We have investigated whether von Willebrand factor, ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type 1 motif, member 13), and D-Dimer were associated with different levels of renal function in patients with type 1 diabetes. Patients were classified according to level of renal function through estimated glomerular filtration rate: ≥90(More)
BACKGROUND Glycated hemoglobin (A1C) and Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) are the two monitoring blood glucose tests most frequently used. However, both methods are shown to be insensitive to detect glycemic variations in short duration periods. Therefore, we aimed to assess the effect of a short-term exercise program on glycemic levels measured by fructosamine(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of diabetes mellitus is increasing worldwide, resulting in a global epidemic. The most common type, the type 2 diabetes mellitus, constitutes of 90-95 % of the cases and is characterized by the action of and/or impaired insulin secretion. Regular exercise is a recommended strategy in several studies and guidelines for type 2(More)
Comparison among Asian, Afro-Caribbeans, and white Caucasians with type 2 diabetes P atients with type 2 diabetes have two to three times the risk of dying prematurely from cardiovascular disease than their nondiabetic counterparts (1). Many studies have shown that arterial compliance is reduced in type 2 diabetes and that arterial stiffness increases with(More)
A retrospective study was conducted on 186 patients with differentiated thyroid cancer without metastases who received an ablative dose of 100 mCi (3.7 GBq) iodine-131 after total thyroidectomy. Six months to one year after ablation, 155/186 patients (83%) had a negative scan. Diagnostic scanning with 5 mCi (185 MBq) performed 72 h or 3 months before(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the presence of insulin resistance (IR) in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) according to the estimated glucose disposal rate formula (eGDR) and the insulin sensitivity score (ISS) and to estimate the correlation between these two measures and identify the clinical and laboratory markers related to IR. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS(More)
This study aimed at investigating the association between haemostatic biomarkers, proinflammatory, and anti-inflammatory cytokines with chronic kidney disease in type 1 diabetic patients. Patients were divided into two groups: with nephropathy (albuminuria ≥ 30 mg/g and/or GFR < 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2)), n = 65; and without nephropathy (albuminuria < 30 mg/g(More)
