Primary mitochondrial disorders and diabetes mellitus – two case reports

Fadiga Lucia , Saraiva Joana , Oliveira Diana , Lages Adriana , Ventura Mara , Cunha Nelson , Catarino Diana , Guiomar Joana , Silva Diana , Moreno Carolina , Carrilho Francisco

Introduction: Primary mitochondrial disease is a heterogeneous group of disorders of mitochondrial energy metabolism. Neuromuscular symptoms are the main features, but diabetes mellitus (DM) is present in many patients. DM is related to a deficient energy production, which leads to decreased insulin secretion and ultimately to β-cell apoptosis. In most cases, DM has an insidious onset with requirement of insulin 2-4 years after diagnosis. About 20% of cases present with a...

Introduction: Insulin is not an optimal treatment in obese type 2 diabetic patients with insulin resistance. We often introduce it as a last resort hoping to improve the metabolic control of our patients. However it is not always effective, and tends to increase body weight, worsen the global cardiovascular risk and cause hypoglycemias. New drugs such as the GLP-1 agonist receptors can be a better alternative and sometimes allow withdrawal of insulin.Cli...

Introduction: The magnesium deficiency is frequently associated with diabetes mellitus, it is also incriminated in the occurrence of diabetic complications (micro and macrovascular). Our objective was to study the correlation between magnesium deficiency (Mg) and the presence of chronic diabetic complications.Material and methods: Prospective study that concerned type 2 diabetics (T2D). Our patients were subdivided into 2 groups G1 and G2: G1 including 1...

Introduction: Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a feature of type 1 diabetes mellitus, but it can develop in people with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in the presence of precipitating factors. Antipsychotics have been associated with pancreatitis without DKA or hyperglycemia or acidosis with no evidence of pancreatitis. To our knowledge, there are few reports of patients who developed pancreatitis and DKA during treatment with antipsychotis. We present a case of a patient who developed ...

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a state of absolute or relative insulin deficiency characterized by hyperglycemia, metabolic acidosis and ketosis and occurs mainly in type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM). While enhanced lipolysis and inhibition of lipoprotein lipase in DKA lead to typically not severe elevation of triglyceride (TG) level, extreme hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) is rarely seen. If complicated with acute pancreatitis (AP), DKA and HTG form a scarcely reported triad, controve...

The prevalence of depressive symptoms in patients suffering from type 2 diabetes is commonly acknowledged. Even mild depression is recognized as clinically relevant for the general health outcomes in this vulnerable patient group. Research in this area has been focused on biochemical markers reflecting common pathological processes of insulin resistance, inflammation and oxidative damage, all being assumed to be interconnected in both diabetes and depression. Most of the studi...

Acute hyperglycemia is known to alter mood state and impairs cognitive performance in patients with diabetes mellitus. However, association of acute psychosis (in the absence of cognitive disturbances) with hyperglycemia ...
