Individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) may be at risk of developing gastric cancer even after receiving Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication therapy, demonstrated a study from Hong Kong.
The coexistence of diabetes mellitus (DM) in Asian patients with heart failure (HF) who were receiving cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) attenuated CRT-induced left ventricular (LV) reverse modelling — a predictor of event-free survival — and was associated with worse clinical outcomes compared with patients without T2D, the PEACH* study shows.
A Mediterranean-based eating plan supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil helped delay the initiation of glucose-lowering medications among individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) controlled with lifestyle management, according to a subgroup analysis of the PREDIMED* trial.
Lower age at onset of first menstruation poses an increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) later in life, possibly driven by adult body mass index (BMI), whereas later menarche is associated with reduced diabetes risk, a study has found.
Progressive lipolysis may be reduced via the improved antilipolytic effect in adipose tissue, which leads to a reduction in future weight loss caused by sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), suggests a recent study.
Maternal prepregnancy obesity is associated with earlier age at voice break, pubic hair development, axillary hair and acne in sons, as well as with earlier age at menarche, breast development, pubic hair development, axillary hair and acne in daughters, a study has found. These associations appear to be mediated by higher childhood body mass index in sons and partly so in daughters.
