Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 is a risk factor for diabetic kidney disease
The prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) has increased rapidly in recent years, and the number of patients with T2D is expected to rise to 552 million by 2030[1]. Diabetic kidney disease (DKD), one of the most frequent complications of diabetes, is a major cause of the development and progression of chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease[2]. However, beyond angiotensin II-receptor blockers and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, therapeutic options to block the progression of DKD are limited and other strategies to preserve kidney function are needed[3].

Variation of carbohydrate intake in diabetic children on carbohydrate counting
Nutritional management is one of the key elements in treating type 1 diabetes and education [1]. The International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) recommends that 50 to 55% of the daily energy intake consists of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are therefore the main element in the diet of the diabetic patient. Blood glucose control is defined by a hemoglobinA1c (HbA1c) target of less than 7.5% (58 mmol/mol) according to ISPAD [2]. The recommendations also include the absence of severe or frequent moderate hypoglycemia and pre- and postprandial blood glucose targets. (Source: Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice)

Negative pressure wound therapy promoted wound healing by suppressing inflammation via down-regulating MAPK-JNK signaling pathway in diabetic foot patients
Inflammation is a host protective response to tissue injury and infection. Upon recognition of a pathogen, resident macrophages initiate an early inflammation response that recruits immune system including neutrophils and monocytes to produce inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin- β (IL-β) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) [1,2]. This overwhelming “cytokine storm” can result in deregulation of tissue matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), and limit the formation and maturation of granulation tissue [3].
