Large scale, multi-center, controlled studies have demonstrated the importance of glycemic control, as indicated by HbA1c levels, in reducing the incidence and progression of diabetic complications. However, Yasue Omori, who began practicing medicine in Tokyo 60 years ago, in 1957, has the vantage point of long term continuing care for women with type 2 diabetes, some for several decades. An internist who specializes in diabetic pregnancy, Dr. Omori began caring for many of her patients during their pregnancies and continued to care for them following their deliveries, some now more than 50 years...

BACKGROUND: The effects of statins on renal outcomes in patients with diabetic kidney disease (DKD) were conflicting. The aim of the study was to investigate whether statins treatment could affect renal outcomes [albuminuria or proteinuria, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)] for DKD patients. METHODS: We searched the PubMed, OVID (including MEDLINE and EMBASE), Web of Science and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating the efficacy of statins in DKD patients were selected...

INTRODUCTION: Sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors could potentially alter calcium and phosphate homeostasis and may increase the risk of bone fracture. METHODS: The current meta-analysis was conducted to investigate the fracture risk among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated with SGLT2 inhibitors. Randomized controlled trials that compared the efficacy of SGLT2 inhibitors to placebo were identified. The risk ratios of fracture among patients who received SGLT2 inhibitors versus placebo were extracted from each study...

BACKGROUND: The association of antiretroviral therapy (ART) with diabetes is inconsistent and varies widely across primary epidemiological studies. A comprehensive and more precise estimate of this association is fundamental to establishing a plausible causal link between ART and diabetes. METHODS: We identified epidemiological studies that compared mean fasting plasma glucose (FPG) concentrations and proportions of diabetes and metabolic syndrome between HIV-infected patients naïve and exposed to ART...

BACKGROUND: The effect of lixisenatide - a prandial once-daily glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist - on glycaemic control in patients with inadequately controlled type 2 diabetes (T2DM), stratified by baseline β-cell function was assessed. METHODS: The 24-week GetGoal-M, -P and -S trials evaluated the efficacy and safety of lixisenatide in combination with oral antidiabetic agents. This post hoc analysis used data from patients receiving lixisenatide in these trials, divided into matched cohorts by propensity scoring and stratified according to baseline homeostasis model assessment of β-cell function (HOMA-β) index levels (high HOMA-β: > median HOMA-β [28...

BACKGROUND: Both types of diabetes are characterized by beta-cell failure and death, leading to insulin insufficiency. Very limited information is currently available about the ultrastructural alterations of beta cells in human diabetes. Our aim was to provide a comprehensive ultrastructural analysis of human pancreatic islets in type 1 (T1D) and type 2 (T2D) diabetic patients. METHODS: We performed a morphometric electron microscopy evaluation of beta cells obtained from the pancreas of 8 nondiabetic (ND), 5 T1D, and 8 T2D organ donors...

BACKGROUND: Secreted frizzled-related protein-5 (Sfrp5) is a novel adipokine, and it has been found to link insulin resistance with diabetes. Animal studies have revealed the role of Sfrp5 in regulating lipid and glucose metabolism. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between Sfrp5 and the metabolic syndrome (MetS) in a cross-sectional study. METHODS: We conducted a series of cross-sectional studies of Chinese population including 194 control participants and 90 MetS patients...

BACKGROUND: Evidence links the lectin pathway of complement activation to diabetic kidney disease. Upon carbohydrate-recognition by pattern-recognition molecules, eg, mannan-binding lectin (MBL), the MBL-associated serine protease (MASP-2) is activated and initiates the complement cascade. The MASP2 gene encodes MASP-2 and the alternative splice product MBL-associated protein 19 (MAp19). Both MAp19 and MASP-2 circulate in complex with MBL. We tested the hypothesis that MAp19 and MASP-2 concentrations predict the risk of incident microalbuminuria...

BACKGROUND: Advanced glycation end-products are a heterogeneous group of molecules that are formed during reactions between reducing sugars and proteins. Advanced glycation end-products are thought to play a role in several diseases, including diabetes mellitus and can be measured non-invasively using skin autofluorescence (AF). The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate associations between skin AF and cardio-metabolic, lifestyle, and dietary factors within a general population...

BACKGROUND: Compare glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c ) diagnostic tests for prediabetes and diabetes with plasma glucose criteria and compare the metabolic profiles of people classified by HbA1c versus by glucose levels. METHODS: Participants were recruited for the San Juan Overweight Adults Longitudinal Study. The participants were primarily Hispanic (98%), without previously diagnosed diabetes, and aged 40 to 65 years. Participants classified as normal glycemic, prediabetes, or diabetes on the basis of baseline HbA1c and plasma glucose criteria were compared with respect to baseline cardiometabolic factors...

BACKGROUND: Shunting of glycolytic intermediates into the pentose phosphate pathway has been suggested to protect from hyperglycaemia-induced microvascular damage. We hypothesized that genetic variability in the gene encoding transketolase, a key pentose phosphate pathway enzyme, contributes to early nerve dysfunction in recent-onset diabetes. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, we assessed nine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the transketolase gene, plasma methylglyoxal concentrations, and clinical and quantitative measures of peripheral nerve function in 165 type 1 and 373 type 2 diabetic patients with a diabetes duration up to 1 year...

In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), the safety and efficacy of nonvitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) vs warfarin according to diabetes mellitus (DM) status are not completely characterized. We performed a meta-analysis to clarify whether in these patients the strategy of oral anticoagulation should be tailored to diabetes status. In this study-level meta-analysis, we included 4 randomized phase III trials comparing NOACs and warfarin in patients with nonvalvular AF; a total of 18 134 patients with DM and 40 454 without DM were overall considered...

BACKGROUND: Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is poor in patients with persistent diabetic foot ulcers and poor HRQoL predicts worse outcomes in these patients. Amputation is often considered a treatment failure, which is why conservative treatment is generally preferred over amputation. However, it is unclear whether minor amputation negatively affects HRQoL compared with conservative treatment in patients with diabetic foot ulcers. METHODS: In the cohort of the multicenter, prospective, observational Eurodiale study, we determined difference in change of HRQoL measured by EQ-5D between patients with a diabetic foot ulcers that healed after conservative treatment (n = 676) and after minor amputation (n = 145)...

BACKGROUND: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) is mediated by autoaggressive T effector cells with an underlying regulatory T-cell (Treg) defect. Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent in T1D, which can aggravate immune dysfunction. High-dose vitamin D treatment may enhance Tregs and improve metabolism in T1D patients. METHODS: In a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial with crossover design, patients received either for 3 months cholecalciferol 4000 IU/d followed by 3 months placebo or the sequential alternative...
