Arterial hypertension (HT) and other vascular pre-existing conditions (PEC) generate asymptomatic brain damage which increases the occurrence of stroke and cognitive decline. The aim of this work was to explore if serum antibodies against the NR2 subunit of the NMDA receptor (NR2Ab) could predict subclinical brain damage (SBD) in hypertensive patients with PEC. Forty seven neurologically asymptomatic hypertensive subjects were classified according to the number of PEC (retinopathy, overweight/obesity, diabetes mellitus and dyslipidemia)...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a complex and heterogeneous disorder which in its most common manifestation arises from insulin resistance and later insulin insufficiency. Type 2 diabetes is characterised by impaired insulin sensitivity and diagnosed as hyperglycaemia. Because of its cardiovascular consequences, Type 2 diabetes represents one of the world's leading causes of mortality and morbidity. Drug discovery and development are required to produce better ways to prevent, treat and manage diabetes and its complications...

Diet has an important role in regulating intestinal permeability and subsequently the risk for metabolic disorders. In this observational study, we examined whether serum intestinal permeability marker zonulin, could be used as a predictor for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Serum zonulin concentration was measured in early pregnancy in overweight or obese pregnant women (n=88) at risk for developing GDM. Serum zonulin was associated with higher odds of GDM (adjusted OR for 1 ng ml(-1) increase in zonulin: 1...

Diabetes mellitus is associated with extensive morbidity and mortality in any human community. It is well understood that the burden of diabetes is attributed to chronic progressive damage in major end-organs, but it is underappreciated that the most superficial and transparent organ affected by diabetes is the cornea. Different corneal components (epithelium, nerves, immune cells and endothelium) underpin specific systemic complications of diabetes. Just as diabetic retinopathy is a marker of more generalized microvascular disease, corneal nerve changes can predict peripheral and autonomic neuropathy, providing a window of opportunity for early treatment...

Hyperglycemia is a common feature of diabetes mellitus, considered as a risk factor for cancer. However, its direct effects in cancer cell behavior are relatively unexplored. Herein we show that high glucose concentration induces aberrant glycosylation, increased cell proliferation, invasion and tumor progression of colon cancer. By modulating the activity of the rate-limiting enzyme, glutamine-fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase (GFAT), we demonstrate that hexosamine biosynthetic pathway (HBP) is involved in those processes...

OBJECTIVE: There is still controversy over the impact of diabetes mellitus (DM) on bone mass in children. Pyridinoline (Pyr) and deoxypyridinoline (DPyr), which stabilize the collagen chains within the extracellular matrix, are known as specific bone turnover markers. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between urinary Pyr and DPyr excretions and bone mineral density (BMD) in children with type 1 DM. METHODS: Serum levels of Ca, phosphorus (P), magnesium (Mg), and parathormone (PTH), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, and urinary excretions of Pyr and DPyr were evaluated in 50 diabetic and 130 healthy control subjects aged between 7 and 15 years...

We aimed to evaluate the effect of adjuvant metformin to intensive insulin therapy in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1DM). A 10 year retrospective study of 2 cohorts was performed. Cohort "MET" (n = 186) consisted of T1DM patients on adjuvant metformin for ≥ 6 months and cohort "CTR" (n = 62) consisted of T1DM patients who refused (n = 25) or adhered <6 months (n = 37) to metformin. HbA1c, BMI and daily insulin dose were registered yearly. A third cross-sectional group "REF" (n = 961) of T1DM patients not offered adjuvant metformin, was used as a reference for baseline comparison...
