Prevalence of Anaemia and Its Associated Factors among Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients in University of Gondar Comprehensive Specialized Hospital

CONCLUSIONS: The finding of the current study revealed low prevalence of anaemia among T2DM patients. Sex, type of treatment, diabetes-related microvascular complications, and hypertension were factors associated with anaemia. Assessment of haemoglobin levels among T2DM patients may help to prevent ensuing microvascular complications. Incorporate anaemia screening into the routine assessment of diabetic complication particularly for those who are hypertensive and took combined treatment to allow early appreciation and treatment of anaemia and later improve the overall care of patients with diabetes.PMID:33628496 | PMC:PMC7889375 | DOI:10.1155/2021/6627979

ConclusionsPatients with HFpEF and T2DM expressed two different profiles depending on neurohormonal activation and arterial stiffness with prognostic implications. Patients without T2DM showed three profiles depending on ABPM pattern, kidney disease and PP without prognostic repercussion.

A 78-year-old woman with a history of type 2 diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease stage 4, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, grade 1 follicular lymphoma, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and iron deficiency anemia presented with several months of transfusion-dependent anemia. Medications included oral ferrous sulfate, insulin, spironolactone, clonidine, metoprolol, simvastatin, omeprazole, and apixaban. In the past several months, she had been receiving weekly darbepoetin alfa injections and requiring 4 blood transfusions a month.

AbstractChronic heart failure (HF) is rare in the young and common in the elderly in the Western world. HF in the young is usually due to specific causes, predominantly or exclusively affecting the heart (adult congenital heart disease, different types of cardiomyopathies, myocarditis, or cardiotoxicity). In contrast, the mechanisms underlying HF development in the elderly have not been completely delineated. We propose that in most elderly patients, HF, regardless of the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), is the consequence of the acceleration of cardiovascular aging by specific risk factors (usually hypertension,...

ConclusionsThe levels of the metabolites, including bile acids, amino acids, glycerophospholipids and fatty acids, in the plasma were changed, and 14 significantly changed metabolites were closely related to the preventive effect against liver diseases, type 2 diabetes, anemia, obesity, atherosclerosis, depression and anti-inflammatory effects. The five components of Angelica keiskei were related the modulatory activity of reducing the levels of bile acids and fatty acids.Graphical abstract

jan M Abstract BACKGROUNDAlthough it is considered that the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopathy (DR) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is primarily due to chronic hyperglycemia resulting in vascular changes and retinal ischemia, the red blood cells (RBCs) disorders might also represent an important pathophysiological risk factor.OBJECTIVETo evaluate whether the RBC properties contribute to DR development and progression in T2DM.METHODSThis prospective observational study comprised 247 persons with T2DM free of DR or with non proliferative DR without any signs of anaemia. The patients were reacessed after 60-mont...

AbstractThe One Anastomosis (Mini) Gastric Bypass is rapidly gaining acceptance. This review reports cumulative results of 12,807 procedures in obese patients with a mean age of 41.18  years and BMI of 46.6 kg/m2. The overall mortality was 0.10% and the leak rate was 0.96%. The follow-up duration ranged from 6  months to 12 years. A marginal ulceration rate of 2.7% and an anaemia rate of 7.0% were reported. Approximately 2.0% of patients reported postoperative gastro-oesophageal reflux and 0.71% developed malnutrition. Excess weight loss at 6, 12, 24 and 60 months was 60.68, 72.56, 78.2 and 76.6% r...

Test your medicine knowledge with the MKSAP challenge, in partnership with the American College of Physicians. A 55-year-old man is evaluated following a screening for type 2 diabetes mellitus. He is asymptomatic. He has a history of hypertension and hyperlipidemia. There is no history of anemia, liver disease, or kidney disease. Medications are lisinopril and rosuvastatin. On physical examination, blood pressure is 123/76 mm Hg and pulse rate is 72/min. His body-mass index (BMI) is 28. The remainder of the examination is unremarkable. Laboratory studies show hematocrit 45.6%, creatinine 1.0 mg/dL (88.4 µmo...
