM on the basis of GT data obtained during the early postpartum period. We aimed to identify the risk factors for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) by evaluating GT in the first 12 weeks postpartum (12wPP) in women with GDM and to categorize the risk using a combination of the principal risk fact...

AbstractPurposeSpinal cord injury (SCI) affects sexual health of both male and female, but little attention has been given to sexuality of SCI women. Similar to penile erection, vaginal lubrication represents a neurovascular event and then both denervation and vascular damage might contribute to its impairment. Nevertheless, the relative weight of lesion location/degree and vascular risk factors in determining hypolubrication in women with SCI has not yet been investigated. The aim of this study was to recognize among putative determinants of poor sexual arousal in women with SCI, neurogenic and vascular/metabolic independ...

WEST NILE VIRUS INFECTION WITH NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS: A CASE REPORT AND A BRIEF REVIEW OF THE SITUATION IN BULGARIA. Acta Clin Croat. 2019 Sep;58(3):546-549 Authors: Baymakova M, Christova I, Panayotova E, Trifonova I, Chobanov A, Daskalov I, Popov GT, Plochev K Abstract A case of a 66-year-old man with West Nile neuroinvassive disease manifested with fever, weakness, fatigue, consciousness disorders and underlying diabetes mellitus type 2 and cardiovascular diseases is presented. Laboratory data showed elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and fibrinogen. Serological tests revealed West Nile virus ...

Post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) occurs after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) in over 50% of HCT recipients and will increase 3-fold their risk of death. Further, levels of soluble Stimulation-2 (ST2) are predictive of PTDM in adults and children. However, molecular pathology of PTDM remains poorly understood, and therapeutic strategies for PTDM are limited. PTDM is initiated by hyperinsulinemia and hyperglycemia, and the alarmin IL-33 has been found to contribute to the secretion of insulin in islets by activating innate lymphoid cells type 2 (ILC2s) via Stimulation2 (ST2), the IL-33 receptor (Dalmas E.

Authors: Liu J, Yang L Abstract Effects of propofol and sevoflurane on blood glucose, hemodynamics, and inflammatory factors of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and gastric cancer (GC) were investigated. One hundred and ten patients with T2DM and GC, treated in The First Affiliated Hospital of Baotou Medical College (Baotou, China) from January 2017 to December 2018, were selected. Sixty patients anesthetized by propofol were included in the propofol group, whereas 50 patients anesthetized by sevoflurane were included in the sevoflurane group. The level of blood glucose, hemodynamic indicators, and inf...

ConclusionsThe risk of nocturnal hypoglycemia in the LM50 regimen was lower than that in the LM25 regimen under the HCD pattern, and the safety range of bedtime glucose for the LM50 regimen was wider than that of the LM25 regimen in Chinese T2DM patients. Premixed insulin analogs combined with acarbose were more helpful to reduce the incidence of hypoglycemia.Trial Registration #ChiCTR-TTRCC-12002516.

AbstractOsteoarthritis (OA) is considered the most frequent degenerative disease and is characterized by cartilage degradation and synovial inflammation. Fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) are vital to synovial inflammation in OA. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is characterized by insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (HINS) and has been demonstrated to be an independent risk factor for OA. Autophagy is involved in the processes of various inflammatory diseases, and autophagy inhibition can stimulate OA development. Thus, we aimed to investigate the role of insulin in the inflammatory phenotype and autophagy of FLSs in...

This study was aimed to evaluate association of vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms with susceptibility to T2DM.Subjects and methods: One hundred T2DM Saudi male patients were included in this study and one hundred healthy Saudi men were used as control. For each individual, fasting blood glucose, cholesterol, HDL-C, LDL-C, HbA1c, insulin and 25-(OH) vitamin D were measured. In addition,Apal, BsmI and TaqI genotypes were performed for each subject. Data was analyzed by SPSS version 16, using Spearman's rho and ANOVA tests.Results: There was significant inverse correlation between 25-(OH) vitamin D level and T2DM (p
