Evaluation of retrobulbar circulation in type 2 diabetic patients using color Doppler imaging

Conclusion: Significant changes in resistivity index and flow velocities were observed in the retrobulbar vessels, especially in ophthalmic artery in diabetics compared to controls. CDI with results of increased resistance or decreased flow could be useful to predict individuals at higher risk for developing severe DR.

CONCLUSIONS: Preeclampsia as well as early-onset and late-onset PE all represent risk factors for adverse cardiovascular events later in life. Early-onset PE is associated with a higher burden of cardiovascular mortality and morbidity compared to late-onset PE. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

This study aims to evaluate the difference in renal parenchyma stiffness assessed by measuring Young's modulus (YM) using a supersonic shear wave imaging (SSI) technique among healthy patients and patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) with and without diabetic kidney disease (DKD). We analyzed the correlations of YM with clinical information and conventional ultrasound parameters. All patients (N  ==) were divided into three groups: (i) healthy patients (patients without kidney disease or type 2 DM, N = 31); (ii) patients with type 2 DM without kidney disease (N = 38); and (iii) patients with DKD (N = 55).

Conclusions/interpretationRegardless of improvements in CRF, individuals with type 2 diabetes had significant improvements in carotid IMT and lower-limb arterial stiffness following a 1  year exercise intervention. Thus, a lack of improvement in CRF following exercise in people with type 2 diabetes does not necessarily entail a lack of improvement in vascular health.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov NCT03144505FundingThis work was supported by fellowships from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology.

This study aimed to discuss clinical application value of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography on lesion skeletal muscle microcirculation and arterial perfusion reserve in type 2 diabetes mellitus and complicated microvessels. Methods Patients in the control group, type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) group, diabetic microangiopathy (DM + MC) group underwent contrast-enhanced ultrasonography before and after temporary arterial occlusion to observe blood perfusion of gastrocnemius muscle; draw the time-intensity curve of arteriole, muscular tissue, and venule, and obtain perfusion parameters such as contrast agent arrival time and...

This study was designed to investigate the association of rs7903146 (C/T) polymorphism of TCF7L-2 gene with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in Asian Indians.MethodsIn this case-control study 162 non-diabetic subjects with NAFLD and 173 body mass index (BMI)-matched controls without NAFLD were recruited. Abdominal ultrasound, clinical and biochemical investigations, fasting insulin levels and value of homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) was measured. Single nucleotide polymorphism rs7903146 (C/T) was genotyped by polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphisms.Res...

Soluble suppression of tumorigenicity 2 (sST2) is a free form of membrane-bound ST2, which is a member of the interleukin-1 receptor family. Previous research has shown that sST2 is associated with diabetes, but cardiovascular risk factors have not been established. To analyze the relationship between sST2 and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). After screening, a total of 118 subjects with T2DM were divided into 2 groups according to the measurement of CIMT (normal CIMT (NCIMT), n = 58; abnormal CIMT (ACIMT), n = 60), and 60 healthy subjects (normal control (NC...

This study was undertaken to determine the incidence of LF and associated parameters in prediabetic patients. Three study groups with equal number of participants defined on the basis of glucose metabolism status were included the following: normal glucose metabolism (NGM), prediabetes, and newly diagnosed type 2 DM (55 patients in each group). Liver stiffness measurements were carried out using liver elastography point quantification, and 7 kPa or greater was considered to denote the presence of LF. Patients were subdivided into 2 groups as those with or without LF. Of the NGM, prediabetes, and type 2 DM subjects involved...
