OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the concentration of interleukin 12 (IL-12), the activity of phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)), and platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) in type 1 diabetes (DM1) patients treated with intensive insulin therapy. DESIGN AND METHODS Studied parameters were measured in 81 patients, who were subdivided(More)
INTRODUCTION Poor metabolic control of type 1 diabetes is one of the most important factors accelerating the development of late diabetic complications. Several other factors that might contribute to this process are currently being investigated. Low paraoxonase 1 (PON1) activity and high lipid peroxide (LPO) levels contribute to endothelial damage, but it(More)
The current review presents up-to-date knowledge on tuberculosis (TB) in diabetic patients. On the basis of available literature, there is little doubt about the close relationship between these two conditions. Diabetes mellitus in this association may still contribute substantially to the burden of TB and negatively affect control of the latter. Chronic(More)
Incidence of diabetes is increasing worldwide at an alarming rate. Therefore, a proper understanding of the mechanisms and efficient treatment of the disease is becoming increasingly important. The article briefly describes controversies in type 1 diabetes (T1DM) pathogenesis and diagnosis (genetic background, accelerator hypothesis, new autoantibodies, new(More)
INTRODUCTION Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are important in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and reflect the risk of cardiovascular mortality. AGE levels are significantly higher in patients with diabetes. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to compare AGE accumulation in the skin of patients with type 1 diabetes and nondiabetic population as(More)
The study was aimed at comparing the concentration of metabolic parameters, the serum concentration of oxidized low density lipoproteins (oxLDL) and the activity of platelet activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) in the relation to the serum concentration of magnesium (Mg) in patients with type 1 diabetes (DM1). DM1 patients (n=78) were divided into 2(More)
Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is an autoimmune disease that requires insulin treatment from the time of diagnosis. Its clinical course depends on both genetic and environmental factors, and the lifestyle of a patient modulates their interaction. The evidence about the influence of lifestyle on the course of T1DM is increasing. In this paper, we present evidence on(More)
Thyroid disorders are more frequently observed in diabetic patients. These conditions have been shown to be mainly of autoimmune origin and all of them may lead to hormonal imbalance. Especially strong links exist between autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD) and type 1 diabetes. Importantly, both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can adversely affect(More)
INTRODUCTION Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to assess the skin accumulation of AGEs in patients with long‑lasting type 1 diabetes in relation to the presence of DPN. PATIENTS AND METHODS We evaluated 178 patients with type 1 diabetes(More)
Classification of diabetes type in adults patients remains difficult. This study was undertaken to determine the relationship between presence of autoantibodies in the serum and the result of glucagon stimulation test in non obese patients at aged above 35 years with newly diagnosed diabetes.Study involved 52 non obese adults aged 42 years [interquartile(More)
