Kim Sangyong , Kim Jinhwa

Aims: Diabetes is an important health condition in the aging population. The risk of depression is increased in older adults and should therefore be screened and managed. Especially, it is important to early detect and improvement of depression in older adults with diabetes because it is associated with glucose control and development of diabetic complication. We evaluated the prevalence of depression in diabetic older adults and identified associated independent risk factors ...

Mean platelet volume reflects framingham risk score in intermediate hyperglycemia

Kim Sangyong , Kim Jinhwa , So Junghae

Background and aims: Intermediate hyperglycemia has been established to increase cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. The increased platelet activity is believed to play a central role in pathogenesis of CVD. Mean platelet volume (MPV) and urinary 11-dehydro-thromboxane B2 (11-dehydro-TxB2) level have been validated as a reliable and non-invasive marker for platelet activity. The objective was to evaluate the association between these markers and CVD risk b...
