Biochemicophysiological Mechanisms Underlying Signs and Symptoms Associated with Diabetes mellitus

  title={Biochemicophysiological Mechanisms Underlying Signs and Symptoms Associated with Diabetes mellitus},
  author={Michael Buenor Adinortey},
Diabetes mellitus is a disorder, which has become a major health burden all over the world. This metabolic disorder currently has no cure A search of database sites such as Medline, Elsevier, Springer, Science Direct, PubMed, Google Scholar, Web of science, as well as other sources of literature available across public libraries was conducted to obtain information related to the topic. This review has presented a discussion on the biochemical and physiological mechanisms underlying the…

Phytomedicines Used for Diabetes Mellitus in Ghana: A Systematic Search and Review of Preclinical and Clinical Evidence
Information is obtained on medicinal plants used to manage diabetes mellitus in Ghana, including their pharmacological properties and mechanisms of action as well as models used to investigate them, which provides gaps that can form the basis for further investigations and development into useful medications for effective treatment of diabetes Mellitus.
Standardization of type 1 and type 2 diabetic nephropathy models in rats: Assessment and characterization of metabolic features and renal injury
The study proposes reproducible and cost-effective rat models for both T1DM- and T2DM-induced diabetic nephropathy characterized by stable metabolic features and typical renal lesions.
Inhibition of α-amylase activity by extracts from Leptocarpha rivularis stalks obtained with supercritical CO2
Abstract We studied supercritical extraction with ethanol-modified CO2, combining different levels of temperature (40 and 60 °C) and pressure (20, 30 and 40 MPa), to obtain extracts from Leptocarpha


Mechanisms of diabetic complications.
The well validated, as well as putative mechanisms involved in the development of diabetic complications are discussed and new fields of research, which warrant further investigation as potential therapeutic targets of the future, will be highlighted.
Diabetes mellitus, part 1: physiology and complications.
The physiology and complications of diabetes mellitus (DM) are discussed, a chronic and progressive disorder which affects all ages of the population and may be caused by factors such as environmental aspects, diet, an ageing population and low levels of physical exercise.
Epigenetic mechanisms in diabetic complications and metabolic memory
The emerging role of epigenetics and epigenomics in the vascular complications of diabetes and metabolic memory is highlighted and can shed novel new insights into the pathology of diabetic complications, but also lead to the identification of much needed new drug targets.
Diabetes, oxidative stress, and antioxidants: A review
There is a need to continue to explore the relationship between free radicals, diabetes, and its complications, and to elucidate the mechanisms by which increased oxidative stress accelerates the development of diabetic complications, in an effort to expand treatment options.
Type 2 diabetes: epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis.

The epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis of type 2 diabetes is explored and risk factors associated with the development of this disorder are identified.
ENDOCRINOLOGY OF PREGNANCY: Gestational diabetes mellitus: definition, aetiological and clinical aspects.
The pathogenesis and aetiology of GDM is revisited in order to better understand its clinical presentation and outcomes and screening recommendations and diagnosis criteria have been recently updated.
Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors in the early treatment of type 2 diabetes
Its beneficial effects on glycated hemoglobin are comparable to metformin or thiazolidinediones, and probably slightly inferior to sulphonylurea, while in view of the total body of evidence met formin seems to be superior to AGIs.
Definition, diagnosis and classification of diabetes mellitus and its complications. Part 1: diagnosis and classification of diabetes mellitus. Provisional report of a WHO Consultation

  • Medicine
    Diabetic medicine : a journal of the British Diabetic Association
  • 1998
A WHO Consultation has taken place in parallel with a report by an American Diabetes Association Expert Committee to re‐examine diagnostic criteria and classification of diabetes mellitus and is hoped that the new classification will allow better classification of individuals and lead to fewer therapeutic misjudgements.
The value of early detection of type 2 diabetes
The magnitude of any potential benefit of early detection and treatment has yet to be quantitated in a randomized controlled trial and this information will be available in 2010 when the Anglo-Danish-Dutch Study of Intensive Treatment and Complication reports its findings.
Pathogenesis of Fasting and Postprandial Hyperglycemia in Type 2 Diabetes: Implications for Therapy
An understanding of the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes will enable the development of targeted therapies that are directed toward correcting specific metabolic defects in a given individual, and it is believed that such therapies are likely to be more effective and to have a lower risk than would occur if everyone were treated the same regardless of the underlying cause of their hyperglycemia.
