CONCLUSION: It has been conclusively shown from the study that most of the office workers have moderate to high risk of developing diabetes and are also overweight or obese.PMID:34823460 | DOI:10.2174/1573399818666211125143630

SummaryThe prevalence of women diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes (T2D) at fertile age has been increasing over the last few decades, and pregnancy with T2D is associated with increased maternal and foetal risks. In the last few years, studies have shown that focusing on aggressive weight loss in individuals recently diagnosed with T2D can lead to diabetes remission. Here, we present a case report of a woman who achieved diabetes remission after massive weight loss and had an uncomplicated pregnancy. Diabetes remission before pregnancy could be offered to motivated women with T2D as a safe way to reduce the risks of pregnancy....

BackgroundProgressive overloads of intrahepatic triglycerides are related to metabolic dysregulation of multiple lipid and lipoprotein profiles, but whether similar dose effects are found in each subtype of metabolic associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) remains unclear. We aimed to characterize the lipid profiles associated with liver fat content (LFC) in MAFLD patients who were overweight, lean/normal weight, or had diabetes.MethodsWe conducted a cross-sectional study enrolling 1,182 consecutive participants (144 non-MAFLD and 1,038 MAFLD) who underwent MRI proton density fat fraction measurement (MRI-PDFF) from 2011 to...

Most of the work aimed at treating aging as a medical condition is focused on stress response upregulation, finding ways to trigger some of the regulatory pathways and mechanisms involved in beneficial cellular reactions to the mild stresses of exercise, reduced calorie intake, hypoxia, heat, cold, and so forth. Improved cell behavior leads to improved tissue function, which in turn slows the progression of degenerative aging. Many of these pathways converge on autophagy, and evidence from the study of calorie restriction suggests that improved autophagy is the largest contributing factor. Autophagy is the name give...

CONCLUSION: With over 50,000 annual hospitalization cases, AP is one of the most important inpatient treatment indications in gastroenterology in Germany. Overall, AP mortality has improved in recent years, presumably due to improved interdisciplinary treatment concepts. In this study, we identified important clinical and epidemiological risk factors for an unfavorable course, which could help to improve risk prediction and triaging, and thus the management of AP.PMID:34820807 | DOI:10.1055/a-1682-7621

CONCLUSION: In view of an increasing number of patients undergoing bariatric surgery, it will probably not be feasible in the future for lifelong follow-up to be provided exclusively in specialized centers.PMID:34819222 | DOI:10.3238/arztebl.m2021.0359

Conclusions: Patients with diabetes and asthma display higher BMI and body fat percentages compared to patients with only diabetes. This difference is only observed among women, suggesting them as a target group for intensified weight loss treatments.

Methylprednisolone (MD) in pulse dosage of 1g once a day for three days was given to 12 patients with severe COVID-19 pneumonitis with refractory hypoxemia to dexamethasone low dosage of 10 days. Decision to give Solu medrol was based on expert multidisciplinary opinion with back-up papersThe most prominent comorbidities in the study group was obesity. 10 out of 12 patients were obese with an average BMI of 37 (BMI minimal 31.3 and max 43).Furthermore hypertension (67%), diabetes mellitus type 2 (33%), OSAS (25%), asthma (1 patient), pre-existing pulmonary embolism (1 patient), colon malignancy (1 patient) and alcohol live...
