Adiponectin, an adipose tissue-specific plasma protein, was recently revealed to have anti-inflammatory effects on the cellular components of vascular wall. Its plasma levels were significantly lower in men than in women and lower in human subjects with obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, or coronary artery disease. Therefore, it may provide a biological(More)
The goal of this study was to identify risk factors for diabetic peripheral sensory neuropathy in type 2 diabetes mellitus in a Chinese population. Peripheral sensory neuropathy was detected by quantitative sensory testing (5.07/10 g monofilament, neurometer and 128-Hz Riedel Seiffert graduated tuning fork). Those who had two or more abnormal quantitative(More)
The mineralocorticoid hormone, aldosterone, is known to play a role in sodium homeostasis. We serendipitously found, however, highly significant association between single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the aldosterone synthase gene and plasma glucose levels in a large population of Chinese and Japanese origin. Two polymorphisms--one in the putative promoter(More)
Plasma-glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), i.e., an indicator of metabolic control in diabetic patients, was measured and correlated with neuromuscular jitter and fiber density, which were obtained by single-fiber (SF) EMG assessment. Of the 112 diabetic patients who participated in this study, 34 clinically non-neuropathic patients were categorized in group(More)
