BACKGROUND: Zinc-finger BED domain-containing 3 (Zbed3) is a member of the zinc-finger domain protein superfamily. Recent studies have shown that Zbed3 is associated with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, no report has demonstrated the association of Zbed3 with metabolic syndrome (MetS) in humans. The purpose of this study is to examine the association between Zbed3 and MetS in a cross-sectional study. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of a Chinese population, including 167 non-MetS subjects and 144 newly diagnosed MetS (nMetS) patients...

BACKGROUND: Morbid obesity is related to chronic inflammation and many metabolic complications. Interleukin (IL)-6 plays a pivotal pathophysiological role in obesity, and IL-6 trans-signaling through the soluble IL-6 receptor (sIL-6R) has a major proinflammatory effect. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between sIL-6R, adipocyte size, and insulin resistance in morbidly obese individuals. METHODS: We measured concentrations of sIL-6R, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, and lipid parameters and estimated homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) before the patients underwent bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) identifies subjects with increased risk of cardiovascular disease when they have a combination of insulin resistance, obesity, hypertension, hyperglycemia, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), and elevated triglycerides (TGs). Increasing evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency could be associated with diabetes and MetS. The aim is to assess if 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) is correlated with cardiovascular risk components of MetS. METHODS: A cross-sectional study involved 124 diabetic patients with MetS according to International Diabetes Federation definition...

BACKGROUND: Several previous studies have shown that snoring is associated with glucose metabolism and the development of diabetes, but rare study has shown the association between snoring frequency and prediabetes, particularly in China. We hypothesized that individuals who snore might have a higher risk of prediabetes. This study aimed to investigate the association between self-reported snoring and prediabetes in a Chinese population. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed in three large communities of Beijing from December 2011 to August 2012 by recruiting individuals aged ≥40 years old...

The prevention of type 2 diabetes in persons at risk for diabetes is of utmost importance. Physical activity in general and even exercises at moderate intensities such as walking significantly reduce the risk of the development of type 2 diabetes. However, it is still a matter of debate whether lipids and glucose metabolism are differently affected by regular concentric (e.g., uphill walking) and eccentric (e.g., downhill walking) endurance exercise. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of short-term (3 weeks) uphill and downhill walking on glucose metabolism and blood lipids in pre-diabetic middle-aged men in a real world setting...

OBJECTIVE: Although type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients with nephropathy are at high risk for renal and cardiovascular complications, relevant biomarkers have been poorly identified. Because renal impairment may increase biomarker levels, this potentially confounds associations between biomarker levels and risk. To investigate the predictive value of a biomarker in such a setting, we examined baseline levels of growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15), N-terminal prohormone of B-type natriuretic peptide (NTproBNP), and high-sensitivity troponin-T (hs-TnT) in relation to renal and cardiovascular risk in T2D patients with nephropathy...

BACKGROUND: No consensus exists regarding the factors influencing mortality in patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD). This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the impact of various patient characteristics on the risk of mortality in such patients. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Central were searched for studies evaluating the risk factors for mortality in patients undergoing HD. The factors included age, gender, diabetes mellitus (DM), body mass index (BMI), previous cardiovascular disease (CVD), HD duration, hemoglobin, albumin, white blood cell, C-reactive protein (CRP), parathyroid hormone, total iron binding capacity (TIBC), iron, ln ferritin, adiponectin, apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1), ApoA2, ApoA3, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), total cholesterol, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), serum phosphate, troponin T (TnT), and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP)...

OBJECTIVE: Latino adults are 66% more likely to have diabetes relative to non-Latino white adults. Prior research identifies depression as a significant risk factor for metabolic syndrome (MetS), but research examining this among Latinos is lacking. This study sought to examine the links between depression and MetS and clinically significant elevations in cardiovascular disease risk markers of MetS in a sample of community-dwelling older Latinos with type 2 diabetes. METHODS: Participants were 332 community-dwelling older (≥60 years) Latinos with type 2 diabetes who completed the nine-item Patient Health Questionnaire and received a health checkup assessing body mass index (BMI), triglyceride and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels, and blood pressure...

REVIEW
Chan-Hee Jung, Kyung Mook Choi
In patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), whether dietary carbohydrates have beneficial or detrimental effects on cardiometabolic risk factors has drawn attention. Although a high-carbohydrate (HC) diet and a low-carbohydrate (LC) diet have gained popularity for several decades, there is scarce review focusing on the effects of HC diet on glucose, lipids and body weight in patients with T2DM. In this review, we examined recently-published literature on the effects of HC diets on metabolic parameters in T2DM...

Diabetic retinopathy is one of most common diabetic microvascular complications. In recent years the incidence of the disease has increased, hence early diagnosis and treatment are of great importance. In order to find reliable biological indexes to diagnose and treat type-two diabetes mellitus promptly, this study focused on the correlation between Cystatin C (Cys C) and retinopathy of type-two diabetes mellitus patients. One hundred and eighty type-two diabetes mellitus patients and one hundred healthy controls (the control group) were chosen in this study...

BACKGROUND: Hawthorn is one of the popular herbs in many different traditional medicine systems including in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it has long been used for the treatment of hyperglycemia. However, most of its varied biological activities are still remaining unexplored. This study investigated the hypoglycemic effect of hawthorn extracts in type II diabetic (T2DM) rat model. A total of 54 rats were randomly divided into six groups. Normal control group (NC), type II diabetic model group (T2DM, T2DM rats were induced by high fat diet and streptozotocin), high, middle and low concentrations of hawthorn treat groups (HTH , HTM and HTL , T2DM rats were given hawthorn extract at the dose of 50, 100 and 200 mg kg ^-1...

REVIEW
Zhe Huang, Aimin Xu, Bernard M Y Cheung
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 21 belongs to the FGF superfamily that is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, neural development, angiogenesis, and metabolism. FGF21 requires β-Klotho as a co-receptor. Tissues involved in metabolism such as the liver, adipose tissues, skeletal muscle, and pancreas express FGF21. Starvation increases hepatic expression of FGF21, which then acts centrally to increase hepatic gluconeogenesis. FGF21 also increases fatty acid oxidation. This may be relevant in cold exposure, when expression of FGF21 is induced...

Ling Xiao, Guoyu Pan
The enterohepatic circulation of bile acids (BAs) is governed by specific transporters expressed in the liver and the intestine and plays a critical role in the digestion of fats and oils. During this process, the majority of the BAs secreted from the liver is reabsorbed in intestinal epithelial cells via the apical sodium-dependent bile acid transporter (ASBT/SLC10A2) and then transported into the portal vein. Previous studies revealed that regulation of the ASBT involves BAs and cholesterol. In addition, abnormal ASBT expression and function might lead to some diseases associated with disorders in the enterohepatic circulation of BAs and cholesterol homeostasis, such as diarrhoea and gallstones...
