Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorders, characterized by hyperglycemia, resulting from relative insulin deficiency, often on a background of insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes), or (near) absolute insulin deficiency related to autoimmune pathophysiology (type 1 diabetes). The most common form is type 2 diabetes, and its global prevalence is rising as a result of changes in lifestyle and lengthening of life expectancy.1,2 An estimated 463 million people aged 20 to 79 yr have diabetes,3 which corresponds to 9.3% of the adult population and represents a four-fold increase in diabetes prevalence since 1980.4 Pati...

According to the CDC, people with chronic diseases, such as obesity, hypertension and type-2 diabetes, are a staggering 12 times more likely to die from the coronavirus – and Black Americans have a higher prevalence of many of these conditions. In Baltimore, medical staff from Johns Hopkins are joining forces with "trusted messengers" – including faith leaders from a historic local mosque – to improve health outcomes for the Black community. Allison Aubrey, o f National Public Radio, reports.

(CNN) — If you want to be one of the first to receive an experimental vaccine for Covid-19, now’s your chance. Wednesday, a new website — coronaviruspreventionnetwork.org — went live allowing people in the United States to register to take part in clinical trials for vaccines and monoclonal antibody therapies. The website will handle registration for the four large vaccine studies that are expected to start this summer and fall, and any others that follow. The US Department of Health and Human Services announced the website Wednesday, along with the appointment of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research...

Authors: Dedefo MG, Gemechu DB, Fekadu G, Tekle Dibessa T Abstract Background: Hypertension is a prevalent comorbid condition in diabetes, affecting ∼20-60% of patients with diabetes, depending on obesity, ethnicity, and age. Adults with diabetes historically have two or three times higher rate of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than adults without diabetes. Objective: The aim of this study was to assess blood pressure (BP) control and its predictors among hypertensive diabetic patients on follow-up at the chronic clinic of Nekemte Referral Hospital (NRH) in West Ethiopia. Methods: A cross-sectional study ...

Authors: Dutra JDM, Lisboa QC, Ferolla SM, Carvalho CMML, Mendes CCM, Ferrari TCA, Couto CA Abstract Some epidemiological evidence suggests an inverse correlation between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) frequency and vitamin D levels. Likewise, a beneficial effect of vitamin D on diabetes mellitus (DM) and insulin resistance has been observed, but this is an unsolved issue. Thus, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of hypovitaminosis D in a NAFLD Brazilian population and its association with disease severity and presence of comorbidities. In a cross-sectional study, the clinical, biochemical and histo...

no LK Abstract Purpose To analyze, in aged obese patients, the weight loss, comorbidity control, and safety postoperative complications of bariatric surgery by Roux-en-Y gastric bypass technique. Methods Twenty-seven patients who underwent laparoscopic weight-reducing gastroplasty with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass to treat obesity were included. All patients were ≥ 60 years old at the time of surgery. The Wilcoxon test was used for statistical analysis, and a p-value ≤0.05it was considered significant. Results Ten (90.9%) patients with dyslipidemia were cured (p

We describe the various pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies for AF management with a peek at some futuristic approaches. While each one of these variables could lend themselves for a separate review, we attempted to provide an overview of the most critical predictors of AF outcomes to equip the readers with the latest know-how of the management of AF.

Abstract Abnormal birth weight is the one of the major causes of adulthood diseases such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension. Accumulating evidence has suggested that the placental trophoblast is one of the most important reasons that influence birth weight. Our previous study showed that miR-519a are correlated with low fetal birth weight through regulating trophoblast proliferation. To further clarify the detailed mechanisms on how it is regulated, we screened the placental-specific circular RNAs (circRNAs) via microarray assay. The result identified that cir...

Abstract In March of 2020, the World Health Organization declared the SARS-Cov2 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak a global pandemic after documenting community scale transmission in every region, including Latin America. The risk factors associated with severity of disease include older age, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular and lung diseases, and immune suppression. Additional evidence strongly suggests that obesity is also a risk factor for severe forms of COVID-19 disease, while other types of malnutrition increase the risk of hospitalization from influenza-like diseases, regardless of the causative agent of the il...
