Decreased sucrose preference in humans and rodents with diabetes

Yu J , Kim M

Objective: Craving of sweet foods and sucrose may be a big obstacle for glycemic control of diabetic patients. It is generally believed that diabetic patients may prefer sweet taste. However, few studies have examined sucrose preference in diabetic patients. Therefore, we investigated changes in sucrose preference in diabetic condition.Research design and methods: We performed two-alternative staircase methods and forced-choice tracking procedures to ass...

Comparison of the effects of hormone replacement therapy on bone mineral density, lipid profiles, and biochemical markers of bone metabolism

Namkung J. , Chung Y. , Kwak S. , Kim J. , Kim M.

Objective: To assess the effects of hormone replacement therapy on bone mineral density (BMD), biochemical markers of bone turnover, and lipid profiles in postmenopausal women.Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 199 postmenopausal women who had received care at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Catholic University Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital between January 1994 and December 2008. The patients were divided into the...

Diol-ginsenosides delayed the onset of diabetes possibly by the increase in beta-cell resistance in DP-BB rats

Moon C , Ju C , Kim M , Chae S , Kim G , Chung A

The present study was designed to investigate the effects of Diol-ginsenosides, major active components of Panax Ginseng, on the development of diabetes in the Diabetes Prone-BB rats(DP-BB rats). Administration of Diol-ginsenosides to DP-BB rats from age 3-4 weeks to age 11-12 weeks (daily, 1mg/g body weight) resulted in a markedly delayed the onset of diabetes. Islets of the treated rats showed no insulitis or only early/intermediate-stage insulitis and preserved higher pancr...

Strength training and testosterone treatment have opposing effects on migration inhibitor factor levels in ageing men

Glintborg Dorte , L Christensen Louise , Kvorning Thue , Larsen Rasmus , Brixen Kim , M Hougaard David , Richelsen Bjorn , M Bruun Jens , S Andersen Marianne

Objective: The beneficial effects of testosterone treatment (TT) in men with low normal testosterone levels are debated. Chemokine levels have not previously been evaluated during TT in combination with strength training (ST).Design: A randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study of 6 months TT (gel) in 54 men aged 60–78 years with bioavailable testosterone (BioT) <7.3 nmol/l and waist circumference >94 cm randomized to TT (50–1...

Stem cell lines derived from patients with congenital hyperinsulinism

Eastwood L E , Shepherd R M , Kim J , Skae M , Banjeree I , Hall C , Clayton P , Cosgrove K E , Dunne M

Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI) is primarily a β-cell disorder with an incomplete pathogenesis. The purpose of this study was to generate in vitro models of the disease for the purposes of investigating the relationship between gene defect and β-cell development and function. We obtained post-operative resections of pancreatic tissue from four patients with hyperinsulinism. The tissue was collagenase treated and maintained in cell culture condit...

Glycoalbumin is the best indicator for glycemic variability assessed by continuous glucose monitoring

Suh S. , Joung J. , Park S. , Cho Y. , Jin S. , Kim S. , Kim H. , Bae J. , Kim S. , Chung J. , Min Y. , Lee M. , Lee M. , Kim K. , Kim J.

Aims: We investigated the interrelationship between HbA1c, fructosamine, glycoalbumin (GA), 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG) with glycemic variability data from continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS).Methods: Seventy diabetic patients (mean age of 54 years including seven type 1 diabetes mellitus subjects) were enrolled, and all wore a CGMS for 72 hours. For the parameters of glucose excursion, mean glucose, standard deviation (SD) of glucose, the area ...

A Randomized controlled trial of the effect of internet based mentoring program for type 1 diabetes patients with inadequate glycemic control

Suh S. , Park S. , Cho Y. , Joung J. , Jin S. , Kim S. , Kim H. , Bae J. , Kim S. , Chung J. , Min Y. , Lee M. , Lee M. , Kim K. , Kim J.

Introduction: Widespread availability of internet makes it an attractive communication tool among patients and providers. However, the clinical benefit of telemedical support on diabetes care remains inconclusive. This study is to determine whether an internet based mentoring program can improve glycemic control in type 1 diabetes (T1DM) patients with inadequate glycemic control.Methods: Patients with T1DM on intensive insulin therapy and with HbA1c &#x2...

Diabetes insipidus could be the initial sign of primary hypophysitis

Suh S. , Park S. , Joung J. , Cho Y. , Jin S. , Kim S. , Kim H. , Bae J. , Kim J. , Kim S. , Chung J. , Min Y. , Lee M. , Lee M. , Kim K.

Introduction: The natural history of primary hypophysitis is incompletely understood and best treatment remains controversial.Methods: We performed a retrospective study of 19 patients (mean age of 47 years, fifteen women and four men) who were diagnosed with primary hypophysitis in Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, Korea, from January 2001 to October 2011.Results: Two patients had recent pregnancy and underlying autoimmunity.
