AbstractObjectiveThe increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) calls for evolving a concomitant screening strategies for early disease detection and prediction of the complications. Progranulin (PRGN) was recently introduced as a biomarker of inflammation in T2DM. However, little data have been published as regarding progranulin in relation to diabetic micro angiopathy among Egyptian patients with T2DM. The aim of this study was therefore to investigate and evaluate serum progranulin as a biomarker for the presence and severity of micro vascular complications among Egyptian patients with T2DM.MethodsA total ...

The objective of this review was to understand the role of trace elements in the form of supplements in metabolic control of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). A systematic research was performed following PRISMA recommendations. Although 3236 studies were identified, only 18 studies composed of nine animal studies and nine clinical studies were included in this review. The included trace elements were Chromium (Cr), Selenium (Se), Zinc (Zn) and Vanadium (V). The time, dose and type of supplement varied among the studies. Se, Cr, Zn and V improved glycemic profile and antioxidant status while Se, Cr and Zn affected lipid pro...

Abstract Helicobacter pylori is one of the most common human pathogens that can cause gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, including simple gastritis, gastric ulcer, and malignant gastritis. In some cases, such as immunodeficiency and underlying diseases, it can be problematic as opportunistic infections. Diabetes mellitus (type 2) (T2DM) is one of the H. pylori underlying diseases. Since GI problems are observed in diabetic patients, it is necessary to treat H. pylori infection. In this review, we aimed to evaluate the possible relationship between H. pylori and T2DM according to epidemiological surveys of 70 studies...
