The effects on serum lipid levels of reducing stress were examined in 20 patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. An anxiolytic, fludiazepam, was administered to the patients for 12 weeks and their lipid profiles and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory scores at the beginning and end of treatment were compared. The high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level increased significantly after the administration of anxiolytic, but other aspects of the lipid profile were unchanged. Both trait…

The relationship of depression and anxiety among diabetic patients with changes in the components of lipid profile

Investigation of the presence of depression and anxiety symptoms in diabetic patients and their association with various components of lipid profile found depression was related to lower high density lipoproteins, and to lower total cholesterol level, and anxiety was strongly related toLower high density Lipoprotein and to higher triglycerides level.

Psychological Issues in Adults with Type 2 Diabetes

The importance of treatment approaches that focus on the role of health behaviors and treatment adherence when addressing psychological problems in patients with type 2 diabetes, in order to maximize the potential health benefits of treatment is emphasized.

Diabetes: insulin resistance and derangements in lipid metabolism. Cure through intervention in fat transport and storage

Multiple findings on derangements in lipid metabolism in type 2 diabetes are presented, confirming that peripheral adipose tissue is closely regulated, performing a vital role of buffering fluxes of FFA in the circulation.

The global epidemic of type 2 diabetes is a major public health problem, with the world prevalence among adults estimated to be 6.4% for 2010. By 2030, it is expected that the burden of diabetes will

Anxiety and endocrine disease.

It is our goal in this article to review the literature and define those endocrinological diseases that often include anxiety states as part of their initial presentation or as a characteristic



Stress and Autonomic Nervous System in Type II Diabetes: A Hypothesis

It is shown that hyperglycemia can be produced by chemical stimulation of the brain with morphine as well as with a variety of endogenous neuropeptides and can be abolished by bilateral adrenalectomy.

Serum triglycerides determined colorimetrically with an enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide.

In this direct colorimetric procedure, serum triglycerides are hydrolyzed by lipase, and the released glycerol is assayed in a reaction catalyzed by glycerol kinase and L-alpha-glycerol-phosphate

Preparation and properties of a cholesterol oxidase from Nocardia sp. and its application to the enzymatic assay of total cholesterol in serum.

In the procedure presented here, hydrogen peroxide is measured by reaction with quadrivalent titanium and xylenol orange, which constitutes a one-enzyme assay with stable reagents, which does not require protein precipitation and is not subject to interference from hemoglobin or bilirubin.

Short‐Term Effect of Natural Disasters on Coronary Heart Disease Risk Factors

The acute stress associated with major disasters can influence risk factors for coronary heart disease and permanent elevation of these risk factors due to the disruption of the social environment of the individuals affected by major disasters might be responsible for the apparent long-term adverse effects on cardiovascular mortality.

Rapid method for the isolation of lipoproteins from human serum by precipitation with polyanions.

With a single preparative ultracentrifugation, immunologically pure high density lipoproteins can be isolated from large volumes of serum.
