GreenfieldIndividuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) frequently fail to achieve glycemic goals and have excess cardiovascular risk and premature death. Adjunctive agents may play a role in reducing morbidity, mortality, and the adverse sequelae of insulin treatment. A surge in type 2 diabetes drug development has revealed agents with benefits beyond glucose lowering, including cardiovascular risk reduction. Could these benefits translate to T1D? Specific trials for T...

AbstractThe age-performance relationship describes changes in the organism ’s structural and functional capabilities over the course of the lifespan. The typical, empirical pattern is an asymmetrical inverted-U shape association with peak capacity occurring early in life. This process is well described in the literature, with an increasing interest in features that chara cterize this pattern, such as the rate of growth, age of peak performance, and rate of decline with aging. This is usually examined in cohorts of individuals followed over time with repeat assessments of physical or cognitive abilities. This framewor...

This study investigated the effects of glibenclamide on transplant-induced arteriosclerosis as well as the underlying molecular events.MethodsMale C57Bl/6 (H-2b) and BALB/c (H-2d) mice were used for aorta transplantation. We used hematoxylin and eosin (HE) and Elastic Van Gieson (EVG) staining for histological assessment, and qRT-PCR and ELISA to measure mRNA and protein levels. Mouse peritoneal macrophages were isolated for lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulation and glibenclamide treatment followed by ELISA, Western blot, and Transwell assays.ResultsGlibenclamide inhibited transplant-induced arteriosclerosis in vivo. Morpho...

An estimated 30 million Americans are living with diabetes. That ’s over 9% of the nation, but there are warning signs. One is the condition known as prediabetes, where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but below the range for type 2 diabetes. Data from 2005 to 2016 shows that nearly one in five American children ages 12 to 18 were prediabetic. CBS New s Medical Contributor Dr. David Agus joins "CBS This Morning Saturday" to discuss this condition, as well as a new diet trend.

We examined the relationships among dietary patterns, dietary biomarkers, and metabolic indicators in type 2 diabetes (n = 871). Design: Diabetic patients (n = 871) who provided complete clinical and dietary data in both 2008 and 2009 were selected from a cohort participating in a diabetic control study in Taiwan. Dietary data were obtained using a short, semiquantitative food frequency questionnaires, and dietary pattern identified by factor analysis. Multiple linear regressions were used to analyze the association between dietary biomarkers (ferritin, folate, and erythrocyte n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids [n-3 PUFA...
