The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of tubular damage in short-term (less than five years) type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients and to explore the correlation between tubular markers and their relationship with renal indices at different stages of diabetic nephropathy. A group of 101 short-term T2DM patients and 28 control(More)
AIM To assess whether glomerular hyperfiltration (GHF) could result in renal tubular damage in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. METHODS Reference value of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was determined in 248 healthy individuals based on serum CysC levels. GHF was defined as an eGFR exceeding the sex-specific 97.5th percentile in(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between urinary Smad1 and glomerular hyperfiltration (GHF) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and to explore the factors related to the urinary Smad1 in T2DM. The reference value of the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was determined in 248 healthy individuals. 30 patients with GHF, 58(More)
We compared urinary liver-type fatty acid-binding protein (L-FABP) among non-pregnant and pregnant women with and without gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Higher urinary L-FABP was found in pregnant with and without GDM, and considerably higher urinary L-FABP was found in the GDM group compared with the non-GDM group. Hyperglycemia and anemia were(More)
This case-control study was designed to establish a new risk-prediction model for primary stroke using Framingham stroke profile (FSP), cerebral vascular hemodynamic indexes (CVHI) and plasma inflammatory cytokines including hs-CRP, IL-6, TNF-α and Lp-PLA2. A total of 101 primary stroke patients admitted to Dongguan Houjie Hospital between August 2014 and(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the diagnostic value of color Doppler ultrasonography for epididymitis. METHODS High frequency color Doppler ultrasonography was performed in 42 patients with epididymitis and 21 health volunteers. RESULTS Compared with control group, epididymis enlarged significantly all in head, body and tail in 92% of patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the value of Tei index and the sensitivity of left versus right ventricular Tei index in evaluating the fetal cardiac function in pregnancy-induced hypertension syndrome in the third trimester. METHODS Fetal echocardiograms were performed in 30 women with pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) syndrome and 55 with normal pregnancy(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the urinary level of tissue factor (uTF) and its procoagulant activity (PCA) in patients with diabetes mellitus, and explore the relationship between uTF and renal damage in diabetes mellitus. METHODS Eighty-six patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus were divided into 3 groups according to urine albumin excretion (UACR), namely normal(More)
