  author={A. Anwar and Muhammad Ahmed Azmi and Jamil Ahmed Siddiqui and G. Panhwar and F. Shaikh and Madiha Ariff},
Objective Diabetes has been found to be associated with low levels of thiamine stores in the body, as thiamine directly affects carbohydrate metabolism. Amplified renal clearance of thiamine has been found in both type I and type II diabetic patients. It has been shown that high-dose thiamine therapy may have a therapeutic effect on early-stage diabetic nephropathy. The aim of this study was to evaluate various biochemical parameters and serum thiamine levels in type I and type II diabetic… Expand

Biochemical changes correlated with blood thiamine and its phosphate esters levels in patients with diabetes type 1 (DMT1).
A pivotal role of blood thiamine and its phosphate esters in preventing the biochemical changes and complications in patients with DMT1 is confirmed and a strong association between bloodThiamine level and diabetes type 1 was detected in the study population. Expand
Effect of High Dose Thiamine Therapy on Risk Factors in Type 2 Diabetics
Thiamine therapy significantly improved micoalbuminuria, glycated hemoglobin, thiamine status and decreased PKC levels with no significant impact on oxidative stress and fibrinolysis profile. Expand
Thiamine deficiency and its correlation with dyslipidaemia in diabetics with microalbuminuria.
Thiamine levels were reduced in the diabetic population and this reduction in thiamine level was negatively correlated with lipid profile in microalbuminuric diabetics. Expand
Vitamin B status in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with and without incipient nephropathy.
Thiamine deficiency was highly prevalent in all groups, whereas low vitamin B₁₂ and elevated methylmalonic acid were rare and increased levels of C-reactive protein and soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 were observed in the groups with diabetes. Expand
Effect of thiamine administration on metabolic profile, cytokines and inflammatory markers in drug-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes
Thiamine administration for 1 month decreased glucose and leptin concentrations in drug-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and there were no changes with the rest of the measurements. Expand
Thiamine deficiency in diabetes mellitus and the impact of thiamine replacement on glucose metabolism and vascular disease
Thiamine administration can prevent the formation of harmful by‐products of glucose metabolism, reduce oxidative stress and improve endothelial function, and the potential benefit of long‐term replacement in those with diabetes is not yet known but may reduce cardiovascular risk and angiopathic complications.

The micronutrient thiamin is of particular interest in the management of HF for several reasons: HF is a disease of the elderly whose micronsutrient status is in need of attention; patients tend to have inadequate nutrient intake, which has been associated withThiamin deficiency; and the prevention of thiamIn deficiency should be a routine component in the overall management of this disease.
