Credit: Alison Kentish/IPSBy Alison KentishDOMINICA, Oct 18 2021 (IPS) The Rastafarian organizations in the Caribbean are determined that the issue of slavery reparations will emerge from the eclipse of COVID-19. As the world deals with the impacts of efforts to contain the virus’ spread and regional governments tackle vaccine hesitancy and a wave of misinformation, issues not directly related to COVID-19 have had to be temporarily shelved. However, members o...

CONCLUSION: Compared with euthyroid noncarriers (Thr/Thr), euthyroid Ala92-Dio2 carriers showed increased BMI levels, and Ala92-Dio2 carriers also had higher fasting plasma glucose levels than matched euthyroid nondiabetic noncarriers.PMID:34660805 | PMC:PMC8516525 | DOI:10.1155/2021/9914009

The objective of this study was to compare the contributions of genetic ancestry, socioenvironmental factors, and inflammation-related health conditions to ethnic differences in C-reactive protein levels. We used multivariable regression to compare CRP blood serum levels between Black and White ethnic groups from the United Kingdom Biobank (UKBB) prospective cohort study. CRP serum levels are significantly associated with ethnicity in an age and sex adjusted model. Study participants who identify as Black have higher average CRP than those who identify as White, CRP increases with age, and females have higher average CRP t...

Bosn J Basic Med Sci. 2021 Oct 12. doi: 10.17305/bjbms.2021.6488. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAortic aneurysms occur relatively frequently in the ascending thoracic aorta, but are rarely seen in patients with type 2 diabetes. Our aim was to evaluate inflammatory cell infiltration in the ascending aortic aneurysm wall in patients with diabetes without arterial hypertension (DM2 group, N=6) versus hypertensive non-diabetic patients (AH group, N=34). For histologic analysis, the sections were stained with hematoxylin-eosin and Movat pentachrome. The immunohistochemical staining was used to analyze the infiltration of pro-in...

We describe a 22-year prospective observational population-based study that determined the prevalence and incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and intermediate hyperglycaemia (IH), obesity, hypertension, and disorders of lipid metabolism in a middle-age population in the Finnish municipality of Savitaipale.METHODS: 1151 people participated in the baseline survey in 1996-1999, following two follow-up examinations, in 2007-2008 and 2018-2019. Follow-up studies comprised clinical measurements, 2-h oral glucose tolerance test and other biochemistry, questionnaires, and registry data.RESULTS: The prevalence of T2D quadrupled to 2...

We examined carotid visco-elasticity in 307 people (180 men), with hypertension alone (n = 69), combined hypertension/T2DM (H-T2DM, n = 99), normotensive (N-T2DM, n = 25) and healthy controls (n = 114). Diameter (D)/pressure (P) waveforms were measured at right /left common carotid arteries, respectively. Local carotid PWV and distensibility in systole and diastole were evaluated by the D2P-loop method, and wall viscosity from hysteresis, the area (HA) within the P--D loop, as a dynamic measure of systolic loading and diastolic unloading. Results: Controls’ hysteresis fell quadratically with ag...

Endocr J. 2021 Oct 14. doi: 10.1507/endocrj.EJ21-0339. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMetabolic syndrome (MetS) is cluster of metabolic diseases, including abdominal obesity, hyperglycemia, high blood pressure, and dyslipidemia, that directly escalate the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP) is a binding protein for thioredoxin, a molecule that is a key inhibitor of cellular oxidation, and thus regulates the cellular redox state. Epigenetic alteration of the TXNIP-encoding locus has been associated with components of MetS. In the present study, we sought to determine wh...

Pathol Res Pract. 2021 Sep 15;227:153618. doi: 10.1016/j.prp.2021.153618. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDiabetic nephropathy (DN), also known as diabetic kidney disease (DKD), is a drastic renal complication of type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Poorly controlled DM over the years, may disrupt kidneys' blood vessels, leading to the hypertension (HTN) and DN onset. During DN, kidneys' waste filtering ability becomes disturbed. Being on a healthy lifestyle and controlling both DM and HTN are now the best proceedings to prevent or at least delay DN occurrence. Unfortunately, about one-fourth of diabetic individuals eve...
