Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is recognized as one of the most common endocrinopathies in women of reproductive age, associated with metabolic sequelae which includes increased risk factors for impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). The adverse effects of DM2 affects a woman throughout her lifespan. Health care expenditure of DM2 highlights the need for prevention through appropriate screening, diagnosis and intervention. Lifestyle modification (LSM) programs that include diet and/or physical activity are suggested for patients characterized as prediabetic to delay the onset of adult DM2...

AIM: Few studies have examined whether longitudinal changes in visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT), independent of each other, are associated with the risk of developing metabolic syndrome (MetS). The objective of this study was to examine the longitudinal effects of VAT and SAT on MetS and metabolic risk factors in a multi-ethnic sample of Canadians followed for 5-years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 598 adults of the Multicultural Community Health Assessment Trial (M-CHAT) were included in this study...

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is associated with multiple cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF) including endothelial dysfunction (ED) and presence of metabolic syndrome (MS). The probable reason suggested for elevated CVRF in PCOS is oxidative stress (OS), which is an integral factor in cardiometabolic complications (CMC) seen in PCOS women. The interrelated mechanisms by which CVRF instigate clinical manifestation plays a crucial role in identification of a strategy to treat different comorbidities in PCOS...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a common type of diabetes and considered as multifactorial disease. Apelin is an adipokine which secreted from white adipose tissue and involved in various functions such as insulin sensitivity and food intake. Many studies showed that apelin has a crucial role in diabetes and its concentration will change in relation with insulin resistance. In this review, we will discuss the roles of apelin in energy metabolism and pathogenesis of diabetes and explain why apelin can be a good candidate adipokine to promoting insulin sensitivity...

BACKGROUND: Family history is one of the non-modifiable risk factors for ischemic stroke. Atherosclerosis and thrombosis are the two major mechanisms for cardiovascular disease and stroke. Screening of family members is an important method to identify individuals at risk. Therefore, this study was planned to assess the atherosclerotic risk factors in first-degree relatives of patients with ischemic stroke. METHODOLOGY: Case group included 40 first-degree relatives of ischemic stroke patients between 30 and 50 years of age...
