Abstract Aims Hypoglycaemia has been shown to exert arrhythmogenic effects. Herein, we explore the association between severe hypoglycaemia requiring medical assistance and the length of the QT interval in patients with diabetes. Methods Data from a prospective study, conducted in eight tertiary hospitals, which recorded cases of hypoglycaemia from patients with diabetes seeking treatment at emergency departments (ED) were analyzed. The patients’ electrocardiograms (ECGs), were compared to those...

Diabetes is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose which leads over time to serious complications and significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Self-management tasks in diabetes may be quite challenging because of lack of training, difficulties in sustaining lifestyle modifications, and limited access to specialized healthcare. Nowadays, the evolution of mobile technology provides a large number of health-related smartphone applications (apps), aimi...

Abstract Aims Bariatric surgery leads to profound and sustainable weight loss. Gastrointestinal hormones are involved in energy and glucose homeostasis, thus postoperative changes of their circulating levels may be mediating future weight loss. To investigate how the circulating concentrations of gastrointestinal hormones change in response to the most common types of bariatric operation and whether these changes can predict future weight loss. Materials and Methods We measured circulating GLP-1...

Yoghurt naturally contains vitamins of B-complex which play a central role in energy metabolism. This study investigates the effects of consumption of yoghurt enriched with vitamins B, in comparison with conventional yoghurt, on body weight management and glycemic control of patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). Thirty-three overweight/obese patients (BMI 27–36 kg m−2) were randomized into two groups receiving two servings of non-fat yoghurt per day, either strawberry-flavored enriched ...

Abstract Bariatric surgery is currently the most effective therapeutic modality through which sustained beneficial effects on weight loss and metabolic improvement are achieved. During recent years, indications for bariatric surgery have been expanded to include cases of poorly controlled type 2 (T2DM) diabetes mellitus in lesser extremes of body weight. A spectrum of the beneficial effects of surgery is attributed to robust changes of postprandial gut peptide responses that are observed post op...

This review provides a comprehensive update on the definition, assessment, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical implications, and therapeutic approach of sarcopenic obesity (SO) and highlights the challenges, limitations, and knowledge gaps in SO research. The confluence of a rapidly aging population with rising obesity rates has led to the phenotype of SO, defined as the concurrent presence of sarcopenia and obesity. Despite efforts, a standardized definition of SO is still lacking. Its prev...

Objective The aim of our study was to investigate the potential differential effect of hyperglycaemia and hyperinsulinaemia induced by glucose infusion alone and in combination with leucine consumption on endothelial function in healthy individuals. Methods Ten male volunteers were examined in random order twice. In one visit, they consumed 250 ml water (baseline) and 30 min later glucose was infused iv. In the other visit, they consumed 250 ml water with 25 g of leucine and 30 min later the sam...

Although type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been traditionally viewed as an intractable chronic medical condition, accumulating evidence points towards the notion that a complete remission of T2DM is feasible following a choice of medical and/or surgical interventions. This has been paralleled by increasing interest in the establishment of a universal definition for T2DM remission which, under given circumstances, could be considered equivalent to a “cure”. The efficacy of bariatric surgery in ...
