The Associations Between Gonadal Hormones and Serum Uric Acid Levels in Men and Postmenopausal Women With Diabetes

The objective of this study was to investigate the associations between gonadal hormones and uric acid (UA) levels in diabetic adults, paying particular attention to the association between DHEA and UA levels.Methods: We analyzed 4,426 participants out of 4,813 diabetic adults enrolled from seven communities in a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2018. Participants underwent several examinations, including assessments of anthropometric parameters, blood pressure, glucose, lipid profiles, UA, total testosterone (TT), estradiol (E2), the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), the luteinizing hormone (LH), and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA).Results: Among men and compared with individuals in the first quartile, participants in the fourth quartile of TT and FSH had odds of hyperuricemia that were significantly decreased by so much as 48 and 34%, respectively (both P

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...

Authors: Wan Q, Qian S, Huang Y, Zhang Y, Peng Z, Li Q, Shu B, Zhu L, Wang M Abstract Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of human morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although cholesterol-lowering drugs, including statins and recently approved PCSK9 inhibitors, together with antithrombotic drugs have been historically successful in reducing the occurrence of coronary artery disease (CAD), the high incidence of CAD remains imposing the largest disease burden on our healthcare systems. We reviewed cardiovascular drugs recently approved or under clinical development, with a particular focus on their pharmaco...
