Late Acute Intermittent Porphyria Attack In A Patient With Type 2 Diabetes
Abstract Background. Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is a hereditary metabolic aberration resulting from a partial defect in the activity of the enzyme porphobilinogen deaminase (PBDG) during theExpand
Evolution of Inflammatory and Oxidative Stress Markers in Romanian Obese Male Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus after Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy: One Year Follow-Up
Geography is one of the key drivers of the significant variation in the etiopathogenic profile and prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obesity, therefore geographically based data areExpand
Prospective Analysis of L-arginine Dependent Nitric Oxide Production in the Blood of Patients with Type 2 Diabetes 5 Years after First Clinical Onset
Objective: Our study is the first prospective investigation of the L-arginine (L-arg)–nitric oxide (NO) metabolic pathway in the erythrocytes (RBCs) and plasma of subjects with type 2 diabetes.Expand
