Our aim was to determine the incidence of prediabetes and risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This prospective, observational study included 148 women with PCOS, without Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and CVD present at baseline. In the fasting blood samples, we measured lipids, glucose, and insulin levels during oral glucose tolerance test, levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), steroids, 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD), prolactin, thyroid-stimulating hormone, and parathyroid hormone...

BACKGROUND: This study investigated the possible effects of metabolic syndrome on bone mineral density (BMD) and bone turnover markers in Turkish postmenopausal women. METHOD: This prospective case-control study included a total of 230 postmenopausal women, between 45 and 65 years old, including 63 with metabolic syndrome and 167 without metabolic syndrome on the basis of the International Diabetes Federation criteria. The height, weight, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, hip circumference, and waist-to-hip ratio of each subject were measured...

OBJECTIVES: To study the effect of Vitamin D3 supplementation on metabolic control in an obese type 2 diabetes Emirati population. METHODS: This randomized double-blind clinical trial was conducted with 87 vitamin D-deficient obese, type 2 diabetic participants. The vitamin D-group (n=45) and the placebo group (n=42) were matched for gender, age, HbA1c and 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25(OH) D) at the baseline. The study was divided into two phases of 3 months each; in phase 1, the vitamin D-group received 6000 IU vitamin D3/day followed by 3000 IU vitamin D3/day in phase 2, whereas the placebo group (n=42) received matching placebo...

The pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus is complex and not fully understood. However, it emerges as an abnormal metabolic condition associated with a systemic damage to the vascular bed. Cumulative evidence also reveals that the endocrine system is not intact in patients with diabetes mellitus. It is not clear whether the changes observed in the endocrine system represent a primary defect or reflect the effects of the impaired insulin action and abnormal carbohydrate and lipid metabolism on the hormonal milieu...

Diabetes mellitus in pregnancy causes congenital malformations in the offspring. The aim of this work was to characterize biochemical and morphologic anomalies in the conceptus of an animal model of diabetic pregnancy. In addition, a preventive treatment against diabetes-induced dysmorphogenesis was developed. Congenital cataract was often found in the offspring of diabetic rats. The fetal lenses had increased water accumulation, sorbitol concentration and aldose reductase activity compared to control lenses...

Hexakis (2-methoxyisobutylisonitrile) technetium-99m (99mTc-SestaMIBI) is a radiopharmaceutical used in nuclear medicine for myocardial perfusion imaging. In the literature different non-cardiac applications of 99mTc-SestaMIBI have been reported. Clinical studies have been performed also in non-oncologic disease (such as thyroid adenoma, diabetic foot, osteomyelitis, pulmonary actinomycosis, aneurysmal bone cyst. Sudeck's atrophy). Several models for the uptake mechanism of this radiopharmaceutical have been proposed such as binding to an 8-10 kDa cytosolic protein, simple lipid partitioning, or a membrane translocation mechanism involving diffusion and passive transmembrane distribution...
