Type 2 diabetes cases in Scotland 'up by 40% in 10 years'
The number of people diagnosed rose from 190,772 to 267,615 between 2008 and 2018, a study by Diabetes Scotland shows.
Conclusions: Our study results were not consistent with the hypothesis that PPI use increases MI risk among people without known heart disease.
TYPE 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that can be a precursor to more serious health problems so it is imperative to keep the condition in check. Lowering blood sugar levels helps to stabilise the condition and a particular cooking oil has been shown to facilitate this process.
AbstractSitagliptin attenuates left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and may improve oxygen uptake in animals. The effects of sitagliptin on oxygen uptake (VO2) and exercise hemodynamics have been unclear in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and coronary artery disease (CAD). Thirty patients with T2DM and CAD were randomized into a sitagliptin (50 mg/day) or voglibose (0.6 mg/day) group. Patients underwent maximal cardiopulmonary exercise testing. VO2 and hemodynamics were evaluated at rest, anaerobic threshold and peak exercise. Resting LV diastolic function (E ’, peak early diastolic mitral annular velocity...
By Emily Reynolds Ensuring you’re well-informed before making a choice is, on the whole, a sensible thing to do. This is especially true of big decisions — just pretending you’ve read the terms and conditions of a new website might be okay, but we’re unlikely to be so lax about our health or finances. But could too much information lead us to make worse, not better, decisions? A study published in Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications suggests that sometimes that might be the case. Min Zheng and colleagues were motivated by advances in machine learning that have increased the informat...
CONCLUSIONS These results indicate that GDLP against T2DM-induced hepatic steatosis, oxidative stress, and inflammation by improving the Nrf2/HO-1 signaling pathway in db/db mice, suggesting the GDLP may serve as an effective strategy for in fatty liver treatment.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a common complication of pregnancy associated with significant maternal and neonatal morbidities, including increased risk of pre-eclampsia, macrosomia, and subsequent type 2 diabetes. In most developed countries, universal glucose testing is performed at 24-28 weeks ’ gestation to identify women with overt glucose intolerance. Ideally, women at high risk of developing GDM would be identified earlier in pregnancy to facilitate preventive intervention, enhance antenatal care, and improve clinical outcomes through reduced maternal and fetal exposure to metabo lic alterations...
In this study we analyzed the changes of age- and gender-specific all-cause mortality rates and ratios in T2DM subjects (aged>40 years) in Hungary between 2001 and 2016.
