Introduction: It has been shown that type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) could affect bone metabolism through several mechanism and it may increases risk for osteoporosis. Glucose lowering therapies including metformin has also been reported to may effect on bone turnover. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of metformin therapy on bone resorption and formation markers in newly diagnosed patients with T2DM.Method/design: Study population consisted of 37...

Introduction: Increasing evidence suggesting an integral role of vitamin D in skeletal muscle function. The relationship between muscle strength and vitamin D status has been investigated to some degree in older populations, however there has been very little research in younger adult women. This study aims to measure the effects of vitamin D on handgrip strength in young adult women.Method: A total of 141 healthy women with mean age of 33.8±6.8 wer...

Homeostasis of the body weight is maintaining by the interactions between the different sections of the brain and peripheral tissues. Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) is a method that investigates the microscopic motion of the water particules in tissues and also depends on measurement of the signal variations in tissues which is connected with the kinetic energy of the molecules called; molecular diffusion. The purpose of this work was to detect brain diffu...
