An imbalance between pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokine productions in adipose tissue is thought to contribute to chronic, systemic, low-grade inflammation and consequently to an increased risk of cardiovascular complications in obese and type 2 diabetic patients. Nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), whose serum levels are elevated in such patients, have been(More)
Bariatric surgery is currently one of the most effective treatments for obesity and leads to significant weight reduction, improved cardiovascular risk factors and overall survival in treated patients. To date, most studies focused on short-term effects of bariatric surgery on the metabolic profile and found high variation in the individual responses to(More)
To determine whether acutely-induced supraphysiological hyperinsulinemia influences brain metabolism in patients with type 1 diabetes (D) and healthy controls (C) as detected by MR Spectroscopy. Group D consisted of 4 patients with the average duration of diabetes for 7 years. They were matched according to age, sex and BMI to 4 healthy controls. 1H MR(More)
Ectopic lipid accumulation in skeletal muscle is associated with insulin resistance. Telmisartan improves metabolic parameters in type 2 diabetic patients. The aim of our study was to evaluate the in vivo effect of telmisartan on intramyocellular lipid content (IMCL) in subjects with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) by magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS).(More)
