Association between the Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index, bone mineral density and osteoporosis in type  2 diabetes patients

In this study, the relationship among the Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index (GNRI), bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis in type  2 diabetes mellitus patients was explored, and the GNRI predictive value was evaluated.Materials and MethodsWe enrolled 225 men and 192 women with type  2 diabetes mellitus. Their general condition, and laboratory and BMD data were collected. Spearman’s partial correlation analysis adjusting for age, body mass index and albumin was used for exploring the association among the GNRI, BMD and bone metabolism markers. Statistical analyses, including multivariate regression analysis and receiver operating characteristic curve analysis, were also applied in this study.ResultsOn Spearman ’s partial correlation analysis, GNRI was positively associated with BMD and albumin‐corrected calcium (r = 0.145–0.561,P

CONCLUSION: The present study confirmed that CRS is frequent asthma comorbidity as concerns more than one-third of asthmatic outpatients. CRSwNP is associated with type 2 inflammation and blood eosinophilia. These outcomes underline that CRSwNPasthma phenotype deserves adequate attention for careful management and optimal identification of the best-tailored therapy.

AbstractSummaryIt is unknown whether a relationship exists between bone mineral density (BMD) and atherosclerosis with or without vascular calcification. In our study, a negative correlation between carotid atherosclerosis and BMD was found in female T2DM patients with vascular calcification, but not in those without calcification and males.IntroductionAtherosclerosis is considered associated with low bone mineral density (BMD). However, most previous studies focus on patients with arterial atherosclerosis with vascular calcification. It is still unknown whether a relationship exists between atherosclerosis and BMD in pati...

Conclusion: Serious adverse reactions to donepezil can occur in elderly patients, who typically require multiple medications for a variety of comorbidities. In particular, extrapyramidal reactions have occurred when donepezil is administered in combination with psychotropic drugs. However, in our patient, an extrapyramidal adverse reaction occurred in the absence of psychotropic drugs. Thus, clinicians must be aware of inter-individual differences in drug actions and possible serious adverse reactions, and carefully monitor these patients to ensure the timely detection of adverse events and their safe treatment.

Insulin impedes osteogenesis of BMSCs by inhibiting autophagy and promoting premature senescence via the TGF-β1 pathway. Aging (Albany NY). 2020 Feb 03;12: Authors: Zhang P, Zhang H, Lin J, Xiao T, Xu R, Fu Y, Zhang Y, Du Y, Cheng J, Jiang H Abstract The dysfunction of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) may be a core factor in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) associated osteoporosis. However, the underlying mechanism is not well understood. Here, we delineated the critical role of insulin impeding osteogenesis of BMSCs in T2DM. Compared with BMSCs from healthy people (H-BMSCs), BMSCs from T2DM pati...

As primary care physicians, advance practice providers, or other members of the health care team, we recommend physical activity to most if not all patients we see. On a population basis, and most importantly, regular physical activity prevents the development of coronary artery disease and reduces symptoms in patients with established cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, evidence supports the role of exercise in reducing the risk of several other chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, obesity, and cancer of the breast and colon.

In this study, we found tubeimoside I, a natural compound isolated from the Chinese medicinal herb Bolbostemma paniculatum (Maxim) Franquet (Cucurbitaceae), significantly ameliorated the decrease of bone mass in type 2 diabetes-induced osteoporosis in rats. It appears that tubeimoside I exerts this protecting effect through inhibiting osteoclast formation and function. Futhermore, our study showed that tubeimoside I inhibits NF-κB transcriptional activation and degradation of IκBα. Collectively, our results reveal that tubeimoside I attenuates osteoclastogenesis through down-regulating NF-κB signali...

ConclusionThe prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia in patients with T2DM is high. Female gender, increasing age, normal BMI, low serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D, and pioglitazone use further increase the risk of osteoporosis.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIndividuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T1DM, T2DM) have an increased risk of bone fracture compared to non-diabetic controls that is not explained by differences in BMD, BMI, or falls. Thus, bone tissue fracture resistance may be reduced in individuals with DM. The purpose of this review is to summarize work that analyzes the effects of T1DM and T2DM on bone tissue compositional and mechanical properties.Recent FindingsStudies of clinical T2DM specimens revealed increased mineralization and advanced glycation endproduct (AGE) concentrations and significant relationships between mecha...
