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    Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) and cholesteryl ester lipase (CEL) may oxidize low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL). OBJECTIVES    The aim of the study was to determine the influence of metformin on the metabolism of atherogenic lipid fractions in relation to Lp-PLA2 and CEL levels, as well as assess consequent improvement in(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)
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)
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)
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 C-reactive protein (CRP) is one of the most widely used risk markers of cardiovascular disease in clinical practice. The contribution of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection to low-grade inflammation in diabetic patients and its significance for cardiovascular risk scoring remain unclear. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to investigate the(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)
INTRODUCTION One of the causes of impaired antioxidant response in patients with type 1 diabetes might be decreased expression of mitochondrial manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD). OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of MnSOD on transcript and protein levels in polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs) from patients with type 1(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)
