Prevalence and risk factors of periodontitis in diabetic patients with or without metabolic syndrome

Hong Soo Min , Hur Yang Im , Koo Ho Seok

Introduction: This study examined prevalence and risk factors of peri-odontitis in representative samples of Korean adults, with and without diabetes mellitus (DM). Additionally, we did subgroup analysis in diabetic patients with or without metabolic syndrome.Methods: This study analyzed data from the 2010 to 2015 the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) in South Korea which include periodontitis and the parameter of metabolic...

Toe-brachial index is associated more strongly with progression of diabetic nephropathy than ankle-brachial index in type 2 diabetic patients

Cho Dong-Hyeok , Chung Jin-Ook , Chung Dong-Jin , Chung Min-Young

Background and aims: Atherosclerosis is more prevalent among people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) than among those with normal renal function. Ankle-brachial index (ABI) and toe-brachial index (TBI) are a simple useful method for assessing peripheral atherosclerosis. The aim of our study was to investigate whether ABI or TBI were more strongly associated with progression of diabetic nephropathy such as change of urinary albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), serum creatinine leve...

The BMI and skeletal muscle mass as a risk factor of carotid atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes

Kim Se-Hwa , Kim Soo-Kyung , Choi Young-Ju , Park Seok-Won , Lee Eun-Jig , Cho Yong-Wook , Huh Kap-Bum

Background: The body mass index (BMI) is the most widely used method of assessing fat accumulation, and is recognized as an independent risk factor for cardiometabolic diseases. However, there might be substantial variations in the fat or muscle amount among persons with a similar BMI. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether BMI and skeletal muscle mass (SMM) estimated from by bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) are associated with carotid atherosclerosis in...

Is liver stiffness associated with diabetic complications in patients with type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease?

Perdomo Carolina M , Gargallo Javier , Llavero Maria , Garcia Marta , Bojorquez Alejandro , Inarrairaegui Mercedes , Herrero Jose I , Silva Camilo , Fruhbeck Gema , Salvador Javier , Escalada Javier

Aim: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and type 2 Diabetes (T2D) are common conditions that frequently co-exist. Studies have shown an increase likelihood of micro and macrovascular complications in this population, as well, as an increased risk of developing more severe forms of liver disease. The aim of this study was to identify diabetic complications in patients with both diseases and search for an association with liver stiffness assessed by Liver Elastography (LE...

Effects of post-transplant and pre-existing diabetes mellitus on graft function after kidney transplantation

Ersoy Alparslan , Oruc Aysegul , Guney Bahriye , Akgur Suat , Yildiz Abdulmecit , Ersoy Canan

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most serious comorbidities in kidney transplant recipients. New onset diabetes after kidney transplantation (NODAT) is a common and an important complication following solid organ transplantation. It is associated with poor graft function and increased cardiovascular complications. Therefore, management of hyperglycemia after transplantation is important to reduce diabetes-related risks. We aimed to compare the effects of pre-existing DM an...

Glucose variability and pregnancy outcomes in gestational diabetes mellitus: a prospective study

Marquez-Pardo Rosa , Baena-Nieto Maria-Gloria , Garcia-Garcia-Doncel Lourdes , Cruzado-Begines Concepcion , Torres-Barea Isabel-Maria

Introduction: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with an increase of maternal-fetal complications. Continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) detects parameters of glycemic variability through which it could be predicted the appearance of maternal-fetal complications.Methods: Women with GDM at 26–32 gestational weeks were allocated a 6-day CGM system (IproTM2) right after diagnosis in an observational prospective study. It...

Patients with community acquired pneumonia are three times more likely to die if they have concomitant diabetes mellitus

Joy Elsa , Singh Navjyot , Jacob Jubbin

Objective: To compare the clinical features, mortality and morbidity outcomes in patients with diabetes mellitus and patients without diabetes mellitus, who are hospitalized with community acquired pneumonia (CAP).Methods: This cross sectional study included 175 patients (49 patients with diabetes and 126 without diabetes) admitted with CAP to a tertiary care hospital. The study included both quantitative and qualitative variables, which were compared us...

Diabetic patients are old as theirs feet are old:the strongest association of foot pathology with mortality in diabetes

Tesic Dragan , Stokic Edita , Mitrovic Milena , Medic/Stojanoska Milica , Bajkin Ivana , Icin Tijana , Tesic Dragica , Tomic Mirjana

Background and aims: Foot lesions (amputations, ulcerations) are the consequence of neuro-vascular complications. Cardiovascular risk factors are similar for both. Thus, we carried out a prospective 5-year study to examine the effects of established complications and classical risk factors on mortality in diabetic patients.Materials and methods: During the previous 5 years we analyzed 244 patients attending a diabetes clinic. The International Working Gr...

Outcomes of hyperglycemia in patients with and without diabetes mellitus hospitalized for infectious diseases

Gorshtein Alexander , Shimon Ilan , Akirov Amit

Context: Hyperglycemia is common among patients with and without diabetes mellitus (DM) hospitalized for infectious diseases. The long-term outcomes of hyperglycemia have not been adequately studied in this population.Objective: Examine the prognostic implications of hyperglycemia and the importance of glycemic control in patients with and without DM during hospitalization for infectious diseases.Methods: Historical prospectively c...

Self-reported low-energy fractures and associated risk factors in diabetic portuguese patients: a cross-sectional population-based study

Furtado Sofia , Rodrigues Ana , Dias Sara , Branco Jaime C , Canhao Helena

Introduction: Patients with diabetes have an increased risk of low-energy bone fractures (LEF). Traditional clinical risk factors and bone mineral densitometry underestimate LEF risk in diabetics. We aim to evaluate the frequency of LEF and associated risk factors in the diabetic Portuguese population.Methods: National, cross-sectional and population-based study to describe the prevalence of self-reported LEF in diabetic subjects over 40 years-old. Estim...

Impaired cortisol and growth hormone counterregulatory responses during severe hypoglycemia in type 2 diabetes mellitus

Rhyu Young A , Jang Ju-Young , Park Sooyoun , Kim Yoonjung , An Jee Hyun , Kim Dong-Lim , Kim Suk Kyeong , Song Kee-Ho

Background: Cortisol and growth hormone elevations are critical counterregulatory responses to severe hypoglycemia. However, the proportion and clinical characteristics of type 2 diabetic patients who fail to show appropriate cortisol and/or growth hormone secretion in response to severe hypoglycemia have not been investigated.Methods: We measured the plasma cortisol and growth hormone levels in type 2 diabetes with severe hypoglycemia (defined as blood ...
