Evaluation of Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) and Gamma-glutamyl Transferase (GGT) in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) at the Diabetic Clinic, Guyana

Synopsis: 
High prevalence of elevated ALT and GGT in type 2 diabetic patients showed a strong association to metformin and ethnicity in particular those of Indian decent. Family history showed a greater risk factor of high ALT followed by current illness.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the prevalence of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) abnormalities and contributing factors in adult patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus at the diabetic clinic of public hospital, Guyana.

Comparative Analysis of the Blood Flow Values of Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Presenting with Chronic Periodontitis, Patients with Chronic Periodontitis Only and Healthy Individuals

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.174
Pages: 
359–63
Synopsis: 
An increase in gingival blood flow (GBF) value was noted in the chronic periodontitis group with Type 2 diabetes mellitus compared with the group with chronic periodontitis only. Diabetes can also affect GBF due to the nature of the disease, which affects the microcirculatory status.

Nephropathy Following Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Tunisian Population

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.053
Pages: 
881–9
Synopsis: 
This paper sought to determine the prevalence of nephropathy in Type 2 diabetic patients in Tunisia. Clinical and biochemical factors as well as chronic complications of the disease were determined in comparison to healthy subjects. Regular monitoring of Type 2 diabetic patients may help prevent or delay the onset of nephropathy.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The purpose was to compare the characteristics of Tunisians with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (Type 2 DM) and nephropathy with those without nephropathy. This study assessed whether or not phenotypic characteristics can predict nephropathy development in Type 2 DM. The prevalence of nephropathy in Tunisian Type 2 DM patients, and their relationship with clinical and biochemical factors as well as chronic complications of the disease were determined.
