Prevalence of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes-Related Complications and Their Association With Determinants Identified in Canada’s Survey on Living With Chronic Diseases—Diabetes Component

ConclusionsOur findings suggest that socioeconomic factors, including marital status, income and education, have a significant association with most types of complications. Our findings also confirm that low levels of physical activity and high levels of glycated hemoglobin were major determinants in many diabetes-related complications.RésuméObjectifsDans la présente étude, nous avons estimé la prévalence des complications du diabète et les facteurs qui y sont associés chez des patients canadiens diabétiques.MéthodesNous avons utilisé les données de l’Enquête sur les personnes ayant une maladie chronique au Canada — composante du diabète (EPMCC-CD) de 2011 pour calculer la prévalence pondérée de 16 complications du diabète. Nous avons utilisé un modèle de régression logistique multivarié et stratifié selon le sexe pour examiner l’association entre chacune des complications du diabète et les déterminants sélectionnés.RésultatsParmi les patients canadiens qui avaient eux-mêmes déclaré être atteints du diabète, 80,26 % ont déclaré souffrir d’au moins 1 type de complication du diabète. Les complications les plus fréquemment déclarées étaient la pression artérielle élev&e...

Authors: Gebremichael GB, Mariye Zemicheal T Abstract Background: Hypoglycemia is an acute medical situation that occurs when blood glucose level falls below 70 mg/dl. Although prevention of hypoglycemia is one cornerstone in the management of diabetes mellitus, its prevention practice among patients with diabetes mellitus is insufficiently studied. Moreover, the existed scarce literature in Ethiopia revealed hypoglycemia prevention practice is inadequate. Thus, this study tried to assess hypoglycemia prevention practices and associated factors among diabetic patients. Methods: Hospital-based cross-secti...

Authors: Fruzzetti F, Benelli E, Fidecicchi T, Tonacchera M Abstract The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the effects of a treatment with α-lipoic acid (ALA) associated with two different doses of myo-inositol (MI) on clinical and metabolic features of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Eighty-eight women received the treatment, and 71 among them had complete clinical charts and were considered eligible for this study. All women were treated with 800 mg of ALA per day: 43 patients received 2000 mg of MI and 28 received 1000 mg of MI per day. Menstrual cyclicity, B...

PasquiniROME, Apr 9 2020 (IPS-Partners) Behind the Tiburtina Station, in the East of Rome, with just a small covered area protecting from the inclemency of the weather, sleeping close to each other is the only way to stay warm. A boy of Ivorian origin is alone, far from everyone, in the centre of the sidewalk, exposed to a freezing wind. ‘He told me he preferred to die of cold than to get infected, because he was very scared and he knew that it was not safe for him to be close to the others’, Dr. Antonella Torchiaro told Degrees of Latitude. She is a physician o...

We report results similar to the original CCS study by Snowshoe et al., where we found the CCS-CA to be a valid and reliable strength-based instrument and to support the conclusion that culture is a social determinant of mental health/well-being for Indigenous/Native peoples.

Conclusions: Although there is an increasing interest in improving healthcare delivery, quality indicators of pharmaceutical services and those relevant to CAM provision in healthcare facilities adopting the integrated healthcare paradigm are still limited. Future studies are needed to develop validated quality indicators that could be successfully used in measuring and benchmarking quality of services in integrated healthcare facilities.

In this study, we investigated the effect that ECD had on the lipid metabolism induced by high-fat diet in C57BL/6 mice. Body weight, body length, and abdominal circumference were detected. Blood lipid content was measured via biochemical assay kit. The gene and protein expression of PPARγ and LPL in visceral fat and skeletal muscle of mice was measured by real-time PCR and western blot. The research discovered that the phlegm-resolving effect that ECD had on high-fat diet mice was mainly manifested as reduced body weight, Lee's index, abdominal circumference, and level of TG and TC. Meanwhile, we observed significan...

Authors: Li Y, Li Z, Wang R, Mi B, Jiang T, Lu M, Liu J, Wang B, Zhang D, Xu Q, Huang Y Abstract Tangzhiqing (TZQ), a Chinese herbal medicine, has been widely used to treat diabetes mellitus in China. TZQ works as a potential α-glucosidase inhibitor to reduce the absorption of glucose from dietary carbohydrates. The main aim of this study was to investigate the postprandial glucose-lowering effect of TZQ on the common carbohydrates in healthy humans. Meanwhile, the possible types of the inhibited α-glucosidase enzymes were predicted in this study. Glucose, sucrose, maltose, maltodextrin, and starch were...
