Bone health can sometimes be improved by the use of certain supplements and dietary changes. Researchers studied whether dried plums would have a beneficial effect in men.
Using Mendelian randomization, researchers investigated which cardiovascular risk factors are likely to be implicated in the etiology of cerebral small vessel disease.
What is the combined effect of insomnia and OSA on all-cause mortality and the occurrence of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes?
The role certain blood lipid components have in the development of fatty liver disease (FLD) has been hypothesized but not confirmed. Researchers studied whether there was a correlation between remnant lipoprotein cholesterol (RLP-C) and occurrence of FLD.
Increased type 2 diabetes risk has been observed with cholesterol-lowering drugs and may be mediated by increased body mass index. Investigators examined the link.
Glycemic control in people with type 1 diabetes is challenging. Researchers investigated whether a continuous glucose monitoring-based decision support system could help.
Insulin delivered by continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion is often effective in people with type 2 diabetes vs multiple daily injections, but many still do not reach glycemic targets. Investigators sough the reason behind this challenge.
Children with type 1 diabetes require complex care, which can be stressful for them and their parents. Endocrinology Advisor spoke with pediatric psychologist Cynthia E. Munoz, PhD, MPH, about the challenges these parents face.
Liver, esophageal, endometrial and other cancers are associated with type 2 diabetes and obesity. Researchers studied whether bariatric surgery could reduce these cancer risks.
Many parents of young children with type 1 diabetes experience increased stress due to fear of their child having a hypoglycemic episode.
Premature newborns with hypothyroidism are at risk for developing severe neurological disorders. Researchers examined whether thyroid screening at birth and again later on would yield important diagnostic information.
Insulin pumps and glucose monitoring systems have improved type 1 diabetes care in children and adolescents but may bring other health issues. Researchers investigated this interaction.
The complexity of Cushing syndrome often makes diagnosis difficult. Researchers sought to create a diagnostic tool that could determine which patients may be at risk for developing the disease.
Among models and validation studies reviewed, the ABCD and DiaRem models most accurately predicted type 2 diabetes remission after bariatric surgery.
A Dutch study examined the link between adult onset asthma, metabolic syndrome, and adipose tissue inflammatory markers, including IL-6 and the leptin-adiponectin ratio.
Insulin prescriptions fell during the COVID-19 pandemic for adults with type 2 diabetes. Children with type 1 diabetes were much less affected.
A common complication in people with inflammatory bowel disease is bone disorders, including osteoporosis and osteopenia, regardless of the person’s age. Researchers in Bucharest looked at ways to access bone impairment in people with inflammatory bowel disease through diagnostic testing.
Up to 30% of all people who receive a kidney transplant develop type 2 diabetes. Researchers investigated reasons why this happens.
Investigators conducted a review to assess the role of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists in the treatment of NAFLD and NASH.
Foods rich in calcium and protein like milk, yogurt, and cheese slow bone loss and improve insulin-like growth factor 1, which promotes bone and tissue growth. Researchers studied whether adding these to the diets of people aged 80 and older at care facilities would decrease their risk of hip fractures and falls.
People with diabetes are at a higher risk of experiencing poor outcomes after contracting COVID-19, including hospitalization and death. Researchers expanded on a previous analysis to identify risk factors for short-term adverse outcomes among veterans with diabetes and COVID-19.
COVID-19 can cause additional complications and even death in people with a pre-existing conditions like type 2 diabetes. Researchers studied whether the medications people with type 2 diabetes often take were associated with a risk of dying from the virus.
The effect of Vitamin D supplements in postmenopausal women are not well documented. A group of Turkish researchers conducted a study to assess the impact of vitamin D and exercise on balance, fall risk, and quality of life in this category of women.
Polycystic ovary syndrome is often linked with metabolic syndrome and other disorders, but researchers say current screening tools are inadequate. Researchers sought to discover more precise biomarkers to screen people for polycystic ovary syndrome.
Researchers in Denmark assessed the real-world prevalence of multimorbidity among adults with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
While calcitonin is considered standard of care for the diagnosis and follow-up of medullary thyroid cancer, researchers may have found a potentially more reliable marker.
Investigators conducted a systematic review and meta-analyses to assess the relationship between oral antidiabetic medication classes and the risk of incident hepatocellular carcinoma.
Obesity in people with diabetes can shorten their lifespan. Researchers compared long-term survival outcomes with regard to use of traditional weight loss methods vs bariatric surgery.
Investigators assessed metabolic factors affecting the risk for premature rupture of membranes in pregnant women with gestational diabetes.
