Castelblanco Esmeralda , Ramirez-Morros Anna , Hernandez Marta , Granado Minerva , Betriu Angels , Puig-Domingo Manel , Alonso Nuria , Mauricio Didac

Introduction: The presence and type of atherosclerotic plaque is associated with future cardiovascular events (CVE). We previously described that increased frequency of plaques is associated with specific features in type 1 diabetes. The aim of the present study was to investigate the characteristics of atherosclerotic plaques in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D).Methods: A cross-sectional study of 174 subjects with carotid atherosclerotic pla...

Palanca Ana , Castelblanco Esmeralda , Betriu Angels , Valdivielso Jose M , Perpinan Hector , Puig-Domingo Manel , Fernandez Elvira , Mauricio Didac , Alonso Nuria

Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with and without diabetes mellitus (DM). Traditional cardiovascular risk factors fail to fully account for the increase in cardiovascular risk in these patients. The NEFRONA study is a large, multicentre, prospective, observational study that evaluated atheromatous disease (AD) in the carotid and femoral territories in a large cohort of Spanish CKD ...

Simo-Servat Andreu , Ibarra Montserrat , Libran Mireia , Alonso Nuria , Rodriguez Silvia , Ramos Montse , Perea Veronica , Garcia-Pascual Luis , Orois Aida , Quiros Carmen , Barahona Constanzo Maria Jose

Aim: Bariatric surgery (BS) modifies body composition. The aim of the study was to establish the first step toward the introduction of the ultrasound (US) and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) in the evaluation of body composition before and after BS. In addition, as obesity was shown to be related to global cognitive decline, we aim to determine possible changes in cognitive test before and after BS.Material and Methods: a prospective pilot study o...

Introduction: Patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) present a high prevalence of autoimmune associated diseases. Recently, we described a prevalence of latent pernicious anemia (LPA) of 12.4% in DM1.Objectives: A 5-year follow-up study of a cohort of DM1 patients in order to evaluate the evolution of biochemical markers of LPA, defined as a serum pepsinogen I (PI) concentration below normal limits.Material and methods: One h...
