PURPOSE Low-grade inflammation, a common feature in type 2 diabetes (DM2), causes some chronic complications in these patients. The present study was aimed to evaluate the effects of ginger (Zingiber officinale) on pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6 and TNF-α) and the acute phase protein hs-CRP in DM2 patients as a randomized double-blind placebo controlled(More)
BACKGROUND Since tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) could be one of the risk factors at the development of diabetes complications; as well as serum leptin deficiency is related to increased susceptibility to infections in diabetic patients, they are potential indices from the preventive medicine viewpoint. This study was conducted to represent the effect of(More)
BACKGROUND There are few epidemiologic studies on vitamin D status of postmenopausal women in the Middle East countries. This study aimed to investigate the 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in postmenopausal women living in the north-west of Iran. METHODS Using the records of the local household registry, 300 cases were enrolled by simple random sampling. Serum(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes is a global health problem in the world. Probiotic food has anti-diabetic property. The aim of this trial was to determine the effect of probiotic fermented milk (kefir) on glucose and lipid profile control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS This randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted on(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of the current study was to assess the effects of royal jelly supple-mentation on body weight, total daily energy and macronutrients intakes in type2 diabetic fe-males. METHODS In this randomized clinical trial, fifty female volunteers with type2 diabetes were as-signed into the supplemented (n=25) and placebo (n=25) groups, given(More)
INTRODUCTION Proteinuria and albuminuria are established risk factors for progressive renal damage. Albuminuria can be effectively controlled by antihypertensive drugs that interrupt the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. However, the efficiency of N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) in preventing diabetic nephropathy is uncertain. Renoprotective effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes is the fourth major public health problem worldwide. Royal Jelly (RJ) insulin-like activity and blood glucose modulating properties have been reported in animal and healthy volunteers. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to investigate the effect of a single dose of fresh RJ as a complementary therapy on glycemic response in patients(More)
In the recent years, temperature and pH-sensitive hydrogels were developed as suitable carriers for drug delivery. In this study, four different pH-sensitive nanohydrogels were designed for an oral insulin delivery modeling. NIPAAm–MAA–HEM copolymers were synthesized by radical chain reaction with 80:8:12 ratios respectively. Reactions were carried out in(More)
BACKGROUND Iodine is essential element in thyroid hormones synthesis and normal growth and development of the brain. Milk and iodine concentrations can be appropriate indicator of body iodine status; in this study, we evaluated the concentrations of urine and milk iodine in newborns and their mothers. METHODS In a cross-sectional study conducted in 2013,(More)
BACKGROUND Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR γ) is a transcription factor, which is abundantly expressed in adipose tissue and has a direct link to adiposity. It seems that long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) can regulate PPAR γ expression. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of n-3LC PUFA(More)
