Introduction: It has been shown with many studies that sulphonylureas may have a negative effect on parameters of insulin resistance while improving glucose regulation. However not all of the sulphonylureas have the same effect. This analysis assessed the different effects of sulphonylureas on some metabolic parameters of insulin resistance.Method: Newly diagnosed 25 T2DM individuals who were naive of oral antidiabetic therapy were recruited and randomiz...

Carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) highly correlates with cardiovascular events in type 2 diabetes (T2DM). We aimed to determine the cardiovascular mortality and morbidity incidence regarding CCA-IMT and Framingham Score compared with preceding results of T2DM individuals. Our aim was to determine whether ultrasonographic evaluation of carotid arteries may predict cardiovascular mortality, morbidity and diabetic complications in T2DM patients.<p class="abstext...
