Diabetes mellitus is increasing at an alarming rate and has become a global challenge. Insulin resistance in target tissues and a relative deficiency of insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells are the major features of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Chronic low-grade inflammation in T2D has given an impetus to the field of immuno-metabolism linking inflammation(More)
The prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus has reached epidemic proportions worldwide. Type 2 diabetes is a consequence of complex interactions among multiple genetic variants and environmental risk factors. Polymorphisms in various candidate genes confer susceptibility to diabetes. This study was undertaken to analyse a single nucleotide polymorphism(More)
INTRODUCTION Pregnant women represent a typical group susceptible to dietary and mineral deficiencies. This study was sought to assess the efficacy and safety of various doses of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) supplementation during pregnancy and ratify the inadequacy of the recommended daily allowance for Vitamin D in vulnerable groups. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a multi-factorial disease in which both genetic and non-genetic factors interact in order to precipitate the diabetic phenotype. Among various predisposing genetic loci, a pentanucleotide (CTTTA) Del/Ins variant in the 3'-UTR of the LEPR gene is associated with type 2 diabetes and its related traits. This study was(More)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is characterized by chronic hyperglycemia associated with insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency. T2DM is believed to be attributable to the combined effect of genetic and environmental factors. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma 2 (PPARγ2) is one of the main candidate genes that are implicated in(More)
Background Gentiana kuroo Royle is a medicinally important plant of north-western Himalayas used for various ailments. In the present study, the plant extracts were investigated for the antidiabetic effects in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Methods The impact of the extracts on serum glucose levels of diabetic rats was compared with reference drug -(More)
Primary adrenal lymphomas (PAL) are rare occurrences with only less than 150 cases reported in the literature. Two-thirds of these cases were reported in the last decade due to the advancements in imaging techniques and immunohistochemistry. The non-specific signs and symptoms have resulted in a delayed onset of symptoms and diagnosis of these tumors.(More)
