OBJECTIVES To explore the difference of glucose fluctuations between the normal subjects and diabetes mellitus (DM) patients and explore their impact on the development of CAD in type 2 DM patients. METHODS The subjects were divided into 3 groups: normal control (group A, n = 40), type 2 DM patients without cardiovascular complications (group B, n = 56),(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of combination therapy of backward walking training and alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) treatment on the distribution of plantar pressure in patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). DESIGN This study is a double-blinded, randomized controlled trial. The test group was treated with combination therapy of backward(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to describe the frequency and temporal profile of acute cerebral infarction (ACI) using a continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) in patients with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and explore the impact of blood glucose fluctuations on the short-term prognosis of ACI. METHODS The subjects were divided into four(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to understand the effect of sensor-augmented insulin pump (SAP) use on hypoglycemia and blood glucose (BG) fluctuations. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Sixty patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus were randomly assigned to three groups of treatment with SAP, continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), or multiple daily(More)
In this study, a rare disease with characteristics of spontaneous osteolysis of the bone is reported. The patient was an eight-year-old male, who was admitted with shortness of breath. The absence of the right clavicle was identified by radiography. However, the change to the right clavicle was not malignant, as indicated by bone scanography. The biopsy of(More)
Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease and there is a close relationship between the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and bone metabolism. Leptin has been shown to regulate bone formation and bone resorption via the SNS. However, the effect of SNS on leptin signaling has not been clearly understood. In the present study, we studied the effect of(More)
OBJECTIVE This study determined the relationship between fasting glucose levels of cerebral infarction patients and the hospitalization time and relapse and mortality rates. METHODS A retrospective study was conducted between February 1996 and December 2006 involving 974 inpatients with cerebral infarctions. Fasting blood glucose and lipid levels and(More)
