Background Pioglitazone, a synthetic peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR-γ) ligand, is known as an antidiabetic drug included in the thiazolidinediones (TZDs) class. It regulates the lipid and glucose cell metabolism and recently a role in the inhibition of numerous cancer cell processes has been described.

Background In patients with Normal Glucose Tolerance (NGT) some causes of ischemic heart disease (IHD) were not completely investigated. The role both of metabolic milieu and adipokines in IHD progression was not fully investigated. Our aim was to assess the link between adipokines plasma levels, insulin resistance (IR) and IHD in NGT patients undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).

Abstract Background and Aims Recently the albuminocentric view of diabetic kidney disease (DKD) in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) has been changing. Therefore, the relationship between diabetic retinopathy (DR) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) has to be addressed according to this new clinical presentation of DKD. Aim of this study was to evaluate, in a real-world setting, the correlation DR–DKD in T2DM. Methods and Results 2068 type 2 diabetic patients enrolled in a multicenter cross-sectional study we...

This review aimed to describe the potential mechanisms by which incretin hormones could mediate the relationship between glycemic index and cardiometabolic diseases. A body of evidence from many studies suggests that low glycemic index (GI) diets reduces the risk for type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease. In fact, despite the extensive literature on this topic, the mechanisms underlying unfavorable effects of high GI foods on health remain not well defined. The postprandial and hormonal mil...

Euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (euDKA) related to sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT2-I), despite being reported as consistent, though infrequent, adverse effect in all trials on SGLT2-I in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D), still remains poorly known in the real world. On the other hand, the use of this new class of antihyperglycemic agents is expected to increase based on the recent solid evidence of remarkable cardiorenal protection. Therefore, improving awareness on risk factors, ...

Abstract Aims To assess the correlation between diabetic retinopathy (DR) and potential risk factors, as well as the relationship between DR and the other complications of diabetes, in a real-life population of type 2 diabetes patients recruited in several centres in Italy. Methods The NO BLIND is a cross-sectional, multicentre, observational study, which involved nine public outpatient clinics in Italy. The patients were assessed for eligibility from November 2016 till November 2017. Those enro...

Central hypovolemia induced by orthostatic loading causes reno-vascular changes that can lead to orthostatic intolerance. In this study, we investigated volume regulating hormonal responses and reno-vascular changes in male and female subjects as they underwent central hypovolemia, induced by graded lower body negative pressure (LBNP). Aquaporin-2 (AQP2) excretion was measured as a biomarker for the renal system response to vasopressin. 37 young healthy subjects (n = 19 males; n = 18 females) we...

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of metformin therapy on coronary endothelial function and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients with prediabetes with stable angina and nonobstructive coronary stenosis (NOCS). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Metformin therapy may be needed to reduce coronary heart disease risk in patients with prediabetes. A total of 258 propensity score–matched (PSM) patients with stable angina undergoing coronary angiography were enrolled in the study. Data from 86 PSM s...
