Association of health literacy and self-management practices and psychological factor among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Saudi Arabia.

Conclusion: The study shows that nearly half of the T2DM patients that exhibited low level of functional health literacy had low diabetes self-management.  Our findings also show that gender significantly affects diabetes self-management in which odds are a lot higher among females than males with diabetes self-management. This study underscores the importance of proper counselling and education about diabetes control on both patients and family members. PMID: 31707414 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Dalmády S, Kemény L, Antal M, Gyulai R Abstract Introduction: Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin disease with strong genetic background and environmental triggers. Patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are at greater risk of developing other chronic and potentially severe comorbidities, such as psoriatic arthritis, hyperlipidemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases or depression. Recently, accumulating epidemiologic, genetic and pathogenetic evidence indicates that psoriasis is also associated with periodontitis, a chronic progressive ...

ConclusionsBy sexes we observed significant frequencies of frailty and pre-frailty in males with DM ” and in women with HTN. In the Katz scale, women with DM2 have high percentages of disability in basic activities of daily living. Associating DM2 and HTN with frailty, dysfunction and depression reveals a lack of prevention.

AbstractType 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a risk factor for depression. Since brain insulin resistance plays a potential role in depression, the future risk of depression in patients with T2DM may be altered depending on the class of oral hypoglycemic agent (OHA) used for T2DM therapy. The aim of the present study was to determine if specific classes of OHAs are associated with a risk for comorbid depression in T2DM. Japanese adult patients with T2DM (n  = 40 214) were divided into a case group (with depression; n = 1979) and control group (without depression; n = 38 235). After adj...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPatient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient registries both play important roles in assessing patient outcomes. However, no study has examined the use of PROMs among registries involving patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Our objective is twofold: first, to review the range of PROMs used in registry-based studies of patients with T2DM; second, to describe associations between these PROMs, T2DM and its complications.Recent FindingsThe International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM) Diabetes Standard Set recommended routine usage of PROMs to assess psychological...

Psychological stress is recognized as a major modifiable risk factor for adult non-communicable disease (NCD) that includes depression, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease. Dysregulation of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity resulting in either exaggerated or blunted cortisol responses, and altered autonomic cardiovascular control have been thought to underlie this association. The developmental origins hypothesis proposes that impaired nutrition during fetal and early postnatal growth is associated with a higher NCD risk later in life. Maternal nutrients are vital for fetal growth and deve...
