Higher Blood Urea Nitrogen and Urinary Calcium: New Risk Factors for Diabetes Mellitus in Primary Aldosteronism Patients

Conclusions: PA patients were more likely to have DM compared with general population. Apart from older age, overweight and dyslipidemia, higher BUN and excessive excretion of urinary Ca may also be the new potential risk factors for DM in PA patients.

Abstract Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most common diseases in the world. Among its effects are an increase in the risk of cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer's disease, and blood-brain barrier (BBB) dysfunction. DM is characterized by high blood glucose levels that are caused by either lack of insulin (Type I) or resistance to the actions of insulin (Type II). The phenotypes of these two types are dramatically different, with Type I animals being thin, with low levels of leptin as well as insulin, whereas Type II animals are often obese with high levels of both leptin and insulin. The best characteri...

Authors: Kitazawa T, Park CH, Hiratani K, Choi JS, Yokozawa T Abstract Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The risk factors include hypertension, dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, and central obesity. Various diagnostic criteria have been proposed by different organizations over the past decade. The utilization of traditional Chinese medicine to treat metabolic syndrome has received increasing attention due to its wide availability. In this paper, we report the case of a 68-year-old patient with hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, borderline diabetes, ...

In conclusion, the concept of an epigenetic clock is compelling, but caution should be taken in interpreting associations with age acceleration. Association tests of age acceleration should include age as a covariate.
