OBJECTIVE To describe the contribution of adipocytes and adipose tissue to increased cardiometabolic risk as well as the mechanisms by which adipose tissue and obesity contribute to dysglycemia, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and a prothrombotic, inflammatory state favoring atherogenesis. METHODS A review was undertaken of the relevant available reports,(More)
AIMS To describe the clinical characteristics, and estimate the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus among Puerto Rican youth, 1995-2003. METHODS All patients aged less than 20 years with a confirmed diagnosis of type 2 diabetes were identified from pediatric endocrinologists' medical practices. Medical records of each patient were reviewed to confirm(More)
Current Clinical Management Guidelines of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) are based on adequate glucose control and symptomatic pain relief. However, meticulous glycemic control could delay the onset or slow the progression of diabetic neuropathy in patients with DM type 2, but it does not completely prevent the progression of the disease.(More)
The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) and American College of Endocrinology (ACE) convened their first Workshop for recommendations to optimize Clinical Practice Algorithm (CPA) development for Latin America (LA) in diabetes (focusing on glycemic control), obesity (focusing on weight loss), thyroid (focusing on thyroid nodule(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the state of glycemic control in noncritically ill diabetic patients admitted to the Puerto Rico University Hospital and adherence to current standard of care guidelines for the treatment of diabetes. METHODS This was a retrospective study of patients admitted to a general medicine ward with diabetes mellitus as a secondary(More)
OBJECTIVE The peculiarities of the Metabolic Syndrome in women regarding frequency, pathophysiology, manifestations and therapy will be analyzed. Recommendations will be given for prevention of metabolic syndrome and possible reduction of risks factors for cardiovascular disease. METHODS A review of pertinent studies serves as the basis for the analysis(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze cardiovascular disease (CVD) along wit it's contributing risk factors in women with diabetes mellitus (DM) and from this, to recommend prevention strategies. METHODS A review of pertinent studies serves as the basis for the analysis and recommendations of prevention strategies in this group. RESULTS Women with (DM) show a higher(More)
A healthy physiology depends on a plethora of complex interdependent biochemical reactions. In order for these reactions to occur suitably, the enzymes and cofactors that regulate their flow must be present in the proper balance. The term metabolic correction is used to describe a biochemical-physiological process that improves cellular biochemistry as a(More)
Follicular thyroid carcinoma is the second most common type of thyroid cancer, and its incidence has increased dramatically in recent years. Although it typically presents as a thyroid nodule, it can spread to distant sites via hematogenous dissemination. Bone metastasis is diagnosed clinically in 2%-13% of patients with differentiated thyroid cancer;(More)
Human physiology depends on countless biochemical reactions, numerous of which are co-dependent and interrelated. The speed and level of completion of reactions usually depend on the availability of precursors and enzymes. The enzymatic activity depends on the bioavailability of micronutrient cofactors such as vitamins and minerals. In order to achieve a(More)
