AIMS/INTRODUCTION Glyoxalase 1 catalyses the detoxification of methylglyoxal, a major precursor of advanced glycation end products associated with aging, neurodegenerative diseases, and microvascular complications of diabetes. Here, we examine a possible association of a single nucleotide polymorphism of glyoxalase 1 gene (Glo1 A332C, rs4746 or rs2736654)(More)
BACKGROUND Predicting an individual's success in a non-surgical weight loss approach is a demanding need since obesity is becoming an epidemic burden. A possible predictive marker is myostatin, a member of the transforming growth factor b superfamily, which has been shown to be an important regulator of muscle homeostasis. METHODS In the present study, we(More)
The incidence of type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus has been increasing simultaneously. Formerly, these two patients' populations could be differentiated easily, but now, due to the overlapping of both groups, specified diagnostics are necessary. In order to substantiate a suspicion on diabetes, quantifying venous plasma glucose is the gold standard in(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of onsite screening with a nonmydriatic, digital fundus camera for diabetic retinopathy (DR) at a diabetes outpatient clinic. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This cross-sectional study included 502 patients, 112 with type 1 and 390 with type 2 diabetes. Patients attended screenings for microvascular complications, including(More)
The attrition of telomeres is believed to be a key event not only in mammalian aging, but also in disturbed nutrient sensing, which could lead to numerous metabolic dysfunctions. The current debate focuses mainly on the question whether telomere shortening, e.g., as a heritable trait, may act as a cause or rather represents a consequence of such chronic(More)
