The recent results of the DECLARE-TIMI 58 trial forces a profound reflection about the cardiovascular protection conferred by SGLT-2 inhibitors. DECLARE-TIMI 58, the largest cardiovascular outcome trial in diabetes, failed to show a significant reduction in the risk of major cardiovascular events (MACE) conferred by dapagliflozin compared to placebo. However, a lower rate of hospitalization for heart failure was reported. While the lack of benefits on MACE may seem in contrast with the results of previous SGLT-2 inhibitors cardiovascular outcome trials, DECLARE clearly delineates the real cardiovascular effects of SGLT-2 inhibitors, which mainly tackle heart failure...

BACKGROUND: Previous works indicated that the stress on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) affected non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, there is no clear evident on the effect of the regulation of ER stress by ACE2 on the prevention of NAFLD. METHODS: HepG2 cells were treated with Tg (thapsigargin) or PA (palmitic acid). We analyzed ACE2 expression using Western-blotting analyses. ER stress-related proteins were detected in ACE2 knockout mice and Ad-ACE2-treated db/db mice by immunofluorescence or Western-blotting analyses...

Apolipoprotein CIII (ApoCIII), a small protein that resides on the surface of lipoprotein particles, is a key regulator of triglyceride metabolism. The inhibition of lipoprotein lipase (LPL), the increased assembly and secretion of very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) and the decreased reuptake of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRLs) by the liver are mechanisms associating elevated serum ApoCIII levels and hypertriglyceridemia. ApoCIII concentration is high in individuals with diabetes mellitus indicating a possible positive correlation with impairment of glucose metabolism...

OBJECTIVE: Cathepsin S is highly expressed in subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue. Cathepsin S correlates with central obesity and contributes to the formation and progression of atherosclerosis. Here, we sought to evaluate the association of serum cathepsin S with metabolic syndrome (MS) in overweight and obese Chinese adults. METHODS: We evaluated serum cathepsin S levels in a cross-sectional sample of 781 overweight and obese Chinese adults by ELISA. Glucose, insulin, lipid profile, inflammatory markers, and adipokines were also measured...

Objective To elucidate whether the PF-combined definition of metabolic syndrome (MetS) would show a better predictive ability for cause-specific mortality than the common MetS. Methods The data were derived from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 1999 through 2002. We investigated three types of MetS including WCMetS, PFMetS, and PF-combined definition MetS. The main outcome was to evaluate the predictive ability of the newly defined MetS for time to cause-specific mortality. The secondary outcomes were the relationships between the PF percentage and C-reactive protein (CRP) and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) to clarify the gender discrepancy...

AIMS: The risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is increased in overweight and obese women potentially involving secreted mediators from adipose tissue. Our main aim was to evaluate if circulating adipokines and monocyte/macrophage markers were dysregulated in GDM and the influence body mass and indices of glucose metabolism had on this association. We further explored if early detection of these markers improved prediction of GDM and if they remained modified during long-term follow-up...

AIMS: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) represents the main cause of blindness among adults in the industrialized Countries. Use of telemedicine could offer an easy, smart specialist fundus oculi examination, as well as putting in a screening program many patients who otherwise would be excluded. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The NO Blind is a transversal, multicentre, observational study. Its pilot phase involved nine public outpatient clinics for six months. As endpoint of the study, we assessed the prevalence of DR by retinography in a subset of the Italian population...

AIMS: Diabetes treatment algorithms recommend intensive intervention in those with a shorter duration of disease. Screening provides opportunities for earlier multifactorial cardiovascular risk factor control. Using data from the ADDITION-Leicester study (NCT00318032), we estimated the effects of this approach on modelled risk of diabetes-related complications in screen-detected patients. METHODS: A total of 345 (41% South Asian) people with screen-detected type 2 diabetes were cluster randomised to receive 5 years of (1) intensive multifactorial risk factor intervention or (2) standard treatment according to national guidance...

Background Statins are widely used to lower cholesterol concentrations in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. The treatment increases the risk of muscle pain (myalgia) and of type 2 diabetes. However, the underlying mechanisms remain disputed. Methods We investigated whether statin induced myalgia is coupled to impaired glucose homeostasis using oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), intravenous glucose tolerance test (IVGTT) and the hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp. We performed a cross-sectional study of statin users without CVD (primary prevention) stratified into a statin myalgic (M; n=25) and a non-myalgic (NM; n=39) group as well as a control group (C; n=20) consisting of non-statin users...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic disease that has reached the levels of a global epidemic. In order to achieve optimal glucose control it is often necessary to rely on combination therapy of multiple drugs or insulin, because uncontrolled glucose levels result in T2DM progression and enhanced risk of complications and mortality. Several anti-hyperglycemic agents have been developed over time, and T2DM pharmacotherapy should be prescribed based on suitability for the individual patient's characteristics...

Diabetic foot ulceration is a major complication associated with high morbidity. Little evidence exists on which interventions are effective at preventing ulceration. Participants who are adherent to self-care behaviours have significantly better outcomes. Motivational interviewing is an intervention that has been used successfully for conditions where adherence is important, such as reduction of obesity and HbA1c levels. A systematic review was conducted to determine whether motivational interviewing is effective at improving adherence for the prevention of Diabetic Foot Ulceration...
