Plasma Cellular Hypoxia, Mitochondrial Dysfunction, Disease Risk and Prognostic Factors in Type 2 Diabetic Patients in Saudi Arabia

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.117
Pages: 
262-73
Synopsis: 
This study investigated the level of plasma hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1α and cytochrome c (CytoC) in correlation with C-reactive protein, dyslipidaemia, insulin resistance, and prognostic factors in Type 2 diabetic patients in Saudi Arabia. Reduced level of HIF-1α and non-significant increased level of CytoC correlated negatively with these prognostic factors. These results pointed to a possible pathogenetic implication for HIF-1α.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This cross-sectional study evaluated the association of plasma cytochrome c (CytoC) and hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1α, as mitochondrial dysfunction and cellular hypoxia biomarkers, with disease risk factors and prognosis in Type 2 diabetic patients in Saudi Arabia.

Correlation Study of Insulin Resistance and Adipocytes Factors in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.382
Synopsis: 
The aim of this study was to investigate the insulin resistance and adipocytes factors in patients with Type 2 diabetes. The results of stepwise regression analysis showed that resistin, TNF-α and FFA were significantly associated with insulin resistance index (IRI).

ABSTRACT

Objective: 30 cases of non-obese patients with type 2 diabetes, 30 cases of obese patients with type 2 diabetes and 30 cases of healthy controls were selected to detect the levels of serum resistin, TNF-α, FFA, fasting blood glucose, fasting insulin, total cholesterol and triglycerides.

Therapeutic Effects of Tanshinone IIA towards Early Renal Damage in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.376
Synopsis: 
There is a significant improvement in microalbuminuria, serum β2-croglobulin, urine B2-microglobulin and serum cystatin C by Tanshinone IIA in the management of early renal damage in patients with type 2 diabetes. Hence, Tanshinone 11A might alleviate early renal damage from diabetic nephropathy.

ABSTRACT

Aims: The present study aims to explore the role of Tanshinone IIA administration on the protective effect of early renal damage in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Issue: 
Pages: 
604–7
Synopsis: 
Research has implicated Kir 6.2 (KCNJ11) as a diabetes susceptibility gene. Positive risk correlation has been detected in European and Asian populations. A subset of Trinidadians was screened, revealing novel variants in this gene and positive disease association in Indo-Trinidadians.
 
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: To examine the effect of genetic variation in KCNJ11 on the risk of Type 2 diabetes mellitus in Trinidadians.

The Urinary Levels of Some Essential and Toxic Metals in Type 2 Diabetic Patients and Non-diabetic Healthy Control Human Subjects

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.134
Synopsis: 
Elevated level of metals in blood is reflected in urine of the human diabetic subjects. As an increased urinary excretion of metals causes decrease in blood plasma level of that particular metal and vice versa. Toxic metals such as Pb may have a role to induce renal tubular dysfunction in diabetic patients. Subsequently, dysfunctional kidneys may become a potential source for the loss of several essential TE through urine voiding rather than their retention in blood plasma /serum in order to retain the homeostasis of blood and other tissues.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare the levels of some selected essential and toxic metals in type 2 diabetic (T2D) patients and non-diabetic (ND) healthy controls. Furthermore, study aims to evaluate the possible interrelationship of metals in urine of type 2 diabetic (T2D) patients and non-diabetic (ND) healthy controls.
