Objectives In patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), physical activity is strongly advised as nonpharmacological therapy. In general, a moderate aerobic exercise intensity is recommended. It was also proposed, however, that greater intensities tend to yield even greater benefits in HbA1c. Hence, the most appropriate exercise intensity seems not to be established yet. We compared the effect of moderate (aerobic) and vigorous (anaerobic) activity on postprandial plasma glucose. Methods In 10 consecutive patients (63 ± 12 years, BMI 28.3 ±...

Conclusion Overall cost was higher for patients with DM, whether or not they were admitted with acute HF due to HFrEF or HFpEF. Cost per day alive for patients with DM continued to exceed corresponding costs for patients without DM, with HFpEF patients with DM having the highest cost.

CONCLUSION: MS is beneficial where the main aim is to attain a significant and long-lasting weight loss results. The RCTs have depicted the superiority which surgical mechanisms hold over medically based therapy, for enhancing glycaemic control, and achieving remission of diabetes. This type of surgery improves life quality, reduces incidences of other obesity and diabetes relating diseases like microvascular illness, sleep apnea, fatal disorder, and fatty liver disease.

Authors: Koch TR, Shope TR Abstract Obesity is a major factor in the worldwide rise in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The obesity "epidemic" will require novel, effective interventions to permit both the prevention and treatment of diabetes caused by obesity. Laparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a newer bariatric surgical procedure with a lower risk of complications (compared to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery). Based in part on restriction of daily caloric intake, sleeve gastrectomy has a major role in inducing significant weight loss and weight loss is maintained for at least 10&nbs...

In this long ‐term follow‐up of women with GDM, we found that 2‐hour glucose during OGTT at pregnancy predicted β‐cell function (as measured by ODI) 22 years post‐partum. Results of 2‐hour glucose during OGTT at pregnancy is a more useful indicator of long‐term metabolic risk. Most of the cases wh ich later converted to type 2 diabetes occurred within the first 15 years postpartum. AbstractAims/IntroductionWomen with gestational diabetes mellitus are at increased risk for type  2 diabetes. We characterized the association between maternal glycemia during pregnancy with long‐term outcomes.Methods a...

AbstractObesity and insulin resistance are at the centre of most cases of metabolic syndrome (MetS), which may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease approximately 2 ‐fold and type 2 diabetes mellitus approximately 5‐fold. Aside from lifestyle intervention and drug therapy, bariatric surgery (BS) is considered a definitive treatment for this disease.

AbstractIntroductionTo date, research is lacking on the development of a cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk assessment tool for people with diabetes mellitus, in general, and for Chinese patients with diabetes in particular. We have explored CVD risk assessment tools for Chinese patients with diabetes. Here, we report our investigation of cardiovascular risk assessment using the improved Framingham Risk Score (I-FRS) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Beijing communities.MethodsA total of 3232 patients with T2DM attending Beijing community health centers were enrolled in this study. FRS were used to predict...

ConclusionsUse of data-driven prescriptive analytics would help clinicians make evidence-based treatment decisions for HbA1c control for patients with type 2 diabetes, in particular for those at high risk.

AbstractKetogenic diets have been proposed as a non-pharmacological strategy for the management of several chronic conditions. Their efficacy and safety have been evaluated in the field of neurology, oncology and endocrinology for disorders including cancer, dementia, drug-resistant epilepsy, migraines, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The nutritional requirements of these subjects are expected to differ significantly. Indeed, although all ketogenic diets restrict carbohydrates, each intervention is characterized by a specific daily calorie intake, macronutrient composition and duration. How...
