Role of insulin in the regulation of human skeletal muscle protein synthesis and breakdown: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Aims/hypothesisWe aimed to investigate the role of insulin in regulating human skeletal muscle metabolism in health and diabetes.MethodsWe conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of publishedExpand
Exenatide improves excessive daytime sleepiness and wakefulness in obese patients with type 2 diabetes without obstructive sleep apnoea
We investigate the effects of exenatide on excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), driving performance and depression score in patients with type 2 diabetes with EDS. Eight obese patients with diabetesExpand
Network analysis of human muscle adaptation to aging and contraction
Resistance exercise (RE) remains a primary approach for minimising aging muscle decline. Understanding muscle adaptation to individual contractile components of RE (eccentric, concentric) mightExpand
An Update on Endoscopic Mechanical and Powered Dacryocystorhinostomy in Acute Dacryocystitis and Lacrimal Abscess.
PURPOSE To provide a brief review of the literature on the utility and outcomes of endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) in patients with acute dacryocystitis (ADC) and lacrimal abscess. METHODSExpand
Physiological mechanisms of action of incretin and insulin in regulating skeletal muscle metabolism.
Type II diabetes (T2D) is a progressive condition affecting approximately 350 million adults worldwide. Whilst skeletal muscle insulin resistance and beta-cell dysfunction are recognised causes ofExpand
The acute transcriptional response to resistance exercise: impact of age and contraction mode
Optimization of resistance exercise (RE) remains a hotbed of research for muscle building and maintenance. However, the interactions between the contractile components of RE (i.e. concentric (CON)Expand
Glucagon‐like peptide 1 infusions overcome anabolic resistance to feeding in older human muscle
Despite its known insulin‐independent effects, glucagon‐like peptide‐1 (GLP‐1) role in muscle protein turnover has not been explored under fed‐state conditions or in the context of older age, whenExpand
The effect of oral essential amino acids on incretin hormone production in youth and ageing
The effect of substantive doses of essential amino acids (EAA) on incretin and insulin production, and the impact of age upon this effect, is ill‐defined.
Ruptured Globe due to a Bird Attack
Introduction: Bird attacks are in general an uncommon event. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in Bahrain. There have been very few cases reported worldwide. Mainly, birds attackExpand
Amino acid modulation of gut hormone release and defining roles of GLP-1 and insulin in muscle microcirculation and metabolism in older age
Background: Skeletal muscle’s role as an organ extends beyond its classical function of locomotion. It represents an important metabolic repository for both glucose and amino acids. Its responses toExpand
