Microalbuminuria (MA) is a well-known predictor of cardiovascular disease and mortality in adults. However, these relationships remain unclear in adolescents. A few studies on association between MA and obesity have been conducted in adolescents. However, the association between MA and growth parameters such as height has not been studied, despite the fact that adolescence is a period of rapid physiological change. We, therefore, aimed to evaluate the association between MA and growth parameters, and the association between MA and obesity related cardiovascular risk factors after adjusting for growth...

Feeding animals glucose, fructose, sucrose, and fat-enriched diets can lead to diet-induced hyperglycemia, severity of which largely depends on type and concentration of nutrients used and length of dietary intervention. As a strategy of dietary intervention, we adopted glucose-enriched diet, drinking water, and intraperitoneal (i.p.) glucose injection at the dose previously determined to be effective to establish a sustained hyperglycemia over a period of 2 weeks. In our current study, we used 4 groups of Sprague Dawley rats: control, glucose-treated, glucose+tempol, and glucose+captopril-treated groups...

Introduction: Metabolism of nicotine has implications for addiction and may be altered in people with type 2 diabetes. Thus, our objective was to analyze nicotine metabolism in adults with and without type 2 diabetes who smoke. Methods: From an existing cross-sectional study, we analyzed nicotine metabolism in urine of 148 smokers, 36 type 2 diabetics (insulin or antidiabetic medication use and/or fasting glucose >126 mg/dL), and 112 non-diabetics. Nicotine metabolism was quantified as the nicotine metabolite ratio (NMR) = trans-3'-hydroxycotinine (3HC) divided by COT...

BACKGROUND: In persons with chronic kidney disease (CKD), hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) may be a problematic measure of glycemic control. Glycated albumin and fructosamine have been proposed as better markers of hyperglycemia in CKD. We investigated associations of HbA1c, glycated albumin, and fructosamine with fasting glucose by CKD categories. METHODS: Cross-sectional analysis of 1,665 Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study participants with diagnosed diabetes aged 65 years or older...

Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is the most important marker of hyperglycaemia in diabetes mellitus. We show that d-ribose reacts with haemoglobin, thus yielding HbA1c. Using mass spectrometry, we detected glycation of haemoglobin with d-ribose produces 10 carboxylmethyllysines (CMLs). The first-order rate constant of fructosamine formation for d-ribose was approximately 60 times higher than that for d-glucose at the initial stage. Zucker Diabetic Fatty (ZDF) rat, a common model for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), had high levels of d-ribose and HbA1c, accompanied by a decrease of transketolase (TK) in the liver...

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects 1 in 300 children by age 18. T1D is caused by inflammation-induced loss of insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells, leading to high blood glucose and a host of downstream complications. Although multiple genes are associated with T1D risk, only 5% of genetically susceptible individuals actually develop clinical disease. Moreover, a growing number of T1D cases occur in geographic clusters and among children with low risk genotypes. These observations suggest that environmental factors contribute to T1D etiology...

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the leading cause of kidney disease; however, there are no early biomarkers and no cure. Thus, there is a large unmet need to predict which individuals will develop nephropathy and to understand the molecular mechanisms that govern this susceptibility. We compared the glomerular transcriptome from mice with distinct susceptibilities to DN at four weeks after induction of diabetes, but before histologic injury, and identified differential regulation of genes that modulate inflammation...

Deepti Pandita, Neelam Kumari, Viney Lather
The current investigation involves the development of a thermodynamically stable and dilutable self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery system (SNEDDS) for tolbutamide, a poorly water soluble hypoglycemic drug, in order to achieve higher water solubility and enhanced dissolution rate which in turn improves its oral bioavailability. Pseudo-ternary phase diagrams suggested the suitability of oleic acid (lipid), Tween 20 (surfactant) and PEG 400 (co-surfactant) for developing the SNEEDS formulations. The optimal SNEDDS formulation having mean globule diameter, viscosity, polydispersity value of 58...

Euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (EDKA) is a clinical triad comprising increased anion gap metabolic acidosis, ketonemia or ketonuria and normal blood glucose levels <200 mg/dL. This condition is a diagnostic challenge as euglycemia masquerades the underlying diabetic ketoacidosis. Thus, a high clinical suspicion is warranted, and other diagnosis ruled out. Here, we present two patients on regular insulin treatment who were admitted with a diagnosis of EDKA. The first patient had insulin pump failure and the second patient had urinary tract infection and nausea, thereby resulting in starvation...

Droplet manipulation over open surfaces allows one to perform assays with a large degree of control and high throughput, making them appealing for applications in drug screening or (bio)analysis. However, the design, manufacturing and operation of these systems comes with high technical requirements. In this study we employ a commercial, low-friction, superhydrophobic coating, Ultra-Ever Dry(®), on a 3D-printed microfluidic device. The device features individual droplet compartments, which allow the manipulation of discrete droplets (10-50 μL) actuated by gravity alone...
