The α-glucosidase inhibitors are considered as important agents in drug discovery against diabetes mellitus. Molecular docking and quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) were performed based on a series of tetracyclic oxindole derivatives to elucidate key structural properties affecting inhibitory activity and support the design of new α-glucosidase inhibitors. The molecular docking results demonstrate that at least two hydrogen bonds between Thr681 and Arg676 residues and the oxygen atoms in amid groups have an important role in the optimum binding of inhibitors...

Diabetic kidney disease is the main cause of end-stage kidney disease. However, the clinical manifestations of diabetic kidney disease are diverse. Therefore, the clinical classification of diabetic kidney disease is clinically important and valuable. In Japan, two clinical staging systems divided by the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and albuminuria can be used for diabetic kidney disease: the CKD risk classification and the Japanese classification of diabetic nephropathy. The Japanese classification of diabetic nephropathy and the CKD risk classification are similar; however, these two classification systems show different frequencies of outcomes...

Importance: Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Existing literature has adjusted for obesity in combination with other confounders, which does not allow estimating the contribution of obesity alone on the association of PTSD with incident T2DM. Objective: The current study was designed to determine if obesity accounted for the association between PTSD and incident T2DM. Design, Setting, and Participants: This cohort study used data from Veterans Health Administration medical records collected from patients with PTSD and without PTSD from 2008 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) may develop hypoglycemia as an adverse effect of insulin therapy. Hypoglycemia has dangerous consequences that result from neuroglycopenia and hypersecretion of counter-regulatory hormones. Patients who recognize early symptoms of hypoglycemia can initiate self-treatment and rectify the situation. Impaired awareness of hypoglycemia (IAH) predisposes patients to severe hypoglycemia and unconsciousness. OBJECTIVE: To assess prevalence of IAH, intensity of hypoglycaemic symptoms, frequency of severe hypoglycemia and factors associated with IAH in patients with insulin-treated T2DM...
