OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of a 4-month strength training (ST) versus aerobic endurance training (ET) program on metabolic control, muscle strength, and cardiovascular endurance in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D). DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. SETTING Large public tertiary hospital. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-two T2D participants (11(More)
OBJECTIVE:Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a late consequence of severe liver disease. Patients with genetic hemochromatosis may be at risk for HCC, but limited information is available on the relationship of HCC and heterozygosity for the HFE gene mutations.METHODS:HFE mutations (C282Y and H63D) were assessed in 162 consecutive patients (131 men/31 women)(More)
BACKGROUND Although both strength training (ST) and endurance training (ET) seem to be beneficial in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D), little is known about post-exercise glucose profiles. The objective of the study was to report changes in blood glucose (BG) values after a 4-month ET and ST programme now that a device for continuous glucose monitoring has(More)
Marathon running is growing in popularity, and many diabetic patients are participating in various marathon races all over the world each year. This study aimed to investigate the prevalence and extent of glycemic excursions (hypo- and hyperglycemic) during a marathon run in patients with well-controlled diabetes mellitus using a continuous glucose(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS We investigated the effect of Infliximab, an anti TNF-alpha antibody, on plasma lipids and lipoproteins in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. METHODS Five male and 10 female patients with a mean age of 56.7 years were included in this study. Seven of the patients were diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and 8(More)
OBJECTIVE Aminoterminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), like brain natriuretic peptide, might have diagnostic utility in detecting left ventricular hypertrophy and/or left ventricular dysfunction. The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between morbid obesity and NT-proBNP and the effect of weight reduction on this parameter. (More)
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) suffer from muscle loss, causing reduced muscle strength and endurance. The current study aimed to: (1) evaluate the effects of combined strength and endurance training (CT) on disease activity and functional ability in patients with RA and (2) investigate the benefits of a 6-month supervised CT program on muscle(More)
EINLEITUNG: Der Effekt von körperlichem Training in der Behandlung des Diabetes mellitus ist gut etabliert. Die Absicht dieser Untersuchung wares, die Langzeit Effekte von einer 8 monatigen Trainingstherapie auf den Glukose- und Fettstoffwechsel zu untersuchen und dies mit Patienten, die nach 4 Monaten ihr Training beendet hatten, zu vergleichen. METHODIK:(More)
BACKGROUND Hereditary hemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder of iron metabolism that is characterized by excess accumulation of iron in various organs and often leads to diabetes mellitus (DM). To study whether mutations in the hemochromatosis gene (HFE) could be a risk factor for the development of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), the(More)
HINTERGRUND: Um detaillierte Informationen über das Blutdruckprofil von PatientInnen während ihrer Tagesaktivitäten zu erhalten, gewann der Einsatz eines ambulanten 24-Stunden Blutdruckmesssystems an Bedeutung. Das Ziel unserer Studie war es, den Effekt eines regelmäßigen Krafttrainings auf das 24-Stunden Blutdruckverhalten bei PatientInnen mit Diabetes(More)
