BACKGROUND: Given that diabetes-associated complications are closely associated with neuroinflammation, it is imperative to study potential changes in neuroinflammatory modulators in the central nervous system of diabetic primates. METHODS: The mRNA levels of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines, toll-like receptors (TLR), growth factors, and cannabinoid receptors were compared in the spinal dorsal horn (SDH) and thalamus of naturally occurring type 2 diabetic monkeys and an age-matched control group using reverse transcription and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction...

Approximately 216,000 bariatric surgery (BS) procedures were performed in 2016; an increase from 158,000 in 2011.1 This increase may be attributable to the rising awareness of beneficial effects on health and the improving safety profile of BS. According to the National Institutes of Health consensus criteria, patients qualify for bariatric surgery if they have a body mass index (BMI) ≥35 kg/m2 but <40 kg/m2 along with at least one obesity-related comorbidity or have a BMI ≥40 kg/m2 .

Maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY) is the commonest form of monogenic diabetes, resulting from dominant mutations in one of fourteen genes that regulate beta-cell function (HNF4A, GCK, HNF1A, PDX1, HNF1B, NEUROD1, KLF11, CEL, PAX4, INS, BLK, ABCC8,KCNJ11 and APPL1 1,2 ). MODY accounts for 2-2.5% of childhood diabetes 3 , yet MODY genetic screening is uncommon, even in highly suggestive families, and when performed often limited to the commonest genes (e.g.HNF1A and GCK) 4 .

BACKGROUND: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) type 1 diabetes is considered to be a risk factor for developing cognitive difficulties. The present study examined if Chinese children with T1DM differ in cognitive performance from healthy control (HC) children, and whether cognitive dysfunction is related to glycemic control. METHODS: Using a cross-sectional design, we administered cognitive tests, including general intelligence tests, to pediatric T1DM patients (N = 105) and HC participants (N = 90)...

BACKGROUND: Bile acids (BAs) conduct crucial signals in human metabolism. Correlations between human plasma BA alterations and insulin secretion defects and type 2 diabetes (T2D) progression have been insufficiently studied. This study was performed to explore the trajectories of human plasma BA alterations and their association with the insulin secretion dynamics during a two-step hyperglycemic clamp. METHODS: Eleven healthy (NGT) and 33 drug-naïve T2D subjects (T2Ds) were enrolled to undertake a two-step hyperglycemic clamp...

BACKGROUND: Statins reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes. We examined the prevalence of statin use and assessed the long-term adherence and persistence among people aged ≥65 years with diabetes. METHODS: Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme data covering a 10% random sample of the Australian population were analysed. Among older adults with diabetes, the yearly prevalence of statin use was compared via Poisson regression modelling using 2006 as the reference year...

Diabetes affects ~9% of the US population, but accounts for 25% hospitalizations (1). Persons with diabetes have 40% higher 90-day rehospitalization rates than persons not having diabetes, with 30-day rehospitalization rates of 14.4-22.7%, 90-day rates above 26%, and 1-year rates of 30%, with evidence that there is a high-risk subset of ~10% of discharged persons with diabetes accounting for nearly two thirds of rehospitalizations (1). In a study of 124,967 persons age 50 or more hospitalized in California in 2006, 26...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes mellitus (DM) complications are associated with vessel ischemic injury. Angiogenesis is a therapeutic strategy in the treatment of diabetic foot. Previous studies have suggested that low-molecular-weight fucoidan (LMWF) relaxed vessels through eNOS phosphorylation in diabetic rats. This study aims to investigate the possible angiogenic effect of LMWF in diabetic peripheral arterial disease (PAD). METHODS: Diabetic db/db mice and age-matched C57BL/6 mice were challenged with femoral artery ligation followed by LMWF or cilostazol treatment for 7 weeks...

Basal-bolus regimen is the best treatment for children with type 1 diabetes (T1D), but requires several insulin injections a day1 . In fact, the body's physical growth, the management of frequent snacks and mistakes in carb-counting and in insulin boluses require the ability to promptly adapt insulin scheme2,3 .
